The rising popularity of boomer shooters continues | First Impressions - Turbo Overkill

Turbo Overkill is a high-octane first-person shooter that blends the intense bullet-hell and high speed action of retro titles like Doom and Quake with a cyberpunk aesthetic. The game thrusts players into a dystopian future where advanced technology and chaos converge.
The game's strengths are evident, with its intense combat system that demands precision and strategy. The controls are incredibly responsive, enabling players to master movement and maneuverability and feel 100% in control at all times. The art direction and visuals are impression, as the pixelated textures and low-poly models blend seamlessly with contemporary lighting and effects, resulting in a world that feels nostalgic, modern, and futuristic all at the same time.
The narrative, while not groundbreaking, aligns well with the boomer shooter genre as players step into the role of Johnny Turbo to save Paradise from the grip of the rogue AI SYN. I can see why it's currently taking the gaming community by storm, more specifically with its Steam’s overwhelmingly positive ratings.  This game is indeed something special, paying homage to classic titles while carving its own distinct identity.

Was this Cyberpunk boomer shooter sleek? - Turbo Overkill Quick Review
IS TURBO OVERKILL WORTH THE TRIP? There's definitely going to be an appeal here if you're a fan of existing boomer shooters like Doom, Dusk or waiting for the release of more contemporary titles like Forgive Me, Father 2 or Project Warlock 2. Especially in the latter case, as though it caters to the more retro-styled visuals you might find in older titles, and the frantic but familiar core gameplay of emptying every available ammo cartridge in constant swarms of enemies -
