Rocket 5 Studios has just released the first of three teaser trailers for XS FORCE. XS FORCE will be the studio’s fifth game on the App Store and it is an arcade-style character-based shoot ’em up for game iOS devices. The game features characters (both art and voices) inspired by the action movie stars of the 1980’s and 90’s. The first playable character, evealed in the video below, is an obvious nod to Arnold Schwarzenegger and his John Matrix character from the 1985 film Commando.
The second playable character will be revealed in another teaser video this Sunday and the third video will debut on March 2nd (GDC week), and will show off more of the game’s features. These videos will be available on You Tube and the official XS Force website.
Who do you think the second character will be?
Leave a comment below with your guess.
As for me, I’m gonna have to go with either Jean-Claude van Damme or Steven Seagal.
The second trailer has been released and the other playable character is none other than “John Rambo”. Duh! See the video below.
Rocket 5 was started by Tim Miller and Cathy Feraday Miller when we quit our well-paid game industry jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Toronto Canada. Now we’re not so well-paid, but we’re making games we love from our own ideas, on our own terms and at our own pace. We currently have 4 games on the App Store: Giant Moto, Small Space, Holeshot Drag Racing and iSpoof Walken.
