Today is a very good day if you’re into 2D brawler games. You see, Oddly Shaped Pixels just informed me that their 2D pixelart brawler “Super Rocket Shootout” is now available for Windows, MAC and Linux (you can buy the game via Steam for 7,49 Euros):
“Dear Gaming Ground team!
I’m Renaud, I’m the guy behind Super Rocket Shootout, an indie brawler game that won the Best Indie game prize awarded by Microsoft Studios during Madrid Games Week 2014.
Published by Digital Tribe Games, Super Rocket Shootout was just released on Steam July, 14th and I’d be thrilled if you could have a go at it. I’ve followed your blog for quite some time now and I think you’d enjoy the game very much, be it in solo or in 4 players local couch multiplayer.” – Oddly Shaped Pixels
Great news indeed =) And yes, I will get someone to review “Super Rocket Shootout” as soon as possible (especially since Oddly Shaped Pixels was kind enough to provide us with a review key). So, what about features then? Well, these are the said features for “Super Rocket Shootout”:

About Super Rocket Shootout:
