Over the weekend Polygon reported that the maker of the platformer Cave Story has announced that his next project will be a game called Gero Blaster for iOS. The game is a retro-style action platformer along the lines of Contra, made by the Japanese developer Daisuke Amaya. Watch the trailer below.
The game looks like it was transported directly from the days of the Atari and NES, which may be enough to make older gamers grab it up just for the sense of nostalgia. But if you’ve played Cave Story, you probably know that Daisuke Amaya has some serious game making chops. Gero Blaster is set to release in May. For more information and screenshots, click here.
