'Doughlings: Arcade' (ALL) Comes To PS4 Next Month

by Rainier on April 30, 2019 @ 3:10 a.m. PDT

Doughlings brings unique gameplay mechanics through its interesting characters and the world while combining together the best that all known Arkanoid games have to offer, polished with a modern look and design.

Doughlings: Arcade combines the timeless fun of brick breaker mechanics and a nostalgic art style with a fresh take on power-ups, character evolution, level design, and humorous narration.

Rather than resting easy with a tested classic, Hero Concept has added new layers of clever play and game mechanics. Playing as Morpheus you are tasked with healing as many of your fellow Doughlings as possible in each level. The traditional power-up is revamped and instead, Doughlings offers the Show Off which when earned provides an effective and entertaining trait to use in each level.

Character evolution comes into play in a clever way with Doughlings in the form of unlocking additional personas. Personas are activated by DNA in a level and are limited time power-ups with special abilities. Each persona comes with its own unique Show Off trait providing alternate gameplay that results in creative strategies and humorous animations.

Doughlings is jam-packed with 90 levels with varying degrees of difficulty and gameplay that provides even the most seasoned brick breaker with a challenge. An additional layer of progression is present with Morpheus and his 6 alternate personas by collecting elixirs to activate even more powerful abilities.

If 90 levels aren't enough, Doughlings also offers its own level creation engine. Players can design and share their custom-made levels, offering endless amounts of play time and challenges.

To put the icing on the cake, Doughlings is topped off with a comically narrated story that isn't afraid to tell it like it is!

Key Features:

  • Classic breakout gameplay with new mechanics.
  • 6 different characters with unique superpowers.
  • Special abilities to unlock for each character to help you along your journey.
  • 90 levels to play and challenge your skills.
  • Lots of different targets to face and destroy.
  • Create your own levels with the level editor.

Doughlings: Arcade is currently available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC (Steam), coming to PS4 on May 9, 2019.
