Drifting Lands from French studio Alkemi brings a hybrid of genres yet unseen until now. Alkemi blends shmup (shoot’em up) side-scrolling bullet-hell with action RPG elements where loot is key. Drifting Lands is a new type of game for other developers to follow, but will be hard to duplicate how well Alkemi put this together. Drifting Lands also serves as an introduction to shmups without being overly difficult or impenetrable as sometimes the series is known for.
