Intake: Be Aggressive
by Harry Slater 8/5/2014
Publisher: Cipher Prime
Genre: Arcade, Shooter
If Splice was a subtle, meditative puzzler, then Intake: Be Aggressive is its polar opposite - a hard edged, frantic arcade experience that can be over in seconds if you're not concentrating.
It's a game about drugs and loud noises, bright neon flashes, and almost impossible finger-speed. And while it might not have the endearing power to engage that set Splice apart, it's still a great example of confident, atmospheric gaming.
And it's as hard as a bag full of really hard nails. For some the first play will be too overwhelming, but if you persevere you'll find a surprisingly deep game hidden behind the furious sounds and images.
A bright and frantic arcade blast, Intake: Be Aggressive is sometimes a little too shouty for its own good
