    Heavy Recoil - Wide Pixel Games

    Saw Heavy Recoil in the Sandbox today. Checking it out. I can't aim up or down. Think that's by design though. Think the demo should be a bit longer. Probably going to kick down the 99 cent's though just to support the publishers effort.

    I have told Mikael Tillander (The dev) to come register here to showcase the game. So hopefully he should do that shortly.

    Can't really complain about the demo length. It showcases the old-skool brutal difficulty of such shooters and is enough to wet the appetite. Plus for .99c, you can't go wrong. Especially when I consider this game better than Gunslugs.

    Anyway, whilst we wait for a more official thread. This is the text within the OUYA store:

    Heavy Recoil - Convoy Chaser takes the run 'n' gun genre back to the coin-op golden age of the 1980's, when you hadn't really beaten a game unless you'd done it on a single credit.

    Lead your auto-cannon wielding robot deep behind enemy lines and smash tanks, gunships and fearsome bosses with your awesome arsenal of deadly weaponry! Rescue prisoners of war and blast everything in your path like a REAL hero!

    * No Nonsense! No Continues!
    * Horizontal Firing Only!
    * Abilities and Upgrades!
    * Secondary Weapons!
    * Good/Bad Endings!

    Hi there!

    Story behind the game coming to Ouya is here: http://www.rgcd.co.uk/2013/07/heavy-...available.html

    And yes, two way firing only IS intentional. It's like a 23rd century homage to the coin-op classic Rush 'n' Attack/Green Beret.

    Official game blurb follows:

    Heavy Recoil - Convoy Chaser takes the run 'n' gun genre back to the coin-op golden age of the 1980's, when you hadn't really beaten a game unless you'd done it on a single credit.

    Lead your auto-cannon wielding robot deep behind enemy lines and smash tanks, gunships and fearsome bosses with your awesome arsenal of deadly weaponry! Rescue prisoners of war and blast everything in your path like a REAL hero!

    * Secondary Weapons!
    * Good/Bad Endings!

    ^^ And there we go. This is actually one of several games the developer is working on for OUYA... so if you like this one, keep an eye out for more retro inspired goodness in the future

    Thanks Saracen - just noticed you beat me to the blurb post by a few seconds

    And yes, if this one does well, Mikael is toying with the idea of releasing future games exclusively on Ouya (or at least initially exclusively).

    I'm glad to see people having such rich taste in video game genres these days. All we get is Call of Duty and God of War and it's not short of stale. Bringing back both a awesome genre and untamed "fun" back into the gamers' experience is worth a medal in my opinion. I will get this game from the store as soon as I can, but for right now I'm busy with things and that makes me extremely depressed when this is just so close to being in my possession. Argh!
