Pangea Arcade debuts
Pangea today announced development of its next game title: Pangea Arcade is a collection of three exciting games: “Nucleus”, “Warheads”, and “Firefall”. All three are action-arcade games based on classic arcade themes, but have been completely modernized and loaded with visual eye candy, according to the company. Nucleus is a space-based game where your goal is to build atoms by collecting electrons and attaching them to the interstellar nuclei. Accomplishing this task involves navigating around space debris, comet fields, black holes, etc. Warheads is a game where your mission is to protect your nuclear reactors and power stations from incoming missile bombardments. Firefall is a more abstract arcade game where you shoot through barriers and falling objects to take out the advancing worms. All three games in Pangea Arcade have an option to be viewed in stereo 3D using red-cyan anaglyph glasses. Pangea Software first used this 3D viewing technique in Nanosaur 2, and then in updated versions of Bugdom 2 and Otto Matic. The company expects to ship Pangea Arcade this fall for $20 and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9, a 1GHz G4-based Mac, and 64MB of video RAM.
