OVERVIEW

HORGIHUGH is a challenging side-scrolling shooter from Japanese developer PiXEL that features vibrant retro graphics, dynamic boss battles, a unique power-up system, and an adorable roster of anthropomorphic characters.

Developed by a team of industry veterans, HORGIHUGH is a throwback experience reminiscent of classic 16-bit shmups. However, it's not all nostalgia and pixels here. This colorful 2D shooter brings with it modern trappings such as a sleek presentation, the option to purchase weapon upgrades mid-mission, and the ability to dodge bullets at the last moment via aerial maneuvers. When all of its features and mechanics come together, players are presented with an experience that is challenging yet still accessible, truly making it a game for both genre experts as well as newcomers.
