Our Xbox One videos of Project Root

Project Root, the new Shoot'Em Up from OPQAM is available now on Xbox One. Even if it will remind you of some great games like Desert Strike. So many things will annoy you, like numerous bugs forcing you to start over the mission or crazy hitboxes. For once, we hesitate to say thank you to our friends from the Xbox network... But we have to do our job and you must see our videos, especially the epic boss battle. Or maybe not.

Actually the big inspiration for this game seems to be Seek and Destroy (1993, Amiga) http://www.mobygames.com/game/seek-and-destroy
That was a simple and good shooter with a technical novelty (free rotation, which was not so easy with bitmapped graphics back then), and this one seems to fill the same spot, gameplay-wise.

BTW, the "crazy hitboxes" you mention are probably a gameplay mechanic like in Seek and Destroy. There are ground enemies and they can only be harmed with the ground weapon that will impact at the crosshair. Probably the game has a ground and air layer playfield.

Nope, crazy hitboxes, I died because something which was some pixels away from me destroyed my shield.

Shame to hear about the problems with this one. First thing I thought when I saw this was Strike... moreover the famed lost "Future Strike". I was hesitant to grab it, though, because of the screen rotation. It looks like it would make me barf after 10 mins. I guess I'll wait for a patch to grab it.

The a500 was a BEAST. Ever play Hunter? Framerate was shit but its like the proto-gta: full 3d, open world and tons of vehicles...on hardware from 1987. Screw mode 7 ;)

Amiga...the good old days :)
