Developer Anthony Nichols has released The Man in the Cape, a twin-stick shooter for Windows and Ubuntu Linux that boasts a quirky premise and an eclectic soundtrack.

As a superhero, The Man in the Cape loves to perch atop buildings and observe his surroundings. Unfortunately, one particular building owner has grown sick of his antics and has constructed a massive dungeon to punish roof-perching trespassers. You'll have to fight through over 55 rooms to escape, and if the main quest isn't difficult enough for you, the game also includes a Hardcore Mode that features redesigned room layouts.

The current beta version of The Man in the Cape is priced at $2.99, and is available as a DRM-free download.
