LOCUST, U.S.A.: Arkanoid meets Stranger Things in this Puzzle Game



Locust, U.S.A. is an indie puzzle game created by hwilson and had its prototype version published on the indie gaming platform "itch.io" on January 18th this year. In the game, four boys roam the small town of Locust, in the USA, trying to uncover their darkest secrets.


Right away, we see that the game is a reinvention of the style present in games like Breakout, Arkanoid and Pinball. Add to that the very heavy influence that the game has from the Stranger Things series: everything here in the game exudes this influence, from the characters, psychic powers, a super-secret laboratory, to the soundtrack, in the best synthwave style. In addition, there are influences from Tron and World of Horror as well.


Despite being a prototype, the game is extremely fun and challenging. It is worth playing. You can check the gameplay by clicking here. If you are interested in playing, you can download the game by clicking on the link below:
