Check out the latest gameplay trailer, screenshots, and details below.
In the world of Juicy Realm, the line between animals and plants is blurred to the extreme. Plants have gained sentience—and limbs—and are now fighting humanity to top the food chain. It’s up to you to lead a team into the mysterious plant kingdom, defeating the foul fruit once and for all!
The top-down, roguelike game features myriad fun, unique elements for players to unearth, including randomly-generated maps in locations like the forest, the desert, and the deep sea; different weapons to master, like the wrench or the shotgun; an endless supply of treasure to collect and monsters to defeat; a big boss that can appear at random; and a host of Easter eggs to discover. Juicy Realm can be played in a solo campaign, or players can team up with friends in a cooperative local multiplayer mode.
In this top-down dual-stick shooter, the player must cut down cute pears or obliterate big-eyed watermelon. These frightening fruits are actually vicious and doing everything they can to take you down. Players must move quickly and agilely in order to successfully defeat their foes.
The recent-released sketches reveal a stunningly original art style from Juicy Realm, courtesy of one half of the two-person dev team that created it: Chinese comic artist Bibo X (aka Ling Lu), who previously won China’s Golden Dragon Award Original Animation & Comic Competition. Bibo X’s work can be found in his comic book The World of Buby. In addition, he has collaborated with various publications and companies, including PopCap (Plants vs. Zombies) and Paramount (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
The impressively delicate animation style, gorgeously rendered and distinctive graphics, the strong hit feedback after each attack will take players to a thrilling juicy adventure with fun
