The Fabled Atari Prototype from Yesteryear Becomes a Dazzling Mix of Colors and Shapes, and Rocks a Killer Soundtrack
Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — are thrilled to announce today the launch of Akka Arrh onto PC via Steam, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One & Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Atari VCS. From legendary designer Jeff Minter, Akka Arrh, once believed only to be a rumored prototype, delivers a rhythmically flowing, fast-paced arcade experience directly out of the 80s, wholly revamped for modern hardware.
A mesmerizingly chaotic tube shooter boasting a psychedelic visual explosion of color, Akka Arrh embodies the neon style and “just one more round” mentality of the arcade era perfectly. Blast through swaths of enemy waves while manning the titular akka arrh, a suped-up cannon just begging to be unleashed, and experience not just one of Atari’s rarest games, but one of the rarest games of all time!Key Features of Akka Arrh:
- A Whirlwind of Electrifying Color: From the mind of Jeff Minter, players will experience a cascade of words, color, shapes and sound flows as they mount the akka arrh and fend off attackers
- Ready, Aim, Fire!: Akka Arrh shares the name with the game’s titular star cannon, in which players control from a fixed turret called the Sentinel. Featuring fast-paced wave-shooter action, players will prevent enemies from penetrating the Sentinel’s perimeter, zooming into close range combat and beat them back if they penetrate their defenses.
- Mystifying Modes to Master: With two modes of play, pilots can start from the beginning and battle their way through 50 unique levels, or pick up where they left off to power through to the end
Developed by Llamasoft and legendary game designer Jeff Minter, who previously brought the original Tempest and its successor Tempest 4000™ to life, Akka Arrh embodies his signature and recognizable light-synth style.
Akka Arrh is available now on PC via Steam, Xbox S|X, PlayStation 4|5, and Nintendo Switch for $19.99 USD.
