MWNY: Freeverse Reveals Wingnuts
6:41 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Freeverse Softwarehas revealed Wingnuts at MWNY; this title is an overhead view aerial action shooter in which players must stop the theft of warplane technology through the decades. Based on the OpenGL graphics language, players must fight waves of enemies using a traditional arcade perspective.


Unlike a standard arcade shoot-em-up, players are free to roam around levels instead of being confined to a single direction. Additional breaks from the standard arcade model can be seen in the game's power-ups, bosses, strafe mode and limited amounts of fuel. Players will have to plan their attacks according to their current resources instead of simply blasting away at everything that moves. Wingnuts will be written for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. Freeverse recommends Mac OS 8.6 or later to run the game, which will retail for $25 and be available in this fall. Hopefully we can bring you some images of this game in action from the Expo.
