RGCD

"Visual atmospheric old school spaceshooter with a hint of innovation."
Syder Arcade is an old school 3D sidescroll-spaceshooter with very nice graphics and one innovation - u can turn in both directions, instantly. :D

Pros:

+ great controls
+ great lvl background design
+ good graphics
+ good sounds
+ 8bit inspired music
+ 4 different space ships
+ full X360 controller support
+ 2880x1620+ resolution support
+ trading cards

Cons:
- only 6 campaign & 3 survival levels
- & don't expect a deep story ;)

Really great 1$ HumbleBundle deal...

This is the most fun shoot em up I've played.
Graphics as well as gameplay are top notch.

There are issues though as well:
-The 3 survival leaderboard achievements only seem to trigger randomly.
-The last campaign level at the very final stage causes immense lag which makes the game near to impossible to finish on pure difficulty.
-The loading times are pretty annoying when you play survival levels at pure difficulty. One mistake and you're out and you need to go through all the selection and loading stages again... why not just have a quick retry option?
-Playing with a retro filter on increases your score by 10%. I hate this. Why are you forcing me to make the game look ugly when I want to go for the highest possible scores?

You definitely should give it a try when you haven't picked it up yet and it pops up in future bundles again.

Awesome refresh of a retro Classic. Much like R-type, but you can reverse your direction like Defender. Excellent buy on sale or full price!

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.

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.

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.

It's simple. It's oldschool. Every aspect feels like it came right out of an arcade game that devoured a paycheck's worth of quarters. In fact, the only thing missing is the coin slot--and that's a good thing, because I'd not be able to make rent if it took quarters. It might be short, but I can't remember a really long arcade game. If you have any appreciation for oldschool shmups, definitely get this one. It may not be as popular as some of the others, but it's so densely packed with substance it may end up being a black hole for my free time.

If you like arcade shoot 'em ups, you will probably like Syder Arcade. There are a few gnarly bugs, and the campaign is pretty short, but the game is generally challenging and enjoyable.

It's no bullet hell to end them all, but it's a fun game that builds on sidescrolling shooters such as Defender in a unique way.

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.

Enjoyed 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 aaaand watch an animation intro sequence before getting back to the start of a level, which is a complete turn off after 2/3 cycles, this aspect of the game is totally contrary to the spirit of the genre! Because of this, I've lost interest in progressing in this game.
BE WARNED the closest thing to this game getting an "Update" was back in JANUARY of 2014, when the dev team promised a *New* Ship, if 100 people retweet an advertiement. This games support is pretty dead and gone.

Very clunky interface, can't skip the end credits when you complete the campaign so you have to wait ten minutes before you can quit (might not actually be that long but it feels like it). Storyline is pointless and gets in the way of the action. Some of the sounds (voices) are irritating. Gameplay is mediocre. I would get this only when it is heavily discounted and even then I can't recommend it.
