Armed with a Weaponized Chancla, Nothing Can Stop Captain ToonHead!
Captain ToonHead vs the Punks from Outer Space follows the eccentric narrative of one Elliott Salazar. After a horrific burrito-related explosion that wiped out his squad, it’s up to Elliot to save Earth from space jerks. Donning a TV helmet with a big hero costume, Elliot must post up defenses to battle his enemies with a variety of wacky weapons. From TurboMjölnirs to Elliot’s grandmother’s chancla, there’s no shortage of the essential goods when it comes to saving Earth.
To see a decent sneak-peek into the world of Captain ToonHead vs the Punks from Outer Space, check out the launch trailer right here. The footage is split into an old-school action cartoon coupled with rock n’ roll lyrics that detail the game’s plot. Elliot’s squad is killed by a burrito; Elliot equips his outrageous costume; Elliot’s grandmother tosses her chancla to her grandson; the main enemies are Voorhees and his P.U.N.K. Army; and it concludes with the title card before switching over to the gameplay.
Elliot, now known as Captain ToonHead by his trustworthy computer, then dual-wields weapons to fight off waves in enemies in first-person view. Given that this is a VR title, you can expect some vibrant chaos coming your way when you have your headset on. The trailer ends with Captain ToonHead and Voorhees taunting each other before our titular hero proclaims his name.
Captain ToonHead vs the Punks from Outer Space is available now on Steam and Oculus for $24.99. HTC Vive headsets are also compatible with the title. Developer Teravision Games will soon work on implementing Valve Index inclusion, while PSVR owners will have to wait till sometime next year for their version of Captain ToonHead to arrive.
