Juicy Realm is an arcade shooter developed by Chinese SpaceCan Games as their debut project. The game was published by X.D. Network Inc., known for releasing an acclaimed beat'em up a game called ICEY.
The action of Juicy Realm is set in a newly discovered area of Earth. Humans have discovered a realm of plants inhabited by intelligent, mobile and highly dangerous flowers, fruit, and vegetables. The player assumes the role of one of the scientists dispatched to research the enemy threatening entire human race, and survive this confrontation.
Juicy Realm is a shooter, in which the players observe the action from the top-down perspective. Gameplay mechanics are relatively simple – the game is based on the twin-stick shooter formula. Developers have also added some roguelike elements to their production – thus players traverse randomly generated locations filled with treasures and monsters, never knowing what to expect, except one thing – the enemies always outnumber you, so death is a regular thing. Luckily, on their adventures, players acquire new pieces of gear and weapons that facilitate their efforts, as well as resources to expand the base holding e.g. the store.
Juicy Realm features high replayability ratio, thus players can enjoy the game for many hours. Another incentive to prolong the time spent with this game is the local co-op mode.
The game delivers simple, yet very pleasant visuals. Developers have implemented a rather cartoonish style which well contrasts with the demanding and quite brutal gameplay.
