Orcs and Elves DS – Developer Diary and Screenshots
Originally a cell phone game, Orcs & Elves is a fantasy RPG created by id Software and was voted Mobile Game of the year at AIAS . Now, Electronic Arts is releasing it for the Nintendo DS and it will be hitting stores on November 13th. Developed by Fountainhead Entertainment, Orcs & Elves will be making its Nintendo DS debut with more foes, levels, and weapons.
With a storyline sprawling twelve levels, the game is basically a dungeon-crawling experience set amidst a mountainous Dwarven fortress, the player will explore for ancient treasure, weapons and fight enemies as young half-elf. You will find thirteen mystical weapons including magical swords, deadly crossbows, and a war hammer as you fight through waves of legendary beasts each with their own tactics and powers. Along the way, players will also befriend characters, such as an ancient dragon, to help fight your way into the deepest reaches of the fortress on a quest to expel the evil from the mountain’s core.
Using the DS touch screen to solve puzzles, overcome deadly traps and unleash magical powers with an arsenal of arcane items like magic potions, enchanted rings, dragon scale armor and an enchanted wand; Orcs & Elves sounds like a fun diversion from most of the DS titles released to date.
