Assault Android Cactus is the work of a three person team in Brisbane Australia combing western arcade twinstick gameplay and Japanese inspired bullet hell to create an intense skill based experience spanning transforming levels and multi-stage bosses.

Controlling a battery powered android attempting to rescue a crippled interplanetary freighter from its robot workers, you're sixty seconds away from deactivating unless you defeat enemies fast enough to release a vital power top up. With your fate tied to a battery, genre conventions are flipped and the only way to stay alive is hurl yourself into danger.
