Here is a little shiny nugget I came across the other week which is definitely worth a mention.
Indie studio Adversary Games has been busy crafting their new game Red Cobra (for Windows, Mac and possible console release).
Instantly the gameplay style will seem familiar, but you see, the game is much more on offer than your typical Shmup.
The core of Red Cobra is shooting 360 degrees in a twin-stick fashion. Sprinkled throughout the game will be “Metroidvania” exploration levels as well as environmental and boss puzzles. Objects can be manipulated by picking them up, dropping them, or shooting them. Red Cobra will be heavy on environmental obstacles as well.
…An explorational puzzle shmup with a 360 shooting control, hell yeah.
I’m super excited to see more of this game and will be keeping an eye out for updates.
