Assault Android Cactus, a game we reviewed a couple years ago, is making its way to the Xbox One in time for the Xbox One X launch on November 7th.
A twin-stick shooter, the game will be getting native 4K 60fps support for the Xbox One X. Instead of having lives like a lot of other games, the player controls an android heroine with character-specific primary and secondary weapons and a continuously draining battery. The only way to recharge the battery is to continue fighting, killing enemies, and gathering power-ups.
“The spirit of our game comes from a love of the arcade culture we grew up with,” says Santana Mishra, director, Witch Beam. “I’m excited Xbox One owners will get to experience Cactus’s non-stop action, and in glorious 4K HD on the Xbox One X.”
Assault Android Cactus features a number of modes including endless waves of minions in Infinity Drive mode, a Boss Rush mode, and daily challenges in the Daily Drive in addition to 25 levels of gameplay.
As I said in our review of the PC version:
I’ve never been a huge fan of twin-stick arcade shooters, I tend to get frustrated and/or bored of them quickly. Assault Android Cactus is an exception to this and the gameplay, different modes, and fantastic graphics will be sure to keep me coming back and picking it up to play here and there for some time to come.
I can only imagine how fun it will be in glorious 4K on a large projector screen.
As mentioned above, the game will release on November 7th for all Xbox One consoles for $14.99USD. A 30-minute trial of the game will also be available so gamers can try before they buy. The game is also available on PlayStation 4, Steam, Mac, and Linux.
