More to it than it seems, for the price, this the perfect adrenaline rush for those who are interested in shoot 'em up games. Ofcourse I also have to give compliment to Savant's amazing soundtrack, making this a recommendation to any fan out there.

This game isn't too deep. The story mode is fairly short, and I wasn't a huge fan of the final boss.

But, honestly, I do believe the game is worth it's price tag, especially if you like the music. The gameplay is challenging, and the endless mode has a lot to offer. enemies don't have much variety, but I believe the game benefits from it. It's fairly simple to understand. You learn very quickly that dodging isn't useless, that certain abilities you thought were useless really aren't, and exactly what every enemy will do.

This isn't a game you can play for hours, but it is a fun game to pick up very once in a while. I definitely believe it's worth the full price.

Doesn't seam like any real effort was put into creating this game. If you go into the config menu change resolution. After changing it the game puts you onto the erase game data spot instead of staying on the resolution option.

(One thing: I played this on offline mode, so that´s why it says 0 hours.)

The good thing I can say about this game is that the sprites look all very good and polished,but the main gameplay isn´t really that exiting. All you can do is roll or jump from one space to another trying to dodge poorly placed enemies with some enemies beeing nearly impossible to dodge from (unless your reaction time is superb). Your ways of defending yourself is by holding your left mouse buttom and shooting some lazers (or whatever it is) at the...robot things that are given no explanation as to why they are there in the first place. I guess this game tried to be an arcade like ...."shooter". from the looks of it, most of the effort was put into the artworks and 2D sprites,as they are indeed worth looking at. (Even had one as my wallpaper at some point.) The soundtrack is basically loops from various Savant Albums (which I all own as a big fan of Savant) and they are all well looped and placed.

As a final verdict I have to say: The presentation is the high point,the gameplay is just shooting and dodging with no freedom at all. All you get is two spaces you can dodge to and if two enemies at once come at both sides, there is no way of avoiding it and that makes this game full of cheap deaths. So instead of buying this...support the actual artist this is based on instead. Search up Savant (his real name is Aleksander Vinter) and just listen to his masterpieces. I recommend you check out his Orakel album first, as I think it´s his best album yet. If you prefer dubstep and glitch Hop, try Alchemist instead, you wouldn´t be disapointed. And if your´re into more experimental stuff, try Cult,it´s very unique but not for everybody. It´s basially a mix of chiptune,piano mixed with electro house and so on.

character flashes randomly is distracting, making you think you got hit and hard to see

also, off screen enemies come at you and you can't see them until it's too late, that's not a challenge it's just cheap

First off I would like to say that you should ignore all negative reviews by people that played the game for less than 2 hours. This is because you can unlock throughout the game 7 CD's that unlock skills for your character. 4 CD's can be unlocked in the main game and represent your basic abilities. 2 CD's are located in the Endless Mode, unlocked after beating the Story Mode once. Using these 2 CD's it is possible to unlock hidden stages in the Story Mode which (amongst other things) contains the last CD.

The progression of the game is pretty much designed to have you repeat some stages as the order of stages to unlock all CD's is the following: Story Mode (first time), Endless Mode, Story Mode (hidden stages). At the time of writing I have played for 5 hours and have gone through the Story and Endless Mode as well the first hidden stage. I have not even touched the additional free content that was added with the GOTY update and am definitely looking forward to it.

Another concern raised in other reviews is the playability of the game using a controller. I have beaten Story Mode with the controller however in order to unlock the 2 CD's in Endless Mode I had to switch to the keyboard and mouse. However I can't say I was disappointed, as switching to the mouse quadrupled my score. This simply due to the precision the game requires later on in the harder stages which are incredibly fun to play and represent the main meat of the game. In reality the Story Mode and its 3 levels are essentially a tutorial that explain each of the mechanics in the game and after mastering these one is supposed to play the Endless Mode as well as the Time Attack Mode and the hidden stages in the Story Mode.

TL;DR Overall the game is amazing but fails to tell you that you are supposed to play the Story Mode more after unlocking some new skills in the other game modes. Well worth the price.

This game, oh boy. if you're a Savant fan, it's mandatory to own this, only the theme of the game was enough to make me buy this, it's probably the most fun, longeve, challanging gaming experience you can get for 2 €/$ here on Steam. You play as the Alchemist, the protagonist of Savant's most succesful albums, (wait for it...) Alchemist. Needless to say, the soundtrack is based on Savant's music, mostly from albums like Cult, Ism and Orakel. Sadly, there is only 6 songs to choose from. the gameplay is really simple. you can move between 2 platforms, you can shoot magic bullets out of your hand. Every 4 CD Pieces you collect, you get a new power, with a total of 6 CDs. the enemies' only attack being moving in your direction and hitting you. once you get used to the game, it gets real fun, i strongly suggest getting this game, Savant fan or not.


the only personal problem i found in this game, is how once you get every power possible, you 1-hit kill every common enemy. i don't really like this, since when you begin to learn the game, every enemy has it's own movements, own attack style. but then, nope, you get override max level in like 5 seconds, and you demolish everything from about 3 seconds after they spawn, washing down the toilet every difference there is between them. but hey, at least once you get past the 5 minute mark on endless mode, it gets actually challanging.

Un maniac shooter, simpatico e con un audio magnifico.
Anche se la modalità storia per la prima volta potrà durare minimo 1 ora , sono 1.99 euro usati meglio su steam

Un Must-Have, titolo adatto ad ogni tipo di giocatore: dal più accanito a quello occasionale, prezzo accessibilissimo e giocabilità praticamente infinita, colonna sonora (ovviamente) da urlo!
