Spain-based indie studio Dya Games have a panache for putting a twist on classic arcade-like mechanics, and their game Super Star Path comes from that very same pedigree.
The shoot ’em up is actually mashed together with a traditional color-matching puzzle game. Featured above, you can view the latest trailer for the hybrid shooter-puzzler.
The key here is that in between traditional shoot ’em up boss battles, you’ll have to navigate through hordes of alien spacecraft via blasting the appropriate pathways – through color-matching.
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Dya Games:
Classic color match puzzle meets space shoot’em up action! Hop into your spaceship, open a path through huge waves of aliens and other hazards, and face intense boss battles!
This game implements auto-fire ONLY during boss battles. There is NO auto-fire during puzzle parts for obvious reasons.
- Three difficulty modes.
- Randomized color puzzle stages.
- Intense shoot’em up boss fights.
- Unlock, buy and upgrade new ships.
- Unlockable Boss Rush mode.
- Colorful and polished pixel art graphics.
- Arcade-like FM synth soundtrack.
