Pang Adventures for PS4, AND and etc. is an arcade game which is the newest instalment of the popular Pang series, known in Japan as Pomping World and in the USA as Buster Bros. The series was born in 1989 on arcade machines. The new part was developed by DotEmu specialising in refreshing classic hits, like Heroes of Might and Magic III, Another World, Raiden, Little Big Adventure, and the Metal Slug series.
During gameplay you follow another adventures of two Pang brothers, who fight the invasion of aliens threatening the Earth. Since the last raid that was stopped by the two brave heroes, Aliens took their time and improved their technology. In the outcome, the newest version features loads of new challenges. The simple plot serves just as a pretext for actual gameplay.
General principles of gameplay practically have not changed throughout years. Traditionally, the player’s objective is to destroy balls jumping through levels. The problem is that they are not passive and can attack the protagonists and sometimes hide behind different obstacles. To eliminate them efficiently, you can use a wide range of weapons, e.g. machine guns, flamethrowers, lasers, shurikens, etc. There are +100 various levels set in different locations, like the Arctic, Scotland, the Death Valley, and Bora Bora isles. For the first time in the series, this title introduces difficult boss fights at the end of each chapter.
Pang Adventures offers three different game modes: Tour Mode (the classic single player campaign), Score Attack (survival, in which you have only three lives), and Panic Mode (you have to finish 99 difficult levels with no pauses). The game published on PC and PlayStation 4/Xbox One consoles offers cooperation for two players, both local and Internet.
Available on PS4, AND and etc. Pang Adventures features characteristic for the series, relatively simple visuals which, even though utilise HD graphics and a whole palette of impressive special effects, successfully maintain the spirit of the productions from the past.
