I know what you're thinking "I can't tell anyone I actually liked Powerpuff Girls!", never fear we are here. A new game is heading to our platform in the form of 'The Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville'.
It was supposed to come out in January, but Cartoon Network wanted it even more polished and to have a classic visual style added as an option:
I must say I much prefer the one on the left, the "classic" style, so hats off to Cartoon Network for allowing the developer time to add it!
The fact that the game-play is inspired by one of my all-time favourite Sega Megadrive games Gunstar Heroes, this should make for a very interesting arcade game.
I am actually excited to see how this turns out.
PPG: Defenders of Townsville is a metroidvania with flying superheroes and a heavy dose of action. There are locked doors, and upgrades that unlock new areas, and exploration (and a map). There are bi-directional attacks, with melee and ranged combat, and a super-fast dash. And there are 3 difficulty levels, plus a harder second quest with a whole new world layout and even crazier enemies.
All 3 girls are in the game (though you’ll only play as one at a time), with the real voice actresses lending their talents. And Mojo Jojo is the bad guy! And if you don’t like the modern-style graphics, you can play with classic-style visuals (and you can even pixelate the classic visuals if you’re really old-school). A gamepad is the best way to play and highly recommended, though you can play with the keyboard too.
