Just when I thought I had enough of twin stick shooters, along comes Pineapple Smash Crew. Is it any good ? Yes. Yes, it is. Is it the best one so far ? No.
It's an indie game with a cute, retro look. And since it's an indie game, you can't really compare it to the bigger (retail) titles, qualitywise. That doesn't mean it isn't any good though.
So, like practically all twin stick shooters, you just run around with your crew and kill enemies and objects. Destroying stuff will earn you XP, credits and grenades, which you can use to eventually upgrade your grenades or buy reinforcements when necessary. Grenades are actually an important part of the game. Almost every enemy leaves behind a random grenade. These range from healing grenades to missile grenades, and they're fun to use and the key to success as the missions get increasingly harder.
Missions are randomly generated, maps as well. But the designs are so similar that it's hardly noticeable. It will keep you coming back though.
