A tribute to the 80's arcade machines
A tribute to the 80's arcade machines
Brief story of the game
The evil Highscore Master has locked you inside the world of games for having surpassed one of his records. Our goal is very simple, go and overcome the different arcades to rescue our girlfriend and escape away from the virtual world.
Simple but direct as we liked in the 80s.
The game is a tribute to those best arcade cabinets, the cinema and pop culture of the golden age in the 80s. Each world represents one of these classic arcades with its own mechanics and a unique visual style, created from different pixel artists who have given their approach and personal touch.
What would happen if we put in a cocktail shaker Out Run, Space Harrier and Back to the Future? Or Pacman with Saturday's Night Fever? Stop imagining it because this is Highscore Master!
Highscore Master is built by about 8 different arcades from the 80's. From our own reinterpretation, as we believe they could have been improved and carrying them to a current gameplay.
- 8 different recreational scenes.
- 1 or 2 players
- Story mode or free mode.
- Each universe has been recreated by a different pixel artist.
- Chiptune music inspired by the great classics.
- Tributes to the culture of the 80s.
Highscore combines the simplicity of classic games, but updated with new mechanics to take us on an epic adventure which will transfer us to our favorite machine of the 80s on Switch, Ps4, PSVita, XboxOne, PC, Mac, Linux.
What will happen to a stimulated match in the middle of the freezer? This mix between Snow Bros and Tumblepop will give you the answer. Dodge carrots and penguins with tuxedo and capture in Yeti´s own fire cage.
If you have never played Donkey Kong or Popeye, now is the time to remedy it. Our friend Tarzan has to rescue his girlfriend from the clutches of King Kong and his faithful indigenous worshipers. Jump, collect fruit and scream loudly to scare your enemies.
Who has not had a bad day and has wanted to settle their problems with hits? Inicially we made it easy like that there was a bar or arcade salon nearby and some dropped coin. Imagine that all those wonderful classics are full of peace and love like Kung - Fu Master, Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja adds a change of lens as in Shinobi and unites a bit of the movie The Warriors. You will have our game with implanted justice.
We have been infected by nice viruses that do nothing but jump into our stomachs. Who do you gonna call? To Doctor Bacterium! This explosive mix between Pang, Doctor Mario, Aliens and Innerspace is going to highly raise your cholesterol.
It's Saturday night, you want to go out and enjoy yourself on the dance floor, but the disco bouncers are not going to make it that easy. Or maybe they have as much desire as you to have fun? This cocktail of Pacman, Snake and Saturday's Night Fever will make you sweat the shirt and your bell pants
You could not miss this one among the classics in this retro party, a real game of spacecraft. Destroy the galactic octopi and the sidereal crabs to reach the shifted evil man who wants to dominate the universe and then, destroy some galaxy. Fullest shield energy and keeping the rhythm of the shots to avoid any enemy ship escaping.
Sun, beach, an explosive co-pilot and miles and miles of road ahead. Step on the accelerator and reach the finish line mounted on your mini convertible.
Escape from the virtual universe in which the evil Highscore Master has imprisoned us, riding a flying car like the one in the Back to the future, through a world inspired by the universe of tron and the mechanics of Space Harrier.
