GlitchSoft cites inspiration from genre classics like Contra and Metal Slug, and a couple of scenes in the trailer above are direct take-offs on boss encounters from Contra III, in particular. Not a bad first impression!
The issue of touchscreen controls looms large, however, as this is a genre that historically requires quick and precise player input. The floaty jumps and unique twin-stick setup should hopefully minimize any potential control hiccups.
Star Marine: Infinite Ammo is priced at $2.99.
