Revitalising classic hallmarks of beloved sidescrolling platformers of the past, Android Hunter A is a well-oiled machine of fast-paced action, smooth platforming and deadly bosses.
This ambitious project seeks to revisit the nostalgia of classic action-platformers with its own contemporary style.
Vijay Kumar, Lead Developer of Android Hunter A, said: “We grew up playing and loving the Megaman X series, and the big question for us was how could we take the fundamental elements of a Megaman X game, and innovate in a way that doesn’t take anything away from the core experience.”
“We believe the classic sidescrolling shooter formula goes hand in hand with fighting games, so we immediately looked to Tekken and Street Fighter as inspirations to find new ways to bring the retro style into the next generation.”
“In addition to a brand new visual aesthetic, stage ranks and character customizability, Android Hunter A introduces new gameplay mechanics that reward skill based play and revitalizes retro platforming!”
Android Hunter A will be launching onto PC via Steam on November 26th.
