Blasting away Viruses on a microscopic level has never been so much fun!
Shin’en Multimedia came out with their first PS4 game and although it plays out in a microscopic world there is very little that is micro about this game. You might think that a Twin Stick Shooter game is easy to make but there are some fine lines with this type of genre. The game can be to “busy” or complicated or and the other side to simple and boring. The mix has to be right!
Nano Assault Neo X has a great balance, the first level starts off slow and gradually builds up until chaos reigns down upon your little ship. After every level you can buy some much needed upgrades and weapons for your ship and if you have enough points you can even buy an extra life. The idea for this game is different and I found it very refreshing and exciting as my Wife is busy study Micro Biology, she was glued to the screen as well instead of glued to her books ;p
I think there is a great story that can be added to this game and so much more levels! It is the only disappointment I have. The controls work great and with the stage being on a cell you will surely find your self moving your body to try and get that advantage view over an edge “not that it will help” but that is how I lived myself into this game. You can play 2 player multiplayer as well which doubles the fun and even compare your score to your friends which adds that little bit of competition element.
