Jet Lancer brings its aerial combat and agile movement to PC and Switch today

From Press Release:

12 MAY 2020 – Developers Vladimir Fedyushkin and Nicolai Danielsen of development studio Code Wakers, alongside publisher Armor Games Studios, are happy to announce the launch of Jet Lancer – a heady combination of fast-paced pixel-perfect arcade dog-fighting and detailed fighter jet customisation, out today on Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac.

Accompanying the launch is a vibrant new trailer capturing Jet Lancer’s stylish aerial combat, frantic pacing and unique arcade art style reminiscent of classic titles.

In the bombastic bullet hell shooter, players will hunt enemy pilots, carve up giant robots, and defy death at supersonic speeds. Jet Lancer lets players tinker with an upgrades system that encourages learning, experimentation, and tactical decision-making – challenging pilots to find the right loadout for each encounter.

Designed from the ground up to be an experience that is both challenging and fair, Jet Lancer features a suite of accessibility options to ensure that pilots of any ability can enjoy the game. The options include damage modifiers, anti-fatigue control toggles, and visual adjustments including screen shake and screen-flash reduction.

Jet Lancer comes locked and loaded with a fully-featured story-driven single-player campaign, which sees players dominating the skies with tight and responsive controls.

Nicolai Danielsen, Programmer at Code Wakers, says: “Jet Lancer has been an amazing learning experience for me, and with the help of many incredibly talented people, we are finally ready for launch. I can’t wait to see how it lands with everyone.”

Vladimir Fedyushkin, Game Designer at Code Wakers, adds: “A lot of things happen during 5 years of development, and being able to work on Jet Lancer kept me going through some difficult times. There is a significant part of me woven into this game, and I’m extremely grateful I am able to share it.”

Sean McKenzie, Director of Publishing at Armor Games Studios, adds: “Jet Lancer checks a lot of nostalgic boxes without sacrificing modern-era design, a feat we truly admire. Vladimir and Nicolai have made something we’re as proud to be connected to as we are excited to play.”

Jet Lancer launches on both Nintendo Switch and PC & Mac via Steam, GOG, Humble Store and itch.io today, May 12th, priced at $14.99 / £13.49 / €14.99.
