[Beyond PlayStation] Tachyon Project Review

Tachyon Project Review - 1

When you look at Tachyon Project, you’ll probably think a bit about Geometry Wars, which isn’t a bad thing! Not many twin-stick shooters have a story, and this one does not have a meaty story, but it does setup things nicely. The story is about two hackers who try to overtake the government computers by using an AI, attacking their defenses. Unfortunately, the AI’s creators are taken away, and this prompts the AI to try and find out what has happened to them.

If you’re a fan of twin-stick shooters, then you’ll feel right at home with this one, even though the difficulty does ramp up considerably as you go. Luckily the game has a generous checkpoint system, so things never feel frustrating even if the difficulty curve does suddenly jump at one point. Tachyon Project you will either love or hate, but be sure to give it a go!

For each of the game’s missions, you must survive several waves of enemies, either over a fixed time or by defeating X number of enemy types and so on. As you progress through the campaign in search of your creators, you will unlock upgrades that will increase your health bar, secondary firepower and more – this is a must due to the aforementioned difficulty curve since you’ll need to make every shot count.

Enemy design is great, with enemies of all sizes and colors, and even stealthy enemies that can only be seen when you fire in their direction – this is definitely very different from what I’ve seen other twin-stick shooters do, and it changes how you approach a wave of enemies. It does take a bit to get used to it, but this gameplay mechanic definitely “clicks” with you without much trouble.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced twin-stick action release on Nintendo Switch, then you should check out Tachyon Project. The game’s story setup is interesting, and the way the AI reacts to its creators going missing will push you to find out what is really going on. The difficulty will ramp up as you play, so even if you’re a seasoned player you will still need to do some trial and error to see what works against each enemy type – don’t get cocky or else you’ll be easily overwhelmed!
