Ares Scenario Editor Released

Ambrosia Software has updated their classic space game, Ares, to version 1.2.0. In addition to updating the game, Ambrosia has also announced that the new version comes with their full-featured scenario editor, Hera. According to Ambrosia:

Ambrosia Software, Inc. announced today the release version 1.2.0 of Ares, the tactical Inter-networkable space battle game that gives new meaning to the word "shrapnel."

Ares 1.2.0 now includes Hera, a full-fledged scenario editor for Ares! Now you can modify Aresi built in scenarios, play scenarios made by other Ares fans, or even create your own custom scenarios for Ares! The universe is limited only by your imagination! Oh, and did we mention that this upgrade (as well as the Hera) is entirely FREE for registered users of Ares?

Ares is an exciting blend of action and strategy in uncharted space. Use your ships to control and protect planets, increase your manufacturing capacity, and fuel your war machine. A shrewd pilot with limited resources can decisively outwit a stronger opponent, so planning and execution are critical.

Strategy outmatches guns any day in this game. Ares developer, Nathan Lamont, has crafted an exciting universe with 20 strategic missions for a single player to accomplish. But the fun doesnt stop there! Two players can go head-to-head via AppleTalk or the Internet.

Ares is available for US$25. You can find more information at the Ambrosia Software Web site.
