- Beatshapers CEO Alexey Menshikov
has announced that the PlayStation Minis game NormalTanks is now available on both PSP and PS3 via PSN.
To quote: I'm Founder and CEO of Beatshapers
, a Ukraine based video games developer and digital download publishing company.
I've started my career 12 years ago as audio designer, worked on many games like Carnivores series, Vivisector, Cryostasis, EA's Black, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and more.
Recently, me and our key team members were responsible for IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Pray for PSP platform, MelodyBloxx (this year IGF Mobile "Honorable mention" awarded), Rhythm of War PSP (IGF Mobile 2009 finalist) and BreakQuest, another PSP minis game which we've developed and published around the PSPgo launch.
So what is all this about? NormalTanks is a really old school fast-paced multi-directional top-down arcade shooter in a sci-fi tank universe.
Reminiscent of games from the 8-bit era, NormalTanks features a better look and feel but still retains a classic alone-saves-the-universe gameplay.
There are 8 challenging, dynamic and hazardous environments to tackle: inside enemy bases, outdoor jungles and mountains, every level has own end levels boos to defeat.
