Pineapple Smash Crew
Having now reminded everyone that mediocre shooters will find you even when you don’t want them to, I’d like to give over the rest of this page to games that are nice. Pineapple Smash Crew is nice: a chunky cartoon Cannon Fodder where you fling space marines into alien-infested derelicts and try not to get them killed. The heart of the game is found in your secondary weapons, like remotecontrolled rockets and grenades, with each of your squad of four able to carry one at a time. There’s finesse in managing the use of each, but also reliable arcade charm in simply flinging whatever’s to hand at the nearest monster. Lovely music, too. Very much better than Colonial Marines.
Charming explosions, good WASD-feel.
