Retro-style game developer GlitchSoft, known for titles such as the award-winning Destructopus™ and the classic Bar Star™ is at it again with Star Marine: Infinite Ammo. Designed for the iOS devices, the retro run ‘n’ gunner is currently in the final stages of its development. Official launch details for Star Marine: Infinite Ammo will be announced in early January, but here’s a sneak peak.
Star Marine: Infinite Ammo can be defined as the definitive Run n’ Gun experience. Set in the distant future and in the darkest corner of the universe, a tyrant race captures and oppresses all living creatures within their realm. One-by-one the race acquires control over all – that is, until they cross paths with one man. He goes by the name of Arc, and he is a battle hardened drifter with no set course. Untamable, unforgiving, and unstoppable, he will bring apocalypse to the evil race in a fiery charge rampant with bullets and explosions.
Star Marine: Infinite Ammo is a side-scroller that is inspired by, and features comparable gameplay, to popular titles like Contra, Rapid Reload, and Metal Slug. The game is completely original and designed from the ground up for iOS, and features a familiar dual stick control schematic with a single button to activate Arc’s propulsion pack. The controls are extremely responsive and allow Arc to run, dash, jump, hover, hang, climb, and prone while delivering a continuous rain of bullets upon his enemies!
As a studio, GlitchSoft has always aimed to develop games that push the boundaries of mobile gaming and fill the commonly overlooked micro niches of the App Store. Bar Star™ was the first casual time management game to feature dual protagonists, and a scrolling playable area for more drink serving mayhem. Similarly, Destructopus™ features a screen spanning gigantic monster and allows players to rampage on behalf the planet. In keeping with the studio’s tradition, Star Marine: Infinite Ammo will take iOS gaming to a whole new level.
