Pixel, the creators of the acclaimed indie game, Cave Story, has officially released their latest side-scrolling adventure on the Nintendo Switch. Kero Blaster is an action shooting game from Studio Pixel where you play as a frog who is employed by the mysterious start-up company “Cat & Frog Inc.”
As announced in PLAYISM’s official press release:
When you start the game, you’ll likely be surprised by your skimpy amount of life and your crappy weapon. And when the frog runs out of life, he “enters the hospital” and has to restart from the beginning of the stage. But you can keep collecting and saving up money to go “shopping” to increase your life and carefully select powered-up weapons to take down enemies you couldn’t defeat before. The further you get, the stronger you can feel yourself becoming – and it feels good.
The characters appearing in between stages are the game’s other charm point. You’ll meet your coworker, who is a cat (for some reason), your president (also a cat), and an office lady of indeterminate species. They work like us, slog through overtime like us, complain, get chewed out, and even comfort each other, just like us.
