Assault Spy Goes Into Early Access
Indie studio Wazen’s Assault Spy was released into early access on Steam earlier in May, and it’s already showing the signs of being a pretty good beat 'em up. In the currently available story, you play as corporate spy Asaru, who fights with a briefcase and is constantly hindered by his semi-useless partner, Kanoko. You spend much of your time in the game dodging the laser sights of robots, dashing through semi-destroyed offices and punching your enemies in the face. It’s a lot of silly fun.
Assault Spy does still contain quite a few issues though, but the developers should be ironing out these as early access continues. In the next few months, I would expect to see a couple of the major glitches in the combat disappear and dodging to become smoother, as well as an added tutorial and upgraded cutscene graphics. I also look forward to seeing more features in the game completed, including playing as Amelia, a CIA agent, through the story missions.
There’s certainly a lot of fun to be had with the early access of Assault Spy, and I suspect it will shape up to be a really great game. It’s definitely something I’d recommend checking out in the next few months for beat em up fans. Be sure to stay tuned for a complete review of Assault Spy on The Gamers Lounge in the upcoming weeks as the developers add more to the game.
