Controls and play style are similar to the classic "Cannon Fodder". The game relies on random level design to keep things interesting, but the level randomizer just isn't up to the task -- by the time you finish a campaign, you will feel like you've replayed the same level several times over, rearranged slightly. All levels are subject to a time limit, which is more annoying than invigorating. The RPG elements (equipment, levelling) help somewhat, but they don't have sufficient influence to significantly change gameplay, nor are there enough options to keep things interesting.

- Gets boring fast (not much content)
-Has had no updates in forever and it seems the dev has completely ignored

Bottom line what you do in this game is shoot enemies and blow them up with a few different types of grenades while trying to beat a timer (if in easy mode)

If this was a dollar and your type of game I'd say go for it. Paying 10 dollars for this game is not close to its value. You can hundreds of games for under 5 dollars on steam that are far more unique and get updates and much more content. I cannot reccomend this.

This is, by no stretch of truth, a good game.

It has a style and sound of its own that nicely compliments the pacing and game mechanics. I saw a lot of people bashing the game, and worse still the developer, for abandoning the game.

Firstly I would like to stress that this game is more then can be expected of a lone developer, and secondly that someone releasing an actually complete game is a good thing. Yes I would have loved to have seen a thematic patch back when the game was new, or cards and achievements, but that doesn't break it for me. What killed was the price, and how the game developed into a grind if you ever tried to get your money's worth out of it.

In short this game is worth a look if it ever hits the 50% off bin again, but don't treat it as anything above the change in your pocket aracader that it is.

I can't really recommend this game at a $10 price point.

It's a fun little top down shooter but there is little depth and it quickly becomes repetative as you fight what is essentially the same boss and run the same 3 mission types about a dozen times before beating the game.

I played on the normal difficulty mode and beat it in about 1-2 hours. I don't see much replayablity here.

The soundrack was fantastic, graphic style was nice but that's not really enough.
