Vimala: Defense Warlords Shakes Up Tower Defense with Turn-Based RPG Combat, Heroes, and a Weather System


BANDUNG, Indonesia – Dec. 9, 2014 – Vimala: Defense Warlords, a new tower defense game developed by MassHive Media, is now available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Vimala’s anime look, turn-based RPG combat and innovations such as a weather system and Heroes are sure to make an impression on those craving a new take on the tower defense genre.

Inspired by Brigandine, a classic PlayStation-era strategy game, Vimala has players recruit Heroes and other units in order to expand their kingdoms. Resource management (hiring and upgrading units) is key—while combat requires expert use of AP (action points), items (healing potions, buffs), and strategy. Weather plays a role as well: The Weather Clock lets players know if acid rain is about to hit, which means that players must prepare accordingly! Other weather events include snowstorms, volcanic rain, and even miasma.

Vimala is Brigandine for a new generation of gamers,” says Anggia Lestari, founder and CEO of MassHive Media. “Our goal was to revitalize the tower defense genre by introducing RPG-like combat, going for depth—leveling up both Heroes and units, for example—and adding some really fun 6v6 skirmish gameplay every time players need to attack or defend a fortress. Fans of strategy and tower defense games will find a lot to like in Vimala.”
