Crystal Control II – A Competitive Shmup Where A Single Hit Decides Victory


Recommended Videos

A single hit decides victory in competitive shmup Crystal Control II, which makes things quite tense when players can spray the screen with potentially-lethal shots.


Crystal Control II offers eight characters, each with their own looks and unique attacks, for players to fight it out with. The characters’ most powerful abilities are fueled by crystals that float around the screen, and as players pick up more of them, their firepower grows. This turns each match into a race to see who can pick up the most crystals, all while dodging the shots each player sprays out.

Crystal Control II can be played in local multiplayer or as a solo match against AI, depending on whether the player has anyone around to play with.


Crystal Control II is available now on Steam and
