Strike Force Foxx Screens and Details Fly Into View

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Sadly A-Team style doesn't let you build a chopper with tape and paper

Not too long ago we told you about Strike Force Foxx, a new title coming to the 3DS eShop from Big John Games that brings back memories of 1982 title Choplifter. Big John Games president Ken Patterson promised "over the top" 2D action, and the company has now revealed more details and some visuals to pique our interest.

Below is the initial description of the game, first of all, which is promising a decent amount of content.

Strike Force Foxx is a side-scrolling, 3D retro chopper attack-and-rescue game with a modern feel. You are Captain Raymond Foxx, guiding your Razor-One helicopter through intense missions, battling the enemy and saving your citizens from terror.

The mission is in: you’ve been ordered to destroy the terrorist organization, Grid, who is taking over your country. You also need to rescue all of your civilians that have been taken hostage by Grid, while you pursue the elusive Dr. Synchros, the mastermind behind the hostile takeover.

Players will take to the air in their helicopter in more than 35 missions to eliminate the numerous hazardous obstacles, including gunmen, tanks, helicopters, planes, machine-gunning jeeps, heat-seeking missiles, gunboats, battleships, submarines, and more. Along the way, players can upgrade their chopper with new, more powerful weapons to eradicate the enemy more efficiently. Players will be able to unleash a troop of mercenaries into a battle zone to help beat back the enemy, so the player can focus on rescuing civilians.

Above and below are a host of screenshots, meanwhile, with Big John Games telling us that it'll be polishing the title throughout March before progressing towards submission and approval in April; we may not have too long to wait before we can give this a whirl.

Are you interested in this one?

If this is showing screens from multiple levels than it looks somewhat repetitive. If it's above $4.99 I'll wait for a sale.

i'm kinda dissapointed that this didnt turn out to be a 3d helicopter sim able to move in all directions. but for what it is, it actually looks like it is going to be pretty good. lots of different enemies to kill, lots of levels, weapons, i just hope its not too expensive and the 3d looks good.

This one suffers from that dated sort of "rendered", dull and "realistic", mid 90s look unfortunately imo.

I'd much rather have nice clean vibrant pixel art over this.

The screen looks somewhat small. I wonder if you could fly hire because everything looks closely to gather

I'll have to see it in action first before I make any assumptions on the gameplay. Needless to say, screens do look pretty dull and uninspiring so far. Graphics don't make a game, but it's hard to judge a game's fun factor by still images.

I feel like the explosions are too big for what they're conveying (hits) and would become a distraction. And what's up with the jet? I wonder how they expect you to attack/defend against that...

Big John Games has yet to impress me on anything they've done (Thorium Wars could've been so much better), so this has to really be amazing for me to buy it.
