Shoot-up space in a randomly generated universe.
The randomly generated universe of Stellar Interface will be making its way onto the Nintendo Switch this week, with a release date set for January 11th. Lisbon-based developers ImaginationOverflow originally released the sci-fi rogue-like onto PC in 2016.
Stellar Interface aims to envelope the player into a ‘retro arcade experience’, with its bright pixel artwork and rogue-like shoot ’em up mechanics. Players can defeat their enemies using a multitude of unique fighting combos, while the randomly generated enemy formations keeps you on your toes.
Spacecrafts are also available to unlock throughout the game, and with them, new playstyles that can be used to defeat enemies in cunning ways. These spacecrafts also unlock tougher enemies to defeat in brand new formations.
Boasting a classic mode, an endless mode and a ‘lost mode’, gameplay is switch-up-able. In the endless mode, as you might imagine, the player must withstand an onslaught of enemy waves, with multiple bosses at a time. The Lost mode sees the game reach its highest difficulty, where the ‘Overlords’ (like bosses) gain more treacherous patterns, are faster and much more difficult to beat.
If this sounds like just your cup of tea this shoot ’em up will be available on Nintendo Switch on the 11th of January. Stellar interface is also available on Steam.
