Developer Apt Games’ new arcade shooter, Terror Squid will release sometime this Spring 2020.
Developer Apt Games recently announced their brand new arcade-style reverse bullet-hell shooter Terror Squid is coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring 2020. The announcement was made through a bizarre and rather terrifying new trailer. Check out the video below.
What is the game’s synopsis?
Terror Squid is an easy to understand but difficult to master arcade game in which every enemy projectile releases from you, the Terror Squid. Set around a doomed planet, you’re a cosmic chaos entity spinning around the world emitting all manner of hazardous projectiles. What goes around comes around, as your inky bullet reign of terror circles around the globe creating an apocalypse of your own design. The game forces you to have to think fast and strategically as you weave through a bullet hell of your own making. The goal is to survive for as long as you possibly can, desperately trying to avoid being hit by the projectiles you just fired. If you survive long enough, you can release a blast of ‘dark energy’ which blows up any projectiles nearby. You can see this taking place in the gameplay trailer below.
“It’s such a simple premise. But we fine-tuned it to have plenty of tactical, score-chasing depth, and playthroughs are brief and tense enough to feel like an epic odyssey in the span of a minute,” explains Terror Squid creative director Syver Lauritzsen in a press release. Not to mention, the game seems as though it will be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch. The console’s compact size lends itself to sleepless nights spent in bed battling just one more level, when players should be sleeping. “The true terror is how much time you’ll procrastinate on work playing the damn thing!” he added.
Check out the game’s key features below:
- Create your own bullet hell – Conduct your symphony of destruction. Dodge tantalising bullet patterns of your own design. Survive for long enough to release a primordial blast of dark energy, detonating your projectiles in gloriously satisfying chain reactions.
