Legendary game designer Jeff Minter and his Llamasoft outfit is back with another blast of psychedelic shooter action, this time in the form of Akka Arrh – a “reimagining” of an ’80s arcade cabinet game that never actually released.
This, of course, is a somewhat different scenario to Minter’s Polybius, which was inspired by an ’80s arcade cabinet game that never actually existed. Akka Arrh, though, is very much a thing, having been designed by Atari’s Mike Hally and Dave Ralston as a prototype back in 1982.
Minter’s reimagining of Akka Arrh – of which only three cabinets are still said to exist – has been created in partnership with Atari, and promises “a cascade of words, colour, shapes and sound [flowing] around your turret as you desperately fight off swarms of inbound attackers”.
