Fantastico Studio has recently announced that its roguelike shoot-em-up Black Paradox will be available on July 27 for Steam on Early Access. Black Paradox will also have console versions developed in the future, and a demo for the game is available now.
Fight criminals, bend space, time travel, save the universe! This is BLACK PARADOX! The game is a fast paced rogue-like shoot ’em up game with amazing pixel art and a Synth-Wave soundtrack. Play as Black Paradox, a fierce bounty hunter, and defeat the biggest criminal organization in space, The Hellraisers, and its 7 leaders!
Black Paradox is a mix of old school shoot ‘em up elements and roguelike mechanics. The 7 levels are full of random generated enemy waves and hazards, creating an hardcore and fun experience. Each level will feature its own boss, each with different and unique attack patterns. The more you advance in the game, the more the bosses will start to attack using “bullet hell” like patterns. Also, as you progress through the levels you’ll be able to collect many different weapons and powerups to make each run unique! This is still not enough to complete all the levels of the game, but don’t worry!
The game also features a growth system based on chips for your spaceship, to make it strong enough to finally beat the game! Chips will both upgrade the ship’s base stats and give it special abilities, such as healing over time or the chance to also fire missiles when shooting with your weapon. Obviously, as in any good shoot ’em up the player can also use a special power, the Black Paradox from which he gets his name, which grants him the ability to overlap realities and call another Black Paradox from another dimension to help out.
