Developer Manufacture 43 has released a new trailer for its intense, challenging and fast-paced shooter Pawarumi.
Pawarumi, best described as Rock-Paper-Scissors with lasers, is a shoot'em up set in a futuristic, yet pre-Columbian, inspired universe. The sense of accomplishment in reaching the best ending for the game is just a fraction of what is presented, all of which is set in a 3D world with stunning music and sound to heighten the atmospherics.
The player has only one life in the game, and your shield will reduce strength by a third every time you are hit. Pawarumi features a powerful mechanic called the Trinity. The three basic weapons are controlled by coloured divinities - Condor (laser) is blue, Serpent (Gatling gun) is green and Jaguar (missiles) is red. Enemies you face are powered by the same divinities, and by targeting with the same as them, or different colour, you trigger one of the three bonuses of the Trinity - Boost, Drain or Crush. But be warned, there are both positive and negative consequences.
Shooting with a weapon of a different colour than the enemy will either Drain or Crush. Drain transform enemies’ pain into energy that charges Super Attack. Crush multiplies the damage you deal to enemies by a factor of 1.5.
Pawarumi is releasing on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on the 24th of July.
