Playlore brings post-apocalyptic warfare to iOS with Downfall: Clash of Factions

Playlore today launched its first iOS game, Downfall: Clash of Factions.

The title is a midcore strategy game, with players helping rebuild humanity after the world’s been devastated by nuclear war. Users build up a city, manage resources and establish an army while carving out a part of the wasteland to call their own. Players can also either join Factions or establish their own that others can join.

This is the second full game from Playlore, which previously created Soccer Town on Facebook and Football Nation on Orkut and Facebook. Before that, the developer contributed to AAA games like Sony Online Entertainment’s DC Universe Online and Über Entertainment’s popular shooter Monday Night Combat.

We’ve spent a little time playing the Downfall on the iPad and the overall feel of the game seems reminiscent of Kabam’s popular Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North. However while multiplayer components and online chat are already available, social sharing via services like Facebook, Twitter and Game Center aren’t currently enabled, though Playlore tells us they’re coming soon.

When it comes to emulating success, Kabam’s mid-core titles are certainly the brass ring to aim for. When we talked to Kabam VP and Head of Corporate Communications Steve Swasey earlier this week about his company’s acquisition of Exploding Barrel Games, he noted that Kingdoms of Camelot is a $100 million-a-year franchise on its own.
