Target Acquired: Remote Life

Remote Life, from Next Game Level, is a horizontal shmup with twin stick shooter controls, set in a dark Giger-esque alien hellscape. You take on the role of John Leone, a pilot tasked with entering a gigantic alien hive that's slowly making its way toward Earth. You have access to an array of 20+ weapons, along with the occasional time-limited options, super weapons, turrets, and mobile assault platforms. In addition to fighting your way through enemies, you must avoid lots of environmental hazards, including doorways that open and shut and fast-moving alien machinery, with gameplay changing up in some levels to allow for free exploration within enclosed environments. The game uses 3D pre-rendered sprites to create realistic environments with a foreboding tone, and some truly terrifying boss creatures.

The game has been on PC via Steam for a while, but it was just ported to consoles, so it's now available for Switch via eShop, PS4 and PS5 via PSN, and Xbox One and X/S via Microsoft Store. Check our coverage here.
