After a short soft launch, BUKA Development has released an updated version of the classic Russian adventure game Red Comrades: Save The Galaxy onto Android devices. For those of you not familiar with this game, Red Comrades: Save The Galaxy was originally released for PC back in 1998 and was a pretty big hit in Russia, while the rest of the world also saw the game doing fairly well for itself.
This new release of Red Comrades: Save The Galaxy is labeled as being a reloaded edition. According to the developers, this version retains the original graphics and content, but the entire coding for the game has been redone in Unity 3D, making it much more optimized for mobile devices and support widescreen resolutions. This also means the UI for Red Comrades was designed specifically for phones and tablets. The original voice acting has also been saved and brought back for this version as well.
The storyline is also the same, which you can check out below:
Russia is in a midst of Civil War. Both the front line and Ural River splits the village Backwoods in two. One part of the village is somehow controlled by the brave Red Army division headed by Chapaev. Remnants of the cowardly Whites are still comfortably stationed on the other side. Vasily Ivanovich Chapaev and his fellow aide Petka wake up to find themselves in a bad hangover and in a worse mood. They realize that someone has stolen the Red banner from the HQ. Our heroes are totally depressed with such a misfortune, just like every decent Red army fighters should be. This unbearable offense leaves them no choice but to sneak into the enemy territory and to retrieve the precious banner. Although it’s not the end of the story yet! Somewhere on the moon, legions of alien invaders prepare to conquer Earth. But could such a little thing really give a scare to the Red Army heroes?
Red Comrades Features:
• Incredibly lush new high-res hand-painted graphics.
• The beginning of the epic and captivate adventures of beloved characters.
• Breathtaking story.
• Enormous amount of puzzles to solve.
• Hilarious gags.
Red Comrades: Save The Galaxy is actually the first installment in the franchise, so with this release this should mean that BUKA Development is already working on future installments for Android. The storyline is full of vodka drinking, plenty of humor, and pretty much everything else you would think of being Russian. However, the game plays out like your standard point-and-click adventure game in terms of mechanics, with plenty of puzzles to solve along the way.
