Domestic personal circle Nerota announced on March 11, “ Return ACE ” to start delivery on March 26. The corresponding platform is PC (Steam). In Steam and Itch.io, the trial version containing 2 stages can be downloaded.
“Return ACE” is a special vertical scroll 2D shooting game that receives and utilizes an enemy bullet. In this work, the player operates itself and fights against the enemy aircraft that appears on the screen. While destroying enemies with energy bullets, avoid the barrage of the enemy. It aims for the stage capture. However, since there is no energy for its own machine at the start of the game, it can not be attacked. Therefore, in this work, the enemy’s energy bullet is converted to energy of its own machine using the function “ABSORB” mounted on the aircraft. We will use enemy attacks to expand the battle.
As a special ability of your own machine, “Hacking” and “Rolling” to be invincible to the enemy aircraft in addition to “ABSORB” and become an invincible to the physical attack. Both actions, including shots, are the basis of the fight in “ABSORB”.
On the other hand, if the enemy bullet is converted too much with “ABSORB”, the own machine causes an overheat beyond the allowable energy of energy. “ABSORB” is also equipped with the ability to register the enemy’s bullets that absorbed when energy is 0%, and to change the shot of the own machine, and energy management will also be important.
Besides, the story is equipped with a four-step difficulty level with different stories and BGM. As the game mode, in addition to normal StoryMode, it is prepared by Randomstage that you need luck and BOSSRUSH fighting endless. A capable title system has also been introduced, and the ability of your own machine can be enhanced by meeting the conditions and clearing the game. The title may be obtained by destroying the general enemy of 80% or more, hacking more than 20 machines, or destroy the boss with rolling.
