Blast Off To The Third Dimension With Warp 5 Overdrive
Prepare yourself old school shoot ’em up fans, Bearded Man Studios’ Warp 5 Overdrive is here and it will melt your mind with its special brand of spatial shooter insanity. A potent blend of classic arcade shooter mechanics alongside adrenaline fueled visuals make this latest offering from the Word Lab developer a must have for any mobile bullet hell enthusiast. With Warp 5 Overdrive all of the shooter genres’ classic staples are present, but their perspective has been completely shifted in order to create a whole new gameplay dynamic that rewrites the rules of the road.
If you were to describe Warp 5 Overdrive as the psychedelic offspring of Space Invaders and Tempest you wouldn’t be too far off. As is the case with many shooters players must pilot a lone fighter against a horde of viciously overpowered enemies who want nothing more than to pound you into digital dust. But this time around the action takes place on the surface of an ever shifting 3D tube that constantly throws tricky obstacles in your path in addition to the usual lot of pixelated invaders that want you dead. It’s this imaginative concept combined with a highly polished game design that give Warp 5 Overdrive such an addicting aura.
Warp 5 Overdrive is a wickedly awesome new arcade shoot ’em up that no self respecting retro shooter fan should be without. It’s available now for $.99 on Google Play.
