Shoot 1UP, Popular Xbox 360 Action Game, Updated for Disabled Gamers
Date:5/27/2010

Highest rated* Indie Game shoot 'em up on Xbox 360 has been updated for ease of play by disabled gamers to include single-button controls, quick start options, and more.

(PRWEB) May 27, 2010 -- Game developer Mommy's Best Games, creator of award-winning, independent, console games are proud to announce an accessibility-rich update to their second release, the shoot 'em up space-ship orgy known as Shoot 1UP. Shoot 1UP is currently available for download on the Xbox 360 Indie Games channel, for only 80MS points (equivalent of US$1).

Shoot 1UP now supports a "single-button" control option, ideal for disabled gamers, allowing players to pilot their phalanx of up to 30 fighter ships against swarms of enemies using only one button. Used in conjunction with the “auto-fire” option players control their ships by pressing a button to travel in the direction of an on-screen arrow. After each button press, the arrow rotates 90 degrees, giving players access to the full screen with one input. This button is configurable from 6 button choices; based on the player’s accessibility and comfort needs. Other accessibility features include:

 
  • Game play speed controls in which gamers can slow the entire game down to accommodate slower reaction time,
  • Quick start option which can begin a new game with a single input, using your last settings,
  • Auto-fire and auto-formation management options for those who become easily fatigued,
  • New flight-path icons for less dependence on screen text,
  • Contrast changes to the background graphics for gamers with eye sensitivities or various perception problems, and
  • Fully configurable button re-mapping for regular controls.

Shoot 1UP includes three vastly different, hand-tuned difficulty settings ranging from “Chilled” mode for novice gamers, “Normal” mode for core gamers looking for a nostalgic blast-a-thon, and “Serious” mode for hard-core shoot ‘em up fans. The special "Score Trek" mode, in which players control one ship but can save progress after every level, has been re-tuned in this version to be easier, more approachable, and more fun over all.

Barrie Ellis, director of www.oneswitch.co.uk, says “Bullet-Hell made accessible like never before. The main-stream could learn a lot from Shoot 1UP.”

“We want everyone to get a chance to enjoy the complete insanity of dead killer whales, Mecha Lilith, and flying brain ships,” says Nathan Fouts, president of Mommy’s Best Games, “With the potential for a shoot ‘em up to be enjoyed by more gaming fans, it was a no-brainer to add single-button and remappable controls support.”
