Do you have what it takes to defeat Septipus?
Septipus: Tentacle Apocalypse is a story based arcade style indie game, taking place inside the lair of Septipus, an effeminate seven legged squid whose quest for a moustache leads him to ransack the nearby town of Follicles. Thirsty for revenge, the heroine Smiley, an emoticon on steroids and citizen of Follicles, goes searching for the fiend, but soon finds he is trapped inside the cave of the villain. Assisting him is Bumper, his Obi-wan-Kanobiesque companion. Together, they must successfully navigate their way down into the heart of the cavern, avoiding enemies and obstacles, and hoping to defeat Septipus in order to gain their freedom and take back what was stolen from Follicles.
There are 27 levels, not including the boss battle, which divide into 4 levels of difficulty. The player will be challenged as daylight becomes increasingly scarce and eventually only few inches around the perimeter of the characters is visible. With enemies lurking in the shadows and spikes waiting to impale you, the player will need to develop technique early on and make careful decisions as to which direction they will tread.
After 27 levels of tense navigation and difficult decision making, the player at last meets Septipus in an epic battle to the death! Vengeance can finally be yours as you’re introduced to seven increasingly powerful attacks, which you will use to unleash hell on the cephalopod. Careful now, Septipus won’t go down without a fight. Lunging with his tentacles and launching toxic ink bullets will make killing the villain no easy task.
One of the features that really make Septipus: Tentacle Apocalypse memorable is the art and the music. With a truly epic score, and eye catching visuals, Septipus: Tentacle Apocalypse blends a modern game feel with an arcade style game making a unique and stimulating game experience.
