Modern Combat Just Landed in the Palm of Your Hand as “This Means WAR!” Launches on iOS Today

The gauntlet has officially been thrown in the battle to create the most innovative and genre-busting real-time strategy (RTS) game for mobile devices as TapZen, Inc. announced today that This Means WAR! is available for free for iPad and iPhone. Designed by the team that brought you several games in the Command & Conquer franchise, This Means WAR! takes a giant leap forward in mobile strategy gaming by putting the modern battlefield at your fingertips. Players will command armies of tanks, soldiers, helicopters, and bombers as they attack the enemy’s forces and simultaneously go after their home bases. Furious army-on-army and base-on-base combat action is combined with strategy, resource management, and base building in a way that is unprecedented in the genre. This Means WAR! is full-spectrum warfare in the palm of your hand, because half-spectrum warfare is just kind of, “meh.” Players can download the game on the App Store here.

“It’s an honor to finally unleash This Means WAR! on strategy gamers around the world. Our team of industry veterans have come together to create a truly innovative RTS game that will revolutionize mobile strategy games for years to come,” said Amir Rahimi, General Manager at TapZen. “We’re committed to making great strategy games for tablets and smartphones, and that journey starts with This Means WAR!”

In addition to introducing army-on-army combat and base-on-base warfare to the genre, This Means WAR! also delivers the most requested feature mobile strategy gamers crave: the ability to attack your friends. With this feature, players can attack their Game Center or Facebook friends and earn valuable Power Cells for doing so.

TapZen is led by a team of industry veterans with a proven track record of creating hits. The team’s experience chronicles the creation of traditional, social and casual games across the PC, console, F2P and social spaces, and the management team alone has credits on games that have sold more than 40MM units worldwide for megahit franchises such as Halo, Command & Conquer and Gears of War. TapZen is focused on creating unforgettable mid-core games for a massively emerging market of gamers on both tablet and mobile. The company is backed with $18M in funding from Chinese internet company, Tencent, and social game company, Zynga. This Means WAR! was created in partnership with Magic Pixel Games, also based in Los Angeles.
