Burst Sky – Classic arcade style shooter goes online

1 of the rare genres which is seldom developed for the online gaming platform, classic arcade shooters seem to be unpopular with MMO developers all these years. China’s no.2 MMO company, NetEase, just announced 1 of their own, roughly translated as “Burst Sky”.


In a somewhat simple looking side-scroller, the odds are much higher due to the ridiculous amount of traps and bullets to dodge. Of course, players will not be dead just by getting 1 hit, unlike the arcade ones.

There are 5 classes revealed so far: Swordsman, Mage, Ranger, Researcher and Bombardier. Each will have 2 different class advancements to choose from. Alpha testing is starting tomorrow, with a serious NDA in place.
