Today’s Spotlight is Earth Atlantis, a side-scrolling shooter by Pixel Perfex and Headup that recently made its way to PC following its console release.
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic Earth following a massive flood. The oceans of the world are populated with mechanical sea monsters, and as a professional hunter, its your job to destroy them in your heavily armed custom submarine. The game’s aesthetic is heavily inspired by old maps from the Age of Sail, when sailors believed that the seas were populated by giant serpents and other monsters. You can check out a trailer above.
Earth Atlantis is now available on Windows PC (via Steam), iOS, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One for $14.99.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
