Do you like bullet-hell games? Outskirts is something you absolutely need to look at. The idea is clever and it's quite challenging.
River City Ransom: Underground released for Linux originally in February, sadly the developer said they would send over a review key and never did. Now it's available on GOG so I've had a chance to take a look.
The Crowded Party Game Collection, a game where you and up to 10 friends can take on 7 arcade-inspired mini games. The key thing here, is that you can use an iOS, Android or Windows phone device as a gamepad.
The self-described score attack type game involves controlling an entity that absorbs universes to grow.
If fighting hordes of enemies with fancifully implausible-but-shooty ranged and melee weapons is what you desire in life, Woodpunk might satiate the need. The developers have recently announced Linux support and are looking for enough votes on Greenlight to proceed.
I've been sent in details about 'Lil Tanks', which is an action-packed side-scroller with some really great retro visuals.
After chatting privately with the developers of Hyper Sentinel to give them some advice, they have now put up their official Linux demo and they have also hit their funding goal on Kickstarter.
Ghost Blade HD was a day-1 Linux release and looks like a good one if you're a bullet-hell fan! It even has co-op support to bring a buddy along.
NEXT JUMP: Shmup Tactics sounds like an interesting game. It's done in the style of old shoot 'em up games, but turned into a turn-based strategy. A tactical shoot 'em up, if you will.
Neon Drive was sent in by GOL reader Cybolic as they have officially released their Linux version. The developers say it will make your brain melt and they aren't wrong.
The developer of Ellipsis sent in a key for us to check out what they call an Avoid ’Em Up and it's surprisingly good.
Overdriven Reloaded, a vertical-scrolling shoot 'em up is now on Linux. We have quite a few games like it, but this has 4 player co-op so it might just be enough to hook some in.
Switchcars is a game I've been putting off trying for quite some time to wait for it to get polished up some more, but now I've jumped in at the deep end of this arcade style roguelike.
Voxeliens, a game I haven't seen much on since I wrote about it back in 2012 has officially gone open source a few days ago. It's a retro-style arcade shooter and it's essentially a 3D voxel-based version of Space Invaders.
Try Hard Parking, is a new indie game from developer gearspecs that promises a rage-inducing 80s styled parking game.
