Published by Tribute Games and developed by Zenovia Interactive, Steel Assault is a fast-paced, action-packed, 2D platformer in which players punch, whip, and zipline their way through a post-apocalyptic America. It offers a true ‘90s arcade game experience thanks to challenging gameplay tailored for a 4:3 screen resolution with optional arcade bezels. Players will be able to experience the game on “retro hard” or tone it down to a more casual platformer with a variety of different difficulty options.
 

Steel Assault’s official cover art, also revealed today, was made by prolific illustrator Hungry Clicker and can be seen at the end of the new teaser trailer and on the game’s Steam store page.
 

Tribute Games is the developer and publisher of beloved pixel games Panzer Paladin, Mercenary Kings, and Flinthook. The studio is currently developing the highly anticipated official TMNT beat-em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The signing of Steel Assault in November 2020 marked Tribute Games' debut as a publishing partner for other developers.
