Chimera Software today announced the upcoming release of Naval Tactics: Captains of the Spanish Main, a fresh way to experience the tactical board war game genre on iPhone, iPod, and iPad. A modern take inspired by old classics, this brand new adventure into turn-based naval combat will leave your tactical mind reeling.
“After spending three years on our hit 4X space strategy game Starbase Orion, I wanted to bring things back down to Earth for a while” said Rocco Bowling, founder of Chimera Software. “Naval Tactics is focused on tactical naval combat in the 1700′s. Ship battles in the Age of Sail are unique in their tactical complexity, where the use of wind for positioning and fleet formations are critical components to dominating your enemy. Combine this with savvy turn-based mechanics on a hex map, mix in some traditional board game mechanics and the final combination is a savory bite any strategy/tactical gamer will savor.”
