If there is one developer that you can always count on making an entertaining game, it’s Twisted Pixel. Since releasing The Maw the Texas-based studio has been on a roll with creating memorable and hilarious titles like ‘Splosion Man, Comic Jumper, and The Gunstringer. This year their latest game LocoCycle is out to top them all with the most genre-mashing game in the lineup.
During the demonstration the spy bike known as I.R.I.S. is evading and taking down any enemy force that gets in her way. Caught on the back wheel of I.R.I.S. is Pablo, a poor sap who is screaming for his life in Spanish, hoping that the bike can understand him. Unfortunately, due to the bolt of lightning that short-circuited her language frame, I.R.I.S. thinks he’s spouting out movie-styled catchphrases and enjoying the ride as he goes along.
The gameplay in LocoCycle is varied in the craziest way imaginable. One second you are evading enemy fire while shooting back, and the next you are battling jetpack agents with I.R.I.S.’s kung-fu moves. (You read that right: the motorcycle knows kung-fu!) In a blink of an eye you are taking on other bikers, with Pablo trying to sabotage them in special quicktime events. The homages to past video games come at rapid fire, ranging from SpyHunter to Road Rash. LocoCycle is one bike game that literally has something for every gamer to enjoy.
LocoCycle is due to be released sometime later this year, according to Twisted Pixel’s Jay Stuckwisch. Plans are also on the way for Twisted Pixel’s first title on the next-gen Xbox, although information on that is still currently both tight-lipped and in the planning stages.
