26 NOVEMBER 2020 - Today developers Digiplox Studios launched their retro-inspired action platformer Android Hunter A on PC via Steam with a brand new gameplay trailer.

Rocket launcher at the ready, it's time for players to take to the streets as a deadly Android Hunter in this 2.5D adventure. A corrupt robotic uprising is swarming the city, and you're the machine designed for the job of putting a stop to their destruction.

Fusing classic side-scrolling gameplay with fully animated cinematic cutscenes, Android Hunter A is looking to bring features of nostalgic titles like Megaman X into the current generation of gaming. The action packed run-and-gun revitalizes retro platforming, with online leaderboards and slick combat inspired by classic fighting games Tekken and Street Fighter - ideal for genre veterans and new players alike.

Players can be a part of the action now on Steam. 

Vijay Kumar, Lead Developer, said "Android Hunter A started as a love letter to the Megaman X series, but over the years, our ideas and expectations became more and more ambitious, to the point where it became much more than that.

"Our main goal was to push the boundaries for what it means to be an action packed sidescroller shooter, and look to be something innovative in such a beloved genre.

"After officially announcing Android Hunter A to the world, we’re excited to see such a positive response come back from the community!

If you’re a fan of the Megaman X series and retro platformers alike, you won’t want to miss Android Hunter A at launch!"

Android Hunter A is available now on PC via Steam.
