Mobile social games developer Ngmoco and KIXEYE, which offers competitive online combat strategy games, have announced details of their partnership to bring Backyard Monsters, a real-time strategy (RTS) game on Facebook, to mobile devices worldwide via the Mobage social gaming platform.
Backyard Monsters is scheduled to launch this summer for all iOS and select Android devices.
“We’re committed to building the best portfolio of games for our social entertainment network, Mobage,” said Neil Young, CEO, Ngmoco.
“We’re confident mobile users will enjoy spilling blood in Backyard Monsters just as much as they do on Facebook,” said Brandon Barber, SVP of Marketing at KIXEYE.
In Backyard Monsters, players are tasked to build and manage the ultimate empire, harvest valuable resources, strategically place Defensive Towers to keep Wild Monster attacks at bay, as well as explore and conquer unlimited Outposts on the World Map.
Players will also have the opportunity to grow and unleash over 15 varieties of vicious monsters to raid other neighboring bases, along with the ability to find and invite friends to battle through Facebook Connect.
