An inspired new take on Doom style shooters, as seen through the prism of bullet hell shoot ‘em-ups and roguelikes.

Mothergunship on PC, PS4, and Xbox One is a surprisingly tense and fast-paced shooter that blends the best of classic FPS gameplay with a hardcore roguelike.

The game doesn't quite end when all of the story missions are over. Other than the endless mode (which is where the gun combos can really get crazy), there's an endgame that allows the player to keep going, leveling up and facing harder and harder ships. There are also a slew of planned updates, including more guns and two-player co-op, but what is present at launch feels like a solid foundation. There are some odd and annoying design decisions, and it can feel frustrating to rarely get to really let loose with the gun creations, but damn if I don't keep coming back to go through a few ships and see what destruction I can cause.

It's almost there in many respects which make the prospect of a sequel awfully alluring but it's executed well enough to make it a good game in its own right.
