It's a pretty fun game. Really cool and interesting graphics, and nice shoot-em-up gameplay. Little replay value (I guess you could restart and choose to buy different ship parts), but the amount of content is good.

A really not-that-great game. It looks decent on the surface, until you find out that it's just very poorly designed overworld movement plus some really simple shmup levels.

Remember back at elementary school when you or some other kid in class used to draw little planes, cars, tanks and people (usually stick-men) on books blank areas? Adding little dots as weapon fire making them fight in an imaginary combat, most of the time resulting in a page full of smudges as explosions happened and stuff were 'destroyed'! Well if you miss that, then Ballpoint Universe: Infinite is right on 'point' to satisfy all the doddle commanders out there!

Ballpoint Universe: Infinite is an arcade shooter with some platforming action and lots of upgrades to choose from! To my big surprise, misled by the 'infinite' of the title, the game has a lovely story that you will uncover step by step as you play. You are a newdrawn doodle exploring an 'almost' 2,5D world (there is the concept of depth and you will notice some models to be closer of further away from the camera in each level), in which you will find doddle npcs to talk to, missions to take, a lot of exploring and some platform jumping. At the beginning you may feel that you have no idea why you do what you do or what is your purpose, these are revealed later on the story. There are tons of collectibles to find called 'golden doddles', some hidden in plain sight, while others through fake walls, also acing a mission will grant you one golden doddle! The main game, the shooter part, happens during the numerous story missions or at the infinite mode. The infinite mode, as the name hints, you play till you die. You gain resources called 'ink' by destroying stuff and you can see all enemies and bosses appearing in this mode. Additionally missions award you ink depending on your performance and for any destroyed enemy, you can always repeat a mission to improve it or to get some ink by the defeated enemies of that mission. With the ink you can upgrade and improve your ship, so you do better at missions or infinite mode thus more ink and more upgrades! Your ship consist of 4 parts, 2 weapons, 1 wing or hull and 1 nose. There are many weapons, from melee blades and shields to shotguns and rockets, each with its very own design, effectiveness and fire mode! The wing affects your hitpoints and may add special abilities, like ink magnet, to your craft. Lastly the nose defines what your special ability will do and how many times you can use it in succession. Each and every part is upgradeable up to level 3, upgrading weapons and noses will increase the overall damage of that part, while wings add durability and special skill effectiveness.

By 'right on point', besides the obvious pun, I want to highlight that everything you will see in this game is drawn by hand in notebooks or blank pages. You 'll be able to see the blue and red lines of a notebook page in many places! The models besides the big variety, feel unique and magnificently well made, even in the tiniest details. From ship parts to bosses, combat backgrounds to the numerous levels you will wonder as part of the story, each feels magnificent and carefully made. Even the level design is superb as many of the golden doodles are surprisingly well hidden!

The game has 3 control options, either keyboard, mouse or controller. Each really easy to grasp and use effectively. Personally I favored the mouse for two reasons, one, I felt it was better during combat, and two, it felt challenging to do the platform jumping with it! However it is advisable to change between them until you find which suits you most. The music, while not something exceptional, feels just enough to highlight each phase of the game, either the platforming or the combat! The only negative for me, is that you can't touch the markings that were created in the back of the page after you finished that well made sketch/doodle! Definitely an unappreciated title as it is a reminder that game development can be an art!

DasSpiel ist zweifellos originell und das Artwork kunstvoll. Leider haben die entwickler vergessen, dass es nicht ausreicht, "Kunst" zu machen, sondern das es da auch spieler gibt, die das Spiel auch spielen wollen. Da ist das erste große Minnus, daß nicht erklärt wird, weder wie Gsmepad oder Tasten belegt sind. Auch wird man in einer undurchsichtigen Geschichte völlig allein gelassen. Aber was soll es? Schließlich machen die Entwickler in Kunst, nicht wahr ? Da möchte man dann sicherlich auch gerne in ein Museum für "Modern Art" , was im übrigen auch der einzige Platz ist, wo ich mir dieses Spiel vorstellen kann. Ich aber bin diese halbgaren, nur halb gedachten und schludrig programmierten spiele wirklich leid und werde dieses spiel auch aus meiner Bibliothek entfernen lassen.

not a bad game I managed to 100% it in around 4 hours . the art style is nice, gameplay is good however the platforming parts are awful with mouse but there are options to use a keyboard or gamepad. the missions and their bosses have some variety which is nice and the music can be pretty epic at times too, all in all id say it is worth checking out.

Este juego consta de dos partes diferenciadas : una de "plataformas" en la que manejas a un personajillo,y otra shoot em up (naves,vamos),donde puedes ir cambiando piezas a tu nave.El estilo gráfico es muy bonito,recién sacado de un cuaderno de dibujo.El apartado sonoro es agradable,pero quizás un poco repetitivo si juegas mucho,porque tiene pocos temas.
Punto negativo : algunas veces la pantalla se llena tanto de lucecitas,explosiones y efectos que es difícil hasta ver dónde está tu nave,sobre todo en la pantalla del boss final.No sé si estará hecho así a posta para que resulte más complicado,pero resulta un tanto molesto.

El juego es ciertamente un logro visual, haciendome recordar cuando era niño y hacia figuras de papel y las machacaba con piedras con pasto (efecto de daño...y sangre verde)
Es una propuesta humilde y en base a eso esta bien lograda. tambien me recordó un tanto a starfox ya que hay mas batallas espaciales de lo que me imaginaba.
El mejorar las armas es algo muy gratificante aunque toma su tiempo alcanzar los precios en tinta.
El modo en tierra podria haber tenido un poco mas de complejidad en aspectos de trama y misiones en ella misma, lo que me deja una sensación de gran potencial, sin llegar a ser esto un disgusto.
La rueda de la fortuna es un fraude! jaja, no lo recomiendo porque perderas todo tu dinero de tinta.
Tecnicamente, tenia problemas con la sensibilidad de mi gamepad (xbox360). siempre solia moverse solo hacia algun lado al mas minimo movimiento del stick (tan minimo que ni lo tocaba). quizas solo sea en mi caso. Tambien algunos bugs de musica, lamentable puesto que la musica es genial. (reiniciar modo infinito)
Y ya que lo menciono, el modo infinito se agradece bastante.

...y si, lo recomiendo, sobre todo a los han hecho bocetos en cuadernos y recortarlos para jugar. dibujantes, creativos, gente un tanto loca, oh si.

AH, casi lo olvidaba, junten tinta y pongan de "nose" la pieza llamada "summoner" hahaha, es demasiado genial!

Juego divertido para pasar el rato. Tiene dos partes, mientras andas por ahi es un plataformeo y cuando encuentras a alguien te porpone un minijuego. El diseño es muy original.

This game here, for the price its going is more than worth it. Just to be able to walk around and look at the art style is enough for me It's absolutely beautiful. I'd love to see some clones of this art style work its way into other genres, because im really enjoying looking at it.

As far as the gameplay itself, i have to admit it does leave a bit to be desired. Theres nothing really wrong with it so far from what ive seen, but there isnt anything groundbreaking either. It is a simple shoot em up, with simple controls. Although i see there is a lot of upgrading that can be done to your ship so that may change later on in the game, there may just be tools to come that make the gameplay more complex.

My opinion is, if you're even the slightest bit interested, go ahead and grab it now while its on sale. Hell, grab it while its not on sale. $4? Extremely nice game for that price. AND it drops trading cards, so you could get a bit of that 3-4 dollars back if you wish
