2D arena-based platform shooter Gravity Heroes will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on January 22, 2021, publisher PQube and developer Studica Solution announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Step into the arena as a member of the Gravity Heroes, taking on hordes of synthetic enemies as you attempt to restrike the balance between man and machine in a futuristic war torn world. Your ultimate weapon is the ‘Gravity Shifter’, allowing you to manipulate gravity; use your unique abilities to cut down enemies, collect power-ups, new weapons and switch up tactics to change the tide of battle.
With incredible pixel art aesthetic, classic arcade style platform based shooting combined with the innovative Gravity Shifter mechanic, Gravity Heroes is a unique combination of retro titles we loved and modern indies that push the boundaries.
- Control Your Gravity – Take on the robotic hordes on the walls, floors, and ceilings as you shift and control your center of gravity with Gravity Heroes‘ unique ‘gravity shifter’ mechanic. Dodge enemy projectiles, meet enemies head-on landing on walls and ceilings or simply navigate around each stage by shifting your gravity.
- Discover the Reason Behind a Robotic Uprising – Take your place as a member of the “Gravity Heroes” as you investigate the mysterious reason behind a broken peace treaty between humans and robotic-beings called synthetics in Story mode. Play solo or team up with up to three friends as you take on synthetic hordes and colossal bosses.
- Team Up With, or Take On Friends – Get lost in hectic couch-based local multiplayer! Either team up with friends and family and take on the hordes in ‘Survivor mode’ or unleash your competitive side in ‘versus mode’. Pick your character and strap in for hours of fun!
