Warp Shooter reminds me of the tank portion of the old Atari 2600 game, Combat.

Warp Shooter is a two to four person battle royal in which each person controls their own twin stick shooter. You can "warp" jump by using your left stick and the right trigger, and shoot your gun with the right stick. Your "warp" path can also do damage to your opponents; however, it's fairly obvious as to where you are aiming with this weapon.

There are various levels pn which you can carry out your interstellar battles. The fact that you are always playing a human opponent can increase the replay value, but I think the game missed an opportunity by having no single player component. However, if you have some regular couch buddies over to play on your Xbox, spending just 80 MSP on Warp Shooter may make your next couch gaming session an explosive time.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide .

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
