Chillingo's newest iOS game, Platoonz, has just landed on the New Zealand App Store's battlefield. This means it will blast into the UK and US at midnight this evening.
Platoonz is an over-the-top (if you'll pardon the pun) side-scroller that positively encourages rampant destruction. In the game, you use gesture controls to manage up to four platoon members at once as you battle to stave off an extraterrestrial menace.
And on the subject of your platoon members, you are handed complete control over your company of soldiers in Platoonz, meaning you can customise everything from their facial hair to their clothing and weapon loadout.
Platoonz features a "huge" campaign, with its missions set in four unique locations, including Sandy Pants and Winter Wonderland.
Check out the teaser trailer below for a taste of what to expect when this Universal app drops later this evening. It'll be priced 69p / 99c, by the way.
