The time has come to pound the pavement and save the earth from impending doom! 345 Games, the video gaming arm of Comedy Central and Spike TV, announced today that its upcoming shooter Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon will be launching for the PlayStation Network and XBOX Live Arcade on August 30th for $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points).
Developed by Backbone Entertainment, the hilarious game unites the humour and spirit of the popular animated comedy-horror television show Ugly Americans, with classic and addictive dual analog shooting gameplay. The game features all of the voice actors from the show, a script penned by the show’s writers and original characters created by show creator, Devin Clark.
“It won’t be too much longer until gamers everywhere can get their hands on the first COMEDY CENTRAL branded arcade game,” said Dan Yang, general manager, 345 Games. “We’ve been working hard to infuse ‘Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon’ with a combination of addicting gameplay and the comedic sensibilities that has made the show such a success. We feel that we’ve created an original and memorable game play experience.”
With four-player top-down co-op gameplay that hearkens back to such classics as Gauntlet and Robotron, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon features four playable characters, each with their own unique abilities, weapons and strengths.
Players must comb the streets of New York City and pacify raving demons, delinquent man birds and zombies by lactating fire or hurling wacky objects like flying demon skulls, fish, baseballs and wrenches. Investigate case files from the Department of Integration and battle devastating and distinctive bosses at the end of each mission, each bringing you one step closer to finding out who is trying to bring about the end of days!
