We have been looking at feedback on pricing for a while now and come to the conclusion that a price reduction is needed.

Hopefully this will help anyone sat on the fence about picking up the game.

Better shooters for free on Kongregate.com... Don't pay more than $1 on this, it's nice, but doesn't worth paying...

Waste of money very boring game. No levels barely any upgrades and once you die, you have to restart.

Can't believe what I paid for this game. I thought it would be an OldTimeArcadeShooter but it's dodge and die.No skill or finesse or depth at all. The graphics aren't too bad but I can't stay alive to see much. If it had been free I would have "deleted all content" by now but I would like to get a little bit of my $'s worth, so I'll keep it just a bit longer. Not Recommended.

"This wasn't cheap enough"

Blast Em! is a cheap little shoot em up that is all about surviving for as long as you can. Chances are, you won't be staying alive for long.

Story
There really isn't one for this game. The Steam store page mentions something about defending the universe from evil alien robots, but there is nothing resembling a story once you start the game. Make up whatever excuse you like for why your pilot is flying his ship.

Presentation
Visuals are very basic. You have your ship, some different enemies, their bright red attacks, asteroids, coins and powerups. Resembles something you might have seen on the old Commodore 64 or Amiga home computers.

On to the sound. For the most part, the music is bloody awful. When starting the game, a track will be picked and played until you quit. Go into the options and mute it the moment you start the game. The sound effects are pretty poor. A constant sound effect for your own firing, another for enemy firing, crap explosion sounds for deaths of either you or them, and a few low quality words for when you start the level, die or grab one of the power ups.

Controls
Mouse only. Don't both if you don't have a decent mouse. Everything is done by moving the mouse, and clicking the left button if you are on the menu. No keyboard or gamepad controls for this game, not even an option for them.

Gameplay
Very simple. Move your mouse. Yeah, that is pretty much it. You mouse controls the movement of the ship, with firing being automatic. Move that mouse around, to dodge enemies and their attacks, asteroids , etc. Use your mouse to fly into coins dropped by destroyed enemies and asteroids. If you want to sacrifice some of your coins, which act as your game score, feel free to fly into a power up like Rapid Fire or Spread Shot, to get a temporary boost to your abilities. Now, continue this as long as you can, because the only way it will end is by you failing to move out of the way of a hazard.

Lifespan
Well, if you want, you can try to rank well on the leader board, but seeing the higher scores, I wouldn't expect you to ever see yourself there unless you are willing to cheat like other users. There are also a number of achievements that are unlikely to keep people playing.

Closing
Short, simple and boring. Not worth the purchase at all. Save your cash and try a free to play shooter like Warning Forever instead.

I would be lying if I didn't say that this game was somewhat...lacking, and that's putting it lightly. The mechanics of the game SCREAMS that it was originally a flash game, as the only user input I can see that works is moving your ship with the mouse. the game does not accept clicks except on the menu, your ship is always shooting during gameplay & you can't even pause the game or bring up the menu (the only other input the game excepts during gameplay is Alt+F4 & that's not even a game function). I would say save your money & find a flash game that's similar to this rather than purchasing this; you're only getting flash-game quality with this game.

Thats it? Really? This can't even be classified as a shoot-em-up, as you dont even get to control the shooting. It's more like "dodge the stuff unti you die". Actually, thats EXACTLY what it is. Don't both with this one, folks. There are flash games with more depth.
