Insectoid Arcade Shooter In Final Beta Testing
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

ActionSoft Games, known for its action/exploration game Midnight Mansion, is close to releasing its next title, Insectoid, and is asking for dedicated beta testers to help complete the final phase of testing. Inspired by space shooters of the past the action arcade game includes over 50 levels, four unique ships, a variety of enemies, and three difficulty modes.

I am looking for about 50 dedicated beta testers for my nearly-finished game Insectoid.

It's a space shooter inspired by Galaga, but with a character of its own. Looking for players committed to testing levels faithfully and giving feedback.

Anyone interested can contact me at vern AT actionsoft DOT com

with the subject "Insectoid Beta Testing" and list their age and type of computer (including processor speed).
More information about the game:
Featuring fast-paced, adrenaline-inducing gameplay, over 50 unique levels, four custom ships, stunning high-res graphics that look great even on a 30" display, and a professional musical score, Insectoid is a retro shooter fan's dream come true.

Collect power-ups and use special weapons, including split ship, laser beam, fireball, and a shield, as you fight back swarms of angry insects. Advance behind enemy lines and try to catch the enemy off-guard as you aide human forces in galactic war.

If you enjoyed games like Galaga back in the 80's, you're sure to love Insectoid. Insectoid is not available for download/purchase yet, but join our mailing list and you'll be informed when the game is available
