One of the best modern twin-stick shooters is now (slightly) better than ever.

Assault Android Cactus+ is the baked potato of twin-stick shooters. A perfectly cooked center, loaded with all the extra goods, and a dollop of charm for good measure. It's a perfect fit on Switch with its drop-in multiplayer and bite-sized levels, especially for those with score-chasing in mind.

The Switch isn’t exactly light on twin-stick shooters. Assault Android Cactus + is easily in the upper echelon, though.

Assault Android Cactus' greatest weakness is that it defines itself as an "arcade dual stick shooter" in such a traditional fashion that it's limited by that.
