Default MUKS, a old school cave-shooter (split-screen multiplayer)


I'm currently finishing a old-school "cave-shooter" inspired game called MUKS. These so called cave-shooters were quite a big thing in the 90's at least in Finland. People may recall classics like TurboRaketti, AUTS, KOPS or Wings etc. there were tons of those back in the day.

What made those games so fun and playable, in my opinion, were the ability to play them on the same keyboard. I'm having a similiar approach here with a single iPad with split-screen and on-screen touch controls.

Game features initially:
-Single player training & split-screen two-player skirmish game mode
-Around 6 hand-crafted levels with varying graphics theme and gameplay changing theme (in space, or on planet surface)
-14 deadly weapons and gadgets (including, but not limited to, classics like morning star, mines, bombs, rail gun, machine gun, missiles etc.)
-Play as the pilot of your ship (When on low health, there is a possibility to eject out and continue playing with your jetpack and peagun)
-Destructible terrain (blow it away with exploding weapons)
-Ability to tailor each match to players' needs, enabling and disabling features, adding handicaps, tweaking gravity etc.
-Option to configure controls for both right and left-handed players
-Soundtrack featuring some kickass space-shootin' tracks
-Everyplay service to record and share your replays

More to come later on, like a single-player only missions campaign that I didn't have time to complete for the initial release.

The game will be FREE fully, no ads or free-to-play stuff and it will be out in the near future, I'm looking at the end of this month possibly.

I am working on a release trailer and gameplay trailers to get a better picture on the game
