The colorful action puzzle game Petal Crash, introduced in 2020, is getting a Neo Geo port, providing a retro gaming experience for fans and newcomers alike.

Indie Game 'Petal Crash' to Have a Neo Geo Port

The well-received action puzzler indie game 'Petal Crash,' initially introduced to gamers across platforms such as Steam, Nintendo Switch, PS4, iOS, and Android by Friends & Fairy and Galaxy Trailer back in 2020, gears towards expanding its horizons. The arcade-styled, colorful block-matching game has an ultimately classic appeal, hearkening back to traditional 90s arcade action puzzlers. The official account of Petal Crash recently announced a brand-new port for Neo Geo, being handled by the game developer Rosenthal Castle.

Petal Crash's gameplay, an affectionate homage to its arcade ancestors, requires players to push blocks across the board, strategically matching them with same-colored pairs to set off fascinating chain reactions. The game offers various modes, including an engaging story campaign. Players can choose from an eclectic selection of characters to play.

The upcoming Neo Geo port of the game promises to enhance the arcade authenticity as it will work on original arcade hardware. The Neo Geo port will include the original story mode, as well as score attack and versus mode. Although a specific release date is yet unseen, the launch of the port is expected sometime in 2024.

Reiterating their plans for expansion, last month, the game creators announced an exciting sequel titled 'Petal Crash 2.' A crowdfunding campaign to develop this project is expected to kick off in early 2024. While precise details remain under wraps, avid fans and gamers are eagerly awaiting the new developments.
