Radiangames makes great shooters and their latest game on Xbox Live Indie Games is no different. Radiangames Inferno is a dual stick shmup, but unlike most games in the genre that just stick you in an arena and ask you to survive for as long as possible, Radiangames Inferno has levels to explore and upgrades to be purchased and equipped. Taking a cue from the old arcade classic Gauntlet, there are keys to be found, doors to be unlocked, monster generators to be destroyed, and fake walls to be discovered. Solid level design and a good variety of new enemy types (including 2 bosses) help to keep things interesting.
The game took me about 90-120 minutes to complete its 30 levels. 3 difficulty levels, a New Game+ mode where you start out overpowered, and up to 4 player co-op all combine to give the game a decent amount of replayability.
At a mere 80 MS points, Radiangames Inferno is easily a must-buy.
