Last week we received the news that GameMaker Studio 2 – a 2D game development engine – will soon allow the option to export creations directly to Nintendo Switch. Thanks to this, Abylight Studios has announced that indie developer Locomalito – which uses GameMaker 2 – will be bringing both Super Hydorah and Cursed Castilla EX to Switch soon.
Super Hydorah is a nonlinear, horizontal shoot ’em up where an evil force has launched an invasion over the Omios star. Only you, the most skilled and deadly pilot in the galaxy, can face the dreadful menace of the Meroptians.
Super Hydorah Features:

– 3 game modes: single player, co-op multiplayer and the minigame robot chase
– Non-linear level layout with route selection

– Dangers of different nature in each level (not just bullets)
