Sherbet Thieves (Official Review)

In a world where sherbet is harvested in space, that world needs a twin stick shooter. The premise of Sherbet Thieves is...well thieves want to steal the sherbet. And since sherbet is farmed in outer space in the future, that is where our adventure in this game takes place. You're a hired gun for a sherbet farmer, tasked to fend off the various thieves who lurk in the shadows. The basic mechanic is what you'd expect, you use the thumb sticks for your weapons and to move around the levels. Just watch out for those pesky thieves, shoot them down, and return any stolen sherbet to the farm. While the twin stick shooter is quite common in the Indie Games, at least some effort is made to spice Sherbet Thieves. But is an off the wall premise enough to help Sherbet Thieves carve a niche in the genre?

At least you don't shoot zombies or generic space ships, which is a promising development. You do battle some aliens, as well as pirates, strange cows, hippies, and more. I have to be honest, the idea of gunning down hordes up hippies, even in space, is a concept that seems awesome. In any event, the unusual enemies do help the experience feel fresh and in this genre, any little sparks of creativity help. In terms of your arsenal, you have a primary weapon and a secondary one, with multiple choices available for both slots. You can purchase new weapons with your hard won cash from protecting the sherbet, but keep in mind only one weapon of each type can be equipped at once. So you might love that Ion Pitchfork, but be sure to tinker around and see which combinations work best for you. And of course, you have a screen clearing mega-weapon in limited doses in the form of the gravity bomb, which also returns stolen sherbet.

The game has thirteen levels in the campaign, each which is on the short side. So while the game is fun while it lasts, the ride is a brief one. On the plus side, you can tackle five difficulty levels and that extends your experience. And really given the price involved, even one playthrough of the campaign is worth the cost. The game's visuals are simple, but effective. The space backdrops provide a nice battlefield, while the enemy designs are basic, but get the point across. So not really one to dazzle your senses, but it has a solid look. Sherbet Thieves doesn't bring any real innovation to the table, but it is a brisk, fun game that lets you unleash powerful weapons on hippies. So if you're a twin stick shooter addict and you want something a little more off the wall, then Sherbet Thieves is worth looking into.

A quick Review

Well the main objective of this game is not to let the enemies to take the "Sherbet" to your base, oh and not die.

This game is really fun, but I think it just a bit too slow. Besides that the game is superb for 80MS Points. Playing with two people splitscreen is a blast.

Not much to say here, but i'm going back to play it.

I say: Give it a Try! Just don't let it slip past you!
