PIXEL PUNCH-UPS IN YOUR POCKET: HUNTDOWN HITS MOBILE TODAY
The critically-lauded, outrageously bloody, retro-style platformer from the publishers of Valheim drops on Android and iOS devices today, with a free demo and barrage of optimised features playable in the palm of your hand
SKÖVDE, Sweden – May 26th, 2021: Coffee Stain Publishing and Easy Trigger Games are excited to announce that the chaotic bounty-hunting shooter Huntdown lands on the App Store and Google Play today. With integrated iCloud and Game Center support, players can save across Apple devices, including Apple TV, picking up their progress from anywhere.
Brimming with electrifying, hilarious gameplay and dialogue, Huntdown has gained overwhelmingly positive attention since its original release in May 2020. With a collective Metacritic rating of 86%, and nominations for Indie Game of the Year and Excellence in Multiplayer at the prestigious 2021 SXSW Awards, Huntdown isn’t short on accolades! Its intricate pixel-art underworld populated with ruthless hoodlums and overrun by explosive gang warfare, continues to transport gamers back to the wit and grit of classic action movies and coin-op arcades of yesteryear.
Initially built for mobile before its development for other platforms, Huntdown has now been specially mastered for the perfect portable experience. Players can kick back and kick butt with couch co-op, connecting multiple controllers to any device to clean up the grimy cityscapes as a unit. What’s more, the game is available as a free demo to try before purchase, without any micro-transactions.
For those unfamiliar with Huntdown, you play as one of three relentless bounty hunters tasked to keep order in a cyberpunk, concrete jungle infested with organised crime. Take to the streets, alleys, and rooftops in twenty levels adorned with hundreds of stunning pixel-art animations, set to a booming electro-synth soundtrack inspired by the music of the 80s.
“We’re so excited to make the Huntdown experience that much more accessible by launching it on mobile and Apple TV, Easy Trigger have put a lot of time and love into it, and it feels awesome to be able to release such a labor of love on mobile.”
said Albert Säfström, CEO of Coffee Stain Publishing.
Tommy Gustafsson, Co-Founder and Director of Easy Trigger, added:
“It’s amazing to watch Huntdown’s development come full-circle, as we’d always planned for it to be a mobile game from the offset. We’re so glad to be able to bring it home after such a positive reception, and give people the chance to pick up and play wherever they go.”
