“Pressure is meant to entertain, and believe us when we say it does. It's like an old 2D shooter evolved, with fun gameplay and an addictive multiplayer.”
Vandal Online

“Pressure is fun. That’s why we get back to it from time to time. It’s not designed to keep you going for hours, it’s more suitable for a quick round during your lunch break.”
GamingXP

“Pressure has become a small but entertaining game, that brings you back to the good old years that you spent in the arcade halls. The gameplay is simple and fast-paced, and thanks to the steampunk graphics it's also enjoyable to watch.”

Too simple and repetitive to recommend. My first time with the game, I thought I'd been playing for hours, but it had only been 30 minutes. Which is the opposite of what I want from a game. The graphics are nice, and it runs well. The handling is awful, which doesn't matter much since it's not about precise driving - but it's still somewhat annoying. May be fun for someone looking for a different take on a shmup,or those with very limited gaming time who just want to blow things up. It does have trading cards, which is always nice, but for some reason not mentioned anywhere on the store page.

This game is alright. Maybe. It feels so slow paced. I played the first few levels and found myself bored because of the repititious level design. It's a weird vertical scrolling shooter, and you can control your own pace to even go backwards, so it feels the player is given too much power. Your most common death will most likely be from losing all your pressure from some "suckers" that steal your pressure. I really hate how there is no windowed option, but you can still change the resolution. Even though I got this for only a dollar, it still wasn't worth it then, and it certainly isn't worth it now. Hate this game 1/5

Fun, light hearted cart game. Your go juice is water pressure (hense the title).

The plot:
Get you stolen water back from the evil robber water spa barron! Yes I know that sounds silly, but oh go watch "Quantum of Solace" and say that again.

The graphics are decent.
The game mechanics run pretty smooth.
Controls using either controler or WASD axis.

It rather enjoyable pulse pounding fun.

I seem to be playing a lot of these "pick up and play" casual type games lately, Pressure is another one that I found myself being able to put a good few hours into without realizing.

The gameplay is basically a run and gun type scenerio, you are in your vehicle driving towards the finish line (although you aren't racing), and you have to blow up the bad guys that come out along the way.

There is certainly no difficulty in this gamewhat so ever as you can just hold your finger on the trigger the whole time and smash your way through, especially once you get your hands on a battering ram upgrade for your car and a flame thrower.

Another recommendation for the casual gamer.
