Hamburg, Germany – Casual games publisher LITE Games, headquartered in Hamburg/Germany, has released a big update for the iOS version of the successful app “iMills” today. About five years after the initial launch the update delivers the long anticipated online multiplayer mode as well as numerous other improvements (and a new name: “Mills”).
Mills is a hugely popular game throughout the world, characterized by the fact it is so easy to learn – and it’s even older than chess. Nowadays the game that’s also well known as Nine Men’s Morris, The Mill Game, or Cowboy Checkers is a national pastime in many countries.
With the Apple iOS version of the free mobile game having already recorded over a million downloads, the game takes the next step to improve the game experience even further. The update was already released for Android about a month ago and was very well received with over 100,000 new downloads and an overall rating of 4.3 stars.
Mills features 3 game modes: 2-player online, 1-player offline, 2-player offline. The heart of the new version is certainly the online multiplayer mode, in which players can put their skills to the test in matches against opponents from all over the world. Also new are the international online ranking and comprehensive statistics which enable players to track their own progress.
“We are extremely excited about the new online multiplayer feature”, says Chris Twellmann, Managing Director at LITE Games GmbH. “The ability to play Mills against friends online and to then be able to compete in ranking lists is a feature that a large number of players have been requesting for some time.”
But the game continues to be just as fun offline as well. Apart from the powerful AI with various difficulty levels, there are now also customizable rules for a personalized game experience, as well as numerous achievements to unlock. Naturally, the new version also offers the option of replacing an offline computer opponent with a human player, allowing users to play a round of Mills with friends in real life without needing a game board.
In addition to a graphical overhaul of the game, localization into many new languages has been added. The Mills board game is now available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Turkish, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Chinese, and Japanese.
