Description


Your shift on a gas giant mining platform does not go as planned. You're gonna have to shoot a lot of robots. Your main tools are an energy cannon and the architect: a tool that can move terrain to clear paths, defeat enemies, and launch you skyward.




Here's the kind of stuff you'll do while playing Cloudbase Prime:
  • Jump
  • Shoot
  • Jump while shooting
  • Blow up mech walkers leg by leg and then watch their stupid heads roll off a cliff and fall into the clouds below
  • Raise/lower terrain to open paths, launch enemies, launch yourself, or stop a homing missile from hitting you in the face
  • Shoot super weapons
  • Explore a lost mining platform on a distant gas giant in an attempt to escape, and maybe even figure out how the hell there's grass growing there
  • Save lots of grinning fixbots
  • Ride rails, jump into glowing hover beams, navigate holographic terrain, and more!

"What’s great about Cloudbase Prime, though, isn’t the little details the designer’s had time to lavish on the project. It’s the way he’s zeroed in on one interaction – raising or lowering the ground – and then made it fun and tied it into both traversal and combat." - Edge Online[www.edge-online.com]

"It also features a high-flying, wonderfully exhilarating central mechanic and very, very silly voice acting. So mainly, it’s a puzzle platformer about raising and lowering platforms that catapult you into the sky while hyperactive robots chatter in chuckle-worthy fashion." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"Great visuals, fun gameplay and hilarious audio make this a game we can’t recommend highly enough. Prime yourself for big laughs and big fun!" - Alpha Beta Gamer[www.alphabetagamer.com]

Oh yes! I remember playing this game in a game jam (I think it was the 7dfps but I'm not sure). I enjoyed then and I enjoy it now, so you have my upvote.
