To celebrate the new year (you accidentally wrote 2012 once already, admit it), Vlambeer has released a new free shooter. Entitled Techno King, the game has players defending Neo Tokyo from evil invaders as buildings are destroyed and the screen fills with ever-growing barrages of missile fire. Vlambeer's Rami Ismail told IndieGames that Techno King is inspired by the Earth Defense Force series. Strangely, players actually have to destroy the entire city to win.

We snagged a video of us playing (and quickly losing) the game, which you can check out above. Head over to Vlambeer for a free PC or Mac download.
