Now we're talking. Twin Stick shooter with a very light RPG feel. Skill trees, points to assign, lots of loot drops, and some of the most insane power-up drops to grab in form of Relics. Die and you go back to the start, losing your Relics, and the fun starts all over again.

The shooting is very digital, you just have up and down / left and right. The first few games on a new character are tough, but before long you're wildly overpowered and having an absolute blast. And then you suddenly die. It's great.

I need to get a video of this in action, as there's a lot going on. We're playing at home local co-op, one person Tanking and one as a Spell Caster. First time through I played a Jason Vorhees style chainsaw wielding Red Neck, complete with hockey mask. Power ups included calling in the Good Ole Boys in a truck which drives across the screen shooting at everything Biggrin

Lots and lots of fun.

There's even a Pepsi Max powerup Relic that makes you puke all over the place. Movie incoming at some stage.

I can't recommend this game enough, it's a whole lot of fun but you'll need the 3 level expansion packs to get the most out of it.
