BOUNTY HUNTER SPACE LIZARD: A ROGUELIKE-ALIKE WITH A POINT OF VIEW
“A BIZARRE ROGUELIKE” WITH “SERIOUS CHOPS WHEN IT COMES TO GAMEPLAY” -TouchArcade
October 8, 2019 – Phoenix, Arizona – Stay Inside Games, LLC has announced its new game, Bounty Hunter Space Lizard, for Android and iOS.
You are a lizardperson, despondent. You alienated your friends and family trying to sell Cutcorp Knives through an MLM, your human lover left you to become a veterinarian, and your trip to discover yourself has left you stranded in orbit around a culturally conservative desert planet with few lizardpeople, a poor interwebs connection, and little variety in cuisine. The only way forward? You must play the most dangerous game.
BHSL won’t be mistaken for anything but itself. It scratches the same itch as turn-based, small-map tactics games like Hoplite, but its mechanics draw on roguelikes, classic arcade games, and Bomberman. Players guide the lizard through twenty levels over four stages. Basic play involves slashing, shooting, changing the terrain with bombs, wrapping through the sides of the screen, collecting haste orbs, and building the lizard’s stats and abilities with two skill paths. The controls are tight, and there is enough strategic depth to keep the game interesting for a long time. Although the lizard’s journey has a story and ending, it will take most players quite a few tries to reach that ending. The game’s save system allows it to be put down and then continued at any point, and it’s free with a single IAP to remove ads.
Stay Inside Games is a new indie studio comprised of Nick Podsiadlik and Amy Manning. Nick is a public defender turned programmer, and Amy is a painter and ceramic artist who’s taken on game art as a new challenge.
