Review: Colt Canyon – A Twin-Stick Roguelike With Razor-Sharp Gameplay

A Fistful of Bullets.

Twin-stick shooters generally have a lot in common with one another. Most of the time, they’ll throw an absurd amount of enemies in your direction, and it’s often an exercise in basic survival against the odds, with bullets flying in every direction possible. Colt Canyon certainly displays aspects of this, but it’s an altogether more subdued, deliberate experience – and it’s all the better for it.

Set in a typical Western setting (meaning cacti and tumbleweed are particularly abundant), Colt Canyon sees you take on the role of a cowboy who must save his partner from a gang of outlaws. As you progress through the game you’ll quickly unlock new characters, each of which are equipped with their own unique weapon and traits. It’s a fast-paced experience, but there’s a surprising focus on stealth, and it actually feels very similar to games like Hotline Miami in this regard; you’re rewarded for meticulously combing the environment and taking out enemies without being seen, and there’s a wonderful rhythmic feeling to the gameplay once you overcome its steep difficulty curve.
