It's the future, and the supernatural bots from outer space have won. But wait, there's you! OrangePixel's Groundskeeper2 has you fighting endlessly against wave after wave of mechanical enemies, leveling up your weaponry as you take 'em out.
The best part is, unquestionably, the cutscenes. The OrangePixel team has lovingly crafted a whole story complete with characters (including personality!) that unfolds as you progress through bot-slaughter. The dialogue is voiced and high-quality, and terrible puns are plentiful. As you gather gizmos dropped by the bots as they fall, you'll be able to access sweeter weaponry to take down bigger baddies. You may safely anticipate power-ups along the lines of shields, time-slowdowns, lightbeam blasts, etc etc etc. Discovering the next unlockable keeps you moving from level to level just to play with your new deadly mechanical toys.
The gameplay couldn't be simpler - the screen of each level is static, so the strategy doesn't evolve significantly past jump, dodge, and shoot.
The care put into the graphic and story design makes OrangePixel's Groundskeeper2 a total gem, though, one you're definitely going to get a kick out of playing.
