Assault Android Cactus

Crazy name, crazy game

Assault Android Cactus is a name that may initially baffle, but once the game begins makes perfect sense; that's the case with this title as a whole. Bullet-hell shooters like this can look like confusing, terrifying propositions to the wrong audience, but once into the action anyone with quick thumbs will have a lot of fun...

It looks like they stripped down parts of Metroid and Mischievous Makers and stuffed it into an typical animal/mecha esque game.

Looking further into this game, more or less "Gun-Spike/Cannon-Spike"
clone ( which we need more of ). Even to say it reminds me a bit of Megaman Zero during the timed fight scenes along with "Sonic Adventure" when you are inside Robotnik's hide-out.

I understand what you mean but STV have the news as well as the contenders. If anything STV is like "Running Man" the film, only more targets.

Back to Gun-Spike. The thing about SEGA is that they used and started to reuse themes from other games, to even including an merging of themes. With Capcom + SEGA utilizing the typical commercial ficitonal material that is associated with their games. Another reason why GunSpike was playable was because it utilized characters like "Authur" from "Ghouls and Ghosts/Goblins/etc", along with Megaman ( which is just amazing ) including Cammy-White ( being an hero for the first time but still on Shadow-lu side ), and fallen Balrog ( Which takes directly from the Street Fighter II: The movie ( ZOMGSH Street FIghter II )) along with "Street Fighter:Vega".

This game is another GunSpike in the making. However I am glad for the cartoonish graphics and animations. However I wish it was more arcade and not console like. By that CannonSpike does non-stop what this does.

Even so the game looks okay. I wonder how it would look in 2d as well.
