Description

Frankie's Revenge is a 1-4 player co-op action game with badass robots built from household appliances. Players use chainsaws, disco balls, tennis ball launchers and even a time-bending clock to save their world of machines and kick alien robot ass. Team up with friends or allies and fight your way through hordes of alien-controlled robots that have taken over Frankie's world of machines. Work together and you'll become the ultimate gear crunching machine.

History

Originally a Ludum Dare game jam prototype, Frankie's Revenge is a labor of love that morhped like a hideous mutant dozens of times throughout its development. Its full, monstrous ambition is to make an accessible twin-stick action game that's also very appealing for fans of the genre.

Features

  • Make your own Frankie out of discarded houseold items, all with unique abilities.
  • Team up with friends (up to 4 players) and work together to defeat the evil aliens.
  • Challenging combat will have you scrambling for the right movement and strategies.
  • Scheme and plot revenge in The Hideout, which you can kit out to your own liking.
  • Play local, online or any combination. Time to get revenge!
