Please Vote for ZANGEKI WARP - Now On Steam Greenlight!

We are pleased to announce that ASTRO PORT’s latest & greatest shooting game - ZANGEKI WARP – is now up on Steam Greenlight! Check out game details below and please visit the Greenlight page and vote YES to help bring this awesome game to Steam!!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=787972790
ZANGEKI WARP takes place just after the events of STEEL STRIDER. In this game, you take control of the hyperdimensional fighter craft ‘ZanFighter’ and use its advanced warp functions to defeat an army of space beasts controlled by an evil scientist!

ZANGEKI WARP’s warp capabilities bring a new twist to the style of Gradius, R-Type, and X-Multiply, and are the key to overcoming thrilling stages filled with traps and obstacles that would be impossible in regular shooting games. Use the warp functions to stop time, instantly warp through enemy fire and obstacles, and even to destroy enemies.

Greenlight approval permitting, we plan to release ZANGEKI WARP on both Windows and Linux in January 2017, priced only $5.99, and it will include Steam-based achievements, online trading cards, and online leaderboards.

On behalf of everyone at Nyu Media and ASTRO PORT, THANK YOU!!

About This Game

Side-scrolling mech-shooting bad-assery is BACK!

GIGANTIC ARMY is a heartfelt homage to 16-bit era mech shooters such as Cybernator / Assault Suits Valken, Metal Warriors, and Front Mission: Gun Hazard, developed by the studio behind the acclaimed shooter SATAZIUS.

It is the 21st century and Earth is at war with the Ramulons – an alien race determined to stop humanity’s advance into space.

Mankind’s war against the Ramulons has reached the planet Ramulon itself and it is now down to YOU to pilot the ‘GMR-34 SALADIN’ - a Manned Combat Robot - and take on the Ramulon army. Customize your arsenal of explosive, projectile and plasma weapons, and combine them with melee attacks, thrusters and shield to take the fight to the enemy and end the conflict!

GIGANTIC ARMY boasts awesome retro arcade stylings, slick animation, superbly detailed character and stage design, and addictively frenetic game play.

Features:
• Six stages of intense mech-shooting action!
• Twelve mid and end level bosses of gargantuan proportions to take down!
• Four difficulty modes from ‘Easy’ to ‘Insane’ to cater for all skill levels!
• Customizable weapons load-out to suit your play style!
• Dash, thrusters and shield give your mech satisfying maneuverability and defensive options!
• Rebalanced gameplay from the original Japanese version!
• 42 achievements!
• Steam Trading Cards!
• Linux Version!
• Bonus retro packaging PDF assets to create your own physical version!
