RESHOOT R released
Bombs away for RESHOOT R
Modern action for retro platform Amigas
Puergen/ uebersee, 28 May 2019
The development studio spieleschreiber and the publisher APC&TCP today announce the availability of the retro action game RESHOOT R.
After almost three years of development RESHOOT R finally lights up its laser cannons - as you'd expect, for original Amiga hardware. The horizontal scrolling Shoot'em-Up, in the style of classics like "R-Type", throws the player into an exciting space battle. In five elaborately designed themed worlds, fighter pilots fight side-by-side with the courageous space hero Aryn against the attacks of the evil Tars species.
The action remains faithful to arcade traditions to combine elaborate high-end visuals with high-speed, demanding challenges. Fast gameplay, breathless dynamics, and exciting tension peaks, characterise the fight between the heroine and the ballet of attack waves. Extra weapons and power-ups support her in her fight for survival. If your battle is fought successfully, eternal glory awaits you in the automatically saved highscore list. In addition, here is a premiere for Amiga action games: Those pilots can enter their performance on an Internet ranking website and so they can compare their skills against those of other gamers.
RESHOOT R is initially available as three seperate releases:- Download Edition, PURE Edition and SIGNATURE Edition. The PURE Edition includes the game on CD-ROM and a printed manual, the SIGNATURE Edition has the game on CD-ROM, with a printed manual that has the making-of Special and the soundtrack on a separate audio CD. The Audio CD soundtrack is also available separately.
All Amiga products are now available in the online shop of APC&TCP http://www.amigashop.org. Any specialist dealers, who want to offer RESHOOT R direct to their customers, then please contact APC&TCP by email for details.
