Tormentor X Punisher is an arena twin-stick shooter. It’s also what you’d get if a stoner high school student’s notebook scribblings came to life and were every bit as cool as the artist-in-training thought they were. Start in the middle of an open arena, either alone or with a friend, and massacre all the freaks, mutants, and demons that dare to rise up against your arsenal of overpowered projectile death weapons. It’s basically Geometry Wars by way of Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley, with a little Geoff Darrow thrown in for the logo, except the enemies alter and change the arena as the fight progresses. Check out the trailer below for a sense of how all the pieces fit together, including a generous helping of death-metal guitar and a whole lot of swearing.
It’s also worth noting that the game name is “Tormentor X Punisher”, rather than “Terminator X Punisher” as I originally read. While I’m not disappointed in what it turned out to be, I’ve got to admit to wanting to see what the misread game would be like.
