Of Murder And Moonshine: A Fantastic 2D Pixel Art Twitch Style Shooter

by Indie Wavemakers

We woke up today to get some gabagool, only for our consigliere to call us about a waste disposal issue. Of Murder and Moonshine is a captivating 2D side-scrolling shooter game that marries old-school 90s pixellated aesthetics with modern gameplay mechanics, offering players a thrilling experience filled with action, mystery, and suspense.

Developed and published by the enigmatic Prestige WWW, Of Murder and Moonshine is reminiscent of an overlooked Italian-American gangster revival that had references in The Mask and Dick Tracy. While we are not on a nickname basis just yet, time to put on your zoot suit and incite a riot against banning alcohol.

Of Murder and Moonshine transports players to the heart of a small, eerie town nestled deep within New Orleans during the Prohibition era. Starting as an entry-level mobster looking to make an impression, players find themselves entangled in a web of intrigue, corruption, and supernatural occurrences. One of the standout features of the game is its meticulously crafted atmosphere while working around minimal settings. The throwback pixellated graphics evoke a sense of nostalgia, especially for those growing up in the Sega cartridge era, while the haunting soundtrack sets the perfect tone for the game’s dark and atmospheric world. Making historical references to the real-life Prohibition Era does make for an interesting backstory and dialogue between characters adds authenticity, as opposed to using cliched stereotypes.

Gameplay-wise, Of Murder and Moonshine delivers a satisfying blend of classic side-scrolling shooting action and modern mechanics. Players must navigate through treacherous environments, battling hordes of enemies and uncovering clues to solve the town’s mysteries. The controls are responsive and intuitive, allowing for smooth and fluid movement and combat. Do not let the seemingly easy controls fool you, there is a need for strategy for every level and not just go trigger-happy on every person coming towards your direction. Case in point is your choice of weapon, selecting the tommy gun would have been a no-brainer but does it get your job done efficiently? Similarly, it might be wise to retreat momentarily and switch up tactics before reaching your final objective.

The game’s narrative is equally compelling, weaving together elements of crime noir and supernatural horror. As players progress, they unravel the town’s dark secrets, encountering a cast of memorable characters and facing off against formidable foes. The story is engaging and immersive, keeping players invested from start to finish. In addition to its main campaign, “Of Murder and Moonshine” offers plenty of replay value with its challenging difficulty levels and unlockable content. Players can experiment with different weapons and abilities, uncovering hidden secrets and uncovering alternate endings.

Overall, Of Murder and Moonshine is a must-play for fans of side-scrolling shooters and atmospheric storytelling who loves a mob-related theme. With its captivating visuals, engaging gameplay, and immersive narrative, it’s a title that stands out in the indie gaming scene and promises hours of thrilling entertainment.
