To this day, I have no clue what this game is about, except you need to kill everything, in the fastest, flashiest way possible, without getting owned yourself. Even if something doesn't seem to be hurting you, it probably is, so just kill it.

Is there a back story? Yes, but I don't care. I don't think anybody does, really. Everything is randomly generated every time you play, so you'll probably not hit the same giant whatsit every time you die. You'll die all the time, honestly - you're supposed to get a higher score each time, but that never happens. Or maybe it does, but I'm too busy looking at all the funky colours.

Really Big Sky is a massive time sink, if you let it go there. You'll constantly try to do better and get farther than last time, and be blown away anew every time there's some new whatsit on screen. The music is this intense thumping rave stuff that will drive you bonkers, but it suits this title so well. Visuals are sharp, bright, intense, subdued, and everything in between, and usually all at once.

I highly recommend this title. It's stupidly good fun, for a ridiculously low price, and it runs fantastically well to boot.

Really Big Sky is a very colorful game and really easy to understand.Highly satisfying - provided your reflexes are sharp! If you like hard twin-sticks shooters and can handle a lot of visual distraction, Really Big Sky delivers the goods. It has a great soundtrack, randomly generated levels that keep the game fresh and funny narration. Really Big Sky is also visually stunning and the controls are easy to get used to.While the game doesn't have a lot of different baddies and bosses, it mixes and matches them randomly so that every game is different and always challenging. This game is worth the purchase.
