Games N Moorer vs. B.ARK

More On: B.ARK

Earlier today, Games N Moorer's Joseph Moorer pressed "Start" on B.ARK, the gorgeous new hand drawn shooter from Tictoc Games. Joseph is a shoot 'em up fanatic, so it should be no surprise that he is pretty enthused about the game. As usual, Joseph runs viewers through all of the game's mechanics, and allows the somewhat surprising (and beautifully animated) opening cutscene play in its entirety - twice, because he seems to love it. 

Released on July 29 on Nintendo Switch and Steam for 9.99 (and currently on sale for $7.99; Joseph keeps saying $8.99, but he is WRONG), B.ARK is the story of an animal crew fighting for survival in a hostile, bullet-filled universe. A recent press release breaks down the story: "When our Solar System faces an invasion of aquatic cyborgs, four unlikely heroes rise in defense. Wearing powerful mech suits, Barker the Dog, Felicity the Cat, Lucio the Bear, and Marv the Rabbit each come equipped with special abilities encouraging cooperation.

"Fly solo or form four-player squads in local co-op. B.ARK’s hand-animated, classic shmup combat was built for players of all skill levels. Side Car mode ensures downed players can stay in the fray by attaching to a surviving friend. More advanced players can face higher difficulties and strategically unleash super-powered combos and earn leaderboard-topping scores."

“We’re fans of both cartoons and co-op shooters, and we wanted to pass on that love to a new generation,” said Abraham Morales, co-director, Tic Toc Games in a provided statement. “We’ve merged our passions into an action-packed game and we’re excited to share it with everyone on Nintendo Switch and PC today!”

If you have watched the stream in its entirety, you will have noticed that Joseph beats the game on the hardest difficulty on the most difficult level. His enthusiasm for B.ARK is palpable as he plays through the entire game. You can tell he loves a game when he starts screaming "Sir! Sir!" at it.

About Author

Howdy.  My name is Eric Hauter, and I am a dad with a ton of kids.  During my non-existent spare time, I like to play a wide variety of games, including JRPGs, strategy and action games (with the occasional trip into the black hole of MMOs). I am intrigued by the prospect of cloud gaming, and am often found poking around the cloud various platforms looking for fun and interesting stories.  I was an early adopter of PSVR (I had one delivered on release day), and I’ve enjoyed trying out the variety of games that have released since day one. I've since added an Oculus Quest 2 to my headset collection.  I’m intrigued by the possibilities presented by VR multi-player, and I try almost every multi-player game that gets released.

My first system was a Commodore 64, and I’ve owned countless systems since then.  I was a manager at a toy store for the release of PS1, PS2, N64 and Dreamcast, so my nostalgia that era of gaming runs pretty deep.  Currently, I play on Stadia, PS5, PS4, PSVR, Quest 2, Switch, Luna, GeForce Now, and a janky PC.  While I lean towards Sony products, I don’t have any brand loyalty, and am perfectly willing to play game on other systems.

When I’m not playing games or wrangling my gaggle of children, I enjoy watching horror movies and doing all the other geeky activities one might expect.
