Today, Team Soda, the studio behind 2021’s sleeper indie hit Snake Force, has brewed a mouthwatering gameplay treat for PC gamers with side-scrolling shooter Soda Crisis, available now on Steam. Containing all the ingredients needed for an exciting, action-packed offering, Soda Crisis equips players with high-tech gear and the expert combat skills needed to dodge, dive and dash through a dangerous futuristic world. All the action is paired with a sweet, bass-heavy soundtrack to give players an extra energy boost.
Taking the role of a living weapon of alien origins, players will taste a sugar-rush of side-scrolling chaos that tests a range of skills, including platforming, grappling, and sprinting. Standing in their way is an eclectic mix of enemies to face off against, from wall cannons covering all angles to armored tanks dropping rolling explosives.
A variety of weapons ensure a well-stocked arsenal to do maximum damage, and load-outs can be restocked or changed up at checkpoints. Players can then utilize the tactical potential of the battlefield to out-run, out-gun and out-jump their opponents. This is achieved through making full use of vital checkpoints that can recharge health and reload weapons along their way through multiple levels. From the close-quarters combat of the dimly lit laboratory to the exposed roof of a freight train speeding through the desert with nowhere to take cover, Soda Crisis always serves up something new and unexpected at every step.
Soda Crisis currently offers a single-player campaign and a speedrun mode to push players to the limits – only the best will post that record time without bottling it at the last moment!
