Interesting new game to look forward to from Atari.
Jeff Minter has a storied career that includes the creation of nearly 100 games spanning almost every generation of console. Among the two dozen titles he created for Atari and Atari hardware are Tempest 2000, Tempest 3000, and Tempest 4000™. Akka Arrh embodies his signature light-synth style and ability to craft a uniquely chaotic but extremely fun arcade experience.Key Features of Akka Arrh:
- A Whirlwind of Electrifying Color: From the mind of Jeff Minter, players will experience a cascade of words, color, shapes and sound flows as they mount the Akka Arrh and fend off attackers. An explosion of dazzling neon graphics, Akka Arrh is a visually stunning, action-packed arcade shooter.
- Ready, Aim, Fire!: Akka Arrh shares the name with the game’s titular star cannon, in which players control from a fixed turret called the Sentinel. Featuring fast-paced wave-shooter action, players will prevent enemies from penetrating the Sentinel’s perimeter, zooming into close range combat and beat them back if they penetrate their defenses.
- Mystifying Modes to Master: With two modes of play, pilots can start from the beginning and battle their way through 50 unique levels, or pick up where they left off to power through to the end.
- Accessibility is Key: Though Llamasoft is known for mind-blowing and vivid visual effects, not everyone is able to enjoy them. Luckily, in the remake, players are able to toggle the visual effects to a more suitable level.
