TriplePoint client Republic of Fun added to its lineup of iPhone games today with the release of Slug Wars, a real-time-strategy game that exposes the epic battles waged by armies of slugs as they duke it out in your front yard.
Republic of Fun president Mike Rasmussen says that the gameplay in Slug Wars makes a nod to established genre favorite Worms, while adding in new gameplay elements in response to input given by the company’s fans.
Your goals in the game are simple – defend your base or capture the base of your enemy. The game offers players control over eight different varieties of slugs in both single player Campaign and Skirmish modes, and allows two players to go head to head, or finger to finger, as is the case with the iPhone, in “Slug-It-Out” mode.
If you want to try the game for yourself (it’s only $1.99), head over to
