Octopede is a fast-paced 2D survival shooter for PC and Xbox 360. Take control of a computer worm inside a hostile mainframe. Your mission - to gather as much data as possible before the host’s defences get the better of you!
In Octopede, you play as a lone computer program in the desperate search for more megabytes. With more ‘data’ eaten, the system becomes increasingly more aware of your presence, sending out enemies and obstacles to try and eradicate you. Equipped with a large array of weaponry ‘the worm’ must blast its way through hordes of deadly virus, bugs and glitches to collect the data rich discs.
Eat green data to increase both your score and your strength. Each time you eat some data, your tail length increases. Tail pieces serve as both health and ammo – both very important in the hostile system.
Protect your head! Your tail is invulnerable to damage and can be used as a shield. Watch out for deadly enemies and imposing firewall systems, one strike and you’ll lose 4 un-cached tail pieces, and when you get hit with no tail pieces, it’s game over.The key to Octopede is building that multiplier, destroying your enemies and keeping a keen eye on what is going on around you.
Only those that can show heroic dedication and true skill can then go on to unlock the core!
