Mini-nukes, quad-wielded plasma shotguns, huge swarms of deadly robots and a truly killer sci-fi industrial soundtrack. Cryptark should have hit it big, but Alientrap's sci-fi roguelite shooter never quite caught on, despite my best attempts to sing its praises.
It's good that some devs just never stop dreaming. Cryptark is officially getting a sequel, and this time it's shifting to a first-person 3D perspective. Slip into the cozy confines of your absurdly well-armed power-suit again in Gunhead, coming sometime next year. Read on for some details, and a rather snazzy announcement trailer.
Don't know about you, but space is where I get all my best shooting done. Get your laser-light on some of in these stellar games.
Set directly after the end of the original Cryptark, your mercenary salvage crew have hit the motherlode - the legendary Cryptark - a massive, dead alien colony vessel of untold value. Problem is that the government that contracted you to find it wanted you to stand down and surrender your ship, and that just wasn't going to happen. Now you're on the run, and still in the middle of a well-defended (but long-dead) alien flotilla.
Guess you've got a lot more shooting to do.
