Drainus | Nintendo Switch

Drainus for Nintendo Switch


Drainus is a unique twist on traditional shooters.
Similar to “Ikaruga”, the player can only absorb light energy attacks.
These absorbed energy bullets accumulate in a meter and are released as a counterattack.

Some of the energy bullets are also stored in energy tanks and used for shooting variants, secondary attacks, and shield upgrades, allowing for a wide variety of play styles.
The game also features stunning pixel-art with multi-layered stages and multi-level bosses.

The soundtrack also pays homage to the greats while featuring its own unique electronic style to complete this package.
