“VIDEOBALL combines our favorite elements of old arcade shooting games, modern first-person shooters, and modern real-time strategy games with the depth of soccer, basketball, hockey, football, and rugby. In VIDEOBALL you maneuver a player using directional buttons or either of your controller’s analog sticks. Press any button or pull any trigger to launch triangles at balls or other players. Shoot a ball to push it. Shoot a player to stun them. Hold any button to charge bigger shots. Bigger shots push balls harder. Push the ball into your opponents’ goal to score a point. Hold a button long enough to build defensive blocks. Shoot defensive blocks to destroy them.”

Tachyon Project

TachyonProject

“Tachyon Project is a dual stick shooter where we’ve taken concepts from the classic shoot’em up genre and tried to adapt them to the dual stick shooter genre. In Tachyon Project the player will find the gameplay versatility and speed traditional to dual stick shooters but with the variability in weapons and enemies that you usually find in shoot’em ups. The variety of weapons, secondary weapons and perks allow for hundreds of combinations for your ship. That, along with the number of different enemy types provides a lot of gameplay variety that is something quite unique in the genre.”

Q.U.B.E Directors Cut

QUBE

  • Developer/Publisher: Toxic Games/Grip Games

  • Visit: Website – Steam page

“A new Director’s Cut of classic indie puzzler Q.U.B.E is here, and this time the mind bending gameplay will be accompanied by a completely new story by award-winning writer Rob Yescombe. 

Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut is the definitive version of the brain-twisting first-person puzzler. Using special high-tech gloves to manipulate cubes in the environment, the player solves an array of conundrums – from physics-based challenges; to 3D jigsaws; to platform-based trials.”
