A shoot-’em-up without power-ups
The more abstract the game, the more attention developers might want to pay to its look, sound and feel. Jam game Evader demonstrates an innate understanding of this balance—and while it takes place in an abstract void populated by basic geometric shapes, this endless shoot-’em-up looks, sounds, and feels silky smooth to control. You’re welcomed by a catchy soundtrack, slick menus, and professional-quality lighting as you make your way to the top of the leaderboard. Unlike in most shmups, you won’t be firing any bullets here. Instead, your weapon is a laser that you lug about between two small craft.
