The Smurgliens have tapped into Earth’s Wi-Fi long enough yet strangely, all their planned invasion seems concerned for is the planet’s supply of internet, the absurdity it calls music and cat videos.
Don’t bother making sense but join Black House Coffee House’s playable baristas Nick Miller and Ashley Corts as they attempt to restore balance with this Pittsburgh-inspired brew of arcade action.
Featuring flings, breakables, power-ups, mini-games and attacks hand-picked straight from the original 16-bit HD Sega Genesis/Mega Drive edition, Coffee Crisis’ PC and Xbox One specs further allow for —
- Death Metal Combat, where the lights turn ‘disco’, the enemies spawn erratically, cheat codes don’t work, and random modifiers unexpectedly hurt/help/distort the player for increased difficulty level maximum. Play through the single player campaign once to unlock.
- Twitch/Mixer Integration. Silent coffee-house type? Call the shots on your favorite streamers by deciding which modifiers are applied to their publicly-broadcast sessions.
- Coffee Beans. Mash those buttons with enough dexterity per level and you just might earn yourself a discount on a Coffee Crisis cartridge.
A Skinny Chestknee cameo with reinvigorated sound effects, reworked animated sprites, dedicated support for the Razer Chroma keyboard, Level FX, dual controller compatibility with adequate rumble and an in-game backer-celebrating Hall of Fame are all extras.
Coffee Crisis on PC/Consoles is plenty of exclusive guitar riffs with equal parts double-bass drums, breakdowns and melody that’s apparently meant to both crush and spill coffee beans, relates the music producing duo of Mitch Foster – AJ NOE. Listen to Rainy streets(above), Tizzy and Reach For Home as proofs of concept.
The Sega Genesis/ Mega Drive meanwhile features a 11-track original score by Greywalker.
