At first glance this game doesnt amount to much, the graphics are terrible even at the highest setting, you can not adjust the controls in anyway.... which was of particular annoyance to me due to my mouse being overly sensitive, and theres also no controller support.... atleast there wasnt for my xbox pc controller. The game in general boils down to how long you can survive without crashing or being hit. This sounds alot more simple than it actually is due to a obscene amount of items on screen at once, such as bullets, coins and ships. I myself wouldve put this down within minutes if I wasnt intrested in completing the achievements and once you give this game a little time it shows its true nature. Theres quite abit of strategy that comes into play..... you see you can get power ups, these wear out over time and so need renewing, you also have to pay for these power ups, so you find yourself juggling wether its worth collecting them or waiting for the next to show. If you die straight after picking one up then your score reflects this as score is coins. Something I havnt seen many people mention and thats the music, although only a few tracks play in repeat and after awhile they do grind on you, there pretty decent, one sounds terribly similar to oblivions theme tune, the film with tom cruise. Overall this game is simple beyond belief... but I find myself enjoying a quick blast on it and afterall thats all it ever offered. Its cheap and cheeful 6/10

The biggest problem I have with this game is that too many things look similar to each other. Enemies, bullets, coins... they are all similarly sized and similarly colored (reds and grays).

This makes it VERY difficult to determine whether something coming at you is something you want to collect, or something that will kill you. With the sheer amount of stuff on screen, this is a big problem

If the creator had bothered to use some different colors and enemy sizes to make things easy to tell whether it's friendly or harmful. Unfortunately, because of the poor coloring and same size of enemies, bullets, and powerups, I can't recommend this game because the difficulty is artifically hard from bad design.

A fun arcade game for $2.99. It's a tiny game but you'll put hours into it. It's a really quick space shooter.

I like to think of this as a mini-game, considering there's no plot to it, nor is there a story. You simply press, "Play," and you're off to slaughter millions and millions of different enemies that come into your path once you reach certain points of the level.
Yeah, you shoot things, collect coins, earn achievements, and all for $2.99.
There's also a leaderboard portion of the title - it takes your Steam name and splats it all across the galactic world for all the other heroes to see.
It definitely brings the achievement ♥♥♥♥♥ out of me as well.
Also, it's not often someone sells their source code for cheap.

I didn't really find it added anything to the standard shooter formula.

This is a great little bullet hell game, but don't expect to play it for hours as there is no depth or story here, just the need to kill and not be killed.

As you fly along the constantly moving screen, you must decide if you want to sacrifice your score to get the normal power-ups (multishot, rapid fire etc) you see free in must over games like this. Whilst this is not entirely unique, it brings a little urgency to what is really a very simple game.

The music in the game is terrible, the graphics simple and there is only mouse control - but what the hell I paid less than a quid for it.

Load the game and give a blast for a few minutes a day and you wont be disappointed.

I love this game and am highly gonna recommend it. This game along with Hotline Miami has given me inspiration to get into video game development :) love the mouse controls. Maybe in the 2nd game if you guys ever make one you can create at least a progress level, autosave and also a health bar. Very addictive :D

This game goes for I think a little under $3 definitely worth it considering the amount of fun it is and how simple it is, let me rephrase that the concept and controls are extremely simple, living more than 30 seconds, now that's where skill and luck comes into play. I got a 75% coupon from crafting a badge which makes this little gem cost only 75 cents, so if you get a coupon like that you have no excuse for not at least trying this one out, it's a great way to wake up in the morning too, nothing get's your heart rate and blood pressure up quite like this one, hell my heart's racing more than when I play Outlast XD

Where is the "eh..." recommendation? I am a huge fan of shmups. Normally they fall into two categories: Pattern recognition or Luck. This game is really neither... There is no end that I can tell. You just go until you die. I picked it up for something like 40 cents, so I got my monies worth. But at full price? No way!

ok... if you have this game you obviousley (idk how to spell) crated the tf2 badge and well... we all have (unless ur a nub) and you got the coupon and it was only like $1.50 and wished you bought something in the summer sale instead were utterly sad but since this is a review i have to actually talk about it.... ugh. so basically its a shoot'em up game many hard achievments no upgrades... and you have to get a high score. to get a "score" you have to shoot the enemys then they drop coins BOOM YOU HAVE 1 POINTS OMG YOU GOT A POINT NOW SPEND 5 MINUTES ON THE GAME AND GET BORED (could have just got a better game) THEN LATER YOU STOP PLAYING THE GAME (3 years later...) OMG I NEED TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC OR SOMETHING OH I GUESS I UNINSTALL THIS GAME SINCE I NEVER PLAY IT the end. (oh yeah its a space game) XD (based on my thoughts take all questions to my manager THE GARBAGE CAN !!!!!) now the end kinda.

I agree with what most people say, for 2 dollars this game doesnt have much to offer.
Yet if you are feeling bored and have nothing to do in discount for 1$ it might be anice fun to go game to reach certain seconds.

If ur really looking for something action like i recomend getting Super Hexagon earlyer.
I enjoyed this game for a small 30 mins/60 mins tough, achivement hungting that is.

This game features a constant, headache inducing camera shake that makes the game utterly unplayable. Thankfully, one of the three configuration options is a screen shake slider. After disabling that particular feature, the game is unexceptional. There are a million side scrolling shooters on the market, and no reason to play this one.

The game is a classic top down space shooter. A very good time-killer. Addicting gameplay, both simple and hard at the same time.
