Electronic Arts has announced the release of fantasy role playing game Orcs & Elves.
Developed exclusively for mobile phones by id Software and Fountainhead Entertainment and using the DOOM RPG graphics engine, Orcs & Elves combines first person action/adventure gameplay with the puzzle game genre. Players must explore ancient Dwarven fortresses with the help of a magical talking wand. Weapons from flaming swords to crossbows can be used to beat the over 35 enemies in the game as you disable traps to reach the treasure beyond.
John Carmack of id Software spoke about the game:
“With Orcs & Elves we were able to take what was great about DOOM RPG, and bring tons of new features to the experience in a brand new world. The pace of development in mobile gaming allows us to evolve by leaps and bounds each year, rather than stretched out over four years like a high end PC or console game.”
The game is available now for download across Europe.
