Posted: Friday, October 30, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Demo

Try a playable demo of Smugglers IV before exploring the whole galaxy in the full version!

Matrix Games and Niels Bauer Games (www.nielsbauergames.com) are excited to announce the release of a playable demo for Smugglers IV - Doomsday. This demo will give gamers an in depth look at the fun and challenging turn-based space-trading game. In addition, a new batch of screenshots is also available for viewing to mark the release of the demo.

 

The demo is available from our downloads page and these mirrors: Worth Downloading, Patches-Scrolls, Atomic Gamer, and Gamer’s Hell.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The Smugglers IV - Doomsday demo is a blast to play and should give gamers a good introduction to what our updated Matrix Games release has to offer.  The game is so easy to pickup and so hard to put down that any type of gaming fan should give this free demo a try.”

 

Through trading, fulfilling missions, or pirating, you can earn the money and skills necessary to buy new ships and upgrade your equipment. As success brings larger ships, missions, and enemies, you'll have to manage a crew, board & plunder enemy ships, and even conquer star systems. You can move up in rank with the factions you align with and gain special abilities and powers as you become more experienced. Smugglers IV offers addicting open-ended gameplay where the opportunities for victory are virtually limitless – make your choices wisely, however, as your actions will ultimately have an impact on a galactic scale!

Star Hammer Beta!

Wednesday, March 04, 2015

War Was Inevitable

Today we are excited to announce the development of a new 3D tactical space battles game called Star Hammer : The Vanguard Prophecy. Developer Black Lab Games is focused on designing a fascinating sci-fi game in which players will not only step into the shoes of a fleet commander – carefully selecting their spaceships and crew members – but also be at the spearhead of their squadron, maneuvering their capital ships like a hard-boiled captain!

The players will have to face a ferocious alien race - the Nautilid - which threat is as varied as it is innumerable and the game offers plenty of tactical situations in which players will have to take painful decisions. To succeed, players will need to be quick-learners to identify the weaknesses of the enemy and adopt an offensive behavior only when a clear breach appears.

Machines are taking control! Legions of Steel announced!

Monday, March 02, 2015

The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!

“The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world. To repel such a despicable attack, humanity can only rely on an holy and mysterious order of fearless knights, priests, and wizards known as “The Order of Radiance”.

An epic fight between these two fundamentally opposed factions is bound to begin!

Since its PC release last November, HELL has been further polished by developer Hunted Cow, receiving a major update which added brand new game modes.
