The gender of the run & gun, Those of the Contra saga style, Mega Man, etc., hit very hard in the era of 8 and 16 bits, but with the return of two-dimensional perspectives in video games, especially thanks to the contribution of many indies inspired by great classics from several decades ago, it is again more fashionable than ever. This is shown by the independent developer Spicy Giro Games, with its first job to step on the territory of the consoles, Clash Force, after bringing the colorful Polyroll platforms to PC. It is a 8-bit side-advance adventure from those of distributing shots to the right and left to everything that moves, of those structured by separate levels, in order to end one of these global threats of invasion. This title, which from the beginning will awaken a lot of nostalgia for those who lived through the NES era, is scheduled to premiere in the Nintendo Switch eShop starting on Friday 3rd of July, for € 4.99.
