Game Description

An unusual animal inspires the name for this quirky arcade-style shooter! The action in Platypus unfolds in classic, side-scrolling style, as you pilot a duck-billed ship and destroy everything in your path. The game's look, however, brings an eye-catching twist: it's styled after hand-molded 3D claymation models. Enjoy the game's unique visuals as you blast your way through 6 levels split into 30 mammoth stages. Choose from two single-player modes and three multiplayer options. You'll encounter 18 types of enemies and 6 menacing bosses. Take them down with help from six handy power-ups. No word on whether your ship, like its namesake, is capable of laying eggs.
