Open preorder for POWA! starts at 19th of July 2020 and ends 16th of August 2020. If you pre-order the game within this phase, you will get the following benefits:
- a bronze-colored collector's coin as a free physical bonus (only one per customer, unrelated to the number of items you get)
- access to the closed beta test of POWA! in September 2020 via eMail
POWA! is a newly-developed action-platformer in a similar vein as other genre-classics of the handheld, like Kirby's Dreamland and Trip World.
The gameplay is decidedly kept simple and makes POWA! easy to pick it up, but challenging to conquer. A good variety of level themes and obstacles, with an ever-increasing difficulty curve keep the experience thoroughly engaging and fresh!
POWA! has been solely developed by the Spain-based GBdev-enthusiast Aiguanachein, with support from Sergio de Prado for the music and Ivan Miguel for art designs & graphic touch-ups. The game uses the ZGB engine by Zal0.
