Bullet-Hell Shooter Assault Android Cactus Launches for PC on September 23

Australian indie studio Witch Beam has announced the release date for Assault Android Cactus on PC.

The game will leave Steam Early Access for its full release on September 23rd. Featured above, the game’s opening movie was also revealed, to give you an idea of what sets up the twin-stick shooter’s craziness.

You start off with being able to choose from a total of four androids (with up to four player cooperative play) to play as – each with their own unique weapons and abilities. There are five more androids to unlock as you progress, although one requires a total game completion.

The game is also coming to Playstation 4, PS Vita, and Wii U sometime in Q1 of next year, however a solid date for the console ports hasn’t been confirmed.

You can find Assault Android Cactus here on Steam.

    Game looks great and I’ve been waiting for a while for it to leave EA, but the voice acting is Winx Club tier.

    In their defense, the dev team consists of like four dudes, so I don’t think they really had much of a budget for voice acting.

    That aside, the game is fantastic and is a pretty great fusion of twin stick shooter and bullet hell. Although the difficulty curve is a bit more smooth and gradual compared to most bullet hells.

    It’s also one of the few examples of an early access game done right. I bought the game very shortly after it went up on Steam, and there’s never been a moment where I regretted buying it.

    Really glad the game is finally getting its official release. I hope it gets more attention after that, as it certainly deserves it.

    Oh yeah, I’m not too worried about the voice acting, to be honest. Twin stick shooters are all about the delicious action.
