Huntdown

Coffee Stain Studios have announced that Huntdown will be released on May 12th in Europe and North America. It’s now available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features for the game:

The 16-bit platformer offers partners in cleansing crime the option to hunt in pairs with local co-op, or go lone wolf in the mean streets of mayhem. Set in a bleak dystopian future where sadistic gangs rule and cops fear to tread, only three legendary bounty hunters have the arsenal and killer instincts to take back the city from the corrupt fist of felony. Inspired by the action movies and pop culture of the 80s with a gritty, violent twist, Huntdown is an old school arcade side scroller for the modern bounty hunter. The slick platformer features hand painted 16-bit pixel art graphics and hand-drawn animations, combined with fluid action-packed 60-FPS gameplay and an epic 80s soundtrack pumping dark wave, industrial synth, hard rock and electro through 20 unique levels.

  • Two player local co-op
  • Three legendary bounty hunters to play as: 
    • Anna Conda: Ex-commando and firearms expert. A loose-cannon trained to assassinate without question or mercy. 
    • John Sawyer: Special forces cop who left the law behind. This scarred veteran has lost so many limbs in combat he’s half robot. 
    • Mow Man: Modified recon droid, stolen and empowered with banned software.  Trades bodies for cold hard cash.
  • 20 levels: Gritty, neon soaked, graffiti strewn 80s cityscapes to cleanse, each with their own infamous gang boss to terminate and bounty to collect.
  • Unique gangs to target:
    • Hoodlum Dolls: Violent feral punks winning the gang war with the toothless authorities
    • Misconducts: Organised hockey hooligans, experts in robbery and extortion with a penchant for explosives
    • The Heatseekers: Murderous motorcycle club. These rockabilly villains style themselves on the centurions of Ancient Rome 
    • NO.1 Suspects: Masters of discipline and organised crime. Martial arts experts, these slick psychopaths control the night through their casinos and nightclubs
  • Choose your weapon: Confiscate machine guns,  laser weapons, katanas, grenades and more, and turn them on their owners. Stab, shoot and explode your way through swathes of gangs and bosses and collect your bounty.
