The ‘RSG Champions’ pack comprises eight playable heroes taken from other smash-hit indie games published by Rising Star Games, in a crossover of colossal proportions! Characters include Rusty from SteamWorld Collection, Gunborg from Zombie Vikings, and Conga Master, from, well, Conga Master. Meanwhile the ‘H8 Mode Activate’ pack offers up a further two playable characters and a collection of eight hardcore challenge levels to seriously test your platforming prowess.
