One-man developer Force Of Habit has revealed its latest project destined for Switch: a retro-style shooter called Neon Caves.

This one’s press release describes it as “an experimental offshoot” of Toast Time: Smash Up!, a multiplayer brawler which launched on Switch towards the end of last year. This new release (we say ‘new’ – it actually launched on the OUYA back in 2014) is designed using the same movement mechanics that were present in that game, but changes things up to use them in a brand new, arcade-action twitch gameplay environment.

The game has you exploring the titular Neon Caves, a fragile ecosystem lost to the world for centuries. Recently rediscovered by your research team, you’ll need to use your ship’s anchor ability and elite implements to stabilise the cave while keeping the hostile inhabitants at bay.

Game Features:
– Endless arcade-action gameplay. How long can you survive?
– 9 unique enemy types: including historically accurate giant crustaceans!
– 4 awesome power-ups: rapid fre, bombs, invincibility and ghost ship!
– 28 Achievements
– Nintendo Switch exclusive Online Leaderboards
