Best PS4 Games #27 – Resogun

Developer: Housemarque

Synopsis: A short experience filled with brilliance, Resogun gameplay works across several levels on a circling, cylindrical plane of existence. Land and air-based combatants pour in from either side of the plane, shooting lasers at your player’s ship from all angles. You fend them off with an arsenal of weaponry that includes lasers, energy shockwaves, bullets and more. You need to keep the action constantly in motion to maintain your multiplier bonus, never staying stagnant.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: Leading to the release of the PS4 in 2013, the first real example of next-gen gameplay and the capabilities of the advanced hardware over the previous generation came with Resogun. It’s a side-scrolling, shoot-em-up title that uses thousands of voxels within a 2.5D setting to offer a visual aesthetic not truly seen in video games prior to the PS4. The beauty comes from expanding the simplicity of the game by showcasing mesmerizing explosions of color and sound.
