'Earth Atlantis' (ALL) Gets Patched On Switch To Make It More 'Comfortable'

by Rainier on Oct. 30, 2017 @ 8:00 a.m. PDT

Earth Atlantis is a retro shooter with a unique “old sketching” visual style.

"The Great Climate Shift" struck at end of the 21st century. Ninety-six percent of the earth’s surface is underwater. Human civilization has fallen. Machines have adopted the shape and form of marine animals.

The ocean is full of creature-machine hybrid monsters. You are a “Hunter” and the new journey begins…

The new action-filled title for Nintendo Switch is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a climate shift has struck the earth and marked civilization’s downfall. With most of the land now being completely flooded, life is only possible beneath the ocean.

Mankind's main capitals are destroyed and lay at the bottom of the sea as ruins of steel and stone. The machines have found their place in this new environment and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machines.

Headup Games and Pixel Perfex have release the first patch for their recent post-apocalyptic underwater shooter Earth Atlantis. It tackles some general points of criticism, making the game much more comfortable and also easier in some ways; especially after dying.

All fixes at a glance:

  • Drop the sub-weapon that you had equipped before you got defeated right at your restart point 
  • Item boxes spawn much closer to the restart point and player's location
  • Increased drop rates of items and sub-weapons
  • Increased the player's ship speed
  • Reduced the difficulty of some boss monsters, especially on Easy Mode
  • Minor bugs fixed
  • A new game icon

You see, Pixel Perfex listened to your feedback and made Earth Atlantis more enjoyable in many respects. If you own the game already, it actually should be updated automatically to version 1.0.1. If it won't do that you will find an update option in the game's settings.

Earth Atlantis features the style of old sketches, reminiscing a time, where sea exploration commenced and the sea was believed to be inhabited by fantastic as well as dangerous creatures. Now, once again, the world has to be discovered. Board one of four individual submarines, each with different advantages and weaponry. Hunt down huge bosses in an intense retro style side-scrolling shooter. Rediscover humankind's sunken world.

Dive now into the new ancient world of Earth Atlantis.
