Capsized‘s robust in-game currency system allows players to make purchases and upgrades to weapons, skills, health and accessories.
“Utilizing Unity, we have worked hard to bring Alientrap’s fast-paced 2D platformer to life on tablet devices,” says Robert Cassidy, indiePub’s director of development. “Capsized will appeal to everyone looking for an engaging action-shooter experience. We paid a lot of attention to make certain this was not just a simple port from PC to tablet but, instead, re-designed and optimized the gameplay and controls for touch-based devices, making Capsized both unforgettable and addictive.”
