Short ‘n’ Sweet; Run ‘n’ Gun
Charlestown, IN –September 2, 2021 – Now on all consoles, indie developer Mommy’s Best Games releases its award-winning shooting creation, Weapon of Choice DX, to the world.
Weapon of Choice DX is a short and sweet run and gun shooter, with 4 unique endings and 7 difficulty settings. Play sessions are quick, around 10-15 minutes, but offer plenty of variety and surprises. Players can dynamically choose new directions in which to proceed and discover new levels and characters.
The DX version improves on the award-winning XBLIG hit with difficulty rebalancing, hidden collectibles, a new widescreen layout, and uprezzed 4K art. “I looked at every aspect of the beloved run and gun genre and tried to introduce something original and exciting. It’s still a hand-crafted shooting adventure, not a rogue-like, but there are lots of fun twists” says lead designer Nathan Fouts. “For instance, while you have three playable lives, there’s no standard ‘life’ system. The three lives are all unique characters! And if you can actually rescue a new character you find in a level, you’ll get them permanently as they act as a new life!” Fouts continued “Each of these characters has their own ‘weapon of choice’–each with unique, wildly original gameplay. But each character also has a ‘Spiderpack’ that lets you easily scale walls, climbing everywhere, all while blasting away. There are seven characters total, meaning if you can find them all, you get access to seven lives! And you’ll need them because the higher difficulties really crank it up.”
