Anomaly (Great Twin Stick Shooter) - FREE!




Little bit Geometry Wars in arcade mode with some exploring in the campaign. Good stuff.

Yeah, I know it's been free before, but it's been 6 months, and it's never been posted.

Always liked this one, except for two things:

1) Those really cheezy almost-instant-death door/gate things
2) Some of the bits you need to blow up are the same color as the walls and can be hard to see.

Definitely worth picking up for free if you're a dual-stick shooter fan. It's a little unforgiving, but one of the few DSS games with levels (that's maps, not waves...)

I think there are better arcade shooters, Pew Pew and AbstractWar to name two. Having said that, Anomaly surprised me and was alot of fun. For a game I hadn't heard of (and that I got for free), I'll hold onto it for awhile. Thanks!

Not a bad game. Only minor quibble, the ship has a little more hand-drawn/cartoony look where all the rest has a more modern/Geometry Wars flavor. Ship looks a little out of place.

I know, kind of a stupid gripe. But it's a good game. Thanks for making it free!
