Minishoot (Demo)

Reviewed: 27 Feb 2022
Platform: PC

Minishoot (I have no idea why there's an apostrophe in the title) is an old fashioned top down shooter, but it's really highly polished. It's a good example of why the Next Fest works; I probably wouldn't buy something like this by default, but playing it convinced me that I will. Oddly, I would compare this with something like A Link to the Past; there's an overworld, unlockable abilities and dungeons. The dungeons are divided into rooms where you need to collect keys and find your way to the boss, and somewhere in the dungeon you pick up a new ability which unlocks the rest of the rooms. Shooting feels good, the level design was great and there's a decent upgrade system.
