Aqua Lungers: Story & Gameplay
The search for glory and riches never ends. For centuries, the last great treasures have been lost to the depths as shipwrecks filled the seas with sunken loot. Now, those who want to get rich must don brightly colored diving suits and go where no one else dares …

In this game of both speed and aggression, players race through challenging stages while contending with deadly creatures and dastardly opponents to collect the most treasure. While everyone’s goal is the same, each player is afforded several options to give them an edge over their competitors. Some can use their speed and agility to outpace and evade their opponents, while others might use devastating attacks to slow them down and steal their hard-earned goods!

Those looking for a solo experience (or who’d like to get some practice in before challenging Real Human Beings™) can opt for single-player mode. While essentially the same as the default game, single-player mode retains the gold-collecting mechanic while increasing the penalty for deaths in each level. This shifts the challenge from “PvP racing” to PvE survival.

 

Key Features 

  • Wreak havoc with split screen action for up to 4 players.
  • Survive 7 massive zones, 21 stages, and 7 boss levels.
  • Acquire and deploy devastating power-ups to eliminate the competition.
  • Play for keeps with support for TV, Tabletop, and Handheld modes.
  • Make your mark: Who can reach 3,000 points first?

 

Both Steam and Nintendo Switch versions are fully updated:

Content

  • New zone complete with 3 new levels and final boss stage; includes a new enemy type and boss monster.
  • New story text added to level select map to help players learn about Aqua Lungers as they progress through the game.

 

Features

  • Brand-new music for boss stages.
  • Penalty for failing stages.
  • Pressing both bumpers now cancels weapon charge.
  • Whirlwind can now push non-physics based projectiles.

 

Bug Fixes & Improvements

  • Performance improvements throughout the game.
  • Framerate now capped at 180fps when vsync is disabled.
  • Improved level victory sequence.
  • AI and animation improvements for enemy creatures.

The search for glory and riches never ends. For centuries, the last great treasures have been lost to the depths as shipwrecks filled the seas with sunken loot. Now, those who want to get rich must don brightly colored diving suits and go where no one else dares!

While essentially the same as the default game, single-player mode retains the gold-collecting mechanic while increasing the penalty for deaths in each level. This shifts the challenge from “PvP racing” to PvE survival.

Aqua Lungers began as more of an academic exercise when I was just learning how to code,”  says Diego Almazan, founder of WarpedCore Studio. “I had some other projects in mind that involved similar features to Aqua Lungers and wanted to try my hand at getting some of the basics in place. At the time, I’d been playing a lot of local multiplayer games with my wife and friends – and I felt like the world could use at least one more. I took the basic movement mechanic I designed, added split screen gold collection – and BOOM! Aqua Lungers was born.”

 

Key Features 

  • Wreak havoc with split screen action for up to 4 players.
