JohnBGunslugs from Orange Pixel is an arcade game. It's an arcade game with guns and shooting and enemies, helicopters jetpacks and tanks. There's lots of destruction, lots of replayability, unlockable characters, and plenty of weapons with which you can cause said destruction. Basically, it's everything you could ask for from a rampaging action game, all packed up in a neat little mobile release with ample amounts of retro-style visuals, music and secrets. There's even a multiplayer mode if you happen to have a physical controller handy!

GunslugsIt starts with a simple mission: shut down the beacons lit up by the Black Duck Army. The story moves you through several new environments, each stocked with its fair share of baddies, all of whom like to shoot at you. You can shoot back, though, and with just as many guns, too! Use the on-screen arrows to move left and right, taping the fire button to attack or the jump button to enter buildings or leap. Much like classic sidescrolling games like Contra, enemies often drop items and new weapons you can pick up and use right away. Standard gun not cutting it? Oh look, a flamethrower! Tired of walking? That looks like a fun driveable tank up ahead. Might as well go for a spin.

As soon as you die in Gunslugs, you start over from the first level. Our protip for the day, then, is this: don't die. You'll encounter several buildings that often have helpful items inside (or just-for-fun arcade mini-games!), like a continue token you can purchase using coins you gather from defeated enemies, making things a little easier. But it's still a stern challenge to stay alive. Gunslugs is the kind of game some would say shouldn't work so well on a mobile device. But given Orange Pixel's extensive experience with sidescrolling retro action games, Gunslugs works perfectly. And with the added bonus of missions, unlockables and plenty of fun secrets, it's one of those games you'll pick up day after day after day, just to see what you can see. And shoot what you can shoot!
