Andro Dunos II

Also know as: Andro Dunos 2

The sequel to the famous shoot’em up from Visco studio is coming to PixelHeart. It’s time to bring out your good old spaceship fighter in ANDRO DUNOS 2. Once upon a time… Andro Dunos (アンドロデュノス, in japanese) is a side scrolling arcade game from shoot’em up category (Shmup). Developed by Visco and Distributed in 1992 by SNK ON Neo-Geo MVS and Neo-Geo AES. Licensed by PixelHeart since 2020. Some 28 years have passed since the Earth Defence deployed Yellow Cherry and Red Fox to stop the imminent invasion from an unknown alien race. 52 light years away on the edge of our galaxy the threat has reared its ugly head again and this time they mean business. There’s just one thing to do, dust off the finest Earth Defence ships ever made and send the alien scum packing. It’s apparent that these relics from a war time that was forgotten had seen better days and only one ship the Yellow Cherry could be saved using parts from Red Fox which was critically damaged in the war of the past. Are you up for the task of saving the earth? In this pure homage to the classic 90’s Arcade shoot em up you take control of one of the most technologically advanced space ships ever made with 4 weapon sets which can be changed depending on what situation you are in between them taking out enemies from all angles. Weapons can be upgraded by collecting pickups or in the end level upgrade screen up to a maximum of 7. You also can take advantage of Missile and Shield pickups which can also be powered up to level 7. Each weapon builds up a charge when firing which unlocks the Hyper Shot which delivers a devastating blast to whatever gets in its way…but be warned it also leaves your weapon weak and your ship vulnerable until charged back up again. Starting on earth battle your way through 7 stages powering your weapons up until you reach the edge of the galaxy and the secret base from where all enemy waves are being orchestrated from. You will need to use everything you have learned on the journey about your weapon sets to take out the final boss and restore peace to Earth once more.
