Another week has come to an end, and that means it’s time to highlight another indie game.
This week’s spotlight is a 2D platform-shooter titled Intrusion 2 from Aleksey Abramenko — VAP Games. In this game, you play as a commando fighting your way past crazy robots of all kinds and soldiers armed with laser-guns and jet packs… Oh… and more robots.
Everything in Intrusion 2 is physically modelled, so when you destroy a robot or kill a soldier, the bit and pieces that are left of them can be knocked around and collide with obstacles and other objects. You can move around large stones and boulders to create steps and bridges and even break logs to create paths.
Practically everything is interact-able here — including those zip-lines you thought were just for looks.
To make things even better you will eventually get to “upgrade” a bit and run around in a big mech with a graple gun and a gigantic sword with which you can crush your enemies — because really, it’s so ridiculously big that you’re not cutting anything with it.
One thing I should point out about Intrusion 2 is that you shouldn’t expect it to be a breeze — even on the lowest difficulty setting. Sure, you’ll progress pretty well on that setting, but you will definitely be challenged and find some areas that are still nearly murder to get past.
The game is available for purchase and will cost you $10 — Abramenko worked out a distribution method with the Humble Bundle people, so the game will be DRM-free. Yay!
And of course, if you aren’t certain about laying down $10 for the game yet there is a demo of it available here.
