Danger Zone 2 smashes out next week

The former Criterion folks at Three Fields Entertainment are renewing their commitment to smashes, crashes, bashes, and explosions next week in Danger Zone 2. It’s a sequel to their 2017 arcade smash ’em up, which did involve driving cars but was most certainly not about racing.

Danger Zone 2 is due out on Windows via Steam on Friday the 13th of July (ooOoOoOoOo!). It will cost €18/$20.
