Games that head back into the 1980’s for some classic action cheese seem to be all the rage these days. Tango Fiesta is the latest title to take advantage of not only the sensibilities, but also classic game design.
As you might have guessed, Tango Fiesta is a twin-stick shooter that allows for up to four-players in co-op play online. The game is also something of a rouge-like and is a never ending assault on the forces of evil through several locales where you’ll “shoot, blast, brawl, dodge roll, upgrade, unlock, smash and puntastic one-liner” right through your enemies.
Andrew J Smith, founder of Spilt Milk Studios, says, “There are so many classic moments of satire, outrageous violence and quotable dialogue in all our favourite 80’s action flicks and we’re making Tango Fiesta the ultimate love letter to every last one of them. We can’t wait to see what the fans think!”
Andy Payne, CEO of Mastertronic, adds “I’ve got a feeling that once fans get hold of this the going will get tough, but we know Tango Fiesta fans will get going.”
Personally, I love the movies that Tango Fiests is based on and the arcade-y bent is something that you don’t see a whole heck of a lot in today’s game design, so I’m definitely interested in seeing what developer Spilt Milk Studios “scenery-chewing weaponry” can do. The game will be available on Steam through the magic of the Early Access program on June 4th along with the Get Games online storefront.
So you might want to start watching some classic flicks like Commando right now to get prepped.
