Crazy game. Awesome and hectic top-down shooty action. Bright colours, a good sense of humour and an utterly fantastic chiptune soundtrack from Syphus, this is not one to miss.

Levels are randomly generated, and get larger as you progress. Lots of unlockable 'grenades' with all kind of effects from standard explosions, to healing and teleportation. Adjusting your approach on the fly based on what grenades you have is great fun.

It's kind of a shame the controller support is only sorta-implemented though.

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.

This is a really underrated fun arcade dual stick shooter with colorful graphics, levels are randomly generated, the enemies are varied and challenging, and the power ups you can pick up in each level are great.

If the devs patched in full controller support in the menus and not just in the game it would be amazing.

Fun little dual stick shooter with controller support. Random worlds but fairly limited enemies. Grenade based combat works quite well, however you find yourslf hoarding some of the better ones for tough bad guys which makes the normal fighting prominent
