“Back in the heyday of coin-op arcades you never had to look very far for a formidable challenge. Games were made brutally tough to encourage you to feed a steady supply of quarters into the cabinets in order to stay alive for more than a couple of minutes at a time. Though my PC thankfully doesn’t have a coin slot, I almost wish it did after playing Astro Tripper. PomPom Games drew some obvious inspiration from this sadistic era of gaming history in crafting this unforgiving retro shooter. It oozes coolness in the creativity department, but it plays like a series of swift and forceful kicks straight to the junk.”
