Witch Beam’s Assault Android Cactus Releases This Month


Australian indie developer Witch Beam is gearing up for the release of their rapid-fire twin-stick shooter, Assault Android Cactus, due out on September 23, to an initial PC slather of Windows, OSX and Linux. Console owners hoping for some android lovin’ will have to wait until next year, when it’ll become available to PS4, Vita and Wii U platforms, but it is on the way.

The short of the game is that you play as an android of your choosing, and shoot a whole bunch of robots, filling your screen with lots and lots of colour. Lots and lots of shooting. As a twin-stick shooter, shooting is basically what you do most. Shooting and moving. That’s the short version and all we’re able to say for now, at least until the game is officially out.

Assault Android Cactus is currently available through Early Access on Steam, and officially releases on September 23.
