The old classics are always the best, and that is most definitely the case in the gaming industry. I mean, is there really anything better than kicking back with a gorgeous vertical scrolling shooter, with the express intention to blast away anything and everything that moves? Well, with the launch of I, AI on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and Nintendo Switch you’ll get the chance to take in a game inspired by those classics, all whilst twisting in a modern day feel.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, I, AI comes to console thanks to the team at Sometimes You as they deliver a standard SHMUP experience, and throw in a few little additions along the way.
Running a price of £8.39, I, AI sees you taking charge of an AI that has become a little self-aware and is attempting to escape to freedom. The story behind it is pretty much neither here nor there to be honest, and aside from a couple of little cut-scenes, you’ll really only find yourself enjoying I, AI for what it really is – a vertical scrolling SHMUP.
With 20 missions in hand, each of which are playable across multiple difficulty levels and allow for a decent degree of replayability, some rather epic boss fights and the chance to upgrade your little ship with some intense weaponry, I, AI on Xbox, Playstation and Switch certainly has all the ingredients required of a decent SHMUP. And as with all games from that genre, expect a bit of a grind to come into play too – it’s a good grind though.
- – Great colorful graphics with awesome effects
- – Upgrade weapons of your ship and unlock superweapons
- – Epic boss fights
- – 20 various missions
