Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below.
Buckle up. This is gonna be...
Pacific Warriors is a WWII air combat game. It's an action packed 3D game, where the player will face countless enemies in the air as well as on the ground. He pilots different kinds of American fighter aircrafts. A "radar" will guide him through level after level, where stronger and stronger enemies will confront him the farther he gets. Power-ups, machine guns and special weapons will be at his disposal, and aid his progress.
The game will focus on easy control of the plane and intense entertaining action. Pacific Warriors could also be described as a modern 3D version of the good old shoot'em up arcade games.
Pacific Warriors takes place over the islands of the Pacific Ocean, in battles between American and Japanese forces. The game will focus on the American forces, where the player will be able to fly different American planes through the scenario.
The campaign will be divided into 5 themes, each with 5 levels, which in turn are divided into stages. All in all there will be 25 levels each containing between 3-10 stages.
At the end level of each theme, the player will be confronted with an extra tough "Boss Enemy". Should the player die, he will be able to restart the game from the last completed level.
