Chesterfield, December 14th, 2018 – International Publisher FUNBOX MEDIA LTD today announce that in association with KISS LTD and TIGA award nominated developers, FLUMP STUDIOS, the digital release of HORIZON SHIFT ’81 on the Nintendo eShop, on December 20th
Horizon Shift '81 is an explosive wave based single screen shooter (shmups) with a real Retro feel to it. You can even play the game in Tate / vertical / portrait screen mode.
The player controls a ship in the centre of the screen, enemies approach from the top and bottom and the player is able to switch up and down to deal with the encroaching hoard.
Different enemies react differently when they reach the horizon, some sit on the horizon, some destroy sections of the horizon and some run up and down the horizon. The player is equipped with a dash attack where they can knock enemies off the horizon and smash them into other incoming enemies for a score bonus. Dashing an enemy of the line refills the dash metre allowing for ‘Dash chaining’, this is where the big points are scored.
The player is also able to jump (jumping upside down is an interesting new challenge) and is equipped with a bomb which wipes the screen of enemies as well as restoring the horizon.
Epic has taken a very big step when it comes to stopping Fortnite leaks. The company is now sending out cease-and-desist letters to a number of notable Fortnite dataminers/leakers, claiming that leaking the content "spoils the game for millions of people who play and/or watch Fortnite, and negatively impacts those who work hard to create and update Fortnite." Looks like finding out Fortnite info early might be a lot harder in the coming months!
It’s official! Pandas are now in Minecraft on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 Edition, VR, iOS and Android! It’s the kind of great news that makes us want to celebrate by dancing and singing! Or – better idea – celebrate by supporting an amazing nonprofit, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) – also known as World Wide Fund for Nature outside of the US – that help protect pandas. Yeah, let’s do that instead!
WWF is known for their amazing conservation efforts all over the world. Their work with pandas includes researching and monitoring their habitats (can you imagine the video highlights?!), creating bamboo corridors that help pandas travel to protected areas where they can feed and mate freely, as well as working with communities to help engage them in panda conservation.
This is just a small part of the great work WWF is doing, and we want in! That’s why we’re launching a new campaign in Minecraft. Once our players have collectively placed 10 million bamboo blocks in Minecraft, we’ll donate 100,000 dollars to WWF to help support all their important work!
We’re confident this donation isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Last summer, when we promised to donate 100,000 dollars to The Nature Conservancy if you placed 10 million coral blocks, you managed it in a matter of days! How quickly can you reach the goal this time? We can’t wait to find out and we’ll update our Twitter as soon as you do!.
Before you’re ready to start placing bamboo blocks in Minecraft, perhaps you’d like to look the part? Well, we’re here to help! Today, we’re launching the Paws and Claws Cosplay Pack, letting you look a little more like a sneezing panda, or as swish as a Siamese cat! Give yourself an unfurgettable makeover with 17 cat and panda skins, with 62.5% of the sales going straight to WWF and their amazing work protecting pandas, their habitats and other vulnerable species. Purrrfect!
Just as Nintendo said it would, the Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country Original Soundtrack is now available to purchase. The only option here in the states and in Europe is the digital one. If you're looking to grab that download, snatch it up on iTunes right here.
In Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World players assume the role of young noblewoman, Nelke von Lestamm; tasked with building up the quaint village of Westwald into a prosperous city. For her to develop buildings and extend the size of Westwald, she will need to earn money from the businesses she runs or sell synthesized items for cash.
Your favorite marsupial, Crash Bandicoot™, is back! He's enhanced, entranced and ready-to-dance with the N. Sane Trilogy game collection. Now you can experience Crash Bandicoot like never before. Spin, jump, wump and repeat as you take on the epic challenges and adventures through the three games that started it all, Crash Bandicoot™, Crash Bandicoot™ 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot™ 3: Warped. Relive all your favorite Crash moments in their fully-remastered graphical glory and get ready to put some UMPH in your WUMP!
