Corporate News: Headstrong Games announces release of Top Gun: Hard Lock on
PS3, Xbox 360 and PC
Eindhoven, April 18, 2012 - Catalis SE, the worldwide service provider for
the digital media and entertainment industry, is pleased to announce the
release of a new, original title from its Headstrong Games studio.
Headstrong Games, in partnership with 505 Games, are extremely pleased to
announce the release of ´Top Gun: Hard Lock´ on Playstation(R) 3, Xbox 360
Top Gun: Hard Lock straps the player in the ejector seat of the iconic F-14
Tomcat for lightning fast aerial dog-fighting, as you tailgate MiGs at
Mach2, thrusting you right into the Danger Zone. A modern take on the
much-loved 80s movie, Top Gun: Hard Lock follows the story of Lance
´Spider´ Webb, one of the newest recruits at Miramar, as he finds himself
with much more than basic training to deal with when political uncertain
turns recruits into front line troops.
The game has received lavish praise in the gaming press, appreciated for
its bold take on a license and as a great addition to the arcade flight
combat genre. ´Ace Combat: Assault Horizon attempted to make an old series
edgy and cool and failed. Top Gun: Hard Lock is its own thing, paying
perfect homage to its source material´ - (Gamedynamo), ´Taking control of
the real world planes in Top Gun: Hard Lock has taken me to the highway of
the danger zone´ - (SelectButton), ´If you are into aerial combat with an
arcade twist, Top Gun: Hard Lock is your best bet´ - (nerdfarm).
´The chance to create a new chapter for the Top Gun franchise was something
we couldn´t resist´ said Steve Pritchard, Studio Head at Headstrong Games.
´The development team relished the opportunity of finding the right look
and playing style for a modern twist on that iconic brand.´
