Fruit Ninja/Jetpack Joyride studio announces Colossatron: Massive World Threat

Halfbrick, makers of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, have unveiled their next game at PAX Australia -- Colossatron: Massive World Threat.


Halfbrick, the makers of Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja, have announced their next game at PAX Australia. Colossatron: Massive World Threat has players placed in the middle of a battle between a giant robotic snake and the military, led by the aptly-named General Moustache, with the idea to cause as much wanton destruction as possible.

The debut trailer reveals some of Colossatron in action, showing off the main gameplay mechanic of matching red, yellow, and blue Powernodes. Match nodes will unlock new weapons and abilities and ultimately make the titular Colossatron bigger and increase his destructive capability.

"Success is measured by one key metric--dollars of damage caused," notes Halfbrick's announcement press release. "The more powerful Colossatron is, the more destroyed and the higher the score. Players can compare and even combine their destructive powers, with additional competitive and cooperative social features revealed soon."

Colossatron: Massive World Threat is coming to iOS. Release date and pricing have not been revealed.
