    The one downside to a gorgeous, fast-paced whirlwind of constant activity is that there's not much of a story to go along with it. I don't know about you, but when the end result is as much fun as Assault Android Cactus, that's a trade-off I have no problem making.

    This is easily one of the best twin stick shooters I’ve played in years.

    It's great to see developers continue to pour their best effort into twin-stick shooters, even if the concept seems dated compared to other genres. Assault Android Cactus is a quality entry in the genre, filled with personality, excitement and creativity. The amount of characters available is impressive; the co-op factor is insane but fun; and the gameplay doesn't stop when it comes to challenging your high-scoring skills.

    Assault Android Cactus is a solid, memorable twin stick shooter. It has mechanics in place that make it accessible and fun for all. Its visuals and story unfortunately though, leave a lot to be desired.

    This is a twin-stick shooter that adds complexity and depth to a genre that typically has no use for either.

    A fantastic little twin stick shooter, that is well designed, full of character and has some good variation. The characters you play as feel unique and varied as well as the enemies you face. Boss battles mix gameplay up and offer some challenging moments. I appreciated the extra modes and ranking at the end of each stage.

    First of all, I'd like to note that game runs smoothly on PS4, so I cannot see why other reviewer says otherwise.
    I played demo of PC version
    First of all, I'd like to note that game runs smoothly on PS4, so I cannot see why other reviewer says otherwise.
    I played demo of PC version first and was super excited for this game to come out on PS4. Game offers dynamic twin-stick shooter gameplay with tons of enemies appearing on screen, accompanied with superb soundtrack. Every android has unique weapons and character, some of them are unlockable by beating bosses. Story is simple but interesting to follow, spiced up with funny situations and dialogues. Game also offers infinite waves mode and up to 4 players couch co-op (online play is not included). There is also some unlockables to keep you busy, if you into such things. I quite pleased with this game overall and recommend it to anyone who love dynamic twin-stick shooter gameplay and cute characters.

    Most fun I've had in a while. I don't normally get into these games, but the characters have meaningful differences and unique personalitiesMost fun I've had in a while. I don't normally get into these games, but the characters have meaningful differences and unique personalities that make it feel special.

    Frame rate is solid even when screen is full of enemies, trophies are fun to obtain, and music is jamming.
    Support good, small games like this.

During busy moments the game's frame rate drops dramatically on PS4, screen tearing and stuttering in every boss battle and in most of the campaign levels. If you don't mind screen tearing and stutters , ENJOY!!!!!!!!!! Expand
