Independent developer Ask an Enemy Studios has launched its split-screen single-player twin-stick risk-’em-up A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher on the Nintendo Switch eShop today for $9.99.
A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher is a twist on the classic shmup formula as players control two ships simultaneously. Destroy incoming enemies on the left side to earn points, while recovering resources on the right to multiply those points. The left side does not take damage. The right side does. It’s complicated and that’s the whole point. The devil is in the details. Should you want to survive with your score intact, you’ll have to train both sides of your brain!
Adding further intensity is the fact that players lose their score when they die. Should you want to rank on the leaderboard, you’ll have to push the eject button yourself. Fail and not only will you lose your score, you also risk the chance of wiping your leaderboard position as well. Playing till death is not an option.
