'Trapt' (PS2) Breaks Free In Stores

Tecmo announced today that its PS2 exclusive strategy action game Trapt has shipped to stores nationwide. As Allura, a princess framed for her father’s murder, the player sets deadly and torturous traps to bring Allura’s attackers to their mangled deaths.

“Hailed as one of the more unique and interesting games of this holiday season, TRAPT offers an unparalleled combination of puzzle-solving, action, strategy and horror,” said Andrea Frechette, marketing manager at Tecmo Inc. “Constantly unlocking new and more devastating traps, this one of a kind experience is a game you just don’t want to stop playing.”

Equal parts action and strategy, TRAPT features a unique system that lets players set a variety of traps throughout each level to create intense combinations that burn, maim, skewer, electrocute, fling, confuse, pulverize and eventually obliterate Princess Allura’s attackers. Framed for her father’s murder, Allura runs from avengers to discover she has been cursed by the devil with the ability to set a growing arsenal of deadly traps with which to defend herself. Players unlock hidden areas and more gruesome traps as they progress throughout the game, creating a nearly endless combination of traps that makes each player’s experience unique. In addition to room-specific environmental traps and Allura’s own stockpile of handheld traps, some rooms are host to complex, over-the-top Dark Illusions that, once unleashed, wreak havoc on Allura’s enemies with unparalleled style and exacting cruelty.

Choices made in TRAPT ’s main Story Mode and optional side story missions lead to multiple endings. Players will need to unlock and master Allura’s most devastating handheld traps to withstand the game’s Survival Mode.

TRAPT is available exclusively for the PS2 for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and is rated “M” (“Mature” – Blood, Violence – content suitable for persons ages 17 and older).
