Nova Nukers! stands for straightforward local multiplayer action. You and up to three other players will use a variety of unique weapons, grenades and items to fight for the win. In this arena-shooter you play with different characters on miniature planet-battlefields which get totally destroyed by your actions. To deliver a unique gameplay experience Nova Nukers! comes up with a combat mechanic which turns every fight between two players into an intense duell.
Battling your friends is cool and all but think of how cool it would be if your actions really impacted the environment! We developed a tech which allows you to completely wreck the whole map you are fighting on! The battlegrounds change during the course of a match and provide a different gameplay experience each round!
Your destruction on a planet can assume epic proportions, leaving only shattered debris. This makes the movement much more interesting and dangerous because craters may reveal the deadly core of the planet. Hint: You might want to avoid falling into this core :D!
To further increase the variety in gameplay and give you different ways to approach combat, we came up with many exciting weapons and items. Be it a bomb laying robot chicken, a rapid-fire grenade launcher or a shark firing Sharkzooka - learn to utilize the weapons to their full potential and come out ahead!
Everyone on the planet is trying to catch each other - that's the only way to score points! Utilize the different weapons to break the shield of an opponent. Once the shield is broken he will be stunned. That's where your catch-beam comes in - lock on to your stunned opponent and catch him while he is stunned!
Catching is an intense two person battle: Each player’s dexterity and skill decides who will emerge victorious!
As fighting games go - you will sooner or later be eliminated from the game - be it by some other player or the environment. Having to stay out of the game until the remaining players have settled their score is frustrating. If you get caught: Take revenge!
Use the orbital-mega-laser to chase and stun the remaining players! You could take revenge on the guy who took you out, hunt down the one who is leading the match, or just decorate the planet with some new craters!
To get the most fun out of this combination of combat, item variety and destruction we think local multiplayer is the best option available!
Watching each other struggle, laugh and sometimes get annoyed because some guy just kicked you out of the game: we think this is something best experienced with other players right around you :)!
