Super Rocket Shootout is a frantic 2D pixel art brawler game, mixing platformer and fighting mechanics. Charming characters, destructible environments, cool weapons and awesome jetpacks make this a blast to play alone or with up to four friends. Twins never have it easy, and it’s no different for Maurice and El Bruto! Frustrated with their inability to execute on their elaborately planned bank heists, they squabble and bicker only the way brothers can, leaving a trail of chaos and destruction behind them. The combat system is both accessible and deep, with super agile jetpack-induced movements, combos, super attacks, counters, extras weapons and more! Super Rocket Shootout is a great way to hang with friends and enjoy the charming game characters, as well as a perfect outlet to release any pent-up frustrations! Jetpack, guns and explosions - Master your jetpack and slip right behind your enemies - Use your shotgun from a distance or at melee range - Throw homing missiles, boomerangs, teleport-bombs and many more crazy weapons Deep fighting system - Use your shield wisely, throw perfect blocks - Build combos and fill up your Super meter - Throw devastating Super Moves, Super Attacks and Counters Lots of content - Engaging story mode, local multiplayer mode, team play - Eight playable characters, each with their own abilities and Super Attack - Eight interactive and destructible stages - Tons of achievements and unlockable extra weapons

Super Rocket Shootout is a bit short on single-player content, but what it offers for the lone rocket-strapping, shotgun-wielding player is a welcome addition to what is, at its core, an excellent party game package. As such, if you happen to have one to three friends available feel free to bump that final review score by one. The over-the-top insane action and laughs you will get with your friends more than justifies it.

Oddly Shaped Pixels did a fantastic job with Super Rocket Shootout.

Super Rocket Shootout brings an unlikely mix of 2D platforms with fighting action inspired by a familiar Nintendo series and it works well enough. Its plot is full of humour, the lifespan may be short but it's captivating and the multiplayer clearly stands out. Where Super Rocket Shootout ends up disappointing is in its too long and mandatory tutorial and on the lack of any online multiplayer functionalities.

The simplicity of Super Rocket Shootout cannot be understated. It's a good ‘ol jump in and have fun sort of situation with the gameplay. It tosses in some goodies here and there for variety, but ultimately it just wants you to have quick bouts of fun. That's a concept I grew up with in the arcade days of gaming and this is a concept that works for me with Super Rocket Shootout. That doesn't mean that I don't believe it can't be more, and it should, but as it stands it's fun. That's why you play games, folks, for the ‘fun'.
