Calling all heroes; we’re going to need some BIG battle machines!
Bournemouth, UK (17th December 2013) – Today, Amuzo are proud to announce that their latest title, LEGO® Hero Factory Invasion From Below, will launch on iOS, Android and Windows 8, as well as web platforms, in Europe early January 2014.
Work on a construction site within the heart of Antropolis City has come to an abrupt halt as a deadly new threat has accidentally been uncovered. Suddenly a swarm of beasts invade the city from below causing chaos, their motives are unknown and their intelligence is brutal.
To save the city from swarms of menacing minions and their five gigantic, evil boss beasts the experienced champions of the Hero Factory must combine forces and create new powerful Battle Machines to once again save the galaxy. Their quest will take them through Antropolis city and down to an underground world of crystal caves, acid pits and magnetic chambers. Can Rocka, Furno, Evo, Bulk, Breez, Surge and Stormer once again save the day or have the Heroes met their match?
Where a single encounter could mean game over, timing is everything as players must dodge, jump, squish and blast scuttling enemies whilst collecting vital components in order to build one of nine mighty Battle Machines. Leaping into the cockpit, as Hero and Machine become one, players must then stomp, swipe, smash and blast their way to victory.
“We’ve really worked on creating a sense of scale with each encounter” said Head of Production at Amuzo Adrian Smith. “From initially feeling vulnerable in a tight area when jumping from platform to platform in search of machine parts as beasts attack, there are plenty of power-ups and perks to boost weapons and abilities so players should then feel bold and brave when entering the wider boss arenas, and each level is packed with frantic fun. We’re also thrilled to include action packed video content, revealing the story as you play the game.”
Having garnered over 50 million worldwide play sessions with their 2013 hit LEGO Hero Factory Brain Attack, Amuzo’s latest title for players of all ages, will see the stars of the Hero Factory once again rallying together to defend the galaxy.
The battle against the invasion from below is just beginning!
