Smoothie Galaxy is a wonderful pixel art open world top down shooter/exploration game that draws inspiration from classic Zelda games, in which you explore a vibrant alien planet, battling enemies, unlocking upgrades and searching for parts to fix your ship.
In this charming bite sized adventure you control an astronaut who has crash-landed on an unknown planet and must track down the four pieces required to repair your ship. It’s not going to be a walk in the park however as the planet is inhabited by all manner of deadly indigenous species. During the games short, but very enjoyable playtime, you’ll tackle dungeons, collect handy upgrades (that allow access to new areas) and even battle big, deadly bosses.
It’s a fun and challenging game that takes the traditional Zelda formula, condenses it into mini-adventure with excellent pixel art animation and audio, and adds a cool laser gun – which is exactly as fun as it sounds!
