Mad Head Games’ Rocking Pilot Looks Absolutely Mental, Launches Next Week

If you’re a fan of twin stick shooters, you might just want to plant Rocking Pilot firmly on your radar.

Developed by Mad Head Games and releasing on the 15th May for around a fiver, Rocking Pilot harkens back to the classic shoot’em ups of the 90’s, but seemingly turns everything up to 11.

With a totally rocking soundtrack, there are 42 missions to tackle across campaign, score and survival modes, a huge arsenal of weapons to decimate your enemies with, shedloads of collectables, and online score leaderboards to obsess over. Oh, and let’s not forget about the Rotor Blades mechanic that allows you to deflect bullets and survive environmental hazards.

Planned to also launch on PS4 later this year, check out the trailer for Rocking Pilot below to get a taste of just how thick the action gets. I think it’s safe to say that only the brave and the bold will survive its onslaught.
