Vorpal Brings Manga Art To Shoot-em-Up Form

0

 

Vorpal is a vertical black-and-white shoot-em-up that looks very reminiscent of manga at times. Developed by Red Wolf for Xbox Live Arcade, the game focuses on one-on-one battles against other ships — almost like a fighter — and dodging their frenzy of bullets and beams.

 

You can grab Vorpal for 80 points (that’s $1.00) on Xbox Live Arcade, or try the free demo. Here’s the game’s development blog, too, if you’re interested in seeing how Vorpal progressed through development.
