Space Cows is an absurdly humorous, side-scroll shooter developed by the independent Warsaw-based Happy Corruption studio. This game is the debut project of this team.
The main protagonist of the game - Best Regards - is a farmer who loves cows. When his favorite Betsy is kidnapped by mysterious attackers, there is nothing left for him but to dress up as a cow and get to the kidnapper base. Things get complicated when Best Regards loses consciousness and after some time wakes up on the deck of a space station filled with mutants (or rather mootants). However, his task has not changed - the farmer intends to save Betsy and other trapped cows at all costs.
In Space Cows, the action is shown from the side perspective. During the game, players take control over the hero, who quickly arms himself with a rod with a sniper sight and shooting air bubbles.
The protagonist travels through the stages of zero gravity, bypasses ubiquitous traps and other environmental hazards (from gravitational waves, through fire nozzles, to poisonous mutant nests), and eliminates hostiles led by powerful bosses. Due to the fact that the screen is often full of adversaries, and moving in zero gravity conditions is quite clumsy (which is one of the sources of humor), the main protagonist may benefit from a slow motion allowing for precise shots.
The game is diversified by various mini-games, in which the stake is to save the trapped cows, stealth sequences, as well as the stages in which players get to control a vehicle.
Space Cows features 2.5D visuals. The whole thing was kept in a pleasant and colorful cartoon-like style.
