17-Bit's Shooter Impresses At Gamescom With Fresh New Trailer

about X hours ago from

I've seen a lot of great stuff here at Gamesom, but 17-Bit's ode to anime and shooters is the best title I've seen today, but you don't have to take my word for it, check out this latest trailer here.

The 17-Bit team is very apologetic about the state of their game, but it's completely unnecessary, because Galax-Z is a blast. This shooter looks a lot like a Japanese anime from the '80s, and thankfully it plays just as well as it looks. It took me awhile to get my head around the feel of the game. Generally, you don't want to roll into battle guns blazzing, because many of the enemies in the game outgun you. It's best to lead different enemy factions into each other and have them fight themselves and then pick up the strays.

Opposing pirates have a shield that only turn on in front when they are alerted, so you'll need to sneak up on them and kill them with missiles before they spot you. Or somehow loop around them and hit them from behind. Bugs on the other hand, are pretty dumb, so you can lead them into a pack of Imperials and have them duke it out. It's good to use floating debris as cover, and even turn off your booster and coast past enemies. If you're quiet and enemies are looking right at you, you can sneak by them.

Adding Light RPG Elements

I was a big fan of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and its top-down shooting, co-op puzzle-solving adventure. Thankfully, it looks like the upcoming 4-player follow-up is going to give me even more to love. It feels good to love again.

The basic setup for the game is that the ancient Egyptian god Set and his brother Osiris fought ages ago, but after Set was trapped in another dimension for a few millennia, the world is able to progress in relative peace. However, after Lara Croft and a rival archaeologist named Carter stumble upon the staff of Osiris, they accidentally awaken Set (of course) and put the world in danger of annihilation. Thankfully, Osiris' wife Isis and son Horus are also awakened, and they jump into battle.
