about X hours ago from

There are two aspects of contemporary gaming that I love. One is asymmetric play, that is having opposing sides with different units, resources, and even goals. The other is planned, but simultaneously executed movement. Mode 7 has this one down pat.

Super Galaxy Squadron is described as a not-bullet hell, not-impossible, not-hardcore (unless you want it to be) shoot-em-up. But why would a traditional space shooter eschew the “you must die” mentality of the genre? Well, so you’ll buy it and support charity.

Psyche Studio and New Blood Interactive teamed up to release the game in support of Child’s Play, a charity designed to improve the lives of children in over 70 hospitals worldwide. Until 10 a.m. Pacific tomorrow, it’s on sale for $6.49, after which it will go up to its normal price of $7.99.
