    LPAMAN & The Missing Phoenix Full Release Now Available For Download!

    Thumbnail

    After over 10 months of development and much blood, sweat and tears from Keaton Hashimoto (the game's developer, designer and composer) we are proud to finally announce the world premiere of the world's first ever full-length fan made Linkin Park video game featuring art, stages and themes inspired by the band's music and videos from 2000 till now. The game, titled LPAMAN & The Missing Phoenix, was heavily inspired by Linkin Park's music videos, artwork and music, and features a visual throwback to the classic 8-bit/16-bit era of video games. As such, the game play is very challenging while providing a fresh take on the fan game concept, at least when it comes to music bands. Those who have played video game classics like Mega Man, Super Mario Bros, and Metroid will love the game's tongue-in-cheek nods to those memorable games and their humor, as well as other popular 8-bit/16-bit video games from that era.

    The Story:
    In a time before Linkin Park made it big, there was a void in the name of a missing bassist. Distraught but unable to search for themselves, the band hires help. Enter LPAMAN: A silent-but-deadly agent with an unknown past and the ability to throw fire. Hot fire. From his hands. Upon finding his first lead, LPAMAN soon realizes the greater conspiracy behind the bassist's disappearance.

    Can you save the band, and the world before it's too late?

    The Game:
    The play style is a hybrid of Super Mario platforming meets Mega Man combat with a little adventure thrown in, which help boast a strong emphasis of tactile combat and platforming elements. LPAMAN will traverse land, water and a couple obscure locations as he battles to find the missing Phoenix. Utilizing a unique firing system, LPAMAN goes further than simply being a shoot-em-up or a Mario clone, forcing players to learn, adapt and utilize all skills and knowledge. With a very old-school difficulty and diverse Worlds for LPAMAN to travel through, this game asks the players, “Just how much do you want to save Phoenix, the bassist from Linkin Park?!”

    LPAMAN & The Missing Phoenix has been built from the ground up to be a completely unique experience and features not only customized graphics specifically drawn for the game, but also boasts a large soundtrack composed specifically for the game as well. Featuring 9 worlds and over 70 levels, LPAMAN is designed to provide hours of game play as well as an extreme challenge for old-school and new-school video-gamers alike.

    Working on this project for the fans was an absolute honor, and we hope that both the band and Linkin Park fans across the globe will enjoy this absolutely incredible game and pass it on to their friends. Please let us know your opinions in our comments section of this news post!.

    You'd have to use something like Joy2Key or Xpadder.

    when you shoot, lpaman lifts up about 1cm off the platform and themnshoots. therefore you cant shoot any enemies who are on the ground and who are small.

    Unfortunately. But you can turn sticky keys off. So, there's that.

    You can shoot downward. Read the manual.
