I am sure there is plenty of people out there who are looking for an ultra hard, highly competitive arcade racing and aerial combat game. Well look no further as Flowstorm is heading your way and from the looks of it at quite the velocity. Flowstorm is a new title from the development duo of Jenny Nordenborg and Joachim Holmér and it looks to be shaping up fantastically.
Flowstorm is a new skill based 2.5D arcade racing and aerial combat game for both the PC and Mac. You are put in control of a highly agile rocket, however the rocket is very fragile so you must take the corners with caution. The aim of the game is to navigate the course and reach the goal as quickly as possible, this gives its arcady nature with high scoring. There is also a new shooting gallery that has been put into the new web alpha build, which will no doubt add even more fun-filled escapades! Check out the video below
Like all games that take the brutally unforgiving approach the overall concepts are very easy to pick up and play with, however the true skill comes from the competitive side of the game, being able to beat levels in record time whilst amassing fantastic bonuses, this is the true challenge.
There is currently a web alpha version available for you to sink your teeth into, it contains a single level and highlights much of what the game is about, by allowing you to get hands on and die, and die, and die… If you are anything like me at this game, that is.
Flowstorm will be entering a standalone alpha release on October the 12th, which will also include a level editor. No doubt the inclusion of a level editor will allow for some painfully difficult levels to come out of the community and increase the content of this game vastly. This release will be sent out to the top 10 players of each scoreboard of the current web alpha, so if you enjoy the web alpha get serious and make it into the top places in the highly coveted scoreboards before next week.
Head over to the official Flowstorm site here to participate in the current web alpha, with a chance to get into the standalone alpha version! If you love what you have seen/ played so far then please take your time and head over to the Steam greenlight community project here, and vote for Flowstorm.
Now what are you waiting for get over on to Flowstorm and start racking up the high scores!
