Huey Games' Droid Assault is coming to Mac & PC with all the fun of an 8-bit arcade shooter

Huey Games Droid Assault
Huey Games' Neo-Retro series selects retro-style games for physical release on their unique Collectors USB Cassette format!
The Collectors USB Cassette of Droid Assault is an exclusive physical edition of this classic game for PC and Mac (DRM-free), designed to slot seamlessly into your retro gaming collection. This unique format allows space for a lot of additional features including soundtrack albums, artwork, retro archives and more. I have a similar USB Cassette from their release of Hyper Sentinel and it's pretty cool!

The game play is described as reminiscent of 1984's Paradroid and reminds me of Neuro Voider on modern platforms. It's a tactical arcade shooter, with the fun addictive gameplay of 8-bit classics. You can see a few play-through videos on their campaign site. This game release on USB Cassette is being crowd funded via Kickstarter.

Take a look at the campaign page for more info and see if this is a game you'd like to back. The Hewson's have a long history of game development. Andrew Hewson founded of 8-bit videogame publisher Hewson Consultants (Uridium, Paradroid, Nebulus) and 16-bit publisher 21st Century Entertainment (Pinball Dreams, Pinball Fantasies, Pinball Illusions).

We love Hyper Sentinel, also released for modern consoles including Nintendo Switch and are excited to see Droid Assault. Will it make it to consoles? We have no info on that, but time will tell.
