This video contains the evolution of Shoot Many Robots and the different takes it took to perfect it to the game that is to come.
The game truly reminds me of an updated version of Metal Slug or Contra with 4 player co-op instead of the old school 2. Hopefully this game satisfies my side-scrolling needs since The Behemoth has been teasing us for a while now.
