New Blip: Aerobat

Looking at the Aerobat title, you may be forgiven for thinking that this is some sort of a new-wave take on the Aero the Acro-Bat series... but there is no bat-platforming going on here. Instead, the game takes a page out of Luftrausers' design manual by offering a fast-paced over-the-top shooter where the player has the ability to fire his engines or his weapons, but not both at the same time. However, unlike Vlambeer's sepia-toned blast-fest, developer Thew offers vivid colors, realistic backgrounds, and even more graphical effects to its adrenaline-fueled shootery. Players can dodge around the screen and get up close to the baddies or blast off into the sky and take them out while free-falling. The madness of the gameplay is a bit difficult to describe, so it's probably best to just check out the trailer (below).

Aerobat is coming to PC via Steam, and possibly to Mac and Linux at a later time, although there is no announced release date for the game as yet.
