FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jan 27, 2014 – Chainsawesome Games ( http://chainsawesomegames.com/) is stomping with the beat towards their first release on Steam with the award winning BeatBlasters III, a unique platformer game that mixes rhythm with a funky fresh world full of colorful, strange, characters and places. BeatBlasters III won Intel's LevelUp, Best in Sound award and features an amazing soundtrack of dynamic music, changing based on your accuracy and maneuvers performed in the game. For a sneak peek watch the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0St8TD6w78o

Take control of Joey or Gina, two beat loving kids with some amazing powers (and totally different music) as they save the inhabitants of the town of Accapella from the music hating butcher. Armed with their three powers they will protect and aid the denizens of this strange land; for right, justice, and the freedom to listen to some killer tunes.

Each character in Beat Blasters III has unique music as well as a unique special power to aid them on their quest. Each character also shares the same three main abilities, an attack power, a shield bubble, and jet boots. Each use of these items depletes their energy, which is recharged through accurate rhythm tapping. However, while building energy the heroes are unable to attack or defend themselves, making the pacing of energy growth and decline a frantic battle of the bands. Every level and battle is a totally unique experience, keeping the game fresh as the kids attempt to reach The Butcher and end his reign of silence. The better you do on each level the more stars you'll earn towards unlocking 8 different weapons to use in your battle against silence.

BeatBlasters III is a fun for all ages romp through a crazy world with amazing tunes and completely original gameplay. Winner of the LevelUp Best in Sound award it will truly knock your socks off. Learn more at http://chainsawesomegames.com/beatblasters-iii/
