Assault Android Cactus+, the action-packed arcade-style twin-stick shooter by Witch Beam, brings cooperative four-player bullet hell to Nintendo Switch today with new features.
The new Campaign+ mode reimagines the original 25 stages with new enemy wave compositions, rapid stage transformations and challenging amped-up boss fights. Each character has a new costume to unlock. Aim Assist makes it possible for single Joy-Con play and makes four player co-op convenient and quick to set up.
Assault Android Cactus+ debuts on Nintendo Switch with all-new features: Campaign+, new character costumes and aim assist options. Campaign+ reconstructs the original campaign with new enemy waves, more dynamic elements, and amped-up boss fights, all at 60 frames-per-second. Unlock a new costume for each of the nine androids while testing their unique loadouts to see what’s most effective across 25 levels.
While Campaign+ and its new leaderboards are enticing additions for those familiar with the game, anyone can enjoy Cactus+’s frantic firefights with the addition of Aim Assist options. To let players get the most out of the local co-op experience, the game can be played with dual Joy-Con, Pro Controller and even single Joy-Con in any combination.
Recruit up to three friends and start shooting
Lead Junior Constable Cactus and her Android friends as they respond to a distress call and finds a derelict space freighter under attack by its own robot workers. Keep the androids’ batteries charged by embracing aggressive play and blasting hordes in frantic, 60 frames-per-second firefights.
Keep the entertainment going with Daily Drive, which offers one shot a day at setting a worldwide high score in a newly-generated level. Players craving further challenge will find it in Boss Rush and Infinity Drive. Earn credits to enable amusing EX options including first-person mode, visual filters, and the newly re-balanced MEGA Weapons. A new Movie Gallery joins unlockables like Developer Commentary, Jukebox, and Sound Test, making revisiting favorite moments easier than ever.
“Assault Android Cactus+ has something for everyone,” says Tim Dawson, director, Witch Beam. “We hope the fans that have supported us over the years will enjoy Campaign+, and we look forward to first-timers feeling confident with aim assist.”
Assault Android Cactus+ is available on Nintendo Switch for $19.99. The game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese languages.
