Video game publisher Atari today released a remake of the classic Atari 2600 game Warlords onto Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points. The game had previously been released onto PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3.
A multiplayer, arcade-action game, Warlords pits players against up to three opponents, human or computer-controlled, in a struggle to defend their castle walls and eliminate rivals to be the last warlord standing. Players use a magic shield to block fireballs shot at their walls, aiming to deflect the fiery missiles at their enemies' strongholds. Players will need quick reflexes to defend themselves.
Warlords also challenges gamers' strategic skills, as they command groups of minions that battle against other troops to attack enemy walls or capture control points and power-ups.
