Take Arms is a 2D multiplayer platformer currently in development for Xbox Live Indie Games service. It aims to deliver fast, challenging gameplay for up to 8 players over Xbox Live or System Link with stunning anime-style HD artwork, all at a smooth 60 FPS. Players can choose from three different classes, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. The Striker is quick and light, equipped with a sniper rifle and dual automatic handguns, while the slow and heavy Destroyer packs a belt-fed machine gun and .45 revolver. The Grunt is the middle ground and is equipped with a three round burst assault rifle and a semi-auto handgun. The game includes three modes (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag) and three maps (Bridge, Trainyard, Forest Complex). Local play with bots is available for all game modes with multiple difficulty levels.
