Gunman Clive Creator Bringing Mechstermination Force To Switch On April 4
Part Contra and part Shadow of the Colossus, Mechstermination Force looks like it could truly be something special when it launches on the Switch eSho on April 4, 2019. This action game is by the same creator of the excellent Gunman Clive so we’re hoping for a repeat performance when it comes to fun and entertainment!
Independent developer Hörberg Productions today announced that its boss rush run and gun platformer Mechstermination Force will launch on the eShop for Nintendo Switch on April 4th, priced at €/$11.99 / £10.99. Featuring incredible boss battles, tight gameplay and beautifully colourful visuals, Mechstermination Force will test your skills to the limit.
Evil MegaMechs have taken control of the world, but a small group of brave soldiers led by Captain Johnson fight for the future of humanity, they call themselves the Mechstermination Force. Step into the boots of one of 4 new rookie recruits, and join the Mechstermination Force to lead the charge against the mechanical menace.
Directed by Bertil Hörberg, creator of the critically acclaimed Gunman Clive series, Mechstermination Force is an action platforming boss rush experience that will have you blasting giant mechs to kingdom come. Shoot your way through 14 massive bosses, each one completely unique in a complex run and gun platforming challenge. Each boss will need to be jumped or climbed on while avoiding their attacks. Damage their armour and shields with your blaster to expose their weak points, then hit them with your melee attack for massive damage. With awesome upgrades to your weapons and cool items like the Magnet Gloves and Boost Boots, Mechstermination Force is an intense and varied boss rush extravaganza.
Built on Hörberg Productions’ custom engine with beautiful 3D graphics featuring hand-painted textures, running at a silky smooth 60fps at a resolution of 1080p docked or 720p in handheld mode and featuring 2 player co-op in all control configurations, Mechstermination Force has been built and optimised from the ground up for Nintendo Switch.
“I am so happy to finally be able to share my next title with the world, I see it as the crazy lovechild of Contra and Shadow of the Colossus,” said Bertil Hörberg, Director of Hörberg Productions. “There have been many scrapped ideas following Gunman Clive in the lead up to this, but all worth it as I am immensely proud of Mechstermination Force. It plays beautifully and features some truly devious bosses, I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it!”
Battle against massive bosses, jump and climb onto them to find their weakspots and blow them to kingdom come in this action packed platforming boss rush, from the creator of the Gunman Clive series.
When the MegaMechs have taken control of the world, one small group of brave soldiers are still fighting for humanity’s independence. Join them and lead the charge against the mechanical menace.
Get powerful weapons and upgrades! Use the Magnet Gloves to climb on top of robots the size of Skyscrapers, double jump over pools of lava with the Boost Boots, and use your trusty baseball bat to smash the MegaMechs energy cores.
Take on the massive bosses alone or together with a friend in local co-op.
