London, UK - 15 November 2012 - Independent game
Eiconic Games is proud to announce the launch of
Total Recoil for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Total Recoil is a
top-down arcade shooter that packs an armour-piercing punch, where
subtlety is NOT an option and where BIG guns, HUGE bosses and MEGA
explosions rule the day.
Total Recoil starts each player off as a lowly enlisted Private.
They then work their way up through the ranks by blasting through
wave after wave of gun-toting grunts, turrets, gunships,
mega-tanks, mines and more. Along the way, players can arm
themselves with a huge array of weapons as well as raining down
death and destruction upon their enemies by earning
‘Killstreaks’ - including artillery strikes, aircraft
strafing runs, sentry guns and smart bombs. Particularly impressive
feats of destruction earn the player ‘bucks’ which they
can then use to upgrade their character’s key attributes,
unlock new items, and also boost the destructive power of their
weapons and killstreaks.
“We set out to make the most over-the-top, most addictive,
most explosive action game possible,” said Neall Jones, CEO,
Eiconic Games. “We’ve really turned the volume up to
eleven on Total Recoil, merging its very distinctive
tongue-in-cheek styling with larger-than-life weapons, bosses and
explosions to give players an incredibly satisfying experience.
It’s the most gun toting, flame throwing, rocket launching,
