The recent trailer has arrived showcasing us Super Mutant Alien Assault due out on PS4 later this year. The game already getting high praise on steam sees three fleets of spaceships flee a doomed Earth carrying the last humans in cryostasis.
Pursued by aliens, it’s up to the lowly security droids to save humanity. Taking up arms solo or with a friend, you must dance with death in a brutal and addictive arcade platformer shooter inspired by Super Crate Box and stuffed to the brim with unlockables.
Fighting through rapid fire single screen levels each with a random combination of platform layout, objective, vending machines and enemies. Dodge and weave amongst the aliens to stay alive but don’t leave them standing too long or the ship’s radiation will mutate them into bigger, nastier versions. Only by unlocking and mastering the wild variety of weapons, explosives, special abilities, defense moves and perks can you hope to survive across all three galaxies, rid your ship of the mutant menace and save the oblivious humans.
The official dev team is one person, Chris Suffern, who has been the sole programmer and designer (with the exception of testing and feedback). His publisher, Surprise Attack Games, helped him along the way and by looking at the trailer this looks like a perfect gore fest. Out later this year stay tuned for our review when it drops.
