Neuroshima Hex v3.0 and HD update for Android

It’s been nearly five years since we first released Neuroshima Hex and the game’s look did not really change that much over time, so we decided to do something about it.

OK, to be completely honest with you, it wasn’t a truly autonomous decision, but partly the Portal’s license¬†requirements (they’re moving to the new v3.0 look with the “paper” edition), but anyway we tried to did our best and are quite happy with the results.

What did change? Currently only the tile and board graphics, but we’re not going to stop there! We’re working (among other features and bug fixes) on an even more consistent and immersive look – we’re probably going to tease tiny bits of it over the next weeks, so stay tuned.

Another important thing to mention is an HD update for Android version owners – now the ones with tablets can play in HD (similar to Humble Bundle’s version) with iPad like UI! The update comes as an IAP and it totally optional.

Stayed in Mississippi a day too long

If you haven’t figured that out already, this is not one of these websites which get updated on a daily basis. To be honest, if you dig deeper you’ll see this is the first post I’m writing this year (!), so I guess I better keep it short, to ease the shock ūüôā

Here it is, the news of the year – Neuroshima Hex gets updated again, this time with a new army called Mississippi. If you’ve never heard of it, here’s a short description unveiling it’s nastiness:

In 2050 Mississippi is a gigantic toxic sewer draining directly from the interior of Moloch territory. The river and the lands in its vicinity are hidden in poisonous fumes and is known as the Belt of Death or seedbed of mutants. Only a few can survive here and for those rare individuals who live here, the deadly toxins in the air and water are every-day reality. When facing the Warriors of the Mississippi, clad in coats and gas masks, be prepared for the deadliest diseases and poisons born by the post-war world and which Moloch released into the rivers.

Mississippi makes a massive usage of poison which is their main ability – it has fast Poisoner units, Boiler module which lets other units spit poison and, if you play it right, you can even pull off a combo that will add a new poison marker to any unit on the board (including opponent’s HQ) each time a battle is started! And why is poison all that great, you ask? It’s because your opponent’s HQ, once poisoned, can’t do much else except losing hit points each time a battle is started. Put a couple of poison markers on it on the first battle and they’ll get you about 8-10 additional damage point until the end of the game!

So if that and a “gigantic toxic sewer” made you think “I’d buy that for a dollar!” I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is all you have to do to buy it is update your Neuroshima Hex to v.2.5.0, launch it and tap the Yellow Banner‚ĄĘ. The bad news is it costs two dollars.

Oh, and all our other games and IAPs are now discounted, so if you feel like you don’t own enough awesome games already, make yourself a favor, save some money and get them now!

DDM, Sharrash and Dancer available!

Update: The Outpost is currently broken. Please don’t use it until the next update (which is going to be sent today).
Also if you’re using an older device with iOS5, you may have experienced IAPs problems. These will also be fixed with the update.
We’re really sorry for this.

It’s been a while since the last post (7 months, if I did the math right), but hopefully it was also well worth the wait.

Why is that? Because we’re releasing another three new armies for Neuroshima Hex, together for iOS and Android. Many of you probably know what these armies are, but for those who don’t:

  • Doomsday Machine is basically Moloch on steroids. It shoots a lot, can rotate one unit per turn and has new unique units which can redirect or multiply friendly shoots.
  • Sharrash is an army of (teenage) mutant (ninja) rats, so they have the units to respond to almost every situation on the board. High initiative unit attacking your HQ? Use Explosives. Blocked line of fire? Mortar is the right thing to use. Don’t want to lose you powerful melee unit when attacking enemy HQ? Paralysis will do the trick.
  • Dancer is an army anything like the others. It has only three, very powerful, tiles, which act like units and HQs. It also can do it’s special Dance move and completely change the situation on the board.

And justto make this day even more special, we’re putting all armies and NSHex itself on sale! Here’s how the prices will look until the end of the week:

  • Neuroshima Hex¬†for iOS $2.99 (normally $4.99)
  • Neuroshima Hex¬†for Android $0.99 (normally $2.99)
  • new DoomsdayMachine army¬†$0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • new Sharrash army¬†$0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • new Dancer army¬†$0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • The Bundle of Five Armies $3.99 (normally $7.99)
  • Vegas army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • Smart army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • Steel Police army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • New York army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • Neojungle army $0.99 (normally $1.99)

Enjoy!

Neuroshima Hex for Kindle Fire available

Good news, everyone! Neuroshima Hex for Kindle Fire tablets is now available! Follow this link to access it directly on the Amazon App Store.

The biggest difference between this and Google Play edition is the UI. Here the UI is optimized for tablets, so everything is more iPad-like – one image is worth a thousand words and I inlcuded 3 of those in this post, so probably¬†it would be best if you just click one and see for yourself. This edition also includes 5 additional armies (as IAPs/DLCs, whatever you call them), so once you’re tired with the basic ones, feel free to grab another.
