Overall, this game would be the ABSOLUTE MEANING of "FREE" ("free" and "f2p" is a very different word, f2p= It's free to unlock MOST of the MAIN FEATURES of the game. While "free" means ALL of the FEATURES of the game) I don't see any part/weapons or stuffs that needs "real money" to get it.

Gameplay's very simple; run, hide, shoot, repeat, don't get killed by those monsters/your own weapon (i.e: disc bullet, fire), and get those crates. Go for a highscore, unlock arenas, weapons, and random characters.

I have 1 problem. TOO SIMPLISTIC. If you've unlocked all unlockables, it would be boring to repeat gameplay. You guys should add another gamemodes in DLC/free updates. It's OK for DLC releases which would cost around 10 cents/1 dollar as long as it add gameplay, or maybe Storyline?

Im about to beat my score of like 20,000,000 (10) then I kill myself with the disk gun.

This game is fast paced, challenging, has freakin EXPLOSIONS!!! and is pure awesomeness.
I recommend this to EVERYONE. This game is always makeing you want to play over and over just to beat your highscore. In the end we'll all end up saying "one more box"

Get this game. It is worth all of the 12 seconds of download, 3 seconds of installation, and hours of time-wasting it has to offer. Especially since it's free. If you don't get this, all the children you didn't have will weep, and their tears will forever salt the fields you plow. You shall never again taste the rewards of victory, and your sheep will cry in fear.

Get this game.

Your non-children need this.

Your sheep need this.

You need this.

I love this game, and have nearly 100% the game on my Ipod, but on PC it keeps crashing and forcing me to restart. When it crashes, steam still says I'm in game, and it wont let me launch another game or close steam, so I have to restart. Just not worth the crashing.

NOTE: This is a problem with windows 8. if you have windows 7 or any compatable OS, then go play the ♥♥♥♥ out of it because it's fantastic.

This is your classic old-school arcade game, except its on a pc and played with arrow keys. Takes literelly like 5 seconds to download, and it doesnt use internet. I play it when my internet's crap, or when i just feel like derping around and unwinding after a long day. It's f2p, but they would be hard-pressed to make money of this thing anyway.

Apesar de ser Free to Play, é um ótimo jogo!
Eu vi um youtuber jogar ele em um dos seus vídeos e resolvi tirar a prova viva para ver se o jogo era bom mesmo, e pode acreditar, é MUITO BOM!
As fases são hiper mega rápidas, com um arsenal imenso de armas pra você brincar e ainda por cima com bons gráficos mesmo se tratando de um jogo 16 bits. Para quem quiser passar o tempo no Steam esse jogo é uma ótima pedida!
