We’re talking about Arecibo Man, currently in develeopment by Madgarden. Like many other games developed by the team, Arecibo Man is going to feature a dinstinct retro look. Even the gameplay experience has been heavily influenced by some true classics like Robotron and Berzerk, just to name a few.
In Arecibo Man players will be shooting at a lot of enemies in each stage, using dual sticks as the control method. The gameplay experience looks incredibly hectic and though, just like in those classic games that were all the rage 25, 30 years ago.
As the game is still in development, not much more is currently known about it. The basic gameplay experience will surely be enhanced by the time the game is out with some extra features that will make fans of the retro styled arcade games quite happy.
