BOSTON – Nov. 7, 2012 – Fans of arcade shooters, rejoice! Intense, top-down multiplayer shooter ErnCon: Multiplayer Combat is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Developed by Woo Games, ErnCon was built from the ground up for multiplayer gameplay. Starting with a detailed tutorial, players are introduced to the game’s workhorses, Fighters and Robots, and the high-powered weapons required in order to lay waste to their opponents—including Homing Missiles, Seeking Mines, Rail Guns, and Attack Drones. Once the stage has been set, it’s time to jump into battle with seven other players – fighting for loot, dodging asteroids, and strafing huge space stations sporting the latest weaponry.
ErnCon is a universal app compatible with the iPad, iPhone 3GS and above—and it can be played over Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G networks.

If you like multiplayer games–and blasting things in deep space–this is the game for you ”
