This game looks awesome. American newbies 'The Behemoth' got inspired to create this game by a flash game off the internet. You control a yellow alien and take on the FBI to get your ship back in a frantic 2D shooter with some gorgeous visuals and brilliant explosions. Co-op play is included to, and the second player can join in wheever they want.

After the brilliant Viewtiful Joe, my heart has opened up for the good ol' 2D games.

Keep your eye on this one as it's UK bound :D

And then administering a little friendly fire when it turns out they're just rubbish at it.

Thats true. I only seem to remember obscure fighting titles on the likes of the Mega Drive letting 2player join in when he/she wants.

The idea where anyone else can join in at any time is a great one, though. How long since any game had 'P2 press start' flashing in the corner?

Suppose, but I really like the look of it. It may not be anything 'new', but I think the frantic gameplay will make it fun to play.

And if you're stuck, you can quickly pause and force your brother/sister to play.

Thta's if they are good of course :D

Not really. It was an internet game, which usually make rather shallow proper games, no matter how many extra level they tag on the end.
And it looks pretty basic - not like VJ, which was actually 3D, just viewed mostly from the side.
