Tango Fiesta is an action packed top-down cooperative two stick shooter for 1 to 4 players. Set in a world where the events from every single 80’s action film ever made actually happened to one unlucky hero called John Strong, you and up to three friends get to blast, shoot, knife, and high score your way through endless procedurally generated levels in the ultimate true story behind all those amazing movies!

What’s in Tango Fiesta right now? All of this...6 CLASSIC ACTION HEROES TO CHOOSE FROM!
JOHN STRONG! The world’s least-known most-dangerous man.
MACMILLAN! John’s best friend and comrade in arms.
BIONIC COP! He thinks he’s a Cop. He thinks he’s a robot. But is he either? Both? NEITHER?

CONCHITA! Five feet three inches of pure dynamite, this wrongly-convicted felon is out to prove her innocence by killing everyone in her way.
DR HENK! he’s a doctor of parapsychology don't you know? He loves bustin' too, and this hobby just became his only means of survival!
MILLER! A slightly scary Australian man with a nice jacket and an even nicer sawn-off shotgun.4 PLAYER ONLINE & LOCAL COOPERATIVE PLAY!Team up with your friends to deal out death and destruction to the endless hordes!
ENDLESS PROCEDURAL CHALLENGE!Five worlds of procedurally generated mayhem means no two plays are ever the same across all 20 stages! 17 enemy types keep the action challenging and fresh!

Take in the sun (and avoid the bullets) on the golden sandy beaches of Gordon’s Island!

Dive for cover in the usefully-tough foliage that grows in the Central American Jungle!

Prove your innocence by killing your way through the fiendish death mazes in the world’s most popular TV show, Who Wants To Be A Killionaire!

Don't cross the streams! Busting ghouls and ghosts in the spooky, fog-laden Ghoul Squad!

Define the future of law enforcement fighting through the rust belts riddled through future Detroit!
Although our main inspirations are better known for their snappy one liners over their well developed character arcs we’re taking the opportunity to set the world to rights. Help John Strong as he unveils the true story behind all of your favourite classic 1980’s action flicks. Go with him if you want to believe!
Every Quaid needs his Richter. Every Ripley needs her Alien Queen. Every Matrix needs his Bennett. We’re going to cover you in so many iconic, hilarious, over the top and challenging bosses you’ll wish you’d never promised to save the world.

Will you choose the Oozy 9mm, Arius A1, Matrix 80, Sawn-off, Viper Combat Rifle, or one of the other 25 to crush your enemies with? Say hello to every little friend you could ever want - unlock them through play and then buy them for your hero!

Our heroes ain’t got time to bleed, but the rest of the world doesn’t get off so lightly. Getting overrun? Destroy those Spawn Huts to stem the tide of bad guys. Stuck between a rock and a hard place? Blast your way through any wall or structure - show those bricks who’s boss!

So the game’s out? So what! We’ll be updating it soon with even more awesome features!

STEAM WORKSHOP SUPPORT! Create your own heroes, share them and play with them online or off! Even if you don’t have them yet, you can see your friends’ creations in action! Think we’ve missed as 80’s action hero? Then get drawing!

LINUX PORT! We know how many people out there want this, so we’re going to deliver!

Tango Fiesta reviews and comments

Early Access Review Well Guys if you gone through the mighty 80's You would simply fell in love with this game... It's a sort of Rambo directly from C64 crossed with Commando Arcade by Capcom. It 's a good challenge and really addictive .. I enjoyed it from the first early realease and this guys are making it everyday better with new patches . 8,00 Euros for your childhood dream is a little effort for a big step on your 80's moon dream so far in the years so near now. BUY IT !!!

I had seen a friend try this game in early access a few months ago and unfortunately all the flaws I had spotted at the time are present in this final version. It is all the more problematic that the twin stick shooter is a genre very represented on steam and that most are of better quality. The worst for Tango Fiesta is that he could have played on his theme "American action movies of the years 80", except that it puts him in direct competition with Broforce who does it much better than he does. In the end, if all is not to throw, I can not decently advise you, pity, the idea of departure was good.

Tango Fiesta, save with your b * * * and your machine gun the daughter of the President of the United States Tango Fiesta can be played alone but is much more interesting if you play in cooperation or multiplayer. Aesthetically, the game is inspired by the games in years 1980/1990 with a basic design and pixelised graphics. You play John strong and the daughter of the President (and at the same time your fiancée) has been kidnapped. You will stir heaven, Earth and sea to find her and save her. Note that you are not obliged to play John strong. Several characters are available with each of their own skills. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=529946716 to discover all my impressions on Tango Fiesta. [www.graal.fr]

Early access review aside from the fact that sometimes (all the time?) the feeling of playing a good old Flash game, Tango Fiesta proves ultimately an experience without great pretense, but still enjoyable to discover. Indeed, if all or almost in the title of spilt milk studios and Mastertronic gives the impression of a realization over the leg, it remains nevertheless that once taken in hand, this one proves in the end relatively fluid, dynamic and fun. In short, an app that, like its developers, seems to go well to the essentials, and that it would be a shame to judge too hastily on its appearances a little cheap... (hoping that the next updates still fix some of its small weaknesses) My detailed review of the game: http://www.gamelove.com/test-tango-fiesta-118322
