Games Foundation tackles a rarely explored subgenre in Traxion, a physics-based, arcade-style shooter for Mac and iOS devices.
Gameplay in Traxion is inspired by semi-obscure console games like Solar Jetman and Subterrania. Players navigate tricky level layouts using an unconventional thrust mechanic (similar to the arcade classic Asteroids), and items collected will weigh down your ship until you drag them to safety. The gameplay is solid, but hopefully, Traxion hasn’t inherited its inspiration’s difficulty — Solar Jetman was quite punishing!
Traxion is priced at $1.99. Versions for Windows and Android are also in the works.
