March 4, 2015 – Brain Shape Games is happy to announced that SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance is now available on Valve’s Steam platform. This enhanced version of the PC game features full Steamworks integration for achievements, stats, leaderboards, cloud saves, big picture mode and trading cards. Along with the Steam additions, the game has been upgraded from its original PC release with improved visual effects, enhanced graphics, gameplay tweaks and more!
SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance comes packed with an original story spanning 36 missions, as well as nine survival missions, four ship classes, tons of ship upgrades, and plenty of couch co-op action for up to four players. In classic SHMUP fashion, players will fight hundreds of on-screen enemies as they furiously battle across the universe.
- The game features a unique mechanic called the salvage system which governs your objectives in the levels, your upgrades between levels, and provides a scoring mechanic. SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance also has a strong focus on cooperative play, with different ship types featuring unique abilities that promote teamwork between players. Classes should feel familiar to MMO players with the likes of a “healer,” “tank” and other ships that are all upgradable.
- 4 Player Co-Op
- 4 Ship Classes
- 9 Upgrades
- 10 Survival Missions
- 36 Story Missions
