Teslapunk Offers Artsy Arcade Action In This New Shmup

Honestly, I just wanted to use the word, "shmup," in a headline.

Also, this game is by Thorsten Fleisch. an artist who makes visually interesting short films, like Energie!, which sort of gives my eyes a workout.

In Teslapunk, you'll be tasked with avoiding bullets and sort of pushing away the enemies with a giant fire-hose-like weapon thing. Sounds like fun, right?

It's free, and the video below has the best presentation of a portrait-orientation iOS game I've seen, so by all means go give this one a try.
