Welcome to another Quick Peeks.. This week I'm taking a look at a free form arena shooter created by George Thornton. This game has it all: Great graphics, weapon upgrades, power-ups, enemies, boss battles, wingmen, commendations, promotions and much more.

Drop in an see what all of the fuss is about.

I must admit that this game kind of caught me by surprise and I was completely unaware of it's development until just a few days ago when I discovered and wrote about it over on Shmuptacular(video link). The game is what I would call an "open world" or "free form" arena shooter similar to Sinistar in presentation. You start each level with certain missions to accomplish.. upon completion of which, you warp to the next level.. rinse.. and repeat.

Opinions seem split as to the fun to tedious factor of the game. Keep in mind that it's still in beta and the developer is actively changing gameplay mechanics, adding enemies and bosses, adding missions and objectives, etc. I personally had a blast (pun intended.. again) with the game.. and being able to swoop around enemies while plastering them with missiles and laser fire just brought tears of unadulterated joy to my eyes.

Be sure to try this one out.. and if you were turned off by the Sinistar comparison, don't be... it not that frantic. :-)
