Gatling Gears is a twin stick shooter from Vanguard Entertainment. Check out my impressions after the break.
On the surface Shoot Many Robots looks like a Contra clone but that is just the surface. Once you peel away a few layers you can see there is a lot more to the game than run to the right and shoot. Shoot Many Robots is a 4 player RPG and the general premise may be run right and shoot, but with a leveling system, items and weapons to collect, and beer to be drank. Yes, I said beer. In this game your health is manipulated by beer consumption, your currency/points come in the form of nuts, and there are silly costumes everywhere. Costumes do more than dress up your character, they change his properties. Some pants make for longer slides, some for better jumps. This game is full of silly hats (you might have to wear them all for one of those achievements, or possibly just dress like your friends) although, I did feel like the controls of the game were a little off, as it is an early build and I can look past that at this point. I can say I am very much looking forward to giving this game a longer look. I think playing it 4 player with some good friends will really elevate this games addictive qualities.
