The universe may seem stable right now. At its centre, though, is an everlasting battle between balance and chaos.
In Trestle, you are put right in the middle of it.
You'll fight on the side of blue against the red robot menace on 3x3 grids. To survive, you'll need tactical movement and fast reactions.
Like in Super Crate Box, you'll increase your score here by collecting weapon crates. You'll also swap your gun each time you collect a crate.
The difficulty also goes up after you collect these crates. So, you'll have to face up to new enemy types, an increase in the game speed, and tougher robot armour.
There are turrets that spew laser balls at you and robots that turn the floor into a hazard and fire more projectiles at you.
Luckily, you'll be armed with flamethrowers, missiles, lasers, and bullets. Be careful with the discs, though. They rebound back like a boomerang and will hurt you if you're in the way.
You'll be able to take three hits before dying, and you'll be able to restore your health on occasion. Trestle is undoubtedly, though, a game of avoidance.
With ten unlockable characters and three difficulty modes, Trestle should have plenty of depth. You can expect to play it soon on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
