Chesterfield, UK. – April 23rd, 2021 – Funbox Media Ltd will take players on a trip down memory lane for a true Flashback Friday experience, with the physical release of Terra Trilogy for the PlayStation®4 today and Nintendo Switch™ to follow in July.

Terra Trilogy features three full games in one package that pay homage to the classic and retro arcade genre of the 1980s. While capturing the twitch gameplay of their predecessors, they're brought to you in glorious HD using vector graphics to provide clean, never pixelated graphics and advanced Newtonian physics. Terra Lander, Terra Lander II - Rockslide Rescue, and Terra Bomber each offer the familiar boops and beeps that will inspire fond memories in veteran players while newcomers will appreciate the improved graphics, visual effects, and controls they come to expect from current-gen games.

Here’s a rundown of each game included in Terra Trilogy:

Terra Lander is a two-dimensional sideways scroller inspired by the classic arcade shooters of the 1980s. Navigate your ship to the landing pad through twenty increasingly difficult levels within the time limit and without running out of fuel. Avoid the moving doors and increasingly fiendish enemies, and find the switches for the doors that block your way.

Movement and firing uses up fuel throughout the level, and running out means you lose controls and cannot fire. Replenish your tank by shooting the fuel dumps, and if all fuel dumps are destroyed on any given level the player's fuel tank capacity is doubled for the next level (except in practice mode.).

Don't touch anything--that would be fatal!

Terra Lander II - Rockslide Rescue is the sequel to Terra Lander in which players must rescue humanoids from various landing pads across the planet. Complete ten levels of increasing difficulty within the time limit by rescuing all of the humanoids and flying above the planet to escape. Once these 10 levels are complete you will start again from the level 1 but with greater difficulty and force of gravity. Movement and firing projectiles use up fuel, so keeping an eye on your fuel levels is highly encouraged. Replenishing fuel can be done by shooting fuel dumps, but if pilots find themselves with an empty gas tank, they’ll lose control of their craft and be unable to fire missiles.

In Terra Bomber pilot your craft across ten increasingly difficult terrains while avoiding the various gun positions, rockets and baddies with only one objective: to destroy the base and the end of the level! Use your guns and bombs which can be bolstered by collecting power ups, and maintain a sharp eye on your fuel levels, keeping them topped up by destroying the fuel dumps.

Terra Trilogy is out today on PlayStation®4 in physical form and will land on the Nintendo Switch™ in July 2021.

Each of the 3 games can also be purchased individually on the PlayStation®4 Store Now!
