Bullet Candy ships
Charlie's Games and Macgamestore.com today released Bullet Candy, a fast-paced arcade shooter for Mac OS X. Viewed from a top-down perspective, Bullet Candy features a true 360-degree experience to keep enemies in view at all times. Bullet Candy's controls allow for great precision of movement as well as aiming, and the game supports dual analog control pads. Game mechanics are inspired by Williams classic Robotron, vertical shooters such as Treasure's Ikaruga and Capcom's Gigawing, and Jeff Minter's awesome Llamatron as well as Tempest 2000. "Huge particle explosions, masses of enemy bullets, and beautiful feedback effects combined with power-ups, score multipliers, collectable friendly ships, laser upgrades and un-lockable bonus games all add up to make a great gameplay experience." Bullet Candy is priced at $20 (system requirements were unavailable).
