25 MARCH 2010 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Leading independent developer Blitz Games Studios has signed Xbox Live Indie Games smash hit Weapon of Choice, to its Blitz 1UP label. Weapon of Choice is developed by Mommy’s Best Games and will be released on PC. .
Weapon of Choice is a high-energy, side-scrolling action game with an original hi-res hand drawn colour pencil art style. There are a multitude of unique weapons and playable characters to pick from in an exciting gameplay world of wild alien hordes bent on absorbing the entire planet and picturesque environments.
Choice is the player’s Weapon, with dynamically branching levels, masses of replayability and a variety of different endings to the game. Each life that the player uses is unique with his/her own Weapon of Choice and special abilities to learn while following the intriguing story.
WEAPON OF CHOICE:
• Easy to use gameplay for casual gamers and advanced, ability levels for hardcore gamers
• Rescue unique playable characters and add to total number of playable lives
• Experience ‘death brushing’. Unlike traditional one-hit kill games, Weapon of Choice gives players the chance to escape a tight spot
• Reap revenge for downed Operatives with the Vengeance Missile
• Scale walls and attack from anywhere with the automated Spiderpack
• Soak up the myriad layered, meticulous animations that enliven each level
• Rock out to original music with a classic metal guitar soundtrack.
“We're excited to be collaborating with Mommy’s Best Games to bring Weapon of Choice to PC,” says Chris Swan, Blitz 1UP Business Development Director. “It’s a great action title that’s already managed to impress a lot of people and secure quite a following.”
Adds Mommy’s Best Games’ Nathan Fouts: "With the help of Blitz 1UP, we hope to relieve your monitor’s from constantly displaying games in browns and greys—it’s time to vomit up some vibrant colour with trip-inducing visuals of alien viscera!"
