There's a quaint simplicity about Really Big Sky: twin-stick shooter, drill through planets/asteroids and you can funnel points you earn during runs into improving certain attributes and powers. Levels are randomly generated (as far as I can tell) and defeating bosses and certain enemies requires some thought but isn't an obnoxious puzzle. Additionally you can unlock more modes that are essentially the base game but with extra parameters, greater difficulty or alternate milestones! On the surface it's all really good and the graphics are decent.

It was about an hour into the game that I realised I hadn't the faintest idea of what I was doing: obviously I was shooting ships and (trying) to dodge their attacks but then I would be sucked into a vortex? Or perhaps the colours would invert or suddenly blur? Did I unlock something? Am I more powerful? Does this enemy have a shield? No wait, that shield apparently damages me but another one didn't? I put a bunch of points into some random stats but I don't think they've done anything?

Really Big Sky's gameplay is completely incoherent and this is not helped by the scorchingly bright and blurry visuals. The "library" doesn't help remove the obfuscation surrounding the gameplay mechanics but is full of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ed smug descriptions, which on reflection should have been expected from the atrocious voiceovers heard during the game. Some of the stats are incredibly obvious and very necessary, but a lot of the laser related upgrades often seem to have little effect, or at least their impact is not conveyed effectively.

I got this game for free so technically I got my money's worth, but it's really difficult to recommend this game over pretty much any other scrolling shoot 'em up or bullet hell games on Steam. Admittedly the genre is not "my jam" but Ikaruga is good so maybe start there instead?

Pretty colors, great graphics, however, both these things are the game's downfall.

Once you start upgrading your ship and surviving longer than a minute or two your screen becomes chalk full of pretty effects that cover up bullets and warp your screen so you have no idea what is going on because you can't see anything. The more upgrades you get, the more visuals erode your vision.

Random stuff will happen, such as your bullets moving too slow to actually hit bosses, your screen will go "negative" but everything is nearly the same color which prevents you from seeing further, or giant laser beams will shoot across the screen without warning of where it's going to hit. So when you think you have a good streak going, prepare to be dissapointed from randomness stopping you.

Also there's these nifty little forcefield pods that prevents your bullets from going through the field to destroy the pod. Sometimes these will clutter up your screen moving extremely slowly, or stand still during boss fights. The only way to destroy them is to use a spinning sphere around your ship to destroy them. So you get really close without touching them, stand there for 2 seconds, to wait for the sphere to come around to destroy them. In the middle of the boss fight this is very impractical. During some of those random screen effects, you're unable to see the forcefields at all. In addition, there are "hard forcefield" enemies that kill you on impact as well. These as well you can't see when you're in some of those screen effects.

Visuals 9/10, so pretty, but obscuring.
Gameplay 5/10, visuals too obscuring.
Music 7/10, menus have extremely loud music, ingame has repeating decent music.
Sounds 10/10, very well done, plenty of non-grainy sounds.

Got this free from PC Gamer so didn't really expect much out of it, but it is insane and fun! Sometimes can't hardly tell what's going on on the screen as it's a crazy psychedelic neon light show. Just move around a lot and shoot everything else. Has a few bosses that aren't too bad once you figure them out. Very fast paced, rounds will last from 30 seconds and up, averaging probably around 2 minutes, obviously more if you are good/lucky. I also like the music. Superb game, especially since I got it free.

Overintense, visually demolishing shoot'em up arcade. Makes me ' dafuk just happened ' every time.

Really cool twin-stick shooter here. What really caught my attention is the adaptive gameplay that changes the difficulty based on your play style (more enemies on screen, harder bosses, etc.), the many different game modes and the killer soundtrack. My only gripe is that I wish there were other screen resolutions (the highest resolution isn't supported on my monitor, so I'm relegated to playing the game windowed) and that as the gameplay intensifies it can be hard to discern where YOU are, let alone the enemies and their bullets. That said, I humbly recommend this for people who like twin-stick shooters, challenging gameplay and/or awesome music.

**A DUAL STICK CONTROLLER IS RECOMMENDED**

Summary

Genre SHMUP
Gameplay 85
Artstyle 90
Sound 80
Options 15
Replay 100
Value 100
Overall 95

Gameplay:

  • Control: This game makes best use with a dual analog controller, and I found that aiming with a mouse can get a little congested due to the limited range of resolutions and windowed mode by default.

    This game plays very smoothly and shooting in a full 360° while trying to focus on enemy, bullet, and self placement starts becoming second nature after only a couple plays.

    Transitioning into drill-mode to go through indestructible obstacles is very smooth, and moving while drilling is very precise even though objects will produce a horizontal movement slow.

  • Firing: Your default is a powerful and large laser block that then becomes a rapid-fire volley of smaller lasers. You recharge the more powerful shot just by not shooting for a while, and from what I could tell; the limit of large lasers stored is infinite. You can unlock additional lasers that fire around your ship, as well as a bomb that occasionally fires out that is affected by your velocity as well.

    You also can charge your drill and go into a very powerful (and limited use) spin that makes being still impossible due to always sliding, but you can spin forever if desired.

  • Upgrades: There are only a couple ways to upgrade, which involve either:
    1. Boring through planets that randomly take up the entire screen and fly through upgrade pads for boosts.
    2. Killing enemies, collecting their drops, then using them to upgrade your ship permanently after you die.
    There only appears to be two temporary ammo upgrades, one is just a super powered version of your charged laser, and the other is announced with a quip from the narrator and results in an auto-firing beam that penetrates everything.

    Permanent upgrades are very potent and are why you can keep going higher with your score after each death. A few upgrades include: stronger lasers, a shield to absorb bullets, and a slow orbiting ball that destroys enemy fire on contact.

  • Enemies: Really Big Sky excels with enemy patterns and design, never really seeming "unfair" due to excellent design. The only time the game will steal a cheap death from you is because of a special effect and random enemy placement.

Artstyle

This game is gorgeous to look at with its very vibrant colors and randomized galaxies. If you are simply just a fan of recolored deep-space phenomenon, you will be hooked easily.

Whenever you find yourself inside a worm-hole, the game shifts into a 3D plane, letting you travel down the space-pipe of many deep colors. However, I do find that sometimes it gets difficult focusing on staying centered due to how dark it can get.

There are also many moments where the colors shift and go negative or very dark, leading to their own obstacles. Due to their frequency after a while, I never really felt obstructed by them except for when the screen is very dark and I can't see an enemy that absorbs shots (however, bullets and asteroids are contrasted so avoiding them is fine).
There is even a semi-rare event where floating dinosaur fossil heads breath bullets and fire at you while the background goes black and the screen goes blurrier while everything slows down and an air siren plays.

Enemy design is top-notch, even referencing classic arcade games and styles. This is very hard to explain in text, but just looking at screenshots should clarify.
Bosses all feel adequately boss-like (even impressively so in one regard), although it may feel a bit stupid fighting a giant orb with a shield around it if it never gets to the point it can drop suns on the screen.

The worst part of the visual design is just the shape of your ship, even tho it's perfectly acceptable as is. It just gets overshadowed by how intense the rest of the game is.

Sound:

Techno, a relaxed (and younger) British narrator, and modern mixed with retro beeps and boops come together for a very calming yet engaging experience. There is an option to disable the narrator, and playing the game without audio doesn't take anything from the game; which I say is a good thing due to not everyone being fond of techno and narrators. However, I am, so the sound gets a pass.

Also when you kill the enemy based off of Vector graphics, it dies in a satisfying old-school 'boop'.

Options:

MASSIVE failure. The highest accepted resolution is 1920x1080. The next highest is immediately 1280x720. For someone with a 1600 range resolution, this is disappointing because 1600x900 is still a 16:9 aspect ratio. Also don't expect playing the game windowed if you don't have the exact resolution the game wants; it'll either get compressed or it will just default to windowed.

Also, there are only three graphic options (even tho with a game like this; it's understandable).

The game while windowed is "Always on top" by default and no way to change it.

At least you can: adjust sound via percentage, disable the aiming line, adjust narrator frequency, and also listen to songs you discovered in game.

Replay:

This game was built around dying and restarting with no end besides high scores. Due to unlocking multiple game modes that change how the game is played drastically, as well as just the upgrade system, you can find yourself replaying this game a lot while having fun.

There really isn't much to say because the game was built for this, and it works.

Value:

This game is 5USD on steam right now, and it is the kind of game you can just come back to at any time as well as leave at any time. It's entertaining and definitely worth the money. If this game goes on sale; it'll be double its worth.

That is, if you like SHMUP/Bullet-hell games. If you hate them with a passion; why even bother with reading this?

This game isnt enjoyable, not for me anyway. Its a schmup in the same sort of vein as blast em up. I actually enjoyed blast em up a little more than I did this though. When you first start playing its totally confusing, very hard to pick out what your doing or what to shoot. You can upgrade your ship everytime you die by collecting stars which count as coins, but then even the power ups are hard to understand exactly what they do. The achievements are again confusing, forcing you to look online for instructions and the coop achieves require you to install 2 third party controller emulators. Overall if I was to explain this game in one word it would most definately be CONFUSING. Its a very unusual thumbs down for me, 3/10

What I can tell about this game, well, you can shoot, dodge, and if you're reading this, make sure you like or not arcade games, because you didn't afraid, buy this game!

Obs. Do not play with lights off, or you're going to feel a terrible eye pain, stay cool and enjoy the highest high electronic soundtracks from a "Really Big Sky".

Simply put, this game is a modern version of Galaga - an EXTREMELY CHAOTIC take on the classic with various different game modes and outstanding graphics to boot. For as little as 5$, this arcade style shooter is a steal and you will assuredly get numerous hours of fun.
Comes with in-game achievements and steam cards, now thats just icing on the cake.
Enjoy folks.

It's the best screen-saver ever!!

Well, as long as you only need to save your screen for like 1-2 minutes. Because that's about how long I last!

Is there more trance tracks than the first one?

This review is likely to become massively edited! :D
