Overview

Super Mega Space Blaster Special Turbo by Bare Knuckle Development is a fast-paced space shooter that merges modern and retro game mechanics. It is Bare Knuckle Development's first console release with versions on Nintendo Switch and PS4 as well as Steam(Win/Lin/Mac). The game has 5 modes, 15 space blasters, 40+ challenges and features both local cooperative and competitive play.

Gameplay

The game features 5 modes each with different objectives. In 'Save The Colony Mode' the objective is to remotely pilot a space blaster and rescue blastronauts by transporting them to a rescue ship at the bottom of the screen. In 'Survival Mode' the objective is to conserve ammunition and fuel and defeat the big-boss. In 'Protect Mother Mode' the objective is to protect a huge mothership at the bottom of the screen for as long as possible. In this mode the player can score combos to gain extra rewards. 'One Shot Mode' and 'To The Death Mode' are 2-player competitive game modes.

In all modes the player acquires screen-clearing big-bombs, shields, magnets and power-up weapons by destroying enemies. In the 3 none-competitive modes 2-player local co-op play is possible. In the game the player can collect coins called 'credits' by destroying enemies and by completing challenges. These credits can be spent in a shop to upgrade power-ups and weapons, to acquire perks, and to unlock extra music. The credits can also be spent in a mini-shop in the loading screen to acquire extra power-ups such as shields, big-bombs, and protectors. The player will start the game with anything purchased from the mini-shop giving them an advantage against the aliens.
