New Droidarena Available at Skotos
By: Robert F. Ludwick | Other | Game Data | 6:33pm, August 8, 2003
BERKELEY, CA, August 8, 2003 -- Droidarena 2, the popular online strategy game, is now available for play as part of the Skotos Online Gaming Channel. It is the tenth game that has joined the Skotos community of online games.

In the future world of Droidarena, the pent-up aggressions of an entire people are spent upon the newest sanitized blood sport: robot fighting. Fifteen different droids--including Behemoths, Cyberspiders, Dragonflys, and Walkers--combat under the control of highly skilled Deckers; it is the newest opiate of the masses. The fates of entire cities depend upon the results of arena combat--and in the shadows ancient corporations are once again rising ...

The players of Droidarena take on the roles of the Deckers in this strategic game of mechanized combat. They will spy upon their enemies, build up their bases, construct their own robots, and eventually determine their arena strategies. Through RSL--a simple, event-driven robot-scripting language--Deckers can program their creations with a variety of aggressive or subtle behaviors. It is only through careful construction and programming that Deckers can achieve victory at the international level.

Like most sports, Droidarena runs in seasons. The newest season of Droidarena began play on August 4, coinciding with its release at Skotos, and will last for two months.

The Skotos Online Gaming Channel offers access to a variety of games for one monthly subscription price. Droidarena marks Skotos' tenth game offering and its fifth strategy game. Other strategy games available at Skotos include: Galactic Emperor: Hegemony, a science-fiction game of space conquest; Space Federation, a science-fiction game of planetary colonization and exploitation; and Gang of Four and Queen's Necklace, two tabletop strategy games.

Interested players may sign up for a free trial account at http://www.skotos.net
