Rob Hale has just released his first press release about his upcoming PC game, Waves. Waves is a twin stick shooter that can be played by anyone, but with a high enough skill threshold to keep even the most hardened schmup fan entertained. The game is developed, coded, and designed by indie developer Rob Hale and it was built from the ground up to be accessible, yet require mountains of skill to master.
Rob Hale said:
“I wanted to make an action game that didn’t punish you if you weren’t part of the twin-stick elite, but also let shooter fans really test their skills. Everything else has been abandoned in the pursuit of making the world’s best twin-stick shooter. There are no space marines in my game.”
In Waves, the player controls a heavily armed ball. The goal is to clear the board of enemies while racking up a big fat Combo with swift kills and well timed Bombs and if it all gets a bit too much you can use your “Time Buffer” to slow down the action and turn defeat into victory. Players can compete across five different game modes with online high-score tables and Achievements in their pursuit of perfection.
Waves will be available Q4 2011, for digital download on PC from squidinabox.com and Steam.
