Rock Boshers DX: Directors Cut
The original Rock Boshers was an homage to ZX Spectrum games of the 1980s, created in Game Maker for a ‘demake’ competition. Now, makers Tikipod have updated their original concept and released the ultimate Directors Cut edition of their “top-down-and-side-on-8-way-directional-puzzley-arcade-shooter” for PS4, VITA and PC (via Steam).
With its faux Spectrum loading sequence, arcade mini-games, leaderboards, Trophies and 4 play local battle arenas (PS4 only) Rock Boshers DX: Directors Cut is a fantastic celebration of simple and frenetic gameplay.
“Get ready to take a nostalgia trip back beyond the 80s, to the 1800s! In this all new revamped widescreen version of RockBoshers DX!
A young Queen Victoria, tired of her dull Royal duties sneaks away incognito – in search of adventure on the recently colonised planet of Mars.
Upon arrival, a double cross follows where both she and her fellow travellers are captured and forced to bosh rocks in the deep Martian mines.
Help her fight her way across Mars and attempt to escape back home in this exceedingly RETRO ARCADE ADVENTURE!
Created to look, feel and sound like a ZX Spectrum styled videogame from the 1980s – Rock Boshers DX: Director’s Cut mixes top down and side on 8-way directional shooting action.
See amazing sights as you journey across Mars – drawn from an eye popping palette of 15 colours.
Prepare to bosh rocks! – with only the occasional break for tea and scones.”by
