A shoot-’em-up with­out power-ups

PC GAMER (US) - - EXTRA LIFE - DOWN­LOAD AT bit.ly/EvaderGame

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.
