What is Curved Space?
Curved Space is a 3D shoot-em-up (also known as a ‘schmup’) and it’s an arcade-style twin-stick shooter that borrows from the classics of yesteryear while adding some modern twists of its own.
You’ll battle it out in space against massive spiders, bugs, and more on curved landscapes. That’s where the game’s name comes from, obviously.
Power-ups and upgrades are included, as well as leaderboards for those who want the challenge of taking on the world. Not for me, then. These days, I lose at games to my four-year-old boy.
Curved Space is an intense arcade-style twin-stick shooter that takes the classic formula and plunges it into the weirdest reaches of space. Battle cosmic space-invading spiders across curved landscapes where bullets hug the terrain while the horizon drops sharply out of sight.
Inspired by arcade classics, players will have to hunt for weapon power-ups and upgrades while dodging enemy fire, blasting interdimensional bugs, and wrangling some enormous boss monsters. Simple to learn as you fight your way through the branching story-driven campaign, but tough to master as you chase the glory of the leaderboards.
