Assault Android Cactus gets an update, reaches alpha

Assault Android, that top down shooter than plays like a mixture of 80’s and 90’s old school games has two pieces of news for everyone. First up is that they recently revealed a sweet weapon swap animation for the main character, Cactus.

Tell me that this doesn’t look kick-ass!

The second bit of news is that Assault Android Cactus has finally reached alpha status and with that comes massive update and the final two levels of the game.
