“Part of the replay value is building a game that holds up to repeated scrutiny.”
The developers of the upcoming Assault Android Cactus, Witch Beam have confirmed to us that their title will support cross buy and cross save between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
‘We’re going to support cross-save and cross-buy so you only pay once for the game across PS4 & Vita,’ said Sanatana Mishra, designer at Witch Beam
He also explained how they have focused on the replay value of Assault Android Cactus by adding extra content that can be unlocked.
“It’ll probably take players a few hours for the initial campaign play through but that could change drastically depending on your skill level as it’s a challenging game. For an arcade experience I would say we’re quite big but like any good arcade game we’ve focused on replay value in all of our designs: 8 characters with drastically different play styles, a full rank system for each stage, virtual currency that you can use to unlock additional content like artwork, codex entries, and EX options like Retro Camera mode that drastically change the game. There’s also Boss Rush & Endless mode for you to tackle once Campaign is complete, full online leaderboards for the hyper-competitive out there, and every mode is playable in full co-op with up to four players.”
Tim Dawson, artist and programmer of the game also commented on the matter. “Part of the replay value is building a game that holds up to repeated scrutiny. You can blast through a level and enjoy it, but if you come back to a stage, figure out the spawn timings, know when the pickups will drop, try to chain multi-kills together, it still holds up. It just becomes a different kind of fun, like the whole level is a puzzle where everyone is shooting at you,” he added.
