Vibrant twin-stick slasher 'Breakpoint' gives you exploding weapons

By - | Views: 7,800

Enjoy some classic fast-paced vibrant arcade-style action? Breakpoint looks like it's worthy of some attention for putting a nice unique spin on it.

With bright neon graphics, they mixed in elements from the classic arcade games with "modern sensibilities". It's a top-down highscore chaser with melee weapons that…explode? Yes. No ranged attacks, no laser weapons, no pew-pew-pew. Instead you slice, crush, and blast your way through the swarm and when you push your weapons to their breaking point (it's called Breakpoint—get it?), they unleash a big explosion.

This actually looks like a genuinely fun take on all the classics, I for one am looking forward to giving this a go. Will swapping lasers for exploding melee weapons help me hit the high score? Not likely, I'm pretty terrible at these types of games but it looks like you can go out in a blaze of bright glory here.

When querying Linux support on Steam after noticing Linux being added to the system requirements, the developer replied to confirm it's launching for Linux.
