Blasting off next month
Atari is pleased to announce today that Caverns of Mars: Recharged, the latest entry in the Atari Recharged series, blasts straight through enemy fire and onto Switch March 9, 2023. To celebrate the news, Atari has revealed a new gameplay trailer showing off the game’s slick visuals, carefully crafted levels, and all of the possibilities that await within the game’s fully destructible environments.
Based on the classic vertical-scrolling shooter, Caverns of Mars: Recharged retains its retro charm and once again sees players descend through the destructible subterranean landscape of Mars where enemies are plentiful and ammo is limited.
In Caverns of Mars: Recharged, players progress through 30 unique missions set within three primary “depths” of Mars, descending deeper and deeper into enemy territory. Blast through oncoming hostile fire, bull through debris and obstructions, and dodge other obstacles all while keeping a close eye on fuel and ammo reserves. Featuring a unique local co-op mode, players can team up with one partner assigned to navigation while the other player shoots the drone!
Keeping in tune with the rest of the Atari Recharged series, Caverns of Mars: Recharged includes a global leaderboard where players can compete for points or speed, as well as an original soundtrack from award-winning artists and composer Megan McDuffee.
