Doodle Hex scribbles onto DS

Magically themed strategy game from Tragnarion Studios noted for Nintendo's portable in early 2008.

by

Last month, Tragnarion Studios unveiled its first game, The Scourge Project. Powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, the ambitious, story-driven first-person shooter aims to emphasize team-based gameplay, and will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC sometime in 2008.

While The Scourge Project was the developer's first game to be announced, it might not be the first game on the market from Tragnarion. Today, the Palma de Mallorca, Spain-based studio announced it will be shipping Doodle Hex exclusively for the Nintendo DS in early 2008.

According to today's announcement, Doodle Hex requires players to exercise "speed of thought, tactical choices, and accurate drawing" to succeed. Players will compete in a series of duels by drawing magical runes on the DS's touch screen. The game features more than 200 different runes, with powers ranging from damage spells to counterattacks to polymorphisms. Players can square off in single-player and multiplayer modes that occur in real time, and also trade found runes using the DS's Wi-Fi capabilities.

This one looks kind of cool. I can see the game being potentially frustrating though as the writing recognition on the DS is dubious at best.

Don't care about the DS, but it could be good.

An enhanced Lost magic game maybe?

Certainly an interesting name, no doubt someone will complain about the word doodle being in it.

Stupid gamespot. Is "PALMA DE MALLORCA", not "Palma de Malorca". About the game: Interesting, let's see how this work, but for now sounds ok.

The online play with the game's concept does sounds like it could work.
