Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride Creators Introduce Colossatron: Massive World Threat, An Ode To Crazy 80s Cartoons

on July 19, 2013 10:45 AM


From the creators of hit mobile games Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride come an entirely new game, based on the “craziest anime and cartoons of the 80s:” Colossatron: Massive World Threat.

Halfbrick Studio’s Colossatron: Massive World Threat takes place in Metro City, where a massive robotic snake–called the Colossatron–has landed and started to wreck havoc and destruction everywhere it goes. As you can see in the frankly awesome trailer below, players will take on General Moustache and the Metro City military, charged with causing as much destruction as possible. The key to victory is extending the Colossatron with red, yellow and blue Powernodes, with each colored segment representing a different weapon or ability. Combining these to form new colors will build stronger Powernode tiers, and more “explosive secrets.” Halfbrick encourage players to experiment with different build strategies to see which hold up best in the heat of battle.

Colossatron: Massive World Threat will also include competitive and cooperative social features (more details on this promised to come soon) which will allow players to compare or combine their destructive powers.

No word yet on which platforms Colossatron: Massive World Threat will debut on, but it’s a good bet it’ll at least land on mobile devices, probably on consoles, and maybe on the PS Vita. Stay tuned for more news.
