About Moon Diver:

Developed by feelplus inc., Moon Diver was created by Koichi Yotsui, the visionary game designer behind one of the most iconic arcade action games of the last two decades, Strider®. While Moon Diver certainly pays homage to its side-scrolling ancestor with hordes of enemies and gigantic bosses, the game innovates in a number of ways, including entirely modern three-dimensional graphics; a dynamic and intuitive character experience and levelling system, and four-player local and online co-op with the ability to instantly drop in and out.

Moon Diver also features a number of unique, selectable, upgradeable and cooperatively combinable character special abilities called“MoonSault Combinations”, which can dramatically alter the field of play at any moment– from powerful area-of-effect attacks to critical passive power boosts to simple, yet effective, invisibility.

Download Moon Diver today for an action-packed world of cooperative, side-scrolling mayhem.
