Xbox 360 indie review: “STRACO : Purge and Conquest”

Posted: 2014/06/19 in Indie Games

The original STRACO, “STRACO Episode 1” to be specific, was an interesting mash-up between action shooting and tower defence. It was much improved after a 2.0 update was released for it (that, thanks to plumbing the indie channel for hidden gems, I got right off the bat).

It’s finally got a well deserved sequel, and one that compromises the promised volumes 2 and 3 of a trilogy, all in a single $1 release: “STRACO : Purge and Conquest”.

From v1.0, to 2.0, to a two-part sequel, the STRACO games have done nothing but get better. Haven’t tried the dual-stick shooting/strategy hybrid original? Go download it now. Liked the original? Go give this developer another dollar. As action/strategy hybrids go, it doesn’t get much better.

Here’s what the publisher (Not Very Original) has to say about the game:

“Both STRACO Episode 2 and 3 in one package! Fight the evil Filth plague and defeat Boss Noss! 2 hour single player campaign — Mini-games — P2P high scores — And other such nonsense!!!! Be the hero that your mother always wanted you to be!”

    Thanks for the review and the compliments!

    Too bad XBLIG isn’t productive enough to keep up your daily schedule anymore :( I would have been Day 1301 by counting the prior reviews and re-reviews of XBLIGs. Though a daily schedule would have made that number higher.

    Thanks again, and good luck with the site! If I ever release another game I’ll be sure to let you know!
