So the vast gaming frontier is pretty well packed with shmups of all kinds. Scroll, bounce, dodge, a little running, a little gunning–whatever your preferred action, you can get it in a shooter… and now, that even includes kissing. Which is to say not shooting at all, but that’s how you gotta roll in Kissma. Kissma, a browser-based lip-smacking indie romp, even inspired one writer to call it a “ksmup,” or a “kiss ’em up.”
In Kissma, crazy pixelated heads fly toward your own disembodied noggin, and your massive protruding lips are your own defense. Sessions last sixty seconds, and in that time, you’ve got to plant your lips with abandon if you want to work your way up the scoring charts. Twice each game, a kisskey bottle floats in amongst the heads, and if you drink up, you get a special ability.
If you’re still not quite sure how this horizontal scrolling kisser really works, there’s a handy video with some footage, or you could simply go give it a try.
