[prMac.com] Taiwan - Announcing that S&H Entertainment Localization, the developers of The Roadie, has released the latest version of their heavy metal rocker game. The Roadie must save the world from alien robots while avoiding an electrified wall that follows closely behind. This character driven game features fast-paced, non-stop action with an original heavy metal soundtrack for insanely addictive gameplay.
S&H Entertainment was originally founded by two Germans living in Taiwan, Hans Breuer, COO and Stefan Hahn, CFO. The two men are still happily located there, localizing video games and creating fun apps, like The Roadie. The Roadie is a result of the developer's love of heavy metal music and classic games, like Tap Tap Revenge and Guitar Hero. The app has tons of fun features, lots of action and of course, the music that inspired the game.
When a user decides to play The Roadie, he must battle alien killer robots, lest they take over the world. The Roadie plugged in a giant amp during a lightning storm and let the aliens through an inter-dimensional portal, and now it is up to him to get rid of them. To effectively rid the world of these alien pests, The Roadie must successful play his guitar in time to the app's original heavy metal soundtrack. Every note played in rhythm destroys another invader, so continued playing is definitely encouraged. Controlling play movement is a simple matter of swiping the screen to keep the side-scrolling action going.
There are definitely dangers for The Roadie. How well a player does is directly connected to the hardships he will have to endure. Killer aliens aside, if The Roadie is doing a poor job of blasting the enemy, he is chased by the electrified Wall of Death. If he gets caught, The Roadie is toast and the aliens win.
The app comes loaded with Open Feint, so rankings and unlockable awards are available for players and can be used as rewards and for monitoring play improvement. As a special incentive, the developer is offering The Roadie for only $0.99 to help users celebrate Christmas and the New Year. The promotion will run for about a month.
