Minimalist bullet hell Null Drifter will hit the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch online shops this week.
The twin-stick shooter is a “simple yet nostalgic” experience, says developer and publisher EastAsiasoft. Action is relegated to a single screen with a series of gradually evolving challenges putting players’ skills to the test. Online leaderboards let players see how they compare to others around the world. Players can also collect coins to purchase permanent upgrades to help them on their journey.
From the developer:
Blast into a 1-bit lo-fi simulation that will gradually train your skills up to become the ultimate space-fighter pilot! Secretly part of the Project Starship world, this twin-stick shooter is designed to prepare pilots for their mission against the awakened forces of the void. By slowly introducing new challenges and more frenetic battles, the Null Drifter simulation will push the limits of any pilot to the next level!
