Pull that metal slug out of your abdomen and enter today’s contest for a Switch copy of Omega Strike.
As much as I love mascot platformers, quirky Japanese shit, and extreme sports games, I’d have to say that sidescrollers are my favorite types of video games. Nostalgia probably has a lot to do with that, but punching, shooting, and jumped your way from left to right (and sometimes back right to left) is the quintessential gaming experience to me.
Omega Strike looks right up my alley. Come win a Switch copy and join me in admiring it!
Omega Strike bills itself as an action Metroidvania, which makes sense considering you can explore a huge interconnected world, find treasure to boost your arsenal, fight bosses, and action-platform your way around hazards and enemies. I’m no scholar, but that seems to check out. There’s a story about an evil doctor and mutants trying to take over the world, but the best part about stories in games like this is they’re a great excuse for the devs to make giant mechs infused with weird biological/organic shit as level bosses. As I said, this looks right up my alley.
Game features include:
- Explore a vast interconnected world with seven unique areas
- Three playable heroes who each have their own special abilities
- Swap your heroes at any time to take advantage of their skills
- Search for hidden treasures and purchase weapon upgrades
- 12 bosses and over 45 different types of enemy
- Soundtrack by Ken Snyder (aka Coda) of Scarlet Moon Productions
