Pools of Blood feat. Karnivool - Now Out!


Metal band Karnivool teamed up with iPhone game studio Staring Man to release a game called Pools of Blood, which is now available for 99c!

Pools of Blood is a finger-tapping action strategy game on the iPhone, set to the rocking tones of Australian metal band Karnivool's next single, Set Fire to the Hive. Kotaku says it maybe the bloodiest game they have ever reviewed and described the music as "the perfect musical accompaniment to the sight of mashed orc flesh".

Imagine something like Helm's Deep from War of the Ring, if you got to be Godzilla, but with better breath and longer squishing arms. It's a tongue in cheek tower defense game which promises straight-forward bad-guy swatting for people looking to relax, and strategic combo chains for people looking to tackle the high score tables. You also score bonus points the more blood-soaked your screen becomes.

So it's got no upgrades? And you can't place additional towers?

I don't know.
