Curved Space is an intense arcade-style twin-stick shooter by Only By Midnight and Maximum Games. The game features curved landscapes where players must take on cosmic space-invading spiders. Curved Space features Arena, Survival and Endless modes, and Daily Runs along with a campaign mode. This first look video features the first two levels of the campaign mode, highlighting some of the weapons and enemies players can expect in the game
Take control of one of four Urican demons and blast away enemies in this twin-stick shooter. Unfortunately, the colorful visuals and non-stop action cannot hide how shallow the gameplay is and how repetitive everything becomes after only a few rounds. The inclusion of local co-op and multiplayer modes adds some fun to the game, but there are much better options available for this genre.
Gameplay: Action-packed, but very repetitive and grindy.
Graphics: Colorful, but sometimes too chaotic for its own good.
Sound: Very average
For an action packed, neon fueled arcade shooter look no further than AIPD. Despite the intriguing title the game does not have a story driven campaign mode, but it does have tons of action. The amount of enemy and arena permutations on offer also gives it a bit more replay value than typical arcade shooters. Best of all it features a four player local coop mode, which is as fun as it is chaotic.
Gameplay: Plenty of old school shooting action.
Graphics: The 80s style neon glow art style have been done before, but still looks great.
Sound: Features a nice electronic soundtrack and solid sound effects
Pulstar is a very straightforward arcade shooter so depending on your taste you will either find it a refreshing blast from the past or become frustrated after only a few minutes. It definitely packs quite a challenge and the difficulty ramps up very quickly, so quick reflexes and a bit of luck is required to make the most of it. If you enjoyed games like Geometry Wars and Beat Hazard you will have fun with Pulstar.
Gameplay: Straightforward and challenging arcade shooter.
Graphics: Nice, but it can be hard to distinguish the enemies from the background at times.
Sound: The sound effects lack punch, but the music is very catchy
