Gaming - Video: Let's Play Dystoria


This week, Tri-Coastal Games released their 80's inspired cerebral 3D shooter. The Defective Inspector gave us a decade worth of modernised nostalgia in his one hour Let's Play video...

Dystoria is a 360 degree Axis Shifting Space Shooter with core mechanics to fly at speed in any direction - on the surface geometry of each level, in a true 3D space. The twist is your ship can only shoot ahead, no matter in what direction you’re facing or level you are stationed. Navigate the precise and correct route to apprehend and destroy the enemy and collect precious orbs is made even more challenging whilst understanding the geographic route, plus taking in and understanding many other intriguing game features. A backdrop story adds to the intrigue and pulls the player into the arcade experience that really encapsulates the ambience of the epic 1980s.

The Development team said "Due to the nature of the game's 3D navigation, Dystoria brings on the exhilarating feeling of vertigo, thusly becoming mind-bending. Some players will take a while to get used to how to do this. Your mind needs to think in a unusual way, but it becomes easier the more you do it, which is a very rewarding experience."

With music inspired by 80s Arcade games that had a persistent soundtrack during gameplay (that sounds not unlike Airwolf) we warned the Defective Inspector to BE PREPARED!
