As a solo experience, this indie shmup won't win many over with its familiar twin-stick formula, but as a couchplay experience it's one of the most fun spins on the genre we've played on Nintendo Switch. Whether in two-player or with five folks involved, Aperion Cyberstorm is another confident slice of shooter fun from Britain's burgeoning indie dev scene.
With multiple modes, hundreds of maps, co-op or competitive multiplayer, and more, Aperion Cyberstorm offers a pretty good package on either Nintendo console. Wii U players are hungry for high-quality games, so this will satisfy. Kudos to aPriori Digital for supporting a wide range of Nintendo gamers.
Aperion Cyberstorm is a twin-stick shmup that's pleasing to both the eyes and ears. It's a pretty decent distraction for when you're on the bus or if you want a quick party game. Unfortunately, there's not really a whole lot of variety in gameplay. Plus, enemies can sometimes have more health than they need, making the experience repetitive. But if you need a twin stick shooter on the go, you could do worse.
