Smashing and crashing its way to Nintendo Switch later this month is Octogeddon, an action arcade title that has caught our eye for a number of juicy reasons.
The trailer above gives a good sense of what to expect here; you play as Octogeddon, a massive mutant octopus with just one mission: destroy the world. As you progress, you'll grow more tentacles and evolve them into even more deadly weapons, taking out everything in your path in your ultimate rage.
Aside from having a nice, comical edge to it in the trailer, and simply looking like a whole lot of fun, the game also grabbed our attention thanks to the fact that it has been made by the folks who created the original Plants vs. Zombies. This humble writer has a huge soft spot for that original game - especially before the series went all shooty shooty bang bang - and we're hopeful that the team's quality workmanship has remained firmly intact since then.
Easy to pick up, hard to put down
Deep customization: Attach different animals as weapons to each of your arms! The combinations are endless, and deciding what to upgrade is super satisfying!
A variety of enemies each requiring different tactics to fight. And boss battles too!
Wreaking havoc and destroying cities as a massive mutant octopus = Great stress relief! Some doctors will agree!
You've played Shoot-Em-Ups, but have you ever played a brand new genre of game called Spin-Em-Up? Dive into this new experience and SPIN TO WIN!
Ridiculously fun and ridiculously ridiculous!!
A listing on the official Nintendo site says that the game will launch on 16th May for $14.99. Perhaps this is one to keep an eye on in a couple of weeks' time?
