I’m a big fan of these starship shooters, I always have been since I was a kid playing Space Invaders or Galaga. The evolution of these games has been great and we have some great titles across the board from AAA to indie. Here’s a great looking one for the Nintendo Switch called Shoot 1UP DX, watch the trailer and read all about it below!

Charlestown, IN –October, 2020– Mommy’s Best Games releases their retro-styled shooter game Shoot 1UP DX to Nintendo Switch in North America.

Ported now to Nintendo Switch in North America (NA), Shoot 1UP DX is a classic arcade game with a twist: Play all your ships at once. Beginning with three ships, players continue to build their forces, piloting up to 30 ships to fight through 8 alien levels. Two player mode is available as well for 60 ships. The DX release features additional content, and enhanced visuals.

“Today marks the start of the DX releases to new consoles and I couldn’t be happier!” says Mommy’s Best Games president Nathan Fouts. “ I’ve seen many gamers surprised by the wild ideas in Shoot 1UP DX, and it’s so great to give them a chance to play it on Nintendo Switch.”

Switch Releases
With Shoot 1UP DX now available on Nintendo Switch in North America, work continues for bringing the game to Europe. PS4 and Xbox One releases are in the works as well. Release dates will follow.

Development Details
Fouts continued, “Getting 60 frames a second for Nintendo Switch was a challenge, but my friends at Super Soul are skilled at Unity development. Watching the game smoothly scroll by on that amazing looking, handheld Switch screen is a great feeling.”
