'John Mambo' (ALL) Announced, Launches Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign - Screens & Trailer

Inspired by action films from the 80s and 90s, John Mambo is an isometric arcade game in which you play a one-man army on a mission… to pacify the world.

John Mambo is a top scrolling shooter based on the era of the arcade machines and consoles of the 80’s and 90’s, inspired by 8-bit and 16-bit retro classics like Ikari Warriors, Commando, Metal Slug and Cannon Fodder.

John is an allied army soldier who is only asked to act when he is the last option. Crude and brave he never refuses to enter combat even though he never hasn’t been invited. A one man-army who fights alone… Mostly because nobody trust on him.

Play as a single player or with a friend in the co-op multiplayer mode as you prepare yourself for some gung ho action, firing bullets and throwing grenades, as you try not to get yourself blown up in the process!

Spanish indie developer Iction Games have launched an Indiegogo campaign, looking for an initial target of €15,000 to fund development of John Mambo.
