Less than a year after its release date, Tunisian game development studio Nuked Cockroach through their CEO Aaron Bouchrit, announced that their game, Fighters Run, has surpassed a million downloads on Playstore.
The game, published by Tapnation as part of a global partnership deal, is a clever reimagination of the popular game temple run, where instead of a temple explorer running from demon monkeys, Fighter Run uses popular anime characters to defeat their enemies and gather the maximum energy to obliterate the boss and show the universe how strong they are. The platformer hyper-casual game would be described as a crossover or a mashup of two arts; gaming and anime.
You start as Goku, a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. He is a powerful and brutal alien warrior from the planet Vegeta who was sent to Earth as an infant. Goku appears in most episodes, films, television specials, and OVAs of the manga’s anime adaptations and many of the franchise’s video games. He has many forms, including Super Saiyan and Great Ape. As you progress in the game and earn reputable points, you can unlock new characters with different move sets.
Nuked Cockroach is an independent game development studio that aims to produce enjoyable games with lots of action. As part of their vision, CEO Aaron Bouchrit has in the past commented that games should be player-centered and this recent milestone is a concrete validation of this belief.
