Dawn Patrol Games is seeking journalists for reviews of the studio’s latest release, Nitropia: War Commanders:
Hello, my name is Silje, and I’m a Norwegian who works as the art director of an indie game developer based in Sri Lanka called Dawn Patrol Games.
We have just launched our latest game called Nitropia: War Commanders, available now for iPad on the Apple App Store. Nitropia for Android devices, along with an iPhone version, will follow within the next 1-2 weeks.
If you are a journalist and would like to test out the game (and perhaps give us a review), please get in touch with me and I can provide an unlocked version to download.
Check out the Nitropia: War Commanders launch trailer:

With Nitropia, we’re expanding the tower defence genre by adding in real time strategy elements, without the need for tedious micro-management. For example:
• Resource collection (“Nitrus”)
• Playing offense in addition to defense
• Factories produce free roaming units you may deploy anywhere on the map
• Enemies actively try to take down your defenses and each level adds at least one new challenge to deal with
We also have a rich background story and interesting characters whose stories the player can follow RPG-style in between the levels. In addition, we’ve added two extra game modes; “Survival Mode”, with a time limit, against the enemy boss characters and “Base Battle Mode”, where your goal is to destroy the enemy bases at the same time that they are trying to destroy yours. Pretty intense stuff!
Nitropia is free to download, including the six first characters (3 commanding officers and 3 rigs) and three levels to test out – after that the rest of the game can be purchased for US$1.99.
There is also extra content available a la carte style: Six extra characters, resources that you can use to upgrade your defense and “combo” packs. We also award a ton of in-game currency for playing well; so you can spend it on new characters, attack upgrades and advanced towers as you go.
Nitropia: War Commanders has a total of 21 levels, 12 unique hero characters with special field effects that you can mix and match to fit your play-style, and 6 different towers with their own powerful special attachments to upgrade. We’re currently planning two content updates that will include 8 new hero characters, new missions and new enemies – and last but not least, more story..!
We’ve picked up a few accolades already; we were showcased both at Casual Connect Asia and Casual Connect USA in San Francisco this year.
I hope you like our game!
