This week’s pick for our game dev spotlight goes to Benfont Limited for their game SPCR-x.
SPCR-X is a sci-fi themed arcade game. The objective is simple: survive the mission and protect your crew! But like most things in life it’s not as easy as it sounds. Players have to quickly maneuver past spikes and dangerous moving objects as they explore the inside of their enemy’s mothership.
There’s also a fire button located on the screen, same as the classic retro arcade shooters from the past. Players have to quickly tap on the fire button to blast away at incoming enemy ships and colliding asteroids. Speed, precision and strategy are crucial in this game. The further you get the harder you get hit.
Whether it’s flying spikes, mysterious projectiles or droves of enemy ships firing in your direction, it’s non-stop action. There’s also laser barriers that you have to shoot in order to break through. SPCR-X is a fun challenging arcade style shooter.
Here’s an exclusive gameplay trailer of this week’s game dev spotlight, SPCR-X in action:
