Quantum: Recharged arcade action shooter game launches on Linux, Atari VCS, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to SneakyBox for their incredible work and effort on this release. Available now on Steam.
Atari, a legendary name in the gaming world, recently unveiled a fresh take on a classic, Quantum: Recharged. Now, if you’re also scratching your head wondering what the original was about, don’t worry. The arcade action shooter first hit arcades about 40 years ago. Well before any of us were deep into our PC adventures. So of course, it’s exciting to see old gems get a polish with modern twists on Linux.
Core Concept of Quantum: Recharged, a vast space arena filled with hostile enemies. You’re at the helm of a nimble ship, but here’s the twist: there are no onboard weapons. So, no lasers, guns, or missiles. Then how do you deal with these adversaries? By drawing boundaries around them and creating zones that wipe them out. Therefore, it’s all about strategy, swift moves, and making sure you avoid enemies.
Visuals and Sound: Quantum: Recharged brings the cosmos to life. Everything, from the vibrant cosmic visuals to the energetic background beats. Since its design launches you into this universe. A special shout out to Megan McDuffie, an acclaimed composer, who’s behind the soundtrack that’s bound to have you grooving while you work through the challenges.
