Newo Shooter 1.77a

by Owen
Newo Shooter is a rail shooter in a third-person and first-person 3D perspective. The player must navigate his spacecraft, through environments while various enemies (spaceships, robots, creatures, etc.) attack him. Enemies drop various power-ups (free lives, 50% health, weapon upgrades, shields) to help the player. The player receives a score on each level based on how many enemies destroyed. At the end of each level there is a boss that the player must defeat before progressing to the next level.
