Super Mutant Alien Assault is a platform shooter developed by the independent Cybernate studio. The main source of inspiration for the authors were cult productions known from arcade slot machines, as well as the Super Crate Box game released in 2010.
The story of Super Mutant Alien Assault begins when spacecraft take off from the Earth conquered by the title aliens to carry the last surviving humans. The invaders go after them in pursuit, so there is nothing left for the robots guarding the survivors but to try to face them, and thus save humanity from final destruction.
In Super Mutant Alien Assault, the action is shown from the side. The production has been divided into stages, each of which is contained within a single screen. At each level, we have various missions to perform, which most often boil down to the elimination of everything that stands in our way. Of course, our opponents are not indebted to us, and if we want to escape with life, we have to stay in constant motion and avoid their attacks. The pace of the struggle is further intensified by the fact that with time adversaries transform into their more powerful versions, which makes it worthwhile to rush to kill them.
We deal with hordes of enemies using a wide range of firearms, explosives, special skills and perks to give us an advantage on the battlefield. Before you can make use of them, however, you need to get them first, which is made difficult by the fact that the levels are generated procedurally - after each start changes not only their appearance and layout of platforms, but also the location of opponents and equipment waiting to collect.
Super Mutant Alien Assault can be played on its own or in the company of another person, in local cooperative mode (except for the PlayStation Vita version).
Super Mutant Alien Assault has colorful, two-dimensional graphics made in pixel art technique. The game is played to the accompaniment of a fast dubstep soundtrack.
