#325 Splatoon

User Summaries (1)

Splatoon is a third person shooter for the Nintendo Wii U. Its primary mechanic revolves around covering things in ink and your ability to swim through that ink. Swimming through ink enables you to swim up walls, hide in ink puddles, etc., allowing for complex gameplay mechanics you don't normally get in traditional first or third person shooting games.

Retro Ink Colors

The ink colors have some nice combinations that remind me of 90s Nickelodeon and 80s blue and pink.
