Retro Action Platformer Steel Assault Drops Today on Nintendo Switch & Steam
MONTREAL — Sept. 28, 2021 — Side-scrolling-enthusiast developer Zenovia Interactive and the pixel art aficionados at publisher Tribute Games have joined forces to launch Steel Assault: a classic 2D action platformer delivering a solid throwback arcade experience in all the right ways. Steel Assault is available today on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop and PC via Steam at the explosive price of $14.99 (with a special 10% launch discount for a limited time).
You are Taro Takahashi, a resistance soldier on a revenge mission against the dictator who lords over the ashes. You’ll punch enemies and zipline your way out of danger in a post-apocalyptic America beautifully rendered in 16-bit-style graphics.
- TRUE ARCADE EXPERIENCE: A classic gaming throwback for both the old school and newer generations. Regardless of skill, there’s a difficulty mode for everyone. Arcade mode is the ultimate Steel Assault experience — a “1 coin clear” mode for the hardcore and speedrunners.
- 4:3 ASPECT RATIO/CRT FILTERS: Zenovia Interactive founder Sri Kankanahalli designed Steel Assault with the traditional 4:3 aspect ratio to keep the action quick and surprising… just like it was back in the day. Steel Assault’s many filters and video options are adjustable to accommodate a range of gaming setups.
- EXPLOSIVE SOUNDTRACK: A superb, fast-paced and aggressive soundtrack that adds a layer of pressure and anxiety to the experience. Beautiful FM-synthesized tunes with just enough industrial rock and chiptune to please bit-crunched music fans.
Tribute Games is the developer and publisher of beloved pixel games Panzer Paladin, Mercenary Kings, and Flinthook. The studio is currently developing the highly anticipated official TMNT beat-em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The signing of Steel Assault in November 2020 marked Tribute Games’ debut as a publishing partner for other developers.
