Story-driven beat ‘em up game with funky 80s inspired graphics, fights its way to Google Play and the Barnes and Noble store.
London, UK – 22nd August – Marmalade Publishing today announced the launch of a simple yet compelling kung fu game from the quirky developer Lady Shotgun. The game is available now on Google Play and the Barnes and Noble store.
The player must master the most sacred kung fu move… The Buddha Finger! At the start of the game, Shifu, a kung fu master, reveals that the player has a long lost twin brother- an Interpol agent who has mysteriously disappeared after tracking down a notorious criminal, “The Man”. The agent must be found. As his exact opposite in the game, the player must fulfil their destiny using the mighty Buddha Finger.
The game is segmented into different stages of the player’s journey on the path to mastering the Buddha Finger and rescuing their twin brother. In the early stages, new skills are taught one by one to attack opponents’ pressure points. The player builds their repertoire of skills – touch, tap, swipe, spin and multiple touch which require different rapid finger movements. These sequenced movements are determined by a numbered system of pressure points placed on the body of a full screen sized enemy.
Buddha Finger is a simple concept which is easy to grasp and challenges player’s skills whilst engaging them as the story unfolds. This delicate balance is maintained throughout the game’s 62 levels with a rich scoring system and regular plot line updates.
Challenge your reflexes and become a great kung fu warrior with Buddha Finger!
* Fast, fun, pick up and play action
* Leader boards to show off your skills
* Action packed comedy storyline over 61 levels.
