A Germany based indie game studio Rarepixels enters Chinese mobile gaming market with its game 2 Minutes in Space in February 2019. This strategic step is undertaken together with the local partner Cokgame ( 深圳市火星人互动娱乐有限公司 ). The cooperation between the companies began in Summer 2018 and reached its highest point (the launch of the mobile game) precisely for the Chinese New Year. Not only the title of the game has been changed to 翻滚飞机大战 but also its content has been modified to suit the interests of the Chinese gamers.  However, some things still remain the same: high quality of the game, its unforgettable music and exciting spirit of adventures. At the moment, 2 Minutes in Space is available for free in 5 Chinese Android App Stores, including Oppo Store, Vivo Store and Taptap Store (Screenshots are attached).

 

2 Minutes in Space is a survival game that offers a great time and challenging obstacles for all the star wanderers and adventurers out there. It's available for free worldwide in Android and iOS  App Stores. All a player needs to do is to choose one of the twelve different space ships equipped with lasers, guns or laser cannons and define the destination: the Moon, Orion Nebula or Asteroid Belts. The next step is a simple one: press start and challenge space! Missiles sent by invisible enemies, asteroids crushing with the space ship and insidious nebulas that slow down the speed will reduce survival chances to zero. Luckily for the gamers, the energy boost, deflector shield, ammunition, electromagnetic pulse (E.M.P) and gold collected in the deep space will keep them alive and turn playing into an exciting adventure. Three kinds of controls, amazing studio-recorded music versus the sounds of outer space, impressive graphics and clear instructions will bring unforgettable gaming experience. How long will you be able to survive? We give you 2 minutes top… Would you make it?

 

Rarepixels is an indie studio based in Munich, Germany. Its first game Planes Control was launched in Summer 2015 and has gained a remarkable positive reputation in the gaming world.
