Daniel Lutz a.k.a. Gridpop has announced the upcoming game Isle of Arrows, his tower defence-slash-board game with roguelike elements on mobile. Coming to iOS, Android and Steam this summer, the unique title tasks players with placing random tiles as their defences on a piece of land that keeps growing.

Solo indie dev Daniel Luts previously worked as a Creative Director with Square Enix Montreal, with Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO under his belt. Isle of Arrows features randomly generated tiles, foes, events and rewards, with different game modifiers and modes to keep things interesting. Each playthrough is unique with tons of replayability as well.

Players will have to unleash their inner tactician as they construct their impenetrable fortress one tile at a time. They can construct buildings and build roads to protect themselves against waves of enemies, with different challenges that spice up each new run.
