If you don’t recognize the name, that’s because the 2D platformer game you may know as Fenix Rage is now Fenix Furia. Why exactly? “Well, we believe this name captures the powerful dynamics of the new features that this version of the game will have,” writes Green Lava Studios CEO Eduardo Ramirez in a PlayStation blog post.
Ramirez also outlined the game’s new features:
- Easy Mode: Not everyone is automatically a master to our fast action, so for brand-new players we’ve added a new Easy Mode. Unlike Normal mode where one hit will kill you, in Easy Mode you can get hit once and survive! We still want people to try not to get hit so they can get the Golden Cookie. Plus it’s cool not to get hit.
- Retuned & Redesigned Levels: We’ve also reworked about 25% of all the levels in Fenix Furia — we made improvements based on direct player feedback so there aren’t so many extreme spikes in difficulty between levels.
- Two Player Mode: We split the screen in two so that you can have double the fun! We made this because we really enjoy local multiplayer games like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Rocket League (both in split-screen). It’s so much fun to play against another player on PS4 in the same room. Also, we’ve added a new character for this mode — Undead Fenix!
Undead Fenix appears to be a Bizarro version of the regular Fenix, though Ramirez didn’t give too many details other than that the Undead version is “more badass.”
