Intense New Twinstick Shooter Solar Ascension Lands On Android
Fans of reflex intensive arcade shoot em ups like Geometry Wars are in for a treat as an awesome new high octane twinstick shooter called Solar Ascension has arrived that blends together elements of both the Japanese bullet hell ‘Danmaku’ and power up heavy twinstick shooter sub-genres. This balls to the wall arcade arena shooter from developer FURI Games doesn’t have much of a story but it more than makes up for that with action packed spectacle shooter combat where players must face wave after wave of enemy swarms while simultaneously counter-acting their movement patterns. Enemies will quickly overwhelm players if they don’t make strategic use of the random power ups dropped around the map leading to interesting situations where players camp around small hoards of power ups like a greedy dragon guarding its treasure. As players advance through the levels they’ll earn upgrade points based on their performance that can be used to unlock a multitude of new weapons and abilities. If you’re fan of twin stick shooters be sure to take a gander at Solar Ascension, it’s available now for free on Google Play.
