What is Assault Android Cactus about?
When youre running on battery, make every second count!
Assault Android Cactus is an arcade style twin stick shooter set in a vivid sci fi universe. Junior Constable Cactus is outside her pay grade when she responds to a distress call and ends up stranded on a crippled space freighter under attack by its own robot workers.
Utilising a draining battery mechanic in place of lives, Assault Android Cactus challenges you to think fast and keep the bullets flying, blending the gameplay of western styled arena shooters with aspects of Japanese style bullet hell as you charge head first through transforming stages, massive boss battles and an eclectic cast of characters on the way to saving the day.
The main character Cactus (whereby actually each of the androids is a main character) is just a really cool sow! A real daredevil with a lot of humor. Overall it is very positive that the heroes of the game are all female characters. This is coherent and somehow revolutionary. The game is extremely fun from the game mechanics. It is challenging, but at the same time satisfying and never unfair. The soundtrack is totally great and fits extremely well to the gameplay.
