Super Trench Attack!

Super Trench Attack!

Super Trench Attack! is a twin-stick shooter with a unique pixel art style and tons of goofy humor. It’s not particularly challenging or very long, but it is fun while it lasts and packs a bit more depth than you might think.

Gameplay: Basic top-down shooter with some shooting galleries thrown in for good measure.

Graphics: The pixel art visuals are detailed and often quite humorous.

Sound: Exaggerated sound effects along with some fitting music

Aaero

Aaero

Aaero is a rhythm shooter that sees players flying through stylized environments while blasting enemies to the beat of electronic music. It is a very challenging and unforgiving game, but also very addictive, and depending on your musical taste has a great soundtrack. The lack of support for things like Steam Workshop and custom songs limits the replay value a bit, but mastering all the songs should keep most players busy for ages.

Gameplay: Challenging, intense, and very addictive.

Graphics: Beautiful and varied.

Sound: Features a great electronic music soundtrack

Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes is a unique blend of rhythm action and shooting wrapped up in beautiful pixel art and a heavy metal soundtrack. The game is challenging, especially on the higher difficulty settings and the music is good enough to put a smile on the face of any metalhead. However, it’s a pity that doing well requires players to watch the rhythm bar like a hawk and thereby miss out on all the pixel art action. Nevertheless, this is a fun game with lots of modes to keep players coming back for more.

Gameplay: An interesting new take on the rhythm action genre.

Graphics: Lovely pixel art visuals with plenty of great enemy designs.

Sound: If you love metal you’ll love the soundtrack

Flying Red Barrel – The Diary of a Little Aviator

Flying Red Barrel – The Diary of a Little Aviator

Flying Red Barrel makes its long-overdue debut on Steam with this update on the classic bullet hell shooter. It features five challenging levels, multiple bosses, and a scoring system that is a lot more advanced than it looks. The addition of modern resolution and controller options is a welcome touch, but the gameplay is still the same as what purists fell in love with when the game was first released back in 2007.

Gameplay: Very challenging, but also very addictive when you get the hang of it.

Graphics: Not exactly cutting-edge, but still charming.

Sound: No voice-overs, but the music and sound effects are good

Dog Duty ( Zanardi and Liza)

Who are you going to call when the evil Octopus Commander and his army are threatening world-pace? Turns out it’s not a marine biologist like we thought, but actually a squad of misfits!

HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed

HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed

Hypercharge: Unboxed is a fun first-person shooter where the emphasis is squarely on co-op. Running around huge environments as an action figurine while blasting all manner of toy enemies is immensely enjoyable and there’s enough content here to keep players coming back for more. The visuals are exceptionally detailed and the design of the levels shows how much care has gone into the game. Some things could be improved, especially for solo players, but overall this is a must-have for co-op fans.

Gameplay: The game has a slight learning curve, but it is a lot of fun with friends.

Graphics: The scale of the levels is impressive and the game is crammed with small details.

Sound: Good sound effects and music, but the announcer can become a little annoying

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is an action-packed third-person shooter that is at its best when played in co-op with some friends. It features a nice assortment of characters, each with their own special traits, as well as a large assortment of undead enemies to eradicate. The inclusion of traps makes for a fun addition to the experience and the action also slows down occasionally for some puzzle solving. While Strange Brigade doesn’t excel in any particular area, it’s still a lot of fun and comes highly recommended.

Gameplay: Lots of action, but best enjoyed with friends in co-op.

Graphics: The visuals look great, but some more variety would have been even better.

Sound: The narrator steals the show, but the music and sound effects are good too

Control

Control

Control is an over the top third-person shooter with a very interesting story and setting. Unfortunately, while the combat can be a lot of fun, thanks to your supernatural powers, it can also become a bit repetitive after a while. We also found that the main story didn’t manage to grab our attention in the same way as some of the things described in the classified file collectibles that are scattered about did. Nevertheless, if you are looking for something that is a bit out of the ordinary, looks great, and offers more replay value than any of Remedy’s previous titles, then Control is worth a try.

Gameplay: Sometimes boring, sometimes chaotic, sometimes repetitive, but also filled with a few great sections.

Graphics: The game looks great if you have the hardware to do it justice.

Sound: The soundtrack could have been better, but the voice acting is top-notch
