This game is like a realtime worms and WeDoTech did a great job at pointing out the strenghts as well as the weak points of the game. For more details you can also have a look at my Hands On a few weeks ago. My advice – get a couple of friends (up to 8), buy the game and then have some fun on LIVE with the multiplayer.
The guys from Manly Games were so nice to allow me to write about my first impressions of Snailien Invasion. I played it for about an hour, first alone and then in local co-op and deathmatch.
Snailien Invasion is a pure multiplayer game – you can play solo, but this is definitely not what the game was made for. I admit I was bit disappointed, because after the trailer I did expect a neat platformer with coop modes. Instead I got more or less Unreal Tournament with Snailiens.
But frustration pretty fast turned into amazement. With Snailien Invasion there is another hot top notch title soon available on the marketplace. Polished to the amount that it could have been an XBLA title and would still look good! Here my first impressions of the game.
Just watch the trailer – this might be a new superhit … it does not look like your ordinary XBLIG title.
It´s from Manly Games and looks awesome!
The trailer on YouTube gives out the following infos:
Snailien Invasion is a 2D platform shooter featuring snails from outer space in a struggle for galactic dominance. Equip yourself with jet packs, grappling hooks, power shields and an arsenal of the most deadly and curiously inventive weapons in the galaxy!
Inspired by the classic DOS game Liero, Snailien Invasion takes the battlefield to the Xbox 360 with full HD support, eight player network games and split screen support for up to four players.
Research over 30 weapons, all with unique uses. Use them to fight your friends, or play solo/coop against never-ending waves of drones in the survival mode.
To be released on the Xbox Live Indie games marketplace soon, expected in early september.
