Product: Super Crossfire
Genre: Casual, Shooter
’s debut on the Xbox Live Indie Games service marked developer Radiangames out as a talent to watch, even if, after several follow-ups released under the same brand, it ended up as the weakest in the fledgling series.
If the original was fun but timid, Super Crossfire more than warrants the additional adjective in its title. It’s bolder, brighter, ballsier, and all the better for it.
It’s a 2D shooter with visual style not a million miles away from neon glow of Geometry Wars, though its mechanics echo the classic Space Invaders.
A decent shooter retooled into something approaching a classic. Buy with confidence
