Espoo, Finland -- September 17 2014 -- Today Plunder Pirates launches across the App Store worldwide. This new title from Midoki, and published by Rovio Stars, is set to raise the benchmark of mobile gaming. Apple continues to blur the lines between mobile and console gaming. Metal technology in iOS 8 allows Rovio Stars and Midoki to deliver a new level of graphics performance and encourage a new class of games, such as Plunder Pirates.
Plunder Pirates is a genre-defining game which takes combat strategy to the next level. The game, which has full Metal graphics support in iOS 8, uses dynamic PlunderCam™ technology that allows players to zoom, swivel and manipulate the game camera within a fully rendered 3D environment. Small details and character animations can be examined in close-up, cinematic cuts at literally any point in the game.

And thanks to Rovio we are able to reach a far wider audience than we could have ever imagined.” said Chris Gage, Co-Founder of Midoki.
