With completely over the top action and some great tunes, the co-op musical bullet-hell game Just Shapes & Beats is now available on Linux.
"Just Shapes & Beats" is a chaotic co-op musical bullet-hell based on three simple things: avoid Shapes, move to the kick-ass Beats, and die, repeatedly. It’s a new spin on the SHMUP genre, adding a layer of cooperation that’s at the core of the game: because everything is better with friends. Play alone or with up to four players, local or online, through the game’s Story Mode or Challenge Runs.
It might not look like much in screenshots but this is a game where you really do need to watch a video to appreciate how good it looks. Take a look at their trailer:
I really do love the look and sound of this one, so do a lot of other people as it's sat with an Overwhelmingly Positive user rating on Steam.
I will likely take a look at this one properly soon, with local and online co-op it should be pretty easy to have some fun with it.
Find it on Steam for £15.49/$19.99/€16.79
