Craneballs today proudly introduces 33rd Division 1.0.1, their newest game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. 33rd Division is a stealth-action game from World War 2 that draws inspiration from the masterpiece game Commandos. Players become leaders of the famous 33rd Division and must lead the men past German patrols unnoticed and unharmed. The game requires tactical thinking and quick reactions.
The War is under way and the Allies desperately need reinforcements to secure their position on the front. Only you can provide enough Engineers, Medics and Sargeants to win the war. You draw the line between glory and defeat!
The complicated history of the long-term re-deployment:
Craneballs originally released the game in 2009, but took it down, because they felt it was outdated. The game saw great reactions (and made it top 5 overall in Germany) and Craneballs intended to polish the game up and put it back online. Yet they were tangled in other projects and the resources were limited. Fortunately, e-mails from players of the original game kept coming, asking about the whereabouts of the game, which persuaded Craneballs to give it a go.
The work started in Autumn 2012. Some people might think that a year is a long time for a remake, and there might be some truth to that, but that's how we make games. We believe good things need time to ripe well.
At the beginning of the development 33rd Division was considered a sort of a gift to loyal players of the original, but during the work it turned out the new 33rd Division has far surpassed the original. It feels fresh, it looks and plays great on iPads and the new inventory items add a completely new dimension to the game. The German gamers were the ones who wanted to have their way with the patrols (which is why we added the grenades and sniper to the new inventory). Beating your friends' scores is too much of fun to miss.
What's new apart from HD graphics and iPad support?
* Inventory with a bunch of support items! It's sniping and hand grenading time. Too bad for the German patrols
* Gamecenter and Facebook integration to race in the higher score battle among friends
* Multiplier system for higher score
* The craved x2 button to speed things up
* The game is free
33rd Division 1.0.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Feel free to contact the developer for additional information.
