Is­tarted think­ing about Cap­sized again be­cause of VCD: they both star spacepeo­ple, and both are – as the kids say – ‘well physics-y’. This is a 2D blaster about surviving on an alien world. In ad­di­tion to a slew of Quake- ish guns you’ve got a grap­ple and jet pack for hoist­ing your­self, and en­e­mies are happy to man­han­dle you in a way that most games don’t re­ally do. Fights have a sense of slap­stick peril, and this is a well-rounded ex­pe­ri­ence sup­ported by a bunch of ar­cade modes that un­lock as you progress.

It’s rare to have both feet on the ground.
