Star Hammer for iPad and iPad Pro (Slitherine) - Strategy

Hi guys,

we''re very exited to let you know about Star Hammer. It will be releasing Thursday and is going to be a completely new type of game for your tablet. There is simply nothing else like it!

Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy is a game of 3D tactical space battles. Play your part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions, or create your own scenarios in skirmish mode battles.



Give your orders, and watch the results in explosive pausable real-time. Tailor your arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships as your fleet grows with your command. Exploit the enemy’s weaknesses with superior positioning and flanking manoeuvres to inflict devastating damage.

Six classes of assaults ships are yours to command. Make precision strikes with the swift Swordfish Raiders, or lead from the bridge of a hulking Kraken Dreadnought. Change your tactics as you order reinforcements with stun guns, guided missiles, unmanned fighter drones and single-focus DEW beams.

I really like the organic-looking ships. Any plans for an expansion where you can play as that faction?
