AGO Games are excited to announce that The Asskickers are taking their video game fight to PC and MACs immediately. Not only is the game available now for digital download at //www.the-asskickers.com for $8.99 US, but players can also access a free demo of the game beginning Thursday, July 21, 2011.
Filled with fiery fists of fury and intense street fighting action, The Asskickers is 2D co-op and single player ode to classic beat’em up titles such as Street of Rage, Kung-Fu Master and Double Dragon. It also serves as political commentary for today’s financial crisis where the rich get away with massive financial fraud and the poor pay dearly for the rich’s mistakes and possess no recourse for justice.
In The Asskickers, players must choose between playing as the lightening quick and thunderously deadly Diane, the unstoppable mountain of muscle Marcus, or the well-balanced fighting machine Alex. Forced into an almost unwinnable fight to clear their names, three unlikely Asskickers jump fist first into dramatic knock-down, drag out battles. These three ass-kicking stalwarts find themselves thrown into a battle with a corrupt ruling class where winning and kicking ass are the only available options
“The Asskickers offers a radical experience that only indie gaming can offer. As our first game, we wanted to create a wild retro-modern ride from the penny arcades of innocence to the corporate towers of greed,” said Stanislas Berton, president of AGO Games. “The Asskickers delivers a solid no-frills, hardcore, butt-kicking, beat’em-up video game experience similar to what people would find at a 1980s version of a penny arcade but with a modern aesthetic. The Asskickers allows people enact a revenge fantasy on all the people and corporations who continue to bring countries to the very edge of financial ruin and get away with it! Now, it’s virtual payback time! Let’s kick some ass.”
The Asskickers offers players the choice between two adventure filled co-op and single player modes, “Story” mode and “Survival” where players battle wave after wave of attackers. “Time Attack” is a single player only third offering that challenges players to beat their own personally best ass-kicking times. Filled with unlockable achievements, multiple combos to master and four levels of difficulty, The Asskickers take hardened street fighters from the seedy back alleys of town all the way up to the pristine glass walled floors of evil corporations.
In addition to the full game, which is available now at //www.the-asskickers.com, brawlers wanting to kick-ass without having to chew bubblegum can test out The Asskickers game via the free demo that is now available. The demo allows fans to cut their teeth on the first level of the game in “Story” mode and one level in “Survival” mode as well as experience the frenzied rush of “Time Attack.”
Whether your fighting style is more float like a butterfly than deftly stinging like an angry bee or vice versa, now is the time for gamers to bring the fight to corruption’s front door. So if the corrupt oppose you, and if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The Asskickers.
