The game has a few interesting ideas for the bullet-hell/twin-stick shooter genre-hybrid, but it lacks focus and struggles to follow it's own rules resulting in a highly unsatisfying experience.

Here was my experience.

First thing that struck me was the obnoxiously flashy menu screen. I mean, the bloom rendered the menus unreadable! But perhaps it is my monitor that isn't perfectly calibrated that is causing the issue. I can try to look past that. So let me change the resolution so I can enjoy it in full-screen... wait a minute. Why is there an unsatisfying selection of screen resolutions? The game just reeks laziness now. If your monitor resolution isn't the top 4 most common resolutions, gg to full-screen experience.

I still decided to give the game a shot. I tried the tutorial, but it left me feeling very confused about many things. Why add in the drilling ability? The spinning ability? When would I use each one? What are you talking about "hoops in the nebula"? Perhaps if I play a few levels I will come to understand... Nope. After playing a few levels, I didn't even understand how I died most of the time nor understand what I should have done to stay alive. Maybe the fun is in figuring all this out? But first I got to use my points to level up.

What should I level up? What does each of these do? The description doesn't clarify most of the time nor can I see how the leveling affects my ship. The leveling process is so unsatisfying, I don't even care what I level up as I often feel no sense of progress. Also, why are there two play/back commands in the level up menu? Such lazy menu design.

After playing and dying so many times, I decide to refer to the library archive in hopes of reading up on the enemies I faced. "Know thy enemy" right? Well, it would make a lot more sense if they actually placed images of the enemies so I know what they are talking about instead of focusing on trying to be funny. For the record, their attempt at humor was so invasive, there was nothing funny about it.

I keep playing hoping I get over that hump to where I can start to have fun, but the more I play, the more I realize how rotten the game is. Due to randomly generated levels, each playthrough is unique, but it's also not satisfying because the difficulty feels very artificial and removes the feeling of progress. Also, by adding shields that absorb damage in a bullet-hell game, it removes the threat bullets have at all. I'll bet it was introduced because when things get too intense, all the flashy effects makes it impossible to tell what the hell is going on. So rather than toning down the effects, they removed the core of what made bullet-hell bullet-hell. It doesn't stop there though. What makes difficult games fun? Because the game lays out rules, and defeats you while following those rules. And the simpler the rules, the better. As such, when you die, you know exactly why you died and that reason was you. The game didn't cheap-shot you. Due to all the elements added to a supposedly simple genre, many times it's not clear why you died, and it breaks it's rules quite often, removing any fun from the challenge.

So in conclusion, the game ebbs feebly with nice ideas and flashy effects, but the game lacks much needed focus for the experience to be satisfying. Avoid this game if you can.

"pretty" "artsy" visuals aside, Really Big Sky is basically a game that fills in a checklist of how NOT to design a shmup.

The visuals are simply "crazy" and not in the good, Crimzon Clover sort of way. All of the post-processing effects that do not interact well with each other at all make it hard to see what's going on, and the lack of level design and spongy enemies make playing Really Big Sky a confusing and ultimately pointless experience. (The worst offender is the "retro" mode, which only looks retro if 60's acid trip raves are what you consider to be "retro" in videogames.)

Additionally, the gameplay is not at all noteworthy or creative. The only unique mechanic in this horizontally-scrolling twin-stick shooter is the "drill" option, which allows you to drill through certain objects and collect items. Although this could be fun, the game doesn't do much with it, largely due to the lazy procedural generation and simplistic obstacles, which leads me to my next point, the game is laughably easy - you can take many hits before biting it, and all of the enemies and bosses have extremely simple attack patterns that pretty much everyone has seen before. you may ask "so how does the game introduce challenge over time?" and the answer to this is that it instantly kills you by some kind of hazard or enemy that enters at speeds that you could not reasonably react to, and since the game is randomised it's not as though you can reliably memorise them. Needless to say, this is incredibly lazy game design that any arcade game worth its weight in quarters could not get away with.

This isn't even mentioning the obnoxious narration that goes on throughout the game (which at least when I played it, you could not disable). Hearing a sterotypical british guy say "oohhhhh you ♥♥♥" every second time you die is cute the first couple of times you hear it, but quickly becomes grating.

Really Big Sky is a game filled with unnecessary additions weighing down the otherwise simplistic and boring gameplay, that tries to excuse this fact by shoving in post-processing effects and obnoxious narration to try and be "artistic". Even worse and even more overrated than Sine Mora. Avoid.
