Assault Android Cactus+ is the ultimate version of an excellent game, and a perfect marriage between console and content. It's exciting and intense without ever being impenetrable, and the new Campaign+ feature is a great reason to dive back into the game even if you've already completed it elsewhere.
On the Switch, Assault Android Cactus+ is an obvious winner. Quick action, simple stages, and high-score chasing mean it’s perfect for handheld play. Pop the Switch in the dock for some local multiplay action and everything’s gravy. A twin-stick shooter this polished is proving to be a rare breed, especially since Nex Machina developer Housemarque has strayed from the genre.
Although we would have liked to have seen a more inspired world for the game to take place in, its core mechanics, controls and performance more than made up for it. If you're looking for one of the best twin-stick shooters on the platform, either for the big screen or for handheld play, then look no further. Assault Android Cactus may not be new, but it is polished, well made, and incredibly fun.
