hyper knights challenges dlc releases in linux mac windows games

While slashing and dashing your way through hundreds of enemies. Now the fast-paced skill-based action of Hyper Knights gets a new DLC. Hence, Challenges, now available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the creator of Blueprint Tycoon and Game Corp DX expands the game again. While already introducing multiplayer. Now players can take their games to the next level. And honestly, I’ve played Hyper Knights. As one of the smaller games, but one of the best from Endless Loop Studios.

So here are the Challenge modes:

  • Challenge: Archer Surround
    Dodge as many arrows as you can!
  • Challenge: Bleeding
    Take out as many enemies as possible!
    Your health is constantly dropping
    Charge your combo and heal yourself
  • Challenge: Provide Support
    Protect your minions!
    Score increases for each friendly Minion that is alive
  • Challenge: Super Self
    Survive for as long as you can!
    Attack and counters are disabled
    Grab the pick ups to charge your combo and unleash SUPER SELF on your enemies

So the point of Hyper Knights is to become stronger. While learning new powerful combos to help you on your journey.
Since gameplay has players raising an army, learning powerful combos to take back the land. Therefore we are pleased Endless Loop Studios continues to release new content. Since the successful Greenlight campaign in January followed by the Early Access debut. Only three months of Early Access development and now the game officially launches. Endless Loop Studios is living up to the defined May 2017 release.

Death by Game Show a twitch-action strategy releases on Steam January 22

deathbygameshow_coming_to_linux_mac_windows_pc

In the 26th century, humanity has become utterly and irreversibly stupid…more so. Only a lovable tub of goo by the name of U.H. Wutt demonstrates an acceptable level of intelligence, but the droids and robots who now run the world don’t take kindly to U.H. Wutt’s non-moronitude. Because of it, U.H Wutt has been sentenced to Death by Game Show.

Death by Game Show is a twitch-action and strategy game, a hybrid where #reaction and resources are equally important. Inspired by the movie Idiocracy, pop culture, and game developer #Oointah’s skewed sense of #humor, this is a unique twist on off-the-wall-strategy.

“We set out to make a frenetic arcade game coupled with a quickfire strategy element—essentially a game covered in Elvis dust that we’d want to play,” said Malcolm Michaels, founder of Oointah. “During development, the team was inspired by middle-out algorithm and a shared affection for Idiocracy, and thus Death by Game Show’s story has unintentionally become a love letter to writer/director Mike Judge’s brilliant movies and TV shows.”

Death by Game Show Features

  • Blast through 50 challenges of rehabilitation: cause destruction, fight for survival, and beat pre-set conundrums!
  • You’re chained to the Game Show Intimidation Masheen of Pwnage (“Bring out The G.I.M.P.”) – Use it to spawn droids, call in building support, and dominate the field of play.
  • Win an arsenal from the Wheel of Misfortune game show spinner and then risk it all as you struggle through many brutal challenges.
  • 10 different Force-crushing droids including the roller-skating ninja Madichin and the toothy British airborne bomb dropper RD-SLK. (BB who?!)
  • 10 defensive weapons & buildings that feature “Upgrayedd” technology, including:
    • Yeah *Bleep*! Magnets! – a giant toaster that shoots over-sized exploding magnets.
    • Droid Barracks — wait, a more alarmist name would be… Kent Brockman’s Killbot Factory.
    • DieSuperheroDie – all superheroes, zombies, and minions were rounded up in the 22nd century and electrocuted with this invention.
    • Rust in Peace – delivers a Megadeth-sized barrel of bereavement.
    • The GOFU – protect yourself before the droids wreck yourself with this shield of love.
  • Six unique power-ups including the Speed Runner, It’s Got Electrolytes, Sexy Time, and Mama Said Knock You Out.
  • Build challenges, customize skins, and edit all text in game – Make the Death by Game Show experience your own via the Steam Workshop.

In addition, Oointah is hard at work on a spring 2016 update that will include at least 30 new challenges, an “Off-Air” Skirmish mode, editor updates, and further localization. The developers also have their eye on adding multiplayer support in the future.

Death by Game Show releases January 22 on Steam for $14.99 with Linux, Mac, and Linux versions will be available at launch.

System Requirements

  • OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS fully updated

The first update for RageSquid‘s #EarlyAccess “toystalgic speedrunning #platformer,” Action Henk, adds seven levels and harder challenges for players seeking something a little more #difficult, the developer announced via Steam.

In Action Henk, players must master their momentum to successfully race against a collection of ’90s action figures. The new levels, which include “The Drop,” “Pro Skater” and “Leap of Faith,” range from easy to hard; those seeking more of a challenge can also try for Rainbow Medals, challenges RageSquid say feature “extreme difficulty for the die-hard players.”

Matador is an isometric tactical vehicle-action game coming to PC, Mac, and Linux

Matador game is a tactical vehicle-action coming to PC, Mac, and Linux

New four-man #indie team Stellar Jockeys has revealed its upcoming debut game, Matador.

Matador is an isometric tactical vehicle-action game where players fight against four factions in nine city districts. Each playthrough is different — and tough, with no XP and no saves. It’s due sometime this year for PC, Mac, and Linux.

The challenges and placement and spawning of enemy concentrations are also semi-randomized, but you can make headway by unlocking new options and equipment.

The developer promises the environments are “completely destructible.” Matador is up for approval on Steam Greenlight.

Rogue Legacy and Gaming on a Budget

High on graphics, but low on funds? This is Gaming on a Budget, an #indie #game review. This week, I’m talking about “Rogue Legacy,” a platformer by Cellar Door Games. “Rogue Legacy” is available on Windows, Mac and Linux. Inspired by the niche genre of “roguelikes,” “Rogue Legacy” embodies all the strengths of its predecessors, especially in its simplistic, unmerciful and ultimately addicting gameplay, but brings it to a new audience in a new way.
After a brief tutorial sequence, the game tosses you into a large, explorable castle. The goal is simple: beat the four bosses and multiple environs scattered throughout the massive estate in order to open the large golden door at the entrance of the castle, before battling the final boss within. Throughout the castle are breakable objects, dangerous traps and aggressive enemies. As you journey throughout, you collect gold and treasure, until you inevitably fall to the dangers of the dungeon. That’s when “Rogue Legacy” reveals the feature that separates it from its competitors.

Rather than respawn your character, you must choose an heir from three options, with a random class, gender and selection of traits. While gender is little more than aesthetic, each class requires different play styles, and each trait can change the game experience by draining color, reversing directions, or depriving you of much needed information. Your heir inherits the gold you just collected, and has a chance to buy skills, power-ups and items before he must offer the remainder of his gold to re-enter the castle and continue his quest. However, you’ll notice some changes, such as the castle being completely randomized, spawning new rooms, enemies, treasures and challenges each time.

From there, the game continues on the simple formula: enter the castle, gather gold, choose an heir, buy more skills and equipment to strengthen that character, and enter the dungeon again. Each time you enter, your characters become stronger and will get further than the last; you find more powerful items, more gold, and more difficult enemies and traps. “Rogue Legacy’s” strength lies in its simplicity, making it easy to just play a quick life here or there and get further, but it also keeps you coming back for more as you learn more tricks or earn more skills. Despite the random nature of the dungeon, the game does suffer somewhat from its repetitive gameplay, but the wide array of enemies and challenges tend to make sure you stay hooked.

Overall, “Rogue Legacy” is a challenging, but extremely fun experience. It can be bought on Steam for only $15, or from the game’s website, Rogue Legacy.com. Nervous about spending that money? The website also offers a free short demo that gives a good sample of the gameplay.
