Retro Action Platformer Steel Assault Drops Today on Nintendo Switch & Steam

By Joel | September 28, 2021

Side-scrolling-enthusiast developer Zenovia Interactive and the pixel art aficionados at publisher Tribute Games have joined forces to launch Steel Assault: a classic 2D action platformer delivering a solid throwback arcade experience in all the right ways. Steel Assault is available today on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop and PC via Steam at the explosive price of $14.99 (with a special 10% launch discount for a limited time).

You are Taro Takahashi, a resistance soldier on a revenge mission against the dictator who lords over the ashes. You’ll punch enemies and zipline your way out of danger in a post-apocalyptic America beautifully rendered in 16-bit-style graphics.

KEY FEATURES

  • TRUE ARCADE EXPERIENCE: A classic gaming throwback for both the old school and newer generations. Regardless of skill, there’s a difficulty mode for everyone. Arcade mode is the ultimate Steel Assault experience -- a “1 coin clear” mode for the hardcore and speedrunners.
  • 4:3 ASPECT RATIO/CRT FILTERS: Zenovia Interactive founder Sri Kankanahalli designed Steel Assault with the traditional 4:3 aspect ratio to keep the action quick and surprising... just like it was back in the day. Steel Assault’s many filters and video options are adjustable to accommodate a range of gaming setups.
  • EXPLOSIVE  SOUNDTRACK: A superb, fast-paced and aggressive soundtrack that adds a layer of pressure and anxiety to the experience. Beautiful FM-synthesized tunes with just enough industrial rock and chiptune to please bit-crunched music fans.

Tribute Games is the developer and publisher of beloved pixel games Panzer Paladin, Mercenary Kings, and Flinthook. The studio is developing the highly anticipated official TMNT beat-em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The signing of Steel Assault in November 2020 marked Tribute Games' debut as a publishing partner for other developers.
