Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess is an upcoming shoot 'em up inspired by the Strike series of games like Desert Strike, Jungle Strike and Urban Strike and it looks fantastic (and weird).

As a big fan of the classics, putting many hours into the Strike games in the 90s this looks like it was made for me. You don't have to wait long on it either! It's releasing June 21st, which I covered previously, and with the release approaching there's not only a demo available on Steam for you to try but there's also a brand shiny new trailer to show it off:

  • Missions: Play a variety of mission types. Seek and destroy missions feature an escalating threat level as you penetrate enemy lines. Rescue missions allow you to save your comrades (choplifter style). Defense missions feature waves of enemies. Boss hunt missions feature a powerful enemy.
  • Environments: Take the fight to the Reptoids across 4 different biomes and dozens of missions as you look to defeat the Reptoid scum and bring sanity back to the Tri-state area!
  • Command the Weapons of Mortals: The Megacopter is a machine with huge guns, and an even bigger appetite for blood. Exchange Pizza Tokens at the armory, and unlock more guns, more firepower, and more…well….destruction.
  • Unlock the Power of AZ-TECH: The Blades of the Goddess demand blood, and blood you will deliver. Through (somewhat willing) Greg sacrifices, you can unlock the powers of the Goddess that lives within Megacopter. Choose the perfect AZ-TECH pairing for your mission loadouts and you’ll be cutting through Reptoids like a knife through butter.
  • Soundtrack: Original soundtrack by OGRE sound. These amazing retro tracks will get you in the mood to seek and destroy.

Give it a try on Steam now. It has Native Linux support!

And if anyone's looking for something similar in the style of VGA "simulators", I recommend Thunder Helix.

I played the demo and, its okay. It controls like a mouse and keyboard shooter, so with a twin stick joypad it feels a bit off. And if you are looking to scratch a Desert Strike itch, forget it, the controls and overall vibe of the game are not near that one.
