  1. Zombie Party

    There have been a lot of twin stick shooters popping up recently. Many follow the same formula, run around and shoot everything that moves. Black Shell Media has released Zombie Party by Peach Pie Productions – a twin stick shooter that has a side scrolling mode, a pet sanctuary, and more enemies that aren’t zombies than are. Zombie Party is an RPG with rogue like elements in pure retro rampage form. The game features 4 actual game modes for you to choose from – Adventure, Dungeon, Arcade and Death Match. Adventure sees you facing wave after wave of enemies interspersed with bosses until you die. Dungeon lets you explore an area, kill enemies and descend into the dungeon and kill the bosses. Arcade is the side scroller which sets you against zombie hordes. Death Match pits you against AI players or other local players to the end. Actually, all the modes are better with friends – unfortunately, you can only play local multiplayer. One of the cool things about the title is the sheer amount of weaponry that you can find and use. There is a wide range of melee weapons, firearms, grenades, bombs, runes, potions, and artifacts. You can even find and rescue pets that will help you in your fight against your enemies. Some will gather supplies for you while others will attack in your stead. The graphics are pure retro gold. Enemy design is fun and playful. Colors very depending on the area you are in, but are mostly bright. Things light up even more when you start firing weapons like the rainbow gun. The music is a chip tune concert for the heart. You will find yourself tapping your feet as you lay out your foes. Zombie Party is out now on XB1 and Steam. You can pick it up for $9.99 and get started slaying right away. As much fun as it is to play solo, grab a friend or three, gather around the tv and just blast away. 9/10
  2. Transcripted

    No matter where you look, you will see fusion. Strawberry-kiwi lemon aid, Tex-Mex food, sports-utility vehicles, Frisbee golf, and of course Cat-Dog. The world of mash ups has come to video games with the Plug in Digital release of Transcripted – a twin stick shooter / match 3 game. In this game you control a nano probe that is used to combat disease. You can upgrade your probe and weapons to fight ever more powerful pathogens. You defeat the viruses by destroying their DNA-like strands by matching 3 like colors. You will have to do this while evading attacking from defensive cells. Game play is a mix of twin stick shooter, match 3 and it even has RPG elements thrown in. You pilot your probe through different organic samples and try to destroy their building blocks. This is done by grabbing blocks that drop once you destroy some of the defensive cells and trying to match enough pairs of 3. As you progress, you can use research to increase the stats of your nano probe. Boost your speed, fire power, shields, and even the handling. But, if the game is still too challenging, you can lower the difficulty of both the shooter and puzzle aspects independently. As you progress through the game you will meet new and more powerful enemies. Also the “DNA” strands will move faster, so you will either have to have to have quick aim, or shoot blocks into receptors to slow them down temporarily. There are other elements that get introduced that add twists to the completion of levels. The graphics in the game are a little less than optimal. While the colors in the DNA strands are bright, the individual blocks tend to blur. This doesn’t make the game unplayable, but it does detract from the look a bit. There is also a disconnect with the music. It seems like in spots when the game gets frantic the music will take a mellow turn and vice versa. Transcripted is out now and can be added to your collection for about $8. This is an interesting mash up of genres, and the independent difficulty adjustments will make sure that you will get some decent mileage from the title regardless of your skill level. 7/10
  3. Tango Fiesta

    As a kid growing up in the 70's and 80's I think I was exposed to some of the greatest movies and games that were ever released. The proof I have of that is that today Hollywood is remaking most of the films, and the game industry is paying homage to the games and the movies on a regular basis. The latest title to do this is Tango Fiesta by Spilt Milk Studio, a top down twin stick shooter that recalls the days of Smash TV and the co-op play of Gauntlet. The game is set in a world where the events of almost every 80's adventure movie actually happened to a man named John Strong, it is up to you to prevail against the forces of evil. Commando, Predator, Die Hard, Robo Cop, Running Man, and more are referenced. You even get to play as characters modeled after the heroes of those iconic flicks. There are 6 different characters to choose from as you start out your adventure. There are 2 seperate game modes to pick from Arcade and Story Mode, each playable with up to 4 players local co-op. The modes are basically thee same, Story takes you through the 5 worlds in order while Arcade mixes things up a bit. Each world consists of 3 different levels and a boss. In each of the levels you must complete a specific objective - either destroy some buildings, helicopters or shut down communications towers. The other main difference is that in Story mode you are able to pick a primary, secondary and throwable weapon - arcade you are limited to primary and throwable ( your secondary is automatically chosen for you ). The weapons locker in the game is a bit limited at the start of play, but as you play through the game you will unlock a more powerful arsenal. Using each hero, getting a specific number of kills, killing off bosses will all increase your fire power. But this increased popwer doesn't come cheap. Each new weapon will have to be purchased with gold that is recovered from enemies that are killed in game. With several weapons costing over $100k, and only getting $200 for most kills, there is a bit of grinding involved on getting some of the best guns. Game play is pretty straight forward. At the start of each level you are shown the objectives you need to clear before you are dropped into the level. It is then up to you if you want to just run to them, clear them out and move on, or spend time destroying lots of enemies that will keep re-spawning. For the most part you won't have to worry about health or ammunition, as you will see certain enemies with little flags above them saying that they will drop the different resources. But unfortunately they don't always drop what you need, or anything at all. This doesn't usually present a problem until the later worlds when you start to become swamped with enemies. Tango Fiesta can be played solo, but it is exponentially better the more friends you have playing with you. Not only does it make it easier to clear the higher worlds, but it is just a lot more fun slaying throngs of foes with your buddies. But bringing friends along for the ride will present a few problems as well. Friendly fire is on, so you have to make sure you knkow where you are shooting at all times. Not only that, but you all play on the same screen, so if someone falls behind, they will fall off the screen. This can be a bit disorienting for them, so you will have to make sure that everyone keeps up. And with some characters markedly slower than others, this can take a little extra team work. Unfortunately you will have to gather your friends in your game room to play because the title lacks online multiplayer support. No matter if you are looking for a game to play with your friends for a while, or something to pick up to relive the glory days of 80's action flicks, Tango Fiesta will scratch that itch. It is available now on XB1, PS4, and Steam. The title has a sticker price of $9.99. 7/10
