6 Million Downloads and Counting: the Colorful Shock and Awe of Tactile Wars

– More updates mean more fun, as the finger-fired paintballs just keep flying –

Pop quiz: where can you see 2.7 billion paintballs explode in a rainbow of color every single week? Yes folks, you guessed it: Tactile Wars!

The sophisticated French transmedia virtuosos at Ankama got a real kick this week with the news that App Store Editor’s Choice title Tactile Wars has blasted through the 6 million download barrier on iOS and Android. Originally released in August 2015, the title has become an unstoppable juggernaut of finger-friendly micro-military chromatic combat.

And the updates just keep coming. Today’s delivers a new booster system with free random daily booster, new color changing item to flip your hue of choice, mercenary rental feature for a pro-soldier battle boost, and more. Plus, the recently added Color War mode really upped the saturation stakes. Players all over the world are duking it out for domination and ploughing their way through billions of paintballs in the process (2.7 billion per week if you’re counting).
