What would happen if two of history’s most inventive minds came together for an old-fashion throwdown? Tesla vs. Lovecraft provides a ridiculous, tentacled, electrified answer.
You play as the famed futurist Nikola Tesla, who’s waging war against twisted fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft. This ludicrous concept creates a fascinating mashup of styles: part steampunk, part classic horror.
But rather than challenging you to outthink the frightening fiction author, this twin-stick shooter has you fighting off waves of hungry Lovecraftian beasts using Tesla’s electric-powered weaponry.
True to form, you can invent tools to help take out the eldritch creatures. A teleportation device allows you to zip through walls to avoid enemies, while a giant mech can tear through crowds of enemies with its massive Gatling guns.
Those upgrades really come in handy, because your foes can be pretty tough to kill. It’s easy to get swarmed. If you’re accidentally backed into a corner, it’s a bad day for science.
But play it smart and Lovecraft’s monstrous minions will be forced back into the slimy depths. And even if the tentacled horrors win, you’ll find this offbeat shooter’s nonstop action electrifying.
