Graceful Explosion Machine is a classic 2D shoot 'em up action game, created by Vertex Pop and released on Nintendo Switch. The developers of this game also created a well-received game called We Are Doomed – and old school shooter inspired by classic arcade games.
Graceful Explosion Machine allows players to fly a futuristic space ship. The titular GEM is an advanced, well-equipped vehicle whose pilot is stuck deep in space. In order to find his way back he must face a horde of aggressive Aliens.
Graceful Explosion Machine uses a side view perspective. During the game we must keep moving right and go through more than thirty levels located in four different worlds. Regardless of the place in which we are currently in our main goal is to eliminate hordes of enemies. During the game we can use four types of weapons – blaster, the basic weapon that shoots in bursts, rocket launcher, useful mostly when facing groups of weaker enemies, an energy sword, that eliminates enemies that are closer by emitting energy beam that spins around the ship and a sniper beam which is a laser with a great range. The key to success is to be able to change your weapons accordingly to a situation, perform dodges and counterattacks. All our actions are monitored by a scoring system that is rates our every move – charging a special multiplier gives us a chance to top the current record.
Graceful Explosion Machine, released on Nintendo Switch, stands out with colorful 2D graphics with an unusual style that incorporates geometrical shapes. A dynamic, electronic soundtrack is also worth mentioning.
