Cobalt is an adorable 2D action side scroller. You are thrust into the role of Cobalt, and must shoot your way through a multitude of hallways and baddies.
Highlights of the combat include a bullet time feature that slows down the action, the ability to deflect bullets against opponents, and space hamsters. The combat is so quick that it turns into a test of reflexes as bullets come your way and you slide and dodge your way around the rooms. It looks simple enough for casual players, but offers enough complexity for more seasoned players to try out.
There will be a multitude of multiplayer features including capture the flag, deathmatch, survival, and other modes. Additionally players will be offered a map creator of sorts to create your own levels of mayhem.
The game is shaping up nicely, and looks like a fast paced shoot em up with character. It is expected early February 2016.
