Once upon a time there was only one twin-stick shooter worth worrying about – Geometry Wars. But as the genre has grown, so has the multitude of decent offerings. And that is where #Funtime comes in, for this is a game that combines twin-stick shooting with a good old fun time. The best thing about it? It’s available right now on Xbox One.
Available to purchase and download this very instant from the Xbox Store for Xbox One, #Funtime comes from the publishing arm of The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild after being initially created by the one man team at OneGuyGames.
