Disclaimer: The campaign was the only game mode available at this pre-alpha stage of the game, with more features, androids and levels to be added when the full game is released.
Developed by Witch Team from right here in Aussie land, Cactus is a game centred around survival, high pressure and quick actions. The game is still under development, but the early access release is still very playable, and of course, extremely enjoyable. Witch Team have done one hell of a job at conceiving this game which, in my eyes, promises to be a great Arcade throwback with its fast paced action, quick levels and character roster.
With highly stylized 3D graphics, the visuals are quite simple, but attractive; I can immediately tell that the art style is timeless, reminding me of older games such as Crash Bandicoot or Ratchet and Clank, which, even though are they are old, they still look good; Assault Android Cactus will definitively stand the test of time.
The music is very enjoyable, with nice futuristic techno beats that match the pace of battles as you progress through different stages of a level. It pumps you up good with adrenaline, and when you fall, the music matches this by slowing down and lowering its volume until you get back up, almost as if the music was playing alongside you. It’s a very nice touch that I definitively appreciate.
