Ballpoint Universe: Infinite is an action game released on iOS, Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, Wii U. Is an adventure taken right out of a student's notebook. The entire game was made using ballpoint pen drawings to create an imaginative world to explore. Explore vast doodle realms, and take missions for shoot-em-up action in the skies.

The overall impression is positive. My main issue is the necessity to switch between mouse and keyboard. It is very hard to pass the platforming parts of the game using the mouse and it's impossible to play the sidescroller part using the keys. If only both of them were enabled at the same time, that would totally fix the experience.

Reading messages is not rewarding at all, except those few NPCs who give you the golden sketch.

Relly fun shoot-em-up for those who like a bit of depth with their mindless blasting. This game features some solid ship customization combined with a whole lot of different baddies that make it so that you need to change up your weapon selection based on what you are up against. The line drawn art style is original, if not a little distracting towards the end (there is a lot of strobing and color in the backgrounds especially during the final boss battle). Controls are good, but they probably should have made it so controls were chosen seperately for the platforming and shooting segments. You can change them, you just have to do it manually.

This game is well worth the amazingly low $4.00 they are asking for it. Good deal, great game.
