Halfbrick Announces Colossatron

What is it about the summer heat that whets the human appetite for giant robots and aliens? Colossatron: Massive World Threat is a new action game from Halfbrick Studios (makers of Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja) that challenges you to slither around a city as a robot serpent from outer space and cause as much damage as possible.

Halfbrick revealed the game at PAX Australia. You control Colossatron, an “unstoppable force of destruction” that ruins everything in its path while reporters Rick Dalton and Katie Hazard report on Earth’s gradual disassembly. You make Colossatron stronger by collecting and attaching red, blue, and yellow Powernodes, with each color representing a new weapon or ability. You can even combine colors to make stronger Powernode tiers.

Don’t think you’ll have an easy time of turning the planet into a playground, though. General Mustache is on your tail, and man, he loves war.

Colossatron is coming later this year. We recommend kicking over some garbage cans and denting some mailboxes to get you in the destruction groove. No, kidding. Don’t do that. Support your community.
