Grood Is A ‘Heavy Metal-Fueled’ Shmup Firing Onto Switch Next Week

Nintendo

Launching at the end of next week on the Nintendo Switch eShop is Grood, a shoot ’em up that’ll have you taking on an army of robotic enemies and bosses.

You’ll be travelling through woods, swamps, cities, frozen lands, deserts, and more to do just that, piloting your very own vehicle – called GROOD – along the way. Your enemies will be firing bullets, missiles and lasers at you non-stop, and you’ll have to be prepared for various water conditions such as rain, snow and strong winds.

Here’s an official description:

GROOD blends a classic shoot’em up arcade gameplay with modern graphics. The vibrant effects of explosions, smoke, fire and projectiles will fully immerse you in a hellish battle. If you prefer to keep it old-school though, just switch on the “90’s love” option to get pixelated retro visuals.

You won’t only need skill to succeed but also some tactical thinking. Be smart with both your aim and positioning to get rid of the most dangerous opponents first and to avoid being surrounded.
Compete with your friends and other warriors around the world for the best ranking in global leaderboards!
