Description

4 INSANE 2D retro shooters, each with their own wild twist on the shooter formula! (Each game is sold individually as well, but the Action Pack bundle features a discount on the 4 games when you buy them together.)

History

During 2008-2011, Mommy's Best Games made its name creating imaginative action games on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel. Each of these 4 award-winning games was crafted to give the player excellent return on their time investment. There's no fluff here, just wild shooting action that will fit perfectly into that tiny amount of free-time you have, now that you're old and barely get to play cool games anymore! Each game in the Action Pack was carefully ported to Steam and features remappable controls, working with keyboard and mouse or with an Xbox 360 controller, and has been re-tuned and balanced for a perfect action experience.

Features

  • 'Weapon of Choice' A Contra-style game with each player character having their own special weapon! Enjoy branching paths, unlockable new characters, multiple endings, death-defying abilities and more! All new Achievements created just for the Steam release!
  • 'Shoot 1UP' Play all your ships at once in this crazy take on bullet-hell shooters! Scared of 'bullet-hell'? Try this, it's much more forgiving! Branching paths, unlockable features, and 2-player local coop!
  • 'Explosionade' Grenade-blasting, alien-mashing, mech-jumping mania! With 40 levels to conquer, there's choice-driven endings, gameplay speed options, and 2-player local coop!
  • 'Game Type' A looping, high-score shooter in which each loop increases the game speed! Bring a friend for 2-player local coop! All new Achievements created just for this release!
  • Steam Enhancements: The Action Pack games feature Steam Leaderboards*, Achievements, Trading Cards, remappable controls and have all been re-tuned to perfection! (Weapon of Choice does not have leaderboards as it has no score.)
  • Respect for Your Time: Each game can be satisfyingly experienced within a few hours! Sure there's more endings and difficulties to play, but if you're short on time, you'll get a memorable experience with 0-grinding here, it's just all-good action feels you miss so much!
