A fast-paced, arena-shooter all about that high score.
Yong, the one man developer from Singapore and creator behind his new title Gunkid 99, has today announced that it available now on Itch.io for First Access. Gunkid 99 is a fast-paced, 2D arena-shooter that is all about getting that high score. Inspired by the likes of Super Crate Box , the goal of the game is to earn as high a score you can by collecting weapon drops through a run. Which in turn also changes your weapons in the process. There is also a variety of loadouts you can equip with special items and weapons which can lead to unique strategies and even more customized play-styles.
Despite still being a work-in progress, some of the key features the game includes are:
- Tight and fluid movement. Double-jump, wall-kick and dodge-roll out of harm’s way.
- More than 50 weapons and items. Mix and match them for the ultimate combo.
- More than 20 hand-crafted stages, each with a different layout and enemies combination that requires different strategies to deal with.
With Gunkid 99 being a solo effort by Yong, this is his first serious attempt at making a game since he first picked up GameMaker studio during a sale more than two years ago. If you are interested at all however, be sure to head over to the Gunkid 99 Itch.io page where you can find the game for 10% off at $4.49. It is also available on its Steam page if you want to add it to your wish list. A free demo is also available for both platforms.
