John’s Pick of the Week: Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

A dark and evil star has infiltrated your solar system and taken over the sun.

Fuelcell Games brings to players Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. The game is a Metroidvania 2D game where gamers follow the classic formula of exploring and finding items which grant access to new areas. Begin with just a scanner and move through game gaining the laser gun, a shield, and even a buzzsaw. Fight giant, organic creatures that fill your screen and find ways to circumvent their impenetrability. Enjoy the art style by Michael Gagne who has drawn famous cartoons such as An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and Star Wars: Clone Wars.
