Solstice Arena, the mobile speed MOBA from Zynga, just added Mac support, allowing players to play cross-platform between iOS and Mac OS.
Zynga, the developer behind Solstice Arena proved that it loves to push boundaries when it released a MOBA game specifically designed for mobile back in June. Deemed a "speed MOBA," Solstice Arena aims to capture MOBA fans who don't have 30-60 minutes to play a game of LoL or DOTA2. Today, the game's development team announced that the game has been officially released on the Mac App Store.
Experience epic battles in the world's first Speed MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). Form alliances and fight together in 3 vs. 3 combat. Hone your skills as you battle alongside friends, taking on players from around the world (PvP mode) or facing challenging bots (co-op or single-player mode).
This move makes Solstice one of very few mobile games to offer cross-platform support on a computer. What's more, the team has revealed their ongoing development of a PC version of the game that will also support cross-platform play. This means you could play the game on your MacBook with a friend on his iPad and another on her iPhone. "Most importantly, the game is balanced no matter what platform your team or the enemy team are playing on," said Communications Manager Bryan Pope in an email.
For those who haven't gotten their hands on the game yet, Solstice Arena is a fresh take on the MOBA genre that focuses on quick, intense matches. Players compete on a 3v3 map and destroy towers on their way to the main objective in the game. Unlike traditional MOBAs, Solstice eliminates creeps/minions by adjusting towers to only attack when its defenders are nearby. Games typically take 7-10 minutes. Like other MOBAs, players have dozens of champs to choose from along with a slew of awesome skins.
The game won Warcry's Best MOBA of E3 award, and is free to download on the App Store and Mac App Store.
