We’ve been following Shoot1UP, the vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up from Mommy’s Best Games and Microsoft Studios, for quite a while now. We first previewed the game way back in October 2011, and most recently got some hands-on time with it at E3. Thankfully Shoot1UP’s release finally draws near, as it lands this very month. Details and official trailer after the break.
Back in October, we were happy to present to you an exclusive look at Shoot1UP from Mommy's Best Games but since then we haven't heard much on the title. The shoot 'em-up/bullet hell game brings some unique controls and exciting arcade gameplay to our trusty phones. Plus it comes with three free ringtones. Holla.
The game is here at E3, which is a bit of a pleasant surprise. What does that tell us? That this game is finally getting ready for its debut and we're stoked. The game should not be as hard as DoDonPachi which should be relief for many of you but it will still be challenging.
Shoot1Up features dense, detailed graphics with smooth gameplay. There's a lot going on here both in terms of moves, skills and goals so it should keep many of us busy. Read our detailed write up about the style and features of this game for more info.
Our friends at Xbox360Achievements.org recently spent some face time with Microsoft’s Raymond Estrada, who showcased several current and upcoming Xbox live titles for them. The video is our first chance to see several of these games in motion, plus it confirms a few choice details like Pinball FX 2’s payment structure. Head past the break for a full description of each game and links to our previous coverage.
Shoot1UP is a vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up that’s coming to Xbox Live next year. As such, it will support Mango from the outset. One juicy Mango feature that developer Mommy’s Best Games has in store for gamers is the inclusion of not one, but three free ringtones with the game. Fine by me; Shoot1UP’s energetic techno music should be a great way to alert us to incoming calls.
Seeing as how the bundled ringtone feature is new to Windows Phone games and applications, the online knowledge base apparently still has some kinks to work out. At the Mommy’s Best Games Devlog, developer Nathan Fouts has posted an in-depth writeup of his experience in adding ringtones to the game. We recommend Windows Phone developers in the same situation give his tips a look.
We briefly touched on Shoot1UP back in August when it appeared in the Gamescom WP7 sizzle reel. Today it’s time to let the cat out of the bag and reveal lots of details about this upcoming Xbox Live title.
Shoot1UP comes from Mommy’s Best Games, who are best known for their recent Serious Sam: Double D Xbox Live Arcade game. Before graduating to Xbox Live titles, they developed several Xbox 360 indie games, including Shoot1UP. The game is a vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up that stands out for several reasons.
