A new old-school style game is available on Amazon.com and five other stores as of this week; it's also up as a submission for release on Steam.

A new game called 16 Bit Arena is now available on six stores-- Amazon.com, GreenManGaming.com, Desura.com, ShinyLoot.com, IndieCity.com, and IndieVania.com-- and has been submitted to Steam through its Greenlight process as well.

The game's features are described as:

  • Fighting in turn-based multiplayer battles up to 9v9, with old-school graphics that many may nostalgically remember from 90's-era Super Nintendo games
  • Entering battle as a Warrior, Mage, Rogue, or Healer of either gender, and using a card to transform into any of 16 characters, adding their stats and abilities
  • Elemental properties for every character-- collecting gems allows the player to choose theirs, and cast its magic
  • Gaining Charge during battle allows for more damage, boosting specific stats, and more; it's also possible to save turns for later and use them all at once
  • A high-energy soundtrack featuring real guitar
  • Player can journey through eight intense Trials to gain cards and gems for use in the Arena
  • An additional included game, the 2-player tactical-RPG-style Card Game, allows players to earn cards and gems as well
  • Site includes a webcomic, updated weekly, featuring the eight Paladins from the game

With features like strategizing in large battles to the tune of real guitar accompanying retro graphics, this promises to be a very one-of-a-kind and just plain fun game. The game's trailer, store listing, how-to-play info and screenshots may be seen at the 16bitarena.com website.
