Get Ready for Intense Dogfights and Epic Bosses!
Pill Bug Interactive is happy to announce that Cycle 28, the addictive 2D momentum-based shooter is making its way onto the Nintendo Switch on August 2nd, 2018! With upgrades, screen-shaking explosions (every one felt through HD rumble) and a mystery at its heart. The “just one more try” nature of the game is perfect for Nintendo Switch players on the go and at home. You play as Olivia Bergen – a flight lieutenant that has become separated from her fleet – you only know Cycle 27. You live it over, and over, and over again. And if that wasn’t bad enough, every time you drop from warp they are waiting for you.
You don’t know who they are or what they want. You just know you’re the only thing between them and home. So you get better, faster, stronger. Maybe one of these Cycle’s you’ll figure it out. Until then, you can only keep dying. Additionally, some of the key features of the game include:
- Kaleidoscopic space combat : Power slide your way between more bullets than any lesser pilot could handle. Nothing feels better than using your ship’s gun to propel you through enemy-infested space as you grip the trigger ever tighter.
- Upgrades: Beat your personal high score in a run to unlock upgrades. With 121 possible configurations, customise your ship and master new tactics to live just a little longer.
- Evolving Story: Uncover the secrets of why you’re stuck in Cycle, why they’re hell-bent on destroying everything you love, and just who they really are.
- Epic Original Score: A powerfully atmospheric mix of modern orchestral and retro electronic sounds by Jordan Rees (Blade Runner 2049 IMAX Countdown, Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC Trailer, The Defenders TV Trailer).
If you are interested in checking out Cycle 28 when it launches, you will be able to find it on the Nintendo eShop for $6.99.
