“We think the best way to develop a game is to get it playable early and keep it that way. We're confident that Assault Android Cactus is fun to play and worthy of peoples time right now, and will only improve. We're thankful to everyone who has wanted to play our game and for those who are sharing their feedback with us to help make it even better!”

“We have one more campaign stage and the fifth and final Boss fight to add. Worlds 4 and 5 will be getting art dressing, there will be an opening cutscene, art gallery, EX options, greater animation variety, better input and graphic options, Steam Achievements, Steam Trading Cards and visual polish across the game.”

Qual é o estado atual da versão de acesso antecipado?

“Our current build contains
  • 8 playable characters (4 unlocked through gameplay progression) and four player local co-op
  • Tutorial
  • 23 stages of our 25 stage Campaign, including 13 finished stages, 4 bosses (one lacking final art) and 6 more in whitebox (lacking art treatment)
  • Infinity Drive (a large, complex stage similar to an 'endless' mode)
  • Boss Rush (containing the first 3 bosses)

Early Access Update 10.5



We're still hard at work on the main content of the campaign, this update adds various audio and visual improvements and tuning changes.

Important! We've reenabled SSAO on Highest visual quality. It is an expensive effect and if the game is performing worse after this update, please check out the Video Settings menu.

Features/changes
  • Transit has received an art pass, Zone 3 no longer has whitebox stages!
  • Venom has spoken dialogue during his battle
  • Infinity Drive has had a tuning pass to improve consistency around boss fights and in multiplayer.
  • Infinity Drive high scores are now driven by Layer Reached, with the score itself only used as a tie breaker. Due to these changes the Infinity Drive leaderboards have been reset.
  • Coral now has a Stage Clear animation
  • Shiitake's mines have received a small damage reduction
  • Lemon's rockets have received a small damage increase
  • Holly's seeker has received a small damage increase at higher levels
  • Video Settings menu has been expanded to allow finer control. Effects like bloom, reflections and image processing can now be toggled on and off directly.
  • SSAO re-added with three levels of quality
  • Colour correction added
  • FXAA anti-aliasing added (off by default)

Fixes
  • Reworked spawn system - dissolving robots should no longer pop out of existence during heavy action
  • Wasps apply damage correctly - previously they were slightly inconsistent
  • Vespula now summons wasps in a pretty, non-arbitrary pattern
  • Fixed Shiitake's railgun not hitting Venom's arms when you were super close

Known Issues
  • When starting the game with "-popupwindow" in order to play in full screen windowed mode (in Windows) you will not be able to set the game to fullscreen mode, but the options menu does not reflect this
  • Native Dual Shock 3 support in OSX is busted. It is possible to work around it using a control remapper that makes the DS3 to emulate an xbox pad or similar, and we are working on a proper fix
  • Shadows are missing on certain integrated videocards under Linux
  • Native Steam Controller support still coming soon
  • Aubergine's singularity effect looks different on Linux. Functionality is fine, it's just distorting the screen in the wrong direction. Been tricky to figure out...

Assault Android Cactus is a very simple game that demonstrates just how important good execution is in game development.

This is a twin stick shooter with multiple characters that have two weapons (one upgrade-able spammed primary, another more powerful attack on short cooldown). The health-death mechanic is bit different because health loss costs you score/weapon level and you only really 'die' by running out of time limit.

The levels work mostly by changing the terrain on the fly rather than having you move towards something. So instead of more traditional 'scroll left' type of map, think of an arena where walls and grounds are changing every now and then.

The enemy variations are pretty good IMO. You got your standard slow dumb cannon fodders to bigger mooks with varying tactics (some shoots seekers at you, some ground pound for shockwave, etc.), swarmers to turrets to verticle missile launching robot dogs, it's got healthy variety in both design and function.

So all of this probably reads rather conservative in terms of mechanics and yes, you probably have seen all of these bits and pieces before but you probably haven't seen them to this degree of polish. Dare I say it, this game plays like indie take on twinstick shooter with the famous "Blizzard polish". Fans of the genre would be amiss to not have this in their library, and for new comers this game is really good introduction to the genre.

Para um jogo em Early Access, AAC é bastante convincente. Muito estável, jogabilidade perfeita, extremamente desafiador e recompensador.

É um jogo simples mas que demora para ser dominado. Para quem gosta de shooters esse é um prato cheio, com balas e inimigos em uma abundancia incrível. A dificuldade para conseguir a pontuaçao perfeita é bem alta, apenas para jogadores hardcore. Mas isso nao é algo ruim, voce comemora muito quando consegue um S+.

O jogo em modo multiplayer local é ótimo apenas se seus colegas tiverem alguma experiencia no jogo, caso contrário ficarao sem saber o que está acontecendo. Entao é bom que eles pelo menos joguem o demo um pouco antes de partir para uma partida multiplayer.

Vale a pena comprar mesmo inacabado, já possui um bom conteudo e é como o vinho, só faz melhorar com o tempo.

A bullet storm top down shooter with excellent gameplay, music, level design, boss fights and unique player characters each with their own weapon loadout and personality. Very fun to play, and game had had constant updates throughout its Early Access stage.

I can't wait for the full version of the game, and uh, more playable characters. :)

Absolutely awesome game. It is a must-have for anyone that loves playing high-quality local coop games, and for anyone else that just likes mowing down endless waves of robots. The game runs silky smooth and the controls are tight. Love the game.

Worth the buy just to see how Early Access can be done right, full stop. But it helps that the game is fantastic, I guess.

Great music, graphics that look like a great PS2 game with perfect IQ, frenetic but highly fluid action that runs well even on a fairly poor PC. One of the best twin stick shooters I've played; controller recommended but mouse works fine. Note the game is pretty hard, and score MATTERS; your "life" is a battery that constantly drains (not by taking damage, by time), and you get battery pickups by scoring. You will have to be good to beat this game.

As for the Early Access, this is how it's done. From the very start it was clear what was done, what was being worked on. The place holder graphics were clearly not final but polished in their own way that it's not quite so jarring to play an unfinished level. More than enough good music to make it feel like a final release, and gameplay is extremely tight.

Overall it feels like you're playing a curated selection of a finished game rather than unfinished chunks of randomness that the creators will polish later. Everything you experience feels polished enough to let real people play, even if it's not finalized it's still playable and not too hard on the eyes, ears or fingers.

It is a great twin stick shooter. It's one of thosoe games you play just to kill a little time or if you don't know what else to play. It would be better if it had a online co-op, I could see it doing very well with that.

It's like Smash TV in bite-sized portions, or one really huge portion if you feel like going for the (not actually infinite) Infinite Drive. You'll probably clear all the currently available maps in short order, but there's no limit to the game's replayability - you can go for the very difficult top ranks, play around with different androids, or just have fun blowing up lots and lots of crappy spider robots. Hyperkinetic + Colorful + Well-Animated + Some Fun Characters = One great way to check out and unwind for a while.

This game is awesome. It's quick, it's fun and you're going to replay levels to try to beat your best score. It's in early access, yes, but if the final product is anything like this, it's totally worth the price. I would like to see the graphics improved slightly (there doesn't seem to be any anti aliasing) and support for more widescreen and HD resolutions (like 1366x768) but it is an awesome game.

The price is a steal and the developers are onto something here. They understand gaming doesn't always have to be serious and we are in this to have fun. This game is fun, colourful and you unlock more characters as you go along. Each character comes with a standard and alternative weapon, but they're all different, which makes for interesting combinations in multiplayer. If you're unsure, there is a demo available, though I do believe you're getting more value than what they're asking for it.

As for the technical stuff, it is a top down shooter, which supports keyboard and mouse, or a gamepad. It has local co-op too so that's a plus if you have friends over. As I mentioned before, the graphics could do with a few tweaks, but it is by no means unattractive. The gameplay is fluid and you will be moving around the arena a lot while gunning down hordes of machines. There are powerups available, which also encourage you to keep moving. The music is upbeat and adds to the fast-paced atmosphere.

I'd give it a solid 8/10, with the hope that the final product will be as fun, or even more so.

Accelerating and radical!
Assault Android Cactus while having one of the weirder titles i've come across, this is by far one of the best Isometric shooters i've seen in years.

Let me start by saying that i adore the cute design they gave these ''Androids'' by giving them different weapons and strategies to have new ways to approach each given level.

The soundtrack is upbeat and really makes things intense as thousands of enemies just drop by out of nowhere.
Oh and the artstyle/design is quite creative and never feels quite repetitive.

Despite being in early access, this game is still alot of fun and is best played with more than one player.

I recomend you to try this game with your friends, toss them a controller and have a blast!

Super fun game and if you have other friends playing the game aswell it can get VERY competitive. Gets addicting and is very rewarding after you S+ that one level that takes ages (I'm looking at you Furnace). Would reccomend to everyone that is a fan of twin stick shooters with elements of bullet hell. Incredibly addicting.
