When you think of the political scene in the 1980’s, you can’t help but think of Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan. Two sides of the same coin as the leaders of arguably the most powerful nations on the planet. Imagine then, if you will, a scenario where they are thrown together in a fight for survival.
This is exactly what Team2Bit have created in their ID@Xbox title, Reagan Gorbachev, released today. This top-down shooter has a little bit of an Alien Breed feel to it as the once great rivals are kidnapped by militant extremists. Co-operation is the name of the game.
Armed with only their fists, and swords. Oh, and poison darts, pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, grenade launchers and mini-guns also feature in this action-stealth shooter for one or two players over local co-op.
This is all wrapped up in a totally 16-bit graphical shell that reflects the game’s time period.
Reagan Gorbachev has sneaked under the radar here at TiX Towers and it’s available here, now.
Before you make your mind up though, have a look at the release trailer. As a confirmed old person, it looks great.
