"Super Mega Bob is a retro 2D SHMUP influenced by games like Mega Man, The Binding of Isaac, Adventures of Lolo, Diablo III, Jetpack, and Raptor: Call of the Shadows. The game is loaded with original pixel art and beautiful day/night and weather cycles that keep gameplay fresh and colorful.
The idea for Super Mega Bob first originated as a question: "How much can you make happen on one screen?" It quickly took me to the idea of extremely strategically designed levels filled with more enemies than I had ever seen in any 2D SHMUPs myself. What Super Mega Bob is at the moment is a foundation - one that, if built upon, will lead to a 2D SHMUP that is more strategically challenging than almost any other out on the market."
Check out the Super Mega Bob Kickstarter Page, and the trailer / screenshots below. You can also download the beta for free. At the time of posting, there are 10 days to go and a modest funding goal to achieve. A $5 pledge bags you a copy of the game.
