Warp Shooter is a recently released dual stick shooter by indie developer, Hoosier Games. Currently available on the Xbox Live Indie Games marketplace, Warp Shooter shows just a vertical slice of the full game Hoosier Games aims to eventually make. Warp Shooter is a step above your typical dual stick shooter, aiming to be one of the first 3-vector dual stick shooters. This provides not only your normal 2d movement, but also gives you control of a warp beacon that allows you to move through space.
The rest of the game plays similarly to most dual stick shooters, allowing use of thrusters and a variety of different weapons, including: lasers, death rays, rockets, and a plethora of other weapons. Combined with the introduction of its new gameplay mechanic (3-vector movement), Warp Shooter is looking to be a worthwhile buy. There are also a number of game modes available to players, each with features that can be customized, and if you’re looking for a bombastic experience, you can face your friends in Warp Shooter’s multiplayer mode.
Hoosier Games is looking to expand the features of Warp Shooter in the future, expanding the game horizontally with tons of new game modes and integrated Xbox Live matchmaking features.
Warp Shooter is currently available on the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace for 80 Microsoft Points (about $1). If you want to learn more about the game, you can find out more at the Warp Shooter official website (they also have tips and walk throughs available on their site).
