Nintendo has just announced that a new retro-style shooter game will be launching onto the Switch this week. Fans of classic arcade shooters are in for a treat as Thunder Striker blasts its way onto the platform with a modern twist. As an added bonus, players can also download and play the old-school version for free.
In Thunder Striker, you’ll take control of a “Striker” who must defend his planet from an alien invasion. The goal is to eliminate the enemies before they reach your base. The game features both a traditional mode and an enhanced mode, which includes motion controls, multiple difficulty levels, and several bonus stages.
The game offers plenty of action and intense boss fights. Players can upgrade their ship by using coins collected from destroyed enemies along their journey. As they upgrade their ship, they unlock new weapons and abilities that they can use against their foes.
Graphics & Audio
Thunder Striker, while maintaining its retro-style look, features updated graphics enhanced by a 16-bit sprite art style. The game also contains several different stages that change with each playthrough for added variety. In addition to great visuals, the game also offers atmospheric music as well as realistic sound effects that add to the overall tension of the experience.
What makes this game even more special is how it utilizes Nintendo Switch’s motion controls to create an immersive experience – something most old shooters lack. Players can employ subtle movements such as tilting or turning the device to better target enemies in order to blast them out of existence.
