FAQ

Updated: 01.12.2021

Is SPACE STRIKERS Amico exlusive or will it be released on other platforms?

SPACE STRIKERS is an Amico exclusive title. If you wonder what is meant by ‘exclusive’, we can refer you to the official Intellivision Amico FAQ (https://intellivision.com/faq/#about-the-games). At some point we will release the title GRAVIATORS which is aiming to be a SPACE STRIKERS-like experience for PC (and perhaps other platforms as well).

What further content can you expect to see in SPACE STRIKERS?

SPACE STRIKERS is centered around its classic sports-arena playstyle but will come with more additional content. Besides this, there are also special Amico controller interactions. Without going in too deep, we can share that there will be additional game modes with their own unique arena and several ships to choose from. In addition, we are continuously working on visual and mechanical improvements. This is subject to changes over time.

How does SPACE STRIKERS utilize Amico features and Amico Controllers?

Going along with the Amico Vision, we aim to deliver a family-friendly and casual product – mechanics and controls are easy to learn. We also plan to utilize the Amico Highscore System, so that players can compete against each other in a single player experience. To round up the Space Strikers experience, we take full advantage of the Amico Controller features like LED lightning, vibration and touch screen interactions (e.g. to choose your favourite ship design).

When will SPACE STRIKERS be released on the Amico?

SPACE STRIKERS aims to be a launch title, so you will be able to purchase and play it as soon as you get your Amico console.

What is it about NEON SHIFTER/GRAVIATORS?

NEON SHIFTER was our working title for the game. It was used mainly during funding aquisition. On other platforms, like PC, the seperate version will launch as GRAVIATORS. 

When will GRAVIATORS launch?

No information available currently. Stay tuned for more information!
