PixelJunk Shooter is a twin-stick shooter, with a very big focus on physics (specifically fluids). While exploring the underground caves of a planet, you'll have to interact with lava, water, liquid metal, ice and rock in order to save the scientists who are now trapped.

The story is basically that. You're in a ship, trying to save every scientist. And also collecting hidden gems. Whole it may seem a game about exploration, it didn't quite get to that point, in my opinion. But more on that later.

Let's start with presentation.
The graphics' style is very minimalistic, with soft colours, and yet, it looks great, in my opinion.
It certainly looks unique, and the fluids especially, give it a a special look.
The enemies have a mechanical feel to them, but it fits, along with the Boss Fights.

The music was less of a standout for me, but it was certainly not bad. Just a bit more faint than I'm used to, staying in the background for the most part. It helped with the light-hearted exploration-y atmosphere, I think it was well chosen for the game they were going for.
The sound effects were in the same vein.


How's the gameplay, then?
First off, the game is divided into 3 areas, each with a few levels. Each level also has about 4 (I think) areas to explore, each of them self contained, and fairly small.
The first area is more vulcanic, the second, deeper, is full of ice, and the third, the deepest, has an industrial feel to it.
Each of them has different mechanics associated with the physics. These are all connected to the area it's set in.

You control a little space ship, propelled by thrusters. The movement feels quite great actually, with momentum very notable in the ships handling. It feels great, even though there aren't section to challenge your pilloting skills. It's still good that the tight control is there while you're just flying around.

Then, you have a Hook/Tractor thing to pick up the gems and the scientists you find, and you also have missiles, to destroy rocks and your enemies.

There are also several different types of ships. You'll find modifiers in specific points of the levels. For the standard ship, lava with overheat you, while water will cool you off. Each time you get hit, you don't instantly die, but your heat will rise substancially. To survive, you can either back away, or dive into water.
Besides, you'll find ship modifiers around the levels, for when you need to actually progress the levels.
There is a Magma ship, that shoots lava, a Water ship that shoots water, and can pull ice with is hook, there's an inverted ship, that is hurt by water, and can dive on lava, and there's also a Magnetic ship that repels the liquid metal. These sound, and play really well, but they're highly limited to the levels. You'll only have access to them in the exact section that you need them, and there's no action from the player in discerning which ship he needs for the given section, unfortunately.

In each level, you'll try to find the scientists. You have to deal with all of them in each area to unlock the next one (either save them, or kill them). Every time a scientist dies, you'll lose a life. Your limit is 5, but you'll gain another one each time you collect 100 coins (these are spread around the levels, and also dropped by the enemies).
You also try to find gems, that are used to unlock levels, or just for achievements. Unfortunately, these are very easy to miss by mistake, and you'll have to replay the whole level if you want to 100% it (it is NOT needed, though. I did some thorough exploration the first time around, found every secret area, and still missed a couple of gems in many of the levels. I never had the need to replay levels to proceed though, so the game was designed to keep you going naturally, saving these for the completionists. That's really good, in my view!).
There are also Special Scientists that you collect in your Gallery (yeah, not creepy at all), and these will talk to you, giving you a bit of backstory into their expedition.

The base of the game is out of the way, now.

This game reminded my a bit of Waking Mars. Besides both being about exploring the caves, both are very focused about combining elements (in WM, it's mostly interacting with the creatures, in PJShooter, is with the fluids). While Waking Mars gave you a real feeling of discovery, learning about each species and all about their lives and interactions, that isn't very present in PixelJunk Shooter.
PixelJunk Shooter is a very straightforward game, and also not very challenging. It's something to enjoy casually.

The level design was pretty good, in my opinion, providing good areas to experiment with the fluids, and learn new mechanics without a wall of text. While that was all there and great, the whole game felt like a very big tutorial, in a way. Everything was subtle, but not challenging, and specially not giving the player much freedom.
You'll have everything delivered into your hands when you need it, there's no puzzle solving, or anything, which wasn't what I was expecting. So, if you're looking for an experience of discovery and learning, go play Waking Mars.
If, on the other hand, you want a laid back twin stick shooter with cool physics, give this one a try.

The Boss Fights were the funnest part of the game, for me. They weren't very hard either, as you were pretty comfortable even after getting hit (as long as you were careful). But that comfort gave you the time to learn the Bosses patterns without it feeling frustrating, and led to interesting fights.

I found the game enjoyable, certainly, but in a way that I wasn't expecting. It's very, very linear. There isn't trial and error to understand the fluids, or anything. It's not about learning the mechanics, and then applying them into more complex puzzles. It's mostly about learning on the go, always with simple puzzles. And to be honest... that's fine.
It may not be what you're looking for, but it's good that it exists, for people who do. And it's a very well done game for its purpose.

It's also very cheap on sale and you can easily get it. Go ahead and give this one a try if it sounds appealing!

"Makers of PixelJunk Racers, Monsters, and Eden and just like all their other installments, Shooter specializes in simplicity, familiarity, and over all fun. The music was composed by Alex Paterson and Dom Beken. Anyway enough of the back ground lesson let us dive into the actual review of PixelJunk shooter!

Story: The story is quite simplistic to say the least, to put simply there are scientists who are trapped underground and need rescuing. Your character pilots a twin shooter subterranean vehicle built for blasting through the rock and mud as well as a pod for picking up the stranded scientists along the way you encounter a verity of different obstacles as well as monsters and you’ll be so happy they equipped your tiny ship with guns (very insignificant weak guns but they get the job done….eventually)..."

Pixeljunk Shooter is a fun little 2D shooter with some pretty impressive fluid physics. You fly a small ship through an extensive cave system rescuing scientists and fighting hostile creatures on your way to figure out what's happening on the planet. The levels are all self-contained however rather than being a more open metroidvania-like experience like Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Each level contains multiple individual caves in which you must either save or kill all scientists in order to progress to the next.

Your main enemy is heat with being hit by enemies and hot objects and just being near things like lava increasing your heat meter. Once it reaches maximum you lose control of your ship and usually crash, though if you're lucky you will land in water and be saved. The system is designed very well and helps make ship positioning important to gameplay.

Throughout the game you will be introduced to new enemies, obstacles, and interactible objects as well as different ship mods which let you interact with both solid objects and liquids in different ways. They are all well-constructed and add some nice variety to the gameplay.

I have only played two Pixeljunk games so far, but I found this one far more enjoyable than Pixeljunk Eden. It has much better pacing and better-designed game mechanics. Definitely recommended for people who like 2D shooters or just like playing with liquids.

PixelJunk Shooter is a great mix of shooter and puzzle game, where you must be slick and clever in order to advance.
Visual aesthetics are on very high level and music fits gameplay perfectly.
It's a great feeling to see, that such a small studio is able to make game like this one.
Every level brings something new, so you will never feel bored, and yoy will never feel that you repeat over and over the same actions. I want to finish single-player campaign and then for sure - I will try 2 player co-op (on one screen) with my sister. :-)
I am sure co-op gona bring even more fun!
Highly recommended and addictive - one of best indie games available on Steam.

I was played through the first episode of PixelJunk Shooter today, and while I'm much better at this game with keyboard and mouse then I am with a controller (I'm terrible at twin–stick shooters), it started to get boring. Maybe this game really is just better when played co–op, and people like Michael are constantly griefing you and making you die in lava…

Para su pequeño coste, esta muy bien:
-Tiene una muy buena jugabilidad, es decir es complicado, pero sabes que hacer en todo momento si necesidad haber señales de avanzar a cada 2 pasos.
-La dinamica es simple pero bastante adictiva.
-No he probado el multijugador(2 players), pero tiene muy buena pinta.
-Lo recomiendo 100%, en ese tiempo que no te apetecen juegos como cods, tf2, y otros... Este es el juego ideal.
