10w ago - TACSgames developer Thomas Hopper explained to fans today that Shuttle Quest 2000 is essentially R-Type meets Monster Hunter on PlayStation Mobile.
To quote: Over the last year, I have been working hard to bring fun games to PlayStation Mobile. I have created many titles to fit the many tastes of mobile gamers. My most recent game, Shuttle Quest 2000, is sort of a cross between and R-Type and Monster Hunter.
Become humanity's best shuttle pilot as you confront the evil alien forces of General Xarod. You'll meet many characters on your adventure, including humans, aliens, a pirate robot shop keeper and a very grumpy door.
To make your shuttle more combat-effective, you'll embark on quests, which will give you more resources and money to buy or craft new weapons, items, and drones. Defeating enemy megaships will alert your adversaries and make your job harder, but by conquering them, you will unlock more resources and weapons.
There are tons of different combinations of weapons and drones that you can use to make your shuttle a unique fighting machine.
I'm passionate about classic gaming, so I've done my best to make the game as authentic as possible with retro-accurate graphics, visual effects, chip tune music and sound effects. I wanted to make the space station feel like a classic top down RPG and the shooter sections resemble my favorite side-scrolling shooters of the past.
The first chapter of Shuttle Quest 2000 is free to download, and this week there is a price cut on the full game unlock to $2.29. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback in the comments section and you can reach me on Twitter (@thos_thom).
PS Vita owners can download Thomas Hopper's games from the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store; Owners of PlayStation-certified devices such as the Sony Xperia Z smartphone/tablet or Wikipad can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store for the same price.
