Alexander Birke from Out of Bounds Games has announced that his twin-stick shooter Laser Disco Defenders is coming to the PS Vita on July 26, 2016 digitally via the PlayStation Network featuring Cross-Buy support with the newly announced PS4 version which will be out later this year.
In a bid to defeat the evil Lord Monotone’s plan to control the galaxy, the Laser Disco Defenders must shoot and dodge lasers in a series of randomly generated levels. Each character is reminiscent of the 70’s disco era with flamboyant outfits and suits to strut their stuff in.
The player can choose the look and style of their character and then send them off as they battle their way through each level taking care not to be hit by the ricocheting lasers. Thanks to the randomly generated levels no play through is ever the same and the “master of the dance floor” can be viewed on the online leader boards.
Some of the enemies you will face in the game are:
- Chord Choppers
A not too bright enemy that will chase you down with his keytar axe and try and chop you to pieces like a broken piano. They are easily dealt with but since each shot you fire stays in the level you need to be strategic about when you take these guys out.
- Trumpet Troopers
Originally made by Monotone to play the backing tracks on his nefarious music, they also guard his lair. They also seem to suffer from a permanent cold but instead of blowing their nose they prefer to blow lasers at whatever moves. If left alone too long, they can quickly fill an entire room with lasers!
- Laser Lancers
One of the hardest enemies in the game, these robotic knights use their LP shields to block incoming lasers. When they are blocking, their visibility will be reduced – use this to your advantage!
