Having recently reached out to developer Legendo and received the good news that Dracula Twins should be hitting Apple TV soon, I thought I’d do the same with studio 10tons.
10tons already have a presence on Apple TV, but after their press release in 2015 talking up the platform, I thought I’d follow up to see what else is on the way, and in particular, the twin-stick shooter Neon Chrome, currently out on iOS, Steam, and current-gen consoles.
“…we’re not sure if we’ll be able to bring Neon Chrome to the platform. Mainly the issue is about controls, pretty hard to do twin stick shooter with the Siri remote, and we’d strongly prefer not to make the game require a gamepad…” was the not so encouraging reply from 10tons. It isn’t an outright no though, with the studio adding, “…now that we’re back from holidays, we will resume investigating the matter.”
So there may still be hope for Neon Chrome on Apple TV. There’ll be an update here on ATVG if I hear more.
The good news however, was that its vertical shooter – Xenoraid – currently available on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One, “…should make it to Apple TV though.”
The mission-based vertical shooter looks like a nice fit for the platform, with the ability to switch out your ship to one with differing abilities mid-mission adding a nice tactical element to the arcade action.
Check out the trailer below, and keep an eye on ATVG for more details as soon as they come to hand.
