Flowstorm - arcade racing and aerial combat game

Another game that needs your votes is Flowstorm and it's on Steam Greenlight. What is Flowstorm you may wonder, basically Flowstorm unlike the other multi directional shoot em up we mentioned, this time is an arcade racing and aerial combat game. It also uses the same type of control method as Thrust which is a pretty old game however unlike both of those you need to use the world around you to gather momentum to complete the game. It may sound strange but in Flowstorm it works really well, this is done by the underside of your rocket which when touches the edges can slide about. But be careful, if you hit the edges on your front or at the wrong angle you will blow up into pieces.

The basic idea of the game is to use the edges of the game world, while also using your rocket to power you and give you momentum to slide from one part to another. It seems completely crazy in explanation but this is how the game is played and the object is to get to the end of the map. I've seen trailers of this game with players so desperate to finish that once they reach the end they power themselves so hard the rocket smashes just into the finish area without actually touching down!. Yes you can also use your weapon against other enemies/objects in the game world but remember it's a racing game. In addition, the game features a level editor, which is currently available in the standalone alpha version of the game. Don't forget to vote for this to be on steam greenlight!
