Electronics Arts has released a developer walkthrough video for upcoming XBLA action adventure Spare Parts
For those of you who cannot view the video, here's a description of what it features:
...members of the EA Bright Light team discuss various elements of Spare Parts in depth, including level design, inspirations for the unique art style, co-op gameplay and upgradeable Action Parts
The video also includes snippets of actual gameplay.
Since Spare Parts
is scheduled for release next month, its only fair that we provide details of the storyline and gameplay which gamers can expect:
The game tells the story of courageous robots Mar-T and Chip, who find themselves dumped out with the trash on a strange planet. Working together in co-op mode (either local or online), the mechanical duo must find a way to repair an abandoned space ship and escape the planet before evil Lord Krung can dispatch his henchmen to destroy them. Mar-T and Chip will also collect upgradable action parts – such as Rocket Boots - to unlock new abilities to aid them as they battle countless enemies including the relentless Krofax troopers, hostile spider monkeys and more
Although the description emphasises co-op gameplay, there is a single-player story for gamers to play. However, as highlighted in the video, players will eventually have to team up, in order to discover certain areas on various levels and unlock some of the achievements.
