Big Sandwich Games announced today that their award-winning strategy title Hoard is available for purchase in North America on the PSP system. To celebrate, the publisher has also put the PS3 version on sale.
Both versions are currently selling for the low price of $9.99, although the PS Network.3 system discount is for a limited time only. The titles can be purchased via the PlayStation
Hoard puts players in the role of a dragon, fighting against towns, knights, giants, wizards, and thieves in a quest to gather as much gold as possible. The game includes over 35 levels, single player challenges, co-op and competitive multiplayer (PS3), and 90+ badges to earn. The gameplay is a cross between a dual-stick arcade shooter and an RTS, with significant elements of strategy and deeper systems. Joystiq.com notes, “Hoard’s gameplay shines.”
“It’s hard to find this much destruction and fun for such a low price,” observes Tyler Sigman, the game’s designer. “Torment villages, kidnap princesses, and burn down castles – all for the cost of a muffin and a latte!”
