Synth-soundtracked, ’80s-inspired games are standard fare, but I’m giving HyperParasite a pass for its early access launch today. A twin-stick roguelike shooter (with local co-op) by Troglobytes Games, it taps into the rich vein of classic action movie heroes, villains and cliches of the era. Playing as an alien blob, you’re fragile, but can possess enemies to turbo-charge their attacks and use their health bar until it breaks, whether it’s an off-brand Ghostbuster, Robocop or Kyle Reese. After playing a bit, I reckon it’s onto something; think Enter The Gungeon spliced with Broforce. Below, the early access trailer.
