Nexon and developer Neople have released Evil Factory, a mobile top-down action game that combines a retro 80’s art style and an original electronic soundtrack with challenging modern arcade gameplay. Developed by the team behind Dungeon Fighter Online, Evil Factory is available now as a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices.
Evil Factory throws players straight into battles against huge 8-bit bosses. Each massive, screen-filling foe employs a challenging series of attacks that require players to react quickly and cleverly while using their arsenal of weapons and character boosts to survive. Evil Factory fuses detailed retro art and classic arcade gameplay with modern gameplay features including weapon upgrades, character progression, leaderboards and weekly events.
Watch the Evil Factory launch trailer below:
In the game, players will guide Leo, a short-tempered protagonist with a mind and mouth of his own, through an outrageous suicide mission to destroy the evil factory and its vile operators. Leo must take down monstrous weaponized animals on floor after floor of the evil factory on his journey to defeat the nefarious Kraken.
As a modern ode to classic arcade-styled games, Evil Factory features an original retro-themed synthesizer soundtrack by Jukio “Kuabee” Kallio, creator of the soundtracks for the cult hits Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne. If the art, music and intense boss battles aren’t nostalgic enough, Evil Factory harkens back to retro gaming through the miniature game cartridges which players can collect along their journey to unlock a variety of 8-bit arcade mini-games.
