After trialling their latest titles at Playup Perth, not to mention testing the tenacity of their players, Kalgoorlie-based studio Outback Pixels has officially released Thwart GEO! It may look simple, but don’t let those geometric enemies and stylish backgrounds fool you. This pleasant-looking mobile game is ready to challenge and entertain, so it’s time to get those thumbs into shape.
A retro-arcade-style shooter reminiscent of an era when games were easy to play but hard to master. The super simple controls make a challenging and frustratingly addictive game that will push your steering and aiming skills to the limit! Avoid, trap and blast different types of enemies in a mesmerizing geometrical world and warp out of dangerous situations by simply shaking your device.
Thwart Geo is available now for free on both iTunes or Google Play. So put your thumbs and patience to the test, and set off into a shape-filled space.
