The twin stick shooter is enjoying quite a bit of popularity these days, and a new title in the genre has to do something special to really stand out among the field. MicroBot's innovation is the setting: the inside of a human body. Two players can team up in their microscopic ships to eradicate diseased cells that have merged with rogue nanobots. A dynamic level generator will ensure that, as in real life, no two human bodies are alike, and the MicroBots are upgradable, as well. Most intriguing is the "innovative co-op editor" that allows partners to work together to create the ultimate MicroBot.
Due in Winter 2011, which we assume to mean early next year, MicroBot will be a downloadable title for Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. I'm a huge fan of the film Fantastic Voyage, which shares a similar premise to MicroBot, and can't wait to get my hands on this one. We've got a gallery and the brief teaser trailer for you to check out, if you're not too squeamish.
