Doodle Hex, Tragnarion Studio’s Magical Game announced for the Nintendo DS

Doodle Hex Screenshot of Strat Tragnarion Studios, a prominent game developer has announced their latest Nintendo DS-exclusive game title called “Doodle Hex”.

Doodle Hex has been created from scratch by Tragnarion Studios especially for the Nintendo DS. The game has a very magical feel to it and also uses unique features like the DS’ touch screen and dual screens.

About the Doodle Hex game:

Doodle Hex is a game of magical dueling where aspiring “Doodlers” compete head-to-head for fun and glory. Two “Doodlers” fight by drawing runes onto the DS touch screen, in real time, to create powerful and fun spells to inflict on their opponent, such as blasts of fire or curses that shake the opponent’s screens, turn their own spells back on them and even turn them into a frog!

Speed of thought, tactical choices and accurate drawing of simple shapes are all important to progress through the game and succeed in Doodle Hex.

Completing tournaments and challenges in the puzzle mode of the game unlocks further runes and spells, allowing players to collect runes to create their own customised spell book. With over 200 runes to collect and swap with friends over wi-fi, Doodle Hex offers over 100 hours of gameplay to budding magicians.

Doodle Hex offers both single player as well as multiplayer modes. The game also features extremely beautiful comic artwork of some rather ‘cool’ looking characters including Strat, an Emo Rockstar Elf and Fey, a Goth Witch.

According to Carl Jones, head of Tragnarion Studios, “Like classic fighting and puzzle games, Doodle Hex offers a rewarding single player experience and the fun increases massively when dueling against other people. We’re delighted with how Doodle Hex is coming together – the game looks fantastic on the DS, is really addictive and the work our team have done on the characters and art style is amazing.”

“We’re showing some examples of this work on our teaser site doodlehex.com, where you can see the doodlers Cassie, Strat, Fey and Kaleb, for now, but we’ll be putting a lot more content up there after we take Doodle Hex to the Leipzig Game Convention,” he added.

Doodle Hex will release in the Q1 2008 and will be available exclusively for the Nintendo DS portable game system.
