You need a healthy body to have a healthy mind. Pete, a middle-aged man who solves all serious life problems by opening a bag of crisps or taking a nap, has neither. In an attempt to interrupt Pete’s one-way trip to a heart attack, his great-uncle creates a nanobot that can clone white blood cells to clean up the mess inside Pete’s body. Welcome to Inside Pete.
Behind this bonkers backstory is a fun mobile game with a lot of strategic depth and a good sense of humour, created by Leuven based studio Sector 32. To survive the hazardous environment of a very sick dude’s entrails, players will have to find a balance between different battle tactics and resource management. The game features a power-up system with extensive upgrades to make your army of white blood cells even stronger.
Given the state of his body, the insides of Pete look more appealing than they probably should be. As you can see from the screenshots, the game boasts a nice looking 2D environment with dozens of units and colourful enemies that need to get the crap beaten out of them by your hemoglobin heroes.
Inside Pete launched on iOS last week, with an Android version to follow in in its wake. We wish the team at Sector 32 all the best and sincerely hope a lot of players are willing to save Pete from his sad existence. Here’s to a speedy recovery!
