What do you get when you take the fast-paced shooter gameplay from the likes of Nuclear Throne and throw in the cart-pushing mechanics from TF2? Cart Crawlers answers that.
Here's how the developer describes it:
Cart Crawlers is a TF2 themed rouge-lite with nuclear throne style gameplay. Push the cart through several levels with randomly generated layouts and drops to defeat the man behind the machines.
I have to admit, I do absolutely love the idea. I really enjoy shooters like this and Nuclear Throne is a good one to be inspired by. The cart-pushing element certainly adds an interesting flavour to it. Sadly, it's a little on the rough side with the random generation, as my cart got stuck and couldn't move and I saw pickups drop on top of places I was unable to grab them from. Thankfully starting a new game didn't give me those issues and I was able to play it for a while and enjoy it too
It shows a serious amount of promise, so if they keep developing it and get the issues ironed out it really could be something.
Another issue I did encounter, was that the screen resolutions option pickers show up as "undefined". I've reported this to the developer.
You can find it on itch.io. I personally tested it from the excellent itch.io client and it works.
