Neoteria Kicks It Old School This Thursday
Who says side scrolling shooters are dead? Turns out, the 90s are alive and well on smart phones.
Vertical and horizontal shooters (shmups, if you will) have been on the endangered species list for roughly ten years, yet they still appear every once and a while, much to the delight of a rabid audience that cannot wait to dodge hundreds of bullets and take down humongous bosses.
If you love this genre, thank developer OrangePixel for keeping it alive with games like Neoteria. Coming this Thursday for iOS and Android, the 2D shoot-em-up rekindles fond memories of 90s arcades, back when everyone competed for high scores while at pizza birthday parties.
Childhood memories aside, this game looks sweet, and we look forward to attacking it and other iOS titles after emerging from our PlayStation Vita coma.
