This is a fun simple side scrolling shoot em up game, works great with a controller, and the controls are easy to learn. This name sounds like it should be Spider Arcade, while not sure what a Syder is I guess Spider was taken. Looks great with HD visuals in 1920x1080. Shot game but fun and easy to pick up anytime because the controls are simple, only 6 missions but of those six none are garbage their all pretty awesome. Someone put effort into those levels, Id rather 6 short levels than 50 that are just kinda rinse repeat.

Nowadays, when shoot`em up games become awfully rare, Syder Arcade is like a fresh air.
To start with, it`s a side-scrolling shooter with an interesting feature, ability to change the direction of your ship and roam through the whole level freely. Enemies appear on map, so you can plan your moves accordingly. There is no ship upgrading, just four completely different ships from the start offering several tactics. Graphic and effects look great and better than in most indie games, also backrounds of various planets and vast spaces are gorgeous, I even made a few desktop wallpapers. Sound is generally good and won`t dissapoint. Controls work great and responsive with gamepad.
Syder Arcade is short, however few survival levels and four difficulty levels add some length. Problems mostly come from technical side: it takes too long to restart a level, also too many easy ways to overcome challenges. Leaderboards are a mess too. For a shmup Syder Arcade definitely lacks interesting bosses, there are few, but they are similar to normal enemies and nowhere as interesting as the ones in R-Type.

Overall, It`s a good shmup, gorgeous graphical side, good controls and some diversity for both: shmup veteran and newbie.

At first it seemed surprisingly nice. It ditches the standard vertical or hori scrolling in favor of a Defender-style approach (or Fantasy Zone, Uridium, or whatever similar classic you can think of). Also the visuals can be really nice and detailed, and there are tons of explosions, especially with all the mines floating in the very first stage.
Then, however, it quickly begins to fall apart.
The game is riddled with tons of bugs and other nuisances. The third survival stage doesn't end after defeating the last enemy. The second survival stage doesn't end after the timer hits zero. Some gamepads aren't recognized. Enemies sometimes jump across the screen for no reason, occasionally flying straight into you for a quick and cheap death. Enemies don't appear on the radar. Items float above or below the playing field. At two times my spacecraft would constantly fly either upwards or leftwards for no apparent reason. The four ships are extremely unbalanced.
I could go on and on, but I guess you get the gist.

There is a decent at best shmup buried under tons of bugs and other shortcomings.
Too bad Steam isn't exactly brimming with great shooters, but if you're looking for an alternative, I'd recommend Jamestown.

Syder Arcade has its moments. Moments where everything falls together, works properly and where you can sense some creativity, so it's not necessarily a terrible game, but when having to choose between a thumb up or down, I'd go for the thumb down.

An exelent Vertical shooter that no schump fan should miss. apart of the good graphics, music and great controls this game COMPLETE FREEDOM in the level!

that's right, in here you are not forced to go right all the time. you can turn around and start going left, just with a simple press of the space bar.
this awesome rare feature allows for really cool manuevers and to be able to circle-strafe large enemies without being hit.
it also adds a very good challange since quite a few enemies are built around this feature, and will come from behind, be invurneble from the front and have devastating attacks only dodgeble by circling around them.

and to add to all that, there are 4 selectble ships, each with its unique weapon, super weapon and powerups, that allow 4 different playthroughs, althogh, to be fair, the first ship - the Dart, is obviously the best one, making the other ships look fairly weak in comparison, that is a little shame.

but other than that, the game is brilliant. 9/10 GET IT

This game is a throwback to all the R-Type wannabe games from the 80's and 90's. The music had that perfect "Amiga 500" feel to it, and the game's style in general made me think of some of the old shooters from that era as well.

You get 4 different types of ships to choose from with different movement, fire, armor, and special weapon capabilities. Each one gives the levels its own particular flavor of challenge to it. Instead of being a straight up "Fly to the right infinitely while destroying bad guys who attack in predictable patterns" style of shooter, they offer you the chance to flip between left and right so you can turn around and shoot those ♥♥♥ holes that come at you from behind.

Much like R-Type there's a multitude of in-game powerups you can pick up which you find after destroying enemies or waves of enemies, and there's also a plain looking white box style powerup that apparently adds to your special weapon charge. (though I'm not sure how that works exactly because it seemed like I was able to fire my special pretty often).

Also if that's not enough nostalgia for you, there's a variety of in-game graphic filters so you can pretend you're playing it on a 4 bit greyscale screen, 8 bit greyscale, Vic-20, C-64, ZX Spectrum, Amiga HAM (Hold And Modify mode), EGA, CGA, and modern graphics (I may have left something out though).

It's challenging without being too frustrating, it's got just enough bullet hell without forcing you to become the zen master at dodging everything, and the graphics and music complete the experience.

This is a free-scrolling 2D shooter. Unlike most shmups, you're free to turn around to destroy your enemies behind you as well as terminate anything that would dare attempt a frontal assault. It's kinda like Defender, except levels don't wrap-around. In fact if you hit either end of the level you'll bounce away like you were hit by a galactic tennis racquet.

The story is about aliens or pirates or hot babes or I can't remember. Basically it's an excuse to have six stages of blastemup action. You're given a choice between four ships, each with their strengths and weaknesses. Each ships has its own special weapon that does great damage while putting up a temporary shield. Unlike most other shooters, the federation gave you an actual armored ship. In short, you don't die in a single hit, unless you crash into something, or play on the "pure" difficulty which all but removes armor.

The campaign has a decent amount of variety to it. First stage is the bog-standard destroy everything, second is an escort mission (ewww), third you're expected to survive for several minutes. By the 4th stage you're fighting off a pirate armada, 5th has you taking on alien battleships, and finally the last stage you're trying to outrun a storm to destroy a...thing. I think this thing is dangerous to the human race so yeah, definitely blow it up.

There are three survival stages as well. First one can get pretty difficult, you're most likely going to die in 6 to 10 minutes. The second one you have to race through a passage of ice to destroy another thing. I don't get along well with 3D walls in shmups, I tend to do a lot of crashing. I don't know what the deal is with the third survival stage. It's wave-based, but nothing happens after I blow up the juggernaut, no more enemies appear or anything.

The score is mostly influenced by the difficulty. The harder the setting, the better the score. There are a bunch of medals that are awarded for performing certain tasks (dodging a lot of bullets, getting combos, etc) so look out for those as well.

There's not much else to say about this game really. It's not bad, though I think the player weapons are a little underpowered. This is especially apparent in survival stage 1, where it can get overwhelming simply because it takes too long to destroy the boss ships. Also when you lose a life, your ship doesn't really explode and disappear or anything. Perhaps the next ship could fly in from the foreground. Half the time it looks like I just took damage, but now I'm down a life. It's an odd feeling. I'd rather have a brief moment to realize "Yup...I died. I better not suck as much next time." like every other shooter. Also in the third stage, enemy bullets can get lost in the sunny background. This has never caused me to die, but I'll wager it happened to somebody.

And uh...that's it. No really, I've stretched myself thin as it is. Syder Arcade is a decent enough game. It's nothing fantastic, but it checks all my boxes.

Return to the late '80s and early '90s with this side-scrolling shoot-em-up. Reminds one of classic arcade titles, such as R-TYPE and DARIUS. Great graphics and lots of replay value.

A simple and enjoyable (albiet short) Shoot-'em-up. Not overly visually stunning or groundbreaking when it comes to mechanics, but if all you're after is a well constructed left-to-right (as well as right-to-left) shooter, you unlikely to be disappointed.

Nice graphics, nice music, nice shooter game. Its a cross between Raiden X and Asteroids. It's very difficult and quite addicting. The only thing that would make this game even better would be a coop option. I also like the fact that you don't have to grind all day for upgrades like most games.

I would give this a neutral rating if I could. It's pretty good while it lasts, but it doesn't last long. The campaign contains about an hour's worth of content. There's the survival mode, but it's only good for short bursts. Once you've beaten the campaign on the highest difficulty, I can't imagine you'd want to play it much more unless you're a die hard shoot em up fan that just has to get to the top of the leaderboard. If the game were cheaper, I would probably give it a thumbs up, but there are better games to buy if you want this kind of thing. Compare this to a game like Jets N Guns Gold, which gives you like 20x the content for a better price, and it's hard to recommend this.

Love the gameplay, up until death! Then things get annoying. Gamers have been asking for OVER A YEAR for a QUICK RESTART/REPLAY button after "Game Over", instead we're forced to re-enter the title screen, and pass through several other screens before trying again, which is a complete turn off after 2/3 cycles, this aspect of the game is totally contrary to the spirit of the genre! BE WARNED the closest thing to this game getting an "Update" was back in JANUARY, when the dev team promised a *New* Ship, if 100 people retweet an advertiement. Seems to me like they're just too busy enjoying the paychecks rolling in.

I'll recomend this game if I ever... see the Quick Restart Update.

One of the better shmups I've played for PC. This one isn't nearly as polished and intricate as Jamestown, but it's solid. I enjoyed the campaign on the default difficulty, then tried playing on "Pure", which at first seemed ridiculously hard...but after you get the hang of it, it's winnable (and quite fun). The default ship is a good one, and your super weapon gives you a temporary shield, so you can panic bomb.

This game is fantastic. It is everything you could want in this type of game, an updated take on a Galaga- / Gradius- style space shooter. Great soundtrack, great action (even if it is sometimes too hard,) and above all, the graphic filter options are a superb feature. The game gives you the option to customize many graphic styles ranging from 2bit to Amiga to Commodore64 and of course modern HD. If I have any major gripe, it would be the rather unrelenting difficulty, but I play Dark Souls and Super Hexagon a lot, so I don't mind difficult. [ 7 / 10 ]

A very well done shmup, and probably one of the best offered on Steam besides Sine Mora. Sidescrolling instead of top down, with awesome weapon upgrading and honed graphics.

One Shmup to Rule Them All. I've only ever played a few shmups. I can't even remember titles, really. It was a couple decades ago. I just liked them because they gave me that little something extra that my yet-undiagnosed ADHD craved. All I really remember is I really liked the ones that were in space where I could upgrade my main weapon to discharge more energy than my little ship could possibly muster. Great Fun!

This game is... something else. The very first thing I noticed was the array of different visual modes. I don't remember what they all are, specifically, but there is one for every personal computer display I've ever known, a few I forgot about, and a couple I've never heard of. So, if you're craving the eye-strain of yesteryear gaming, Syder's got you covered.

Have you ever been barreling through space, roasting everything in your path, and missed that one weapon upgrade that would make your main gun take up 20% of the screen? Well, in Syder, there is a "flip" control (space bar, by default). At first, I thought it was like in 1943, where the craft would do a somersault, and let fly some screen clearing superweapon. Turns out, "flip" means turn your ship around and GO THE OTHER WAY!!! On top of that, there's RADAR!

Get this game. I got it in the Meridian4 decade sale, for 2.49. It's easily worth the standard 9.99. Get it. Don't ask questions. If you've dug deep enough into the reviews to located and read mine, then you want to game. You know you do. Just do it.

Have you seen the trailer videos of this game? One of them is going through a box of Amiga disks, flipping through games such as Project-X, well it's clear where they got their inspiration from. This would probably be the latest Project-X if Team 17 would still be making games. Even the ships you can choose from are called the same!
Is this game for you? Do you like shoot'm'ups? It's the best i've played in years. It's not impossible, it's not too easy, and when you die it feels justified and your own fault. It is also the ideal 5 minute to waste game, brainless and quick, finger on the trigger action.
