Build it better. Build it Ambrosia.
Ambrosia is an action game about fighting fire with fire - or science with science - with ingenius weapon building. As engineer Iris, craft screen-filling death dealers, single-fire precision weapons, or something altogether different. There are no wrong answers, just a lot of fun ones!
About the Game
On the island of Aspida, scientists and researchers have discovered Ambrosia - the next step in human innovation, a mad promise to astonish and astound. But mad science means mad scientists, and when the research colony goes dark, Iris rightly assumes something has gone very wrong. Players take control of the audacious engineer as she travels to the inscrutable island to find the source of Ambrosia and put a stop to the madness.
To overcome Aspida’s dangers, players will search the island for weapons and components to craft a unique arsenal. Weapon modification in Ambrosia is a simple process. Take the Pulse Breaker, built around three energy cores that each discharge energy blasts. Iris can charge a single core to unleash a more powerful blast, but if all three cores are spent, she must wait before firing again. So let us make it better!
First, we insert a bursting core mod, which expends all active cores in a single cone of fire when charged. Now we have more damage, but we also have a longer wait to recharge all three cores. If we miss an enemy, we’re in trouble! So we add a splitter, which splits shots when fired normally or when charged. Add an extra core, and our shots go from three to four - or four to eight with the bursting core!
The goal is to offer straight-forward experimentation that yields immediate results with a system deep enough to reward true ingenuity!
