Three fleets of spaceships flee a doomed Earth carrying the last humans in cryostasis. Pursued by aliens, it's up to the lowly security droids to save humanity. Taking up arms solo or with a friend, you must dance with death in a brutal and addictive arcade platformer shooter inspired by Super Crate Box and stuffed to the brim with unlockables.
Fight through rapid fire single screen levels each with a random combination of platform layout, objective, vending machines and enemies. Dodge and weave amongst the aliens to stay alive but don't leave them standing too long or the ship's radiation will mutate them into bigger, nastier versions.
Only by unlocking and mastering the wild variety of weapons, explosives, special abilities, defense moves and perks can you hope to survive across all three galaxies, rid your ship of the mutant menace and save the oblivious humans.
Intense Brutal Action - rapid fire levels give you no rest as hordes of enemies arrive, hell-bent on your destruction. Clear the objective quickly and be sure to kill each enemy before it has the chance to mutate into a bigger, nastier version of itself. Take a tiny breather and then it's on to the next room.
Dance with death - in the tight confines of the space freighter, standing still is not an option. Your ability to dodge around enemies is as important as your aim. Survival requires quick thinking and rapid reflexes and a true master of the dance is a beautiful thing to behold.
Different Every Time - each single screen level is randomised, drawing on a pool of platform layouts, objective types and enemies as well as which vending machines will be present. You'll never know which weapons or grenades will spawn in the vending machines whilst crate drops containing special abilities, sidearms, perks and defense moves are also random, adding further to the mind-boggling possible combinations.
Overflowing with Unlockables - a wealth of weapons, sidearms, special abilities, perks, explosives, defense moves and character skins awaits you. Each new unlockable joins the melting pot of random ingredients, increasing your options but also the need to master each individual element and the way they combine with each other.
Play solo or with a friend - take on the mutant hordes by yourself or team up in local co-op. Two player adds further complications to master as you must be careful to avoid friendly fire from explosives and will have to share/fight over item and health pack drops.

Super Mutant Alien Assault is pretty much a premium version of Super Crate Box. It is roguelite arena 2D action platformer with somewhat randomly generated levels and objectives to make the game last longer and not feel stale. Graphics and soundtrack are really nice, and the gameplay is simple and addicting. The problem with this game is that it can get pretty boring after long sessions, mostly because there are only few game modes, transporting a tank, surviving or killing all enemies, and the levels are of the level of complexity of Mario Bros (the arcade one, not to be confused with NES Super Mario Bros.), so after a while it can get boring. Still, the shooting is incredibly satisfying, so boredom will stay away from you for a while. Overall, pretty good game. If you are not sure, just get Super Crate Box for free - if you like it, you will absoluetly love this one. Recommended.
I hope you like fast, frantic fun, because that's exactly what this game offers, and I've got to say it does a good job at it. The game plays like an arcade shooter and each level is randomly generated, so already it's worth buying for the high replay value. In addition, you can team up with friends and unlock a vast array of weapons and abilities to eradicate the alien threat. The art style is also cool, having an arcade-like appearance to it, so that combined with the multiplayer and replay value should give you a good enough reason to try this game.
