Beat Cop: Console Edition Brings 80s Cop Show Vibes to Switch Today!

Warsaw, Poland, March 5, 2019 – 11 bit studios is happy to announce that their 80’s cop show inspired indie hit, Beat Cop is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For the average price of a dozen donuts ($14.99 / €14.99), you can fill the shoes of disgraced detective Jack Kelly on his road to redemption after being framed for murder.

Patrolling the gritty streets of 1980’s Brooklyn is no cake walk, and when you’re a police officer who has been implicated for a murder you didn’t commit, it’s even harder. Jack Kelly’s on a mission to clear his name in this pixel perfect homage to the cop shows of days gone by, and he can’t do it without your help.

Solve puzzling problems on the roughest of streets, help the local community, deal with dangerous mobsters and gangsters, be the good cop or take the odd bribe on the side, and finally, solve the mystery of a murder you’ve been framed for.

Features:

  • Retro pixel art experience with a non-linear story and multiple endings
  • The pure essence of ‘80s cop shows
  • Mature *ahem* humor
  • Laying down the law, one ticket at a time

Originally developed for PC by the indie team at Pixel Crow and published by 11 bit studios, Beat Cop: Console Edition has been brought to life by the sweet, huggable team at Crunching Koalas.

Crunching Koalas plans to launch MouseCraft on Wii U this fall!

Cat scientist research game MouseCraft will arrive for Wii U during Q3 2015, developer Crunching Koalas has revealed. The 2D puzzler released last year for Steam and PlayStation platforms, receiving praise for its colorful aesthetic and puzzle design, while seeing criticism for unchallenging difficulty.

Starring a crazy cat scientist conducting an experiment involving three blind mice, MouseCraft has been deemed as a cross between Tetris and Lemmings, and revolves around overcoming gaps by placing blocks for the sightless rodents to get from point A to B. As you progress, an epic tale will unfold around you, as the feline experiment conductor tries to unravel the enigma behind a mysterious mice-powered machine. Players will have to overcome various environmental obstacles and dangers, but at their own pace, as MouseCraft utilizes an Active Pause mechanic, which can freeze the game at any point. Increasing the speed is also an option. And it wouldn’t be the full puzzle package without allowing players to create their own maps, which they will be able to share to the community, naturally.
