The idea behind MonkeyPaw Games is to bridge East and West. We believe each hemisphere deserves each other's games. And many great titles have not seen a foreign shore. So we took up the mantle to find, recreate and publish titles that need such treatment. We’ve petitioned your requests for Japanese games and have brought you 14 classic retro imports on the PlayStation Network Store. More to come!
Now we’re about to try something different. We reviewed the way retro gaming has been presented in recent years on the digital download platforms. Some games have been graphically retouched and look impressive. But a true classic deserves a complete reinvention in order to rekindle the magic that made it special.
Our first foray into evolving retro is BurgerTime HD. This culinary classic arcade screamed out for revival. We’ve kept the burger-making mechanic but placed the action into a Rotary Environmental System, allowing cylindrical 3D levels to rotate around a center axis and the player to build burgers around the circumference.
The 40 complex levels allow a harrowing haul through burgerdom spiced up by four hairy bosses. Four-player local and online play adds an intense competitive element. And chat, avatars, leaderboards, trophies and downloadable content will make this game a classic, once again!
With this expanded canvas, creative platform mechanics and a bevy of new characters, it is hard to call the game retro. It is more akin to an extension of the original vision, an evolution. We plan to release BurgerTime HD early this summer so be on the lookout for more news at www.BurgerTimeHD.com.
