The Australian developed Super Mutant Alien Assualt is a fantastic looking hyper kinetic arcade platformer that's due for release in the next few months. Which should come as no surprise with a title like Super Mutant Alien Assualt. With randomly generated levels and a slew of weapons and unlocks to choose from, coupled with retro-inspired visuals and great animation, this is a game no fan of brutal, classic, old school arcade action should miss out on.
Taking inspiration from arcade classics and the seminal Super Crate Box by Vlambeer, Super Mutant Alien Assault is an unforgiving dance with death across randomised single-screen levels. The pace is rapid and dodging is as just important as shooting if you hope to survive. Played solo the game is frantic, but with local co-op, a second robot enters the fray and takes the action to a whole other level.
Featuring a near bottomless pit of unlockable weapons, explosives, sidearms, special abilities, perks and defense moves, each single-screen level is a randomised combination of layout, vending machines, enemies and objectives. You'll never know which weapons or grenades will spawn in the vending machines or which special abilities, sidearms, perks and defense moves will be served up. The more you unlock, the more mind-boggling the possible combinations.
Available now on Steam Early Access, where it has received a number of positive reviews, the full release will also be made available on PS4 and Xbox One. And hopefully, as part of someone's homemade arcade cabinet.
