Gunslugs Coming To 3DS

Gunslugs 2 was released on the 3DS last summer via the eShop. It’s a 2D side-scrolling shooter with stylized 8/16-bit graphics. The original game is finally going to see a release on the 3DS eShop for only $1.99. It should be available in the next few weeks and will include leaderboards with randomly generated levels. Below are some screens from the Android version of the game:

Gunslugs is developed by OrangePixel and published by Engine Software. A full description from the developer’s site is below:


Evil army? Check! Explosions, chaos, and screen-shakes? Check! A group of familiar looking heroes? Check!

Welcome to Gunslugs!

Fight the evil Black Duck army as they try to take over the planet using their technology and a huge collection of foot soldiers.

You’ll get to fight on plane yards, jungles, Antarctica, Egypt and finally the gates of Hell. Drive tanks, fly jetpacks and shoot eggs out of a chicken-gun!

Gunslugs is a fast paced run and jump game with procedurally generated levels and a rogue-like permadeath element. You get one life, and the only way you can extend that is by running into the Voodoo priest selling continue statues.

Unlock the roster of Gunslugs heroes as you go, and use them to advance your way to the gates of Hell to defeat the final boss.

Collect coins to buy upgrades, improvements, and mini-games like the Donkey Kong inspired arcade game, the Game Boy level, the train-ride, sketchbook world, and much more…you might even bump into the man with a bow-tie and a blue box!
