Week in Arcade Part Deux: Capsized


A sneaky Friday release hops in for $10.


Embodiment of the indie movement, Capsized, takes a retro themed approach to alien works with steadfast visuals and alluring ambiance. Player corral rocks and other objects with a gravity gun while mowing down voracious aliens with futuristic weaponry. Add in a jetpack and things become out of control fun. Gravity proves sticky, locking the wee astronaut to the ground even on sharpened, inclined ledges. It’s a bit of bother in loosely design combat where flying enemies have distinctive advantages. Rough around the edges platforming with enough personality to garner a pass.
