DYSTORIA Retro Inspired Cerebral 3D Shooter With A Modern Focus Out Next Week
Today Indie developer, Tri-Coastal Games is delighted to present the release trailer to their Sci-Fi challenge arcade shooter, Dystoria, released on Steam on 21st February, priced at $14.99/£10.99/€14.99.
Dystoria is a 360 degree Axis Shifting Space Shooter with core mechanics to fly at speed in any direction – on the surface geometry of each level, in a true 3D space. The twist is your ship can only shoot ahead, no matter in what direction you’re facing or level you are stationed. Navigate the precise and correct route to apprehend and destroy the enemy and collect precious orbs is made even more challenging whilst understanding the geographic route, plus taking in and understanding many other intriguing game features.
A backdrop story adds to the intrigue and pulls the player into the arcade experience that really encapsulates the ambience of the epic 1980s.
The game features unrelenting and natural progression, starting easy and becoming more complex as you progress, each level varying in size, but each ending with a satisfying climax, adds to the challenge and focus of Dystoria.
Dystoria features moving platforms, switches for doors, triggers that change level geometry, deadly moving lasers to avoid, destructible blocks to blow up (often revealing hidden areas of valuable pickups) and much, much more.
” Due to the nature of the game’s 3D navigation, Dystoria brings on the exhilarating feeling of vertigo, thusly becoming mind-bending. Some players will take a while to get used to how to do this. Your mind needs to think in a unusual way, but it becomes easier the more you do it, which is a very rewarding experience.”
Dystoria, not only includes a wealth of enemies, both stationary and moving, great vector presentation, supplemented with some cool art, slick controls including gamepad. Its pick-up and play ethos will allow for instant and challenging gameplay. The music is inspired by 80s Arcade games that had a persistent soundtrack during gameplay and adds to a full and wholesome journey into deep space.
