News:: Review in Progress: Nex Machina

A few seconds into Nex Machina, I knew Housemarque had nailed it. Fundamentally, it just works.

The studio has won over a lot of arcade lovers with games like Super Stardust HD and Resogun. I liked 'em and the team's newer title, Alienation, quite a lot. But Robotron: 2084 was always my main jam. That's what I wanted to see someone base their game on. That's what gets me fired up.

Nex Machina is the same "shoot the robots, save the people" concept but modernized through the lens of Housemarque and Robotron's own Eugene Jarvis, who served as a creative consultant. It rules.
