Game: Reshoot R released
Press release: Bombs away for Reshoot R - Modern action for the retro platform Amiga

PŘrge/▄bersee, May 28th, 2019: The development studio spieleschreiber and the publisher APC&TCP today announce the availability of the retro action game Reshoot R.

After almost three years of development, Reshoot R finally lights up its laser cannons - as you'd expect, for original Amiga hardware. The horizontal scrolling shoot'em up, in the style of classics like "R-Type", throws the player into an exciting space battle. In five elaborately designed themed worlds, fighter pilots fight side-by-side with the courageous space heroine Aryn against the attacks of the evil Tars species.

The action remains faithful to arcade traditions to combine elaborate high-end visuals with high-speed, demanding challenges. Fast gameplay, breathless dynamics, and exciting tension peaks characterise the fight between the heroine and the ballet of attack waves. Extra weapons and power-ups support her in her fight for survival. If your battle is fought successfully, eternal glory awaits you in the automatically saved highscore list. In addition, there is a premiere for Amiga action games: Those pilots can enter their performance on an internet ranking website and so they can compare their skills against those of other gamers.

Reshoot R is initially available as three seperate releases: Download Edition, Pure Edition and Signature Edition. The Pure Edition includes the game on CD-ROM and a printed manual. The Signature Edition has the game on CD-ROM, with a printed manual including a making-of special and the soundtrack on a separate audio CD. The audio CD soundtrack is also available separately.

All Amiga products are now available in the online shop of APC&TCP. Any specialist dealers who want to offer Reshoot R directly to their customers may contact APC&TCP by e-mail for details.
