Charlestown, IN –September 28th, 2020 – Independent studio Mommy’s Best Games announces HD remastered versions of its classic action games starting with “Shoot 1UP DX”.
That’s right! The retro-like shmup “Shoot 1UP DX” is coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 15th, 2020.
Shoot 1UP DX is an award-winning twist on the shmup formula: instead of hoarding each 1UP, you now may play all your ships at the same time. Starting with three ships, players can continue to build an armada of fighters, and deftly blast their way through 8 wild levels of alien forces.
“I’m very proud of the innovation the original Shoot 1UP brought to shoot-em up genre, and excited to re-release a Deluxe Version to modern consoles”, says Nathan Fouts lead designer and co-owner, of Mommy’s Best Games.
“We’ve added two new levels, new bosses, and many more weird enemies, ensuring that even veteran players are in for plenty of surprises.”
