GOG release: “CRYPTARK”

Alientrap‘s sci-fi shoot-em-up with roguelike elements CRYPTARK blasts through GOG’s DRM-free doors.

There’s something very satisfying about shooting lots of pixel aliens into smithereens, and this 2D indie effort achieves it with aplomb, i.e. flashy explosions, great voice acting, a thumping synth soundtrack and some generally nice 2D graphics. The idea of playing a heavily armed privateer who boards alien spaceships to scavenge and then destroy its core is quite good for some arcade action, and it seems that the crew member talk during missions gives it that extra bit of tension.

The alien spaceships are procedurally generated, and one can enter each mission with quite an impressive arsenal of 70 weapons and items, including frag-cannons, tractor-beams, flamethrowers and nukes. Of course these weapons are needed if one wants to survive the onslaught of cyborgs, robots and defend oneself against the security systems before destroying each ship and getting out alive.

The game was originally released a few months back on Steam, but is now DRM-free on GOG with a 50% launch discount that will last until September 25, 10PM UTC. There’s also the soundtrack you can buy separately.
