April 11, 2014 - Independent game developer KarjaSoft releases the tongue-in-cheek superhero puzzle RPG Spandex Force: Champion Rising.
Spandex Force: Champion Rising is a hex based superhero puzzler that features match-3 battles against villains and crooks threatening the city of Vigilance Valley. The player has one month to transform an everyday citizen into a superhero, aided by the Blizzard Wizard's dubious tutoring.
The game is filled with minigames that let the player rescue old ladies in distress, raise the hero's reputation, or train to enhance his or her physical, elemental and mental powers. The cast includes colorful opponents such as the Heavy Mob, Countess Conundrum and Professor Aphasia, as well as evil robots, corrupt government officials, heroes in need of anger management training - among many others.
Spandex Force: Champion Rising is available for Windows at the price of $6.99, and through Google Play with an in-app purchase of $2.99 to unlock the full version. More information and demo downloads can be found at the official webpage:
