Under The Radar #6: Bobbing, Die For Metal, Syder Arcade HD and more

Well, our Under The Radar column was meant to be something we did once every week or so, but in just the past few days I’ve come across some really good titles from first-time indie developers. So that leads us to our second Under The Radar for the week.
