AVAST ME POWDER MONKEYS! First Screenshots and Battle System Details Within



The combat system in Powder Monkeys is a unique blend of raw action and strategy, simplicity and depth. If you’ve played Rocket Slime or the Megaman Battle Network games, be prepared for something even better. If you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat.



The idea is simple: blast the enemy ship by loading the ships’ cannons with bullets, and defend your own boat at the same time. To start off, your boat will come equipped with two types of bullets: basic and shield.

Tap the type of bullet you want to use, tap the cannon you want to fire it from, and watch the insects take the blast! Starting your chase, you’ll be attacking with basic bullets once you find openings in the enemy’s defense, and counter the enemy bullets by firing cannons from your shields - make ‘em insect timbers shiver! ARR!



But be warned me monkeys: things will get more intense and advanced quickly! We’ll be talking about the nitty-gritty of more advanced combat soon, but in the meantime, check out a sneak peek of another bullet type that you can unlock as you fight and conquer, in the Powder Monkeys world:



Watch this space for more info soon! In the meantime, let us know what you think about the combat system so far!
