Genre: Action

Unleash destruction alone or with your friends in the 2D twin-stick bullet hell Aperion Cyberstorm! Find new Elements and Abilities, and mix them for more destructive power – beat your enemies with plasma-coated spiral rockets, scrap them with electric mines, or overwhelm them off with devastating lasers. Travel to vast hostile worlds in Campaign to find your old team. Push through the factions standing in your way to the truth. Also, with co-operative play, experience an added challenge as the enemies you fight become tougher. Versus is the true test of friendship. Don't lose your focus by collecting power-ups in the map for instant abilities, elements, and maybe, a chance to survive. Versus comes with eight fully customisable rule sets, for quick scraps or longer fights. Go it alone in Free-For-All, or buddy up in Team Battles and share the victory. Add up to four AI players for true five-player battles! Finally, in Onslaught, your enemies won’t stop until you're defeated, so stand your ground. Survive long enough to unlock new maps. Good luck.

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.
