Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…
This Week’s Indie PlatformerSubscribe to UPROXX
Munin (PC, Mac & Linux, June 10th)
The latest game to join the crowded indie 2D platformer scene is Munin, a game set in a world of Norse mythology in which you have to rotate sections of stages in order to progress. Not quite as mind-bendy as some indie platformers, but it looks solid.
This Week’s Twin-Stick Shooter
Pulstar (PC & Mac, June 11th)
No, sorry, this isn’t a sequel of update to the cult classic Neo Geo shoot ’em up. This Pulstar is a new twin-stick shooter in which you literally play as a star that has to shoot down other celestial beings. Looks like some simple fun.
