Based on the core concept of the ever popular Snake, Octopede brings the 1970s arcade classic to the 21st century. Manic gameplay, shiny neon graphics and 8-bit style music and SFX make Octopede a truly intense experience.
Blast your way through hordes of deadly virus, bugs and glitches to collect the data rich discs. Traverse the system interface in 8 directions to manouver around treacherous firewalls and deadly enemies.
Eating the precious data extends Octopede's tail piece by piece. Succesfully collecting 8 tail pieces gives the player the chance to crank up their score multiplier by 'caching' their tail.
With more ‘data’ eaten, the system that you are in becomes more aware of your presence, sending out enemies and obstacles to try and eradicate you.
Survival is based on skill and makes the game more competitive and exciting.
Enemies get progressively tougher. For those tough enough to fight their way through the system, deadlier foes await you. Only those that can show true heroic dedication and true skill can then go on to face 'The Core'!
