The new single-player vertical scrolling shoot 'em up game from developer NGDEV and publisher Eastasiasoft, Fast Striker, is now available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Taking cues from 1980s classics of the SHMUP genre, Fast Striker has a strong emphasis on its elaborate score system. Players must blast their way through six sizzling stages, big boss encounters, and more than 40 unique enemy types.
“We’ve been shmup fanatics for decade and Fast Striker may be our most accessible title yet,” said René Hellwig, Game Designer at NGDEV. “Fast Striker retains the brutal, punishing difficulty of the best bullet hell games, while also offering options for newcomers who want to enjoy the frenetic mayhem without dedicating themselves to the masochistic practice of mastery.”
In addition to being a digitally downloaded title, there is a limited physical release of the game that includes a region-free physical copy, full-color printed manual, original soundtrack CD, an individually numbered collector’s certificate, and a Collector’s box.
