Assault Android Cactus Review for Xbox One

Twin-Stick shooters have been a ripe genre for downloadable games ever since we got our first taste of games like Geometry Wars, Binding of Isaac, Hotline Miami, and countless others.  This genre’s strengths are in its ability to flood the screen with enemies as you strafe and shoot while avoiding attacks and tight, satisfying shooting.  Assault Android Cactus from Witchbeam delivers these in spades with equally fantastic level design and a varied cast of player characters who cater to different playstyles.  The game was originally released for PC in 2015, but it has just arrived for Xbox One and there has never been a better time to dive in. read more
