Fantastic looking shoot 'em up 'Sky Force Reloaded' releases for Linux in two days

Posted by , | Views: 8,142

Sky Force Reloaded [Steam, Official Site] isn't your average shoot 'em up, boasting some seriously good looking graphics and it's coming to Linux in two days.

I did quite like the previous game, Sky Force Anniversary, from the same developer which also supports Linux. It ran really well and it was quite challenging, so I'm looking forward to seeing how far the series has advanced with the latest title.

Judging by the trailer, it certainly looks amazing, the ending where the massive plane rises from the smoke looks extremely exciting!

Like all good shoot 'em ups, it will have varied enemy types, massive boss battles, co-op support, an upgrade system to turn yourself into a fortress and more. This time around, it will also feature weekly tournaments which will be battled out across five infinite stages to see who's the best pilot around.

It looks just as nuts as the first game that's for sure. Will you be grabbing a copy?

Def buying this as I really liked "Sky Force Anniversary" on PS4.

I was playing this game on Android. This game was good but damn hard if you won't do micro payments which eventually needed for upgrading your ship.

I hope that won't be the case with Steam release.

The first one is awesome! It's worth it

The Steam release of the original did away with all of that, so I'm sure they will with this one too.

Well this looks like an awesome arcade-game, with some pretty cool graphics. But I wonder how much it will cost... I've spent way too much cash on games lately :/

Same. Just bought The Long Dark , Left 4 Dead 2 , Rocket League on Autumn Sale.

I was rooting for Everspace but i decided to wait until it is officially released.

Devs are really taking their time.

I enjoyed Sky Force Anniversary far more than I had any right to. I don't go in for day/weekend special events, but the single player and local coop was fun. So it's more than likely I'll grab this as well.

QuoteThe price will be $9.99, so a pinky should suffice ;)
