Jetpack Joyride developer Halfbrick has announced the launch of its latest mobile game, Colossatron: Massive World Threat, on iOS and Google Play. The game sees players controlling a robotic snake with the goal of destroying as many cities and as much of Earth as possible.

In each stage, players will see Colossatron crash into buildings, demolish military attack vehicles and more, with new orbs for the robot appearing at random throughout each. Players drag these onto the robot to automatically attach them and add another weapon to Colossatron, with a color-mixing mechanic allowing players to mix nodes into weapons not otherwise available. Mixing a red and blue node, for instance, would create a purple node on the robot, while red and yellow makes an orange node, and so on.

The game is presented through the viewpoint of Action News 6, complete with field reports and interviews from military generals who are trying to stop Colossatron before he destroys the entire planet.

Players earn money in relation to the amount of damage done on each stage, and can spend that money to repair Colossatron, or to manually upgrade or rearrange the nodes on the snake.

“Colossatron has been a year in the making, with gameplay innovation being a key focus for the development team,” Halfbrick said in a release. “There’s nothing else quite like it, and Halfbrick is always proud to add another unique game to its portfolio of mobile hits.”

Colossatron: Massive World Threat is now available to download for $0.99 on iOS and Google Play. Check back soon to follow the game on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
