Very enjoyable space shmup with fun music and somewhat crazy visuals. The tutorial level can be a bit annoying and video options a bit wonky, but once you understand the controls then it gets much better as you go on. Die and enhance your ship so you can be killed in a more glorious manner later on.

This is a good take on the "bullet hell" genre. Not as infuriating as most of the Japanese varients of "bullet hell". It's still frustrating enough to make you want to punch the screen, yet addicting and enjoyable enough to make you say "just one more try..." about 83 times before you realize it's 0330, and you have to work the next day.

Great for playing in short spurts, as you can easily pick up for 10 minutes, die a few times, and then go about your business.

It's really good game i think
This game will travel you to old retro times
But you need to focus on game too much because its hard little bit like you need to upgrade your ship because you cant handle some mode stages if your ship is low.So play more get some powerup orbs then upgrade your ship then you can enjoy the game ;)

This game has become one of my favorite games to play casually when i just want to sit back and listen to music and not have to worry about working as a team rather to just have fun and try to collect the star bits to upgrade my ship and to shoot stuff! I love this game and would recommend it to anyone. This game can be hard at times but that also depends on what game mode you are playing on, and trust me there are plenty of game modes to unlock!

Fun rogue-like, side scrolling, twin stick shooter. It's a good time waster, I find myself playing it in 20-30 minute spurts when i have time to kill.

Pros: You get to blow a lot of ♥♥♥♥ up. Controls are good, ship upgrades.

Cons: Crashes on exit from fullscreen...at least for me...other than that not too much else.
