A really fun shooter, which is best played with a controller, and is perfect for a very quick game of a few minutes, to spending hours just trying to up your score, or get to later levels. It consists of an 'arena' in which you can move about freely There are several different game modes each of which have leaderboards, so you can compete with your friends and world. Has achievements as well.
very nice game

Pew Pew Pew!

Shooting and avoiding obstacles is the basic of the game. Really nicely done though. Colourful effects. Many modes to opt from. Personally, I like 'hold' mode the most. Although the concept of the game is simple, the creativity with different modes make the game more interesting. The devs have a sense of humour. You can see for youself in the option menu. This is always a welcome.

Overall, nice casual game. Recommend.

Excellent native 3D vision support. Thousands of colourful pixel are popping out of your screen.
Gameplay: easy to learn. Difficult to master.
Great shooter. I bought it for 2 EUR on sale. Totally worth it.
Check out the demo to see yourself.
I rate it with 7/10.

This game has all the right junk in all the right places.

But seriously, its a highly polished little shooter with great gameplay and suprising satisfaction.

I also own Beat Hazard, AudioSurf 2 and Geometry Wars 3 - and I would have to say that Waves is my favourite in the genre.

The only thing I find a bit lacking is the no MP.

Fantastic twin-stick shooter similar to Geometry Wars but with lots of it's unique gameplay devices. Great soundtrack and acid fuelled graphics.

In conclusion if you like fun, instantly gratifying arcade shooters buy this game, it's well worth the price.

What the description says: In Waves, play as an anti-viral cell in a Neo-Cyberspace arena while your system is being overrun by bugs, errors and viruses and the only solution is to kill every rogue process before it kills you.

What the game feels like: In Waves, play as an MDMA molecule in a Digital Electronica club version of your brain while your mind is being overrun by feelings of sadness, confusion and reality and the only solution is to kill every inkling of the comedown before re-upping.

+ Awesome twin-stick shooter
+ Bumping soundtrack
+ Intense graphics
+ Enemies exhibit a variety of maneuvers
+ Plenty of modes to choose from
+ Easy to play in short bursts
+ Challenge increases the more you play

- Multiplier system can be hard to climb
- Repetitive, but that's what the different modes are for
- Local or online co-op would be magical

Easily worth the price for the amount of gameplay available.

Waves Review - Ace Elite

Waves is a fantastice arcade twin-stick shooter, perfect for wasting that 10 minuetes you don't know what do do with you life on. Or 30 mins. Or 2 hours, Like me.

Gameplay

Waves controls extremely well, with a controller or not. You play as a ball, and your aim is pretty much to blow up everything in the arena to earn XP, to earn multipliers, to earn points. This ball that you play as has a couple of tricks up it's sleeve though, the first is the ability to slow down time, and the second is, after you reach a combo of 10, you can let off this explosion killing everything within a small area. The scoreboard in this game is amazing, it clearly and neatly displays your friends high scores as well as your own when you end the game. It even displays your friends high scores during the game to the right of the screen. This suprisingly doesn't interrupt gameplay at all. The game has several modes, Including: Crunch Time, Survival, Rush, Bombing Run, Challenge, Chase and Hold. Survival, which I would say is the main mode here, as it is just classic roll around and kill everything, you have 3 lives and unlimited time to post the best score and every 10 levels, you gain an extra life, in Rush, you have 2 minutes to earn points, and every time you die you lose 10 seconds from your time, Crunch Time throws you into the arena with infinite lives and 3 minutes to just have fun, and that is what you do in this mode, have fun, in Hold mode, you have 3 lives and have to to stay within a circle of light as it floats around the arena,you have to stay inside this as your guns won't work outside of it, Chase is an insane mode where you have 5 seconds to roll over to these red pads, which re-news your five seconds to live, Challenge mode gives you 20 waves of enemies, and 30 seconds to complete each one. Completeing the challenges, (doing it within an amount of time and stuff like that) will award you bonus points, finally there is Bombing Run, which dissables your guns, and throws down these red pads, you then need to roll over them to pick up the bomb and then go to the green pad before the bomb explodes, when you get the bomb on the green pad, it explodes killing everything. Except you.

Prettyness (or graphics/presentation)

Waves has an awesome art style, everything is very crisp and works well together with the amazing neon glow of everything. Sometimes the screen can get a bit crowded, but this isn't too bad.

Sounds/Music

Waves has an amazing sound track wich fits in perfectly in the background of all this caos. there is also a nice robotic lady-like voice that tells you when your bomb is ready and stuff like that.

Verdict

This is a fantastic game for just 5 bucks considering the amount of content. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys, um, explosions, guns, balls, cool music and robot voices :).

Thanks for reading this!

TL;DR
Has explosions and guns.
Nuff said.

I brought the game because it was cheap on a sale (79p), but it's actually a really good game!

It's an arcade style twin stick shooter. I really like the neon-looking style to fit with the theme of Cyberspace and errors & viruses overrunning the arena. The main objective in most modes is to last as long as you can and shoot your way through the waves of enemies, with each wave getting progressively harder. There are different coloured bugs which overrun the arena, each with a different movement pattern and there is also a virus of hexagons which grows over time filling the arena. These viruses are good for shooting to obtain a "bomb" which you can use by hitting the space bar, but if you wait too long it will wear off and you won't be able to use it.

I love the "Bombing Run" mode, where you can't shoot at all but you have to roll and dodge enemies while going from red hexagons to green hexagons to set off a bomb, killing enemies near you. The dodging enemies can require some good skills but you also get a shield every so often to help protect you, the shield basically pushes enemies back if they hit you for a short amount of time acting like a instant second life.

Also - Achievements! ^_^

Twin joystick shooters tend not to be for me, but I find myself enjoying this game a lot. The game feel is dead on and there's some real momentum to contend with. The player's weapon never changes (I think) and the survival mode is all I want it to be really.

I don't find myself getting into the other modes of play, but they're there if you want them. I'll probably update this review as I play the game more, but if you want something with good game feel and a good few songs then this is a pretty solid $5.00 to spend. I'd wait for it to be on sale or a bundle though. There are other games like this with more content out there.

This is definitely a good twin-stick arena shooter game for you to play. However, it doesn't quite match up with Geometry Wars for me.

Pros:
It's fun
A good time-killer

Cons:
I don't know if anybody else is having this problem but the songs don't quite work always. I have to restart the game in order to hear it.

Rating 8,5/10

I played this game about 3 hours at once. Definitely, I can say it is very fun. You shoot other balls that come towards you. It can be seen as very simple and boring, yet there are different game modes such as rush, survival and bombing run, that I liked and enjoyed most. With them, you can have different gaming experinces

Great Geometry Wars clone with a very satisfying combo system. Nothing feels better in this world than dropping bomb after bomb and enjoying the light show.

Was expecting a Geometry Wars clone.... got something with way more strategy and scoring satisfaction. I got it on sale for $0.99, so I came out ahead regardless :)

Get this game it is an amazing Twin Stick Shooter and I would almost say one of the best. The soundtrack is awesome and the gameplay is fast and intense. Compared to something like Geometry wars it may be a bit easier with the bomb system Waves has, but I still love this game none the less.

I have little time in this game, but it is great. It's no hardcore professional shooter, but it isn't lacking in intensity. It's very nice for just passing time.

A worthy (if unofficial) successor to Geometry Wars; and maybe it's even better than the old classic. Plays well with a controller, but i prefer mouse and keyboard (it's easier to aim that way, in my opinion). It also looks good, and the soundtrack is phenomenal. Recommended for sure!
