Green Man Gaming
...is the modern-retro styled Shoot-Em-Up from one-man game studio, Psychotic Psoftware.
Spanning vibrant locations to a monster soundtrack, Power-Up thrusts you into battle with a diverse range of fighters, freighters and titanic level guardians. If you loved retro SHMUP classics like R-Type, Hellfire or Project-X, you'll get a real kick out of Power-Up's slick, detailed visuals, challenging gameplay and impressive arsenal of weapons.
The Earth is doomed! As you pilot the prototype fighter, Weapon-F through the debris of your vanquished escape shuttle you come to realise that you are the last human alive. You alone must take on the army of reptilian monsters responsible for the destruction of humankind. You alone must carry out your final mission... Revenge!
Power-Up was released on XBLIG to critical acclaim for its "smooth-as-butter" playability and its RPG-like weapon system, not to mention its formidable bosses and belting music!
