MoneyPaw Games: Retro Import Hyper Crazy Climber Out Next Week

50°
5d ago - MoneyPaw Games PR Manager Ryan Olsen announced today that retro import Hyper Crazy Climber is out on PSN next week with details below.

To quote: MonkeyPaw Games has another import retro title ready. You better have a good grip because you'll be climbing your way to the stratosphere. Our newest game is Hyper Crazy Climber, a series that has roots all the way back to the start of arcades.

Hyper Crazy Climber is a sequel to Crazy Climber. As you likely guessed, with Hyper Crazy Climber the challenges are more hyper, crazier, and climb...ier.

The goal for each level is to start at the bottom of a tower and navigate the level while avoiding obstacles to reach the top. It might not sound too difficult, but that isn't the case at all.

The controls were designed to be difficult to master, and you'll need to operate the left and right side of your character independently to reach the summits.

It'll take expert hand-eye coordination to gracefully climb your way to the peak of beanstalks, clock towers, and other tall structures.

Hyper Crazy Climber originally launched in Japan in 1996 for the PSone. It's a continuation of the arcade games, and the first time a new entry in the Crazy Climber series found a home on consoles.

Here are some gaming...

Gameplay seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning with fast-paced action and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you'll piece together the Transistor's mysteries as you pursue its former owners.

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We'll have a near-final build of the game running on PS4, which you'll be able to get your hands on at our booth (#892). It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

Video: There Came an Echo: Voice-controlled Strategy on PS4

5d ago - Iridium Studios Lead Designer Jason Wishnov shared a video today spotlighting There Came an Echo, a voice-controlled strategy game on PS4.

To quote: Hey, PlayStation fans! Quick backstory: we were making this game, and market research showed us that people who own PS4s like games.

After extensive trend analysis and writing numbers down on paper in the hopes of making it look like we knew basic mathematics, we made the executive decision to bring our title, There Came an Echo, over to the Sony side of town. There's a trailer above, which you should probably watch, but if you didn't, it's okay, we're cool.

There Came an Echo is, if you'll pardon the torrent of hyphens, a voice-controlled squad-based real-time strategy game. You don't play directly as the soldiers in the field, but rather as the tactical commander, issuing strategic orders via headset.

Ever felt annoyed when someone in your earpiece told you what to do in a blockbuster, AAA first-person shooter? Well, now, you're the someone in the earpiece. Some direct influences on the game include X-COM: Enemy Unknown and Tom Clancy's EndWar.





A lot of you might feel a little antsy about voice recognition. And we understand! But we'd...
