Istanbul, April 20th  - From the minds of Hero Concept, comes the arcade brick breaker that is putting an addictively fun twist on a classic genre. Doughlings: Arcade combines the timeless fun of brick breaker mechanics, and an art style with a nostalgic feel, with a fresh take on power-ups, character evolution, level design and humorous narration.

Rather than rest easy with a tested classic, Hero Concept has added new layers of clever play and mechanics. Playing as Morpheus you are tasked with healing as many of your fellow Doughlings as possible in each level. The traditional power-up is revamped and instead, Doughlings offers the 'Show Off' which when earned provides an effective and entertaining trait to use in each level. 


Character evolution comes into play in a unique way with Doughlings in the form of unlocking additional personas. Personas are activated by DNA in the level and are limited time power-ups with special abilities. Each persona comes with its own unique "Show Off" trait providing alternate gameplay that results in creative strategies and some humorous animations. 

Doughlings is jam-packed with 90 levels of varying levels of difficulty and opponents that provide even the most seasoned brick breaker a challenge. An additional layer of progression is present with Morpheus and his 6 alternate personas by collecting elixirs to activate even more powerful abilities. 

If 90 levels aren't enough, Doughlings also offers level creation. Players can design and share their custom-made levels, offering endless amounts of play time and challenges. 

To put the icing on the cake, Doughlings is topped off with comical narration that isn't afraid to tell it like it is. Doughlings: Arcade will be available on Steam, Green Man Gaming, Fanatical, and Kinguin for PC and Mac in May.
