9.0 / 1
|‘Nanobeast’ is a challenging retro shooter with a unique upgrade system that involves collecting power-ups. However, when you collect a power-up (P) that does not mean you have upgraded immediately. You get to choose how to use those power-ups to upgrade your general stats:
- speed of your ship (you need 1 power-up)
- power of your weapon (you need 2 power-ups)
- fire rate of your weapon (you need 3 power-ups)
- bombs (you need 4 power-ups)
- lives (you need 5 power-ups)
There are 2 additional weapons to be collected as you play: missiles and side gun.
There are 27 medals to be achieved.
The game is generally very challenging. There are three difficulty settings: normal, hard and insane. There is no easy.
The game supports highscores and has a system that multiplies your score depending on which difficulty setting you play and how many medals you have collected.
The game features original 8-bit music written especially for ‘Nanobeast’ by Christian Erenskjold, a very talented musician from Finland. Other musicians who also contributed are listed in the credits.
I have been developing and beta testing this game heavily for a long time. Any feedback and ideas will be greatly appreciated.
