SUPER MUTANT ALIEN ASSAULT OFFICIALLY DEPLOYS ON PS4, XBOX ONE AND PC ON 12 JULY (Video)
Developer Cybernate and publisher Surprise Attack Games today announced that the brutally random arcade platformer Super Mutant Alien Assault will officially release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on July 12. Pre-orders are now available on Xbox One.
Taking inspiration from unforgiving arcade classics and Vlambeer’s Super Crate Box, Super Mutant Alien Assault is a dance with death across randomised single-screen levels where dodging is as just important as shooting if you hope to survive. Played solo the game is frantic, but with local co-op, a second robot enters the fray, taking the platform shooter action to a level of mayhem.
Featuring a near bottomless pit of unlockable weapons, explosives, sidearms, special abilities, perks and defence moves, each single-screen level is a randomised combination of layout, vending machines, enemies and objectives. You’ll never know which weapons or grenades will spawn in the vending machines or which special abilities, sidearms, perks and defense moves will be served up. The more you unlock, the more mind-boggling the possible combinations.

•Solo or local co-op play
•Pumping dubstep soundtrack – wub wub
•Pre-orders available now on Xbox One

MORE INFO ON SUPER MUTANT ALIEN ASSAULT
Three fleets of spaceships flee a doomed Earth carrying the last humans in cryostasis. Pursued by aliens, it’s up to the lowly security droids to save humanity. Taking up arms solo or with a friend, you must dance with death in a brutal and addictive arcade platformer shooter inspired by Super Crate Box and stuffed to the brim with unlockables.
Fight through rapid fire single screen levels each with a random combination of platform layout, objective, vending machines and enemies. Dodge and weave amongst the aliens to stay alive but don’t leave them standing too long or the ship’s radiation will mutate them into bigger, nastier versions.
Only by unlocking and mastering the wild variety of weapons, explosives, special abilities, defense moves and perks can you hope to survive across all three galaxies, rid your ship of the mutant menace and save the oblivious humans.
Intense and brutal action – rapid fire levels give you no rest as hordes of enemies arrive, hell-bent on your destruction. Clear the objective quickly and be sure to kill each enemy before it has the chance to mutate into a bigger, nastier version of itself. Take a tiny breather and then it’s on to the next room.
Dance with death – in the tight confines of the space freighter, standing still is not an option. Your ability to dodge around enemies is as important as your aim. Survival requires quick thinking and rapid reflexes and a true master of the dance is a beautiful thing to behold.
Different every time – each single-screen level is randomised, drawing on a pool of platform layouts, objective types and enemies as well as which vending machines will be present. You’ll never know which weapons or grenades will spawn in the vending machines whilst crate drops containing special abilities, sidearms, perks and defense moves are also randomised, adding further to the mind-boggling possible combinations.
Overflowing with unlockables – a wealth of weapons, sidearms, special abilities, perks, explosives, defense moves and character skins awaits you. Each new unlockable joins the melting pot of random ingredients, increasing your options but also the need to master each individual element and the way they combine with each other.
Play solo or with a friend – take on the mutant hordes by yourself or team up in local co-op. Two player adds further complications to master as you must be careful to avoid friendly fire from explosives and will have to share/fight over item and health pack drops.
Keyboard and controller support – fully customisable controls using gamepads, keyboard or a combination of the two.
