The Greenlight Groove: ‘The Phantom PI’, ‘Tetropolis’ and MUCH More


It’s a fact that many Steam users don’t check or even notice most Greenlight additions. There are simply too many, making it rather time consuming. Hoping to alleviate this problem somewhat, I bring you The Greenlight Groove, featuring my recommendations from the past week!

Keep in mind that those listed below are by no means the only new arrivals, simply those I gave my ‘yes’ vote. With that in mind, would you kindly help make sure none end up as a potential Stuck In Greenlight Limbo candidate, by voting? Oh and do provide their creators with feedback. I’m sure they’ll appreciate anything, as long as it’s expressed properly (please, be nice).

The Phantom PI Mission Apparition

The Phantom PI Mission Apparition ()
Upon arriving at Ravensmaw Manor, an infamous haunted house which Staxx bought shortly before his sudden (and some say cursed) rise to fame, the Phantom PI quickly realizes that the old house is a maze of strange passages and interconnected puzzles that will require his keen investigative skills to solve.

Super Galaxy Squadron

Super Galaxy Squadron (@NickClinkscales)
Taking inspiration from exemplifications of the genre like Raiden and classic anime like Gundam, Super Galaxy Squadron is a retro-styled shoot-’em-up that believes tradition shouldn’t get in the way of fun. With a forgiving health system and elements taken from shmups throughout the years, plus a one-hit-kill hardcore mode for veterans, the game is accessible to players of all skill levels while still offering a challenge.

The Sheltered

The Sheltered
Players assume the role of a survivor in a world plagued by a deadly outbreak. The government announces their plans deal with monstrous infected by means of nuclear weapons. The plan: to bomb the area and eradicate everything. Lucky enough, there’s a fallout shelter in the player’s front yard – and enough food and water to last.

r0x (Extended Play)

r0x (Extended Play) (@RetroGamerCD)
More avoid-em-up than traditional shmup, r0x (Extended Play) is a simple arcade game where ammo is scarce and you are rewarded generously for taking risks and flying dangerously. Graze rocks, bullets and enemies to recharge your cannon and thrust at breakneck speed through the deadly meteor storm to rack up an epic score!

GunWorld (@m07Games)
GunWorld is a love letter to 8-bit action games! It’s a meticulously crafted homage to everything great about classic game design and action heroes of the 1980s! An emphasis on high challenge and non-linear progression means GunWorld is not for the feint of heart. Players will be challenged to complete a series of levels in any order they choose, unlocking new weaponry as they do. With each new piece of equipment additional options present themselves, encouraging experimentation and repeated level runs.

Acorn Assault

Acorn Assault (@HighTaleStudios)
The squirrel revolution is here in Acorn Assault! The Rebels are revolting against the Monarchy for control over all the acorns in the land. Test your wit against the computer, friend, or online foe in this turn-based match-3 strategy game. Stand up to the monarchy to protect your nuts, or lose your head while trying!


Tetropolis (@NextGenPants)
Tetropolis is a non-linear Puzzle Platformer set in a world that is a puzzle itself. You play as an imperfect tetromino in a society obsessed with falling block puzzle games, to such a degree that even the world is constructed of tetrominoes. As you progress through the game you will discover “control points” that allow you to alter the level. Rearranging the map is not only necessary to create new pathways and unlock new areas, but to solve puzzles and discover the secrets of Tetropolis.

Super World Karts Grand Prix

Rose: Time apart

Rose: Time apart (@corbomite)
Every street has one. A seemingly abandoned house, standing as a testament for time long forgotten. Aevus street is no different, and the house at it’s corner has been at the center of local myth and legend for more than 30 years.
