OUYA is publishing games now: here's what's out there so far
OUYA unfortunately couldn’t translate its early hype into hardware sales of its Android-based console, but the game maker is now using its second lease on life, courtesy of Razer, to publish games for Android TV.
The latest game pushed out by publisher OUYA Global is Mercenary Kings, a 2D action game that might remind you a bit of BroForce or a Contra game. Originally release on Steam, and eventually on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, Mercenary Kings brought it’s over-the-top tale of an island assault and playful take on action movie tropes to Android TV last week.
Beyond its run and gun core, Mercenary Kings stuffs looting and crafting elements inside and in between its more than 100 missions. There’s a progression system in place and support for up to four players in co-op — of course, you can lone wolf it if you want.
OUYA Global has published three games to the Play Store so far
And the first title OUYA Global published to Google Play arrive back in June, bringing its retro-style ghosting and arcade gameplay to Android TV. Like its stablemates, Mimic Arena is meant for local multiplayer play and pits couch-side combatants against one another. Mimic Arena players are armed with a vast arsenal of weapons, but it’s the game’s mimic mechanic that makes it unique. Each action a player makes will be mimicked by a clone, which can make for some interesting strategies.
We’re sure OUYA isn’t done publishing new titles to the Play Store anytime soon, so head to the link attached below to access the OUYA Global developer page.
