Description

Aperion Cyberstorm is a 2D sci-fi twin-stick shooter for 1-5 players on Nintendo Wii U. Travel through over 200 unique areas to discover what remains of your lost team. Use the Abilities and Elements you’ll find and mix them to unleash destruction with more than 1000 possible combinations – explode entire rooms of enemies with plasma-coated spiraling rockets, or smash an enemy to almost nothing with electricity-imbued mines before hitting their remains with lasers.

History

Game history

The game started life in October 2013 as a 1-4 player twin-stick shooter for Microsoft's XNA framework. Since then has gone through several improvements to become the game it is today, featuring an intense story-driven Campaign mode, challenging Onslaught mode and frienship-testing Versus mode.

Features

  • 1-5 player support in Campaign and Onslaught, with 2-5 player support in Versus.
  • All major Wii U control types supported.
  • Four worlds to explore as you search for Kate's lost team in Campaign mode.
  • Intense Onslaught mode for when you just want to blow things up.
  • Versus mode pits player against player in a feature-rich package of destruction.
  • 12 ships and 14 Abilities allow for hundreds of player combinations.
