Darium-Update-KeyArt
The recent update of Battle Command! has been quite a significant one, adding a new way of working together and sharing resources through a player-driven economy. The update adds a new resource in the form of Darium, which can be used to produce specialized troops and weapons. The unique part of this is that you can only gain the resource by working together and sharing other resources with your alliance mates. It’s a new twist on a familiar format and has the potential to change a lot within the F2P empire building landscape.

Because of that, we took the time to talk to Lead Producer for the game, Greg Mueller, to learn more about how such a significant inclusion came to be.

Darium-Laser-Screen-PvP-4
148Apps: How did you come up with the new resource sharing system? What was the thinking behind it?
Greg Mueller (GM): Players in Battle Command! are very engaged with their Alliances. We have a boosting mechanic where players can send free production boosts and building speed-ups to their Alliance mates. This is a very popular feature in our game with close to 1 million boosts sent per day. We know players enjoy interacting with their Alliances, so we designed this new system to add even more depth and interaction to the Alliance play. We also wanted to give players a way to uniquely contribute to their friends in the game so we added the three resource types that can be shared. This way you might have Diamonds and I have Amber and we both benefit by sharing those with one another.

Darium-Screenshot-PvE-1
148Apps: In what way do you expect it to change how players interact with each other and play the game?
GM: This update will definitely add even more emphasis to being in an active Alliance. Players will be sharing more, chatting more, and helping out their friends in a variety of meaningful ways. It takes the social aspect of the game beyond simply chatting or donating troops. With this new Darium resource players will also be able to build six new offensive and defensive weapons, each of which adds a new layer of strategy to the game.

Darium-Screenshot-PvP-5
148Apps: How balanced is it? Will players now be pretty much expected to be part of an alliance in order to be successful?
GM: The vast majority of our mid- to high-level players are already in Alliances, so most players won’t have to change the way they play at all to enjoy this new system. We’ve spent a lot of time play testing this both internally and in public beta to make sure we keep the game balanced for players who choose not to join an Alliance.

Darium-Pulsar-Screen-PvP-3
148Apps: How will the story-arc be affected by this new resource and gathering method?
GM: The Darium update comes with its own original story. The update introduces a new class of units and defensive structures that all look, feel, and act very unique. We had a lot of fun with the story and artwork to make these new units feel powerful and mysterious and fun to use.


Thanks to Greg for taking the time to answer our questions.

Goodbye Paywall – Table Tennis Touch Eliminates In-App Purchases

Posted by on August 20th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

In an interesting move, Yakuto has updated their fun ping-pong game, Table Tennis Touch, by eliminating their previous in-app purchases. If you have already purchased an arcade key they will still work, but now all of the boosts are free. You can earn boosts in career mode, and in the quick game mode boosts are now infinite.

According to James Gratton, programmer for Yakuto, “Table Tennis Touch is a challenging game. If you can’t beat an opponent you could say you need more practice, or you could blame the game for being too difficult. But if the idiot developers allow you to buy an elixir that suddenly enables you to vanquish your foe, you cry paywall! And that’s a reasonable conclusion… This is a big, bold step for us. We really hope it’s received in the way it’s intended: to remedy our past mistake and to make Table Tennis Touch an unarguably premium product with zero paywalls, be they real or perceived.”

Table Tennis Touch now also includes 10 new achievements, improved messages and visuals, and a few bug fixes.

You can pick up Table Tennis Touch for $3.99 on the App Store.

The Darium update is coming to Battle Command, by Spacetime Studios. What was once a fun military strategy game will now evolve to include a whole new resource-sharing system, an entirely new tier of troops, new buildings, new attacks, and more.

The update brings players a new storyline as a meteor crashes all too closely to their base. Contained inside the smoldering rock is Darium: a new resource that players share across their alliance. You will be able to build new troops and tech with it, but in order to make the most of your resources you must share them with your friends. The more you share the more you will be able to build. The sharing structure brings an interesting angle to this type of social gaming that we haven’t seen the likes of before.

You can download Battle Command for free on the App Store, and keep an eye out for the Darium update.

New Resource Sharing System – Players work with allies and share resources to create a new alien material known as Darium.

New Troops – The Darium Grenadier, Darium General, and Flying Armada Airplane are a new tier of destructive force to be reckoned with.

New Buildings – The Darium Research Lab, Resource Mining Facilities, Storage Buildings, and more, let players expand their base and provides greater base layout customization.
