Assault Android Cactus is a PC based indie manic twin stick shooter in the classic arcade tradition

Pick from a colourful roster of synthetic heroines and dive in guns blazing against a mechanical army in transforming arena style levels where only your skill, wits and reflexes will get you through

Cactus might just be a Junior Constable in the Interplanetary Police, but when she ends up stranded on a crippled space freighter under attack by its own robot workers, she'll do whatever it takes - including conscripting any fellow androids she finds along the way - to reach the brain of the ship!

  • Charge through a 25 stage campaign spanning the ship while dealing with shifting floors, moving stages, wall mounted hazards and five massive mechanical bosses

  • Boot up the Infinity Drive and cut through as many layers as you can while facing escalating waves in a rearranging, adaptive arena

  • Engage local Co-Op and take up to four players across all game modes. (keyboard and mouse can be mixed with gamepads) Play multi-player from start to finish against an amped up enemy count

Assault Android Cactus is the first game of indie start-up Witch Beam, we're a three person team based in Brisbane, Australia. Learn more about us here and check out our Development Blog for more info!

Our game is still in development but is available as Early Access for Windows, OSX and Linux. You can also support us by pre-buying the game through Humble (and directly download the current DRM-free version and also receive a Steam key)

We plan to release Assault Android Cactus on WiiU, Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita later this year.
