[prMac.com] Montgomery, Alabama - One Man Left Studios has announced the release of its first multiplayer gametype for Tilt to Live for iOS, called Viva la Coop! It's a free addition to the game's 99 (US) Expansion, Viva la Turret, released in December of 2010. This cooperative mode works over wi-fi or Bluetooth between two local devices. Wi-fi play will sync the pair's highscore to a dedicated Coop leaderboard.
Tilt to Live, currently enjoyed by more than half a million users, is an arcade shooter with a unique combat system. Rather than endlessly firing at enemies, players must evade them long enough to reach one of nine unlockable weapon orbs. All of this action is controlled exclusively by responsive, customizable tilt controls. The game's scope has been expanded over time to include 4 gametypes, plus an additional turret weapon and gametype with purchase of the Viva la Turret expansion.
In Viva la Coop, the two-player version of Viva la Turret, two local players must work together to survive an endless barrage of enemies for as long as possible, racking up as many points as they can. One player operates a minigun turret, giving himself and his defenseless teammate some breathing room. The other player is in charge of collecting multiplier jewels left behind by defeated enemies.
Viva la Coop marks the fourth major expansion since Tilt to Live's February 2010 release on the App Store, and celebrates the game's one year anniversary. It will be ported to Tilt to Live HD, the game's iPad counterpart, this March.
