Target Acquired: Unichrome

Unichrome: A 1-Bit Unicorn Adventure, from Super8bitRafa, is a platformer-shooter set in a glitchy world and starring a cute rainbow unicorn named Itchi. After she and several other animals awaken from stasis, the power-hungry Century steals a set of color-coded gems, thereby draining color from the world. Itchi must blast her way through TV heads and other enemies as she makes her way to each of Century's minions to defeat them and collect their gems. Along the way, she must complete platforming challenges while avoiding spikes, dashing over bottomless pits, and swinging through the air with her grappling hook... but most of her problems are solved with guns and sass. Throughout the game, Itchi finds an array of weapons, including a shotgun, machine gun, and flamethrower, each of which can be upgraded individually, allowing her smart-aleck mouth to write checks that her feisty ass can indeed cash.

The game is now available for PC via Steam and Itch, Switch via eShop, PS4 and PS5 via PSN, and Xbox One and X/S via Microsoft Store. Check our coverage here.
