Loosely based on the 1982 Walt Disney Pictures movieThe second arcade games inspired by the classic movie, Tron is set to hit the Xbox live Arcade on Wednesday, February 13.
Developed by Disney Interactive Studios, Discs of Tron will feature: multiplayer mode, classic versus mode,where the highest scorer wins, Speed versus, Ci-op and Deadly Disc versus, where players play simultaneously and power-ups help one player or hinder another.
In Discs of Tron, players face off in a three-dimensional arena against the film’s villain, Sark, as they throw discs to try to knock him off of a platform or “derezz” him with a disc while he counters. The game, which includes both classic and enhanced modes, gets increasingly more difficult as players progress. A player’s advancement through the game includes multiple platforms of different altitudes, a barricade between the two combatants and chasers, which are secondary weapons from Sark. The player’s deflector can provide necessary temporary protection from Sark’s onslaught of discs.
“Discs of Tron is considered an arcade classic as it mesmerized fans who wanted an entertaining and challenging experience derived from the innovative film,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “The game’s release on Xbox LIVE Arcade enables multiple generations to play the addictive game in both its original form from 25 years ago and an enhanced mode with upgraded graphics and sound.”
The enhanced mode features high-definition graphics that show the three-dimensional arena surrounded by a cityscape from the world of Tron. The game’s audio is also upgraded in the enhanced mode.The screenshot above is from the enhanced mode.
