Defeat Cyber Fauna In Gorgeous New Puzzle-Shooter Ancestor
A stunning new pixel themed cyberpunk puzzle-shooter mashup by the name of Ancestor has arrived that mixes rapid fire puzzler action with side scrolling shoot ’em up stylings together into one drop dead gorgeous puzzle runner. Created by indie developer SUPERMEGAQUEST, Ancestor is a procedurally generated twist on puzzlers that successfully infuses the genre with fascinating post-apocalyptic action that simultaneously echos both Contra and even Journey at times. In addition to regular hazards players will also encounter crazy boss monsters that each present their own unique challenges to overcome such as a deadly cybernetic bee hive or giant robotic plant that stand in the way of players and some really cool looking unlockables. Puzzler aficionados looking for something a bit more sophisticated will definitely want to check out Ancestor.
