So what is this crazy thing? Assault Android Cactus is a twin stick arena shooter with an emphasis on high pressure and stylish action. Expect screen fulls of enemies, buckets of bullets and high scoring combo chains!

You assume the role of the inexperienced yet enthusiastic police android named Cactus, responding to a stranded space freighter only to discover it under siege by its malfunctioning robot workers. Cut off from the outside and in over her head, Cactus and the androids she recruits along the way must battle through the crippled Genki Star to reach the brain of the ship and put things right before it's too late.

Each playable character has unique primary and secondary weapons, giving each android a distinctive style. The lower damage output of Holly's versatile seeker gun is backed up by the destructive power of the cannonball, while Coral can deploy an omni directional plasma sphere that continues dealing damage even as she switches back to her shotgun.
|ever since the Genki Star was taken over by its robot workers, slumber parties have become dangerous affairs|
Assault Android Cactus is in development for desktop PC platforms (Windows, OS X and Linux) and we do not currently have an estimate for when the game will be complete. It is in a great state though and very playable! We will release more details when we know them!
