Japan and Linux

6 березня 2014

We're pleased to announce two big things! First, Ballpoint Universe will be available in Japanese starting today. Thanks to Unity Games Japan, we have a fully localized Japanese version! We'll be premiering the game at BitSummit this evening. EXCITE

Another big dealio--

For our small but dedicated task force, the Linux version is now available! We tried to get everything working the same as the Windows version, however gamepad controls aren't available on Linux.

Anyways, thanks everyone! We're having a week-long sale in celebration of these two events. Enjoy~~

Ballpoint Universe is a beautiful shmup with guns and melee weapons. Between the stages you'll explore the cities like a platform game: running, jumping and talking with characters that tells you the story. The difficult is just right, but if you want a real challenge, try to clear levels flawlessly. There's also an infinite mode to keep you occupied. For this game, you'll get more than your money's worth. On sale it's an absolutely steal!

After playing this game, I feel like drawing something. This game plays like a shmup( Shoot them up) if you're not familiar with games where you're a spaceship to destrory enemy planes or aliens. But what's unique about the game is everything is done in Ballpoint; you're always introduced to new and vibrant art that keeps coming in your face. When I first played this game, I was confused either to say if it was a platformer and a shmup. I feel like the platforming sections are really weak and presents a flaw when you're trying to go to many platforms. Controls don't feel tight so you have to rely on your mouse or keyboard/game pad for the jumping sections. The game works as you collect inkblots to upgrade, buy new parts to your ship which adds a lot of customization to how you want to approach things. You want a sword and gun combo? Done. You want to protect yourself and use missiles? Done. You just want to go commando and use dual melee or guns? Sure thing. Its very rewarding when you upgrade because it helps with ranking on missions. I recommend this to anyone who wants to try it out, the game can keep you playing for hours and it's not entirely hard ( The wheel can give you 40k inkblots if you're having trouble) if you're new.

I want to recommend this game, I really do, but between horrible platforming sections (this game is actually a shmup) with extremely confusing controls and a lot of stuff going on in foreground in shmup sections (making it hard to dodge projectiles) I cannot. The art style is fun and amusing and there are enough upgrades to chose any playstyle you might need. Ranged weapons are extremely weak though, and I very quickly found myself picking up a couple of melee blades and playing the rest of the game with them.

This was a good game for me.

Pro
+ Easy shooter. It's possible to get all achievements in this game. Takes work but it's doable. I got them all and did not have to break that much sweat.
+ Interesting story though it takes awhile to understand. 'Doodles vs Logicians' -war is not something you see in every game.
+ Good looking art work.
+ Different.

Con
- Mouse cursor controller adventure part. Horrible controls.
- Above requires patience and a good aim. Keep that cursor visible and aim with it.
- Can be too weird for some people.

Recomended for people who like shooters and who have an open mind about what that term can actually mean. This game sure stretches that boundary.

All around solid shoot-em-up with good ship customization, but what makes the game stand out is the absolutely astonishing art style. The whole ball pen just look works very well; the limited color pallet is relaxing for the eyes, so you can always comprehend what's happening regardless of how cluttered the screen becomes.

While it looks great for the most part some lesser enemies just seem unimaginative, and the unit variety is somewhat limited, so you have to stick with the boring designs a little longer than you would want. It's not all that long; most will probably get 2-5 hours out of it, but for the price that's a fair deal.

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
