Description

Like pixels? How about randomly generated weapons? What about crazy monsters trying to rip you to shreds? Welcome to (The United States of) Nightmerica. Nightmerica is a game about facing the monsters inside your head, and shooting them with a whole load of bullets. Drawing on the retro spirit of arcade games and the? Explosions? Of modern titles. Face hoardes of monsters in three different arenas, using any of the infinitely randomly generated guns, sidearms or special weapons. Show your nightmares who's boss!

History

We used to play Call of Duty zombies together a lot, something other indie developers might consider quite shameful. Obviously, we couldn't care less. Anyway, we thought it would be super cool to bring that feeling of urgency and survival in a wave based scenario to iOS. Except we don't make CoD style games, we make little pixelly ones. So we thought long and hard about it, thought of some awesome things like random gun generation and a backstory and rolled with it!

  • 20+ different monsters to do battle with
  • Infinite randomly generated guns
