Trackher is a game that appears to have two screens on which players participate in shoot ’em up action. Each of the two halves of the screen have their own unique functions, making this an especially challenging game that requires players to divide their focus.
The trailer for Trackher showed a screen that was vertically split down the middle. One showed a 2D-style level where players were firing at enemies and the other screen showed something similar but in 3D. The left side is called the “Assault Side”: it does not take damage, but it earns points by moving and shooting. Conversely, the right side (which is also in 3D) is the “Recovery Side”. This side takes damage, and so players must focus on dodging all of the nasty things that want to kill them.
There’s a bit more to this game than challenging combat. Leaderboards are a thing, but they’re also permadeath leaderboards. Don’t pull the eject handle and you lose your score entirely! Trackher is certainly not a game for the faint of heart.
Another important thing to note about this game is that it definitely will require a controller. While it’s certainly possible to play something like this with a mouse and keyboard, the developer must feel that it works best with a standard dual analog stick controller.
If Trackher sounds like your kind of jam, you can pick it up on Steam for PC and Mac at a price of $4.99 or your regional equivalent in Steam Early Access right now. You can watch the Trackher trailer below to see this wild and unique game in action — will you dare to try it out for yourself?
