    I appreciate what Witch Beam Games has attempted to do with Assault Android Cactus+ – they’ve created a game that’s accessible to almost anyone while simultaneously delivering a solid, twin-stick arcade shooter.

I created this account just to review this game. I played this on PC when it came out and it is a great twin-stick shooter, and now I am redoing it on the Switch!

    Controls:
    The controls are smooth, especially if you use both sticks. Do not sit still too long in this game, it will make you pay.

    Graphics:
    They hold up well in this port. The bullets start flying and I have no trouble finding my pathway through them, which is definitely needed.

    Gameplay: This is the shining star. This is my favorite game to introduce my friends to. It's excellent for co-op, and watching the sweat bead off their heads as the levels get more difficult is great. The SHMUP aspect of this game has a mixture of puzzle thrown in, so the levels are never static.

    Watch the videos of this game to get an idea, but I love this game, and I hope others will too.

Each level could be beaten in about 10 or so minutes which made it pick up and play. The difficulty was much more on my level.

    Game(s) like: Twin-stick shooters

    Pros:
    - Good difficulty (on normal) as I could actually beat this game
    - Like the different characters and weapons
    - Enjoyed the staged bosses

    Cons:
    - It is exactly what it is - a twin stick shooter. For me this means some quick plays and nothing in depth.

This is a amazing game, i've played only on ps4. Sadly the devs did NOT bring ANY of the changes or updates to older consoles (ps4/xbox) this includes all the Campaign+ content, Character balance changes, Score changes, enemy updates, Hard mode bosses, Infinity drive tweaks, basically everything the switch version is doesn't exist for previous consoles.
    This game is absolutely amazing but ONLY on Switch or PC.

    So if your reading this, then good job, you are looking at the Correct version to buy. Just be weary, they might abandon this version just the same as they did with their previous consoles.

    Still great, just wish they would be honest and give us a reason as to why the fixes aren't coming to previous iterations of the game.

    Switch version is cool though, new costumes. YAY.......
