Originally part of the mini-event where Sony allowed gamers to vote for what free game they could receive on the PlayStation 4 as part of the free game for PlayStation Plus subscribers in March, Assault Android Cactus lost out to Broforce, the over-the-top homage to 1980s and 1990s action movies.
Nevertheless, developer Witch Beam Games is still making Assault Android Cactus available on the PlayStation 4 in March, even if it’s not free. The developer recently announced that the isometric, fast-paced, twin-stick shooter for up to four players will be available on Sony’s eighth-gen outing starting March 8th.
The game has currently been available on Steam since September 23rd, 2015 last year. The game is currently $14.99 on Valve’s digital distribution service.
Assault Android Cactus sports four-player local co-op designed in a similar fashion to the old 3D Robotron games. The action is fast, furious and completely wild. You can see what the gameplay is like with the video below.

The interesting thing about is that one of the only major complaints about Witch Beam’s energetic and action-packed title is that it lacks online co-op play. I imagine if online co-op was part of the feature list and the game was the free game for the month of March on PlayStation Plus there would have been far fewer complaints than the current crop of games that Sony has up for offer.
Now don’t get me wrong, Broforce is an awesome game, but the common issue a lot of PlayStation Plus subscribers have is that there have been way too many pixel-sprite games being given away via PS Plus and not enough high-quality 3D games. It’s an understandable position to be in when each set of games each month are titles that may look as if they come off the SNES or Sega Genesis.
Nevertheless, gamers will be able to get their hands on Assault Android Cactus for the PS4 starting next month. For more info on the game feel free to pay a visit to the official website.
