FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ANDROID STOMP ATTACK!
—Android Exclusive Action Game “Replica Island” Ships—
Yokohama, Japan, March 818th, 2010— Independent game developer Team Replica announced today that side-scrolling Android™ game “Replica Island” has been released for the low, low price of $5.99free through Android Market™. Android Market is Google’s™ digital distribution system for Android-based mobile phones.
Replica Island is a side-scrolling 2D video game that stars the Android robot. The robot must fly, stomp, and roll his way through 40 action-packed levels to uncover the secret history of a mysterious tropical island and meet hot bikini babes. Designed from the ground up for Android devices, Replica Island is compatible with all major Android handsets, including the T-Mobile G1™, Verizon DROID by Motorola™, docomo HT-03A™, and Google Nexus One™. The source code for the game has been released for free under the Apache 2 license, and is sanctioned by Steve McQueen’s estate.
“We wanted to give Android users something new,” said Replica Island lead engineer and designer Chris Pruett™. “While there are plenty of games for Android, we noticed a lack of story-driven 2D side-scrolling action games involving the Android robot. We decided to do something about that.”
With life-changingly beautifulcute, hand-drawn characters and a retro style, Replica Island brings classic “platformer” game play to your Android device. Players must guide the Android robot as he searches for The Source, a mysterious object hidden somewhere in the depths of a bizarre island. The island is home to a diverse ecosystem of self-replicating robots and blood-thirsty creatures, but perhaps more dangerous is Mr. Rokudou, the leader of a shadowy mega corporation that is also after The Source. Players who are capable enough to find The Source may discover that not everything on Replica Island is as it seems; players who suck at life will not.
More information, including a development diary and game media, can be found on the Replica Island website, replicaisland.net. The complete source code to the game may be downloaded, modified, and used to create new games by mega-nerds who like that kind of thing. Replica Island itself can be downloaded directly from Android Market.
