This game. It had such promise, but...my enjoyment for this game quickly turned into frustration.
Not because it was hard. I mean, it was hard, but it wasn't a good kind of hard.
When a game is hard, but we keep playing it, it's because we know we can do it--that the only thing screwing us over is the fact that we're not good enough, but if we train and perservere, we can overcome the challenge.
This game did not provide this. In fact, what I found in this game was a load of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
I'll start off with what I liked about this game: It had a really good sense of humor. The song you got during the menu screen was also pretty awesome. The dialogue was cool and I think it told its story pretty well.
What got to me was the gameplay though.
It starts off easy as ♥♥♥♥. Level one, you're facing down a boss. Round starts, it's so easy to kill him without him landing a single shot on you. 30 seconds max. Congrats on the achievement.
Five levels later, you're dealing with a small island, narrow paths and enemies flying at you from everywhere. It wouldn't be a problem if the physics of this game were any good! There is just so little deceleration that if you're running full speed and you see a ledge, you're going to fall off that ledge. Oh, and that jetpack? Good luck using it to get back up.
When you have momentum in this game, it's very hard to change that momentum. Slow down? Try again. Turn around because you've accidentally gone off the path due to avoiding an enemy? HA! That's not happening. Jetpack to safety? You don't have the fuel to stay in the air nearly long enough for your momentum to change direction.
Oh, and remember: those paths are not intended to be there so you can navigate them with ease. Really, the enemies aren't even your biggest threat. It's falling off that is! I'm fine with a few areas to fall off, but this game just makes it impossible to do any sort of manuevering once you get far enough.
The objectives are typically to get a certain amount of points in a couple minute timespan. It's not fun. That's not what a bullet hell is. Will not recommend buying.
