"Do you recommend this game?"
HELL. YES!!

This game is amazing on so many levels. The gameplay is ALWAYS action packed. The music is enchanting - you will be dancing to the beat of the music in this game. You can, and will die quite a number of times, but it's all worth it.

And the best part: the game is less than 2 bucks on steam. And that's not even on sale either.
Give steam your money now.

Very nice. A very different game, and comes with free music that's worth more than the money you spend on this game. You can compete indirectly online (score system) with ridiculously good opponents. It's generally very fun - and gets better as more updates come along. Really quick to download because it's also a nice compact game.

This is the coolest Shmup I've played in a long time. Unique gameplay twists accompanied by great artstyle, responsive controls, and a bangin soundtrack. This game is less than a bag of chips and 69 times tastier. If you enjoy shmups at all definitely pick this one up.

One word for this game; Awesome!

What I Love
1) Amazing soundtracks (6 unlockables). If you love Electronic music, try this game :D
2) Bullet-hell dodging. It will pump your adrenaline. Shoot there, jump there, and move there xD
3) Endless and Time Attack Mode with Leaderboard.
4) Achievements! :D
5) Cheap but tons of fun.

What I Hate
1) Story mode, too short. You can finish the story in 30mins :/

Overall 9.5/10 "Too epic"

let me admit, I purchased this game for its soundtrack. The way the music perfectly intertwines with the hordes of grunts rushing at you is oddly therapeutical.

Having the giant worm try to kill you without the music in the game would defeat the purpose of this game and just make it damn plain boring, mostly because of the way the music sets the mood of the game. The music perfectly suits the game not because it is dubstep, but because of the way it is aggressive.

Listening to songs like Kali 47 or Bach to the Phuture while killing grunts is a good concept of the game because when the music starts you know what to do, it's as if it's hardwired into your brain that you know you need to kill them. But that theory is not all that far off due to the fact that that is a main aspect of the game.

All in all for $1.99 this game is damn well worth it

Remember back when highscores were a thing? Where the only thing you cared about was a number? This game will take you back to the good old days of arcade gaming, with tight controls, fluid and fast gameplay which never gets old, GREAT music, and some nicely done bosses. There are some insane point multipliers, and an amazing endless mode. There are strategies to be developed, and a great reference to Nintendo, whom I also love.

TL;DR This game is amazing, worth far more than just $2. Buy it if you love mindless shooting.

This is a great arcade style game with original gameplay which is very surprising since most arcade games that come out nowadays are a remake of something or a new version of something else, very detailed animations with great aesthetics and amazing music.

It's a mixture of a run and gun shoot em up (Metal Slug) and a arena shoot em up (Geometry Wars) where you are locked to 3 directions (Left, Up, Right) and you shoot enemies from every angle while trying to not get hit by them to build up your score (And not die since you can only get hit 3 times) with some small but very interesting twists from the enemies and the enviroment.

Absolutely recommended for someone looking for a simple game to chill and be satisfied with for short periods of time, there's a lot of replayability if you care about the unlockables (Music tracks/Powerups) or high scores.

As an audiophile.. and a fan of electronic music... I cannot recommend this title more.
Great beats, amazing yet simple gameplay, all tied together to make a really addictive, pulse pounding arcade shooter.

Getting to the "gamer high" is very easy with this one.
Autozoning on nothing but the game for 5 minutes at a time whilst leaving your eyes watering simply due to not blinking is common, at least for me.

Seriously,
This is the best $2 you can spend on Steam.
And I do mean that. Period.
Better than what you'd buy on sale for less!

There’s elegance in trying to craft something compact but wholly satisfying, even if it means making a seemingly small game like Savant: Ascent. Just like a good arcade title, it can be completed quickly, it’s highly challenging to do so and there are enough replay possibilities to last ages. Pour that into some Neo Geo grade pixel art and attach an entrancing soundtrack to it and the result is a recipe for sweaty palms.

So, this is a game where you play A MOTHER♥♥♥♥ING ALCHEMIST FIRING MOTHER♥♥♥♥ING PEW PEW MAGIC BALLS AT STEAMPUNK ROBOTS.

Besides, the music is Savant.
tl;dr 10/10 it's okay - IGN

An interesting take on the twin-stick shooter. The right-stick shoots, but the left-stick, instead of moving in the direction you point, has you jumping between two platforms. What's also intersting are the CDs which when unlocked not only change the music but upgrade your character's attacks. The graphics look really nice as well. Just don't get too distracted while playing...

I have mixed feelings about this game.

As for the graphics: they're beautiful. The animation is smooth and the character design is great. I never get tired of saying of how great they are for a game that's worth a few bucks. And while it depends on your personal music taste, the music is great to listen to as well.

I was really dissapointed to find out how short the game was. I managed to beat story mode in 30 minutes! Not only that, but I find the gameplay very repetitive. It's always the same map, and the same enemies. The setting changes a little as the gameplay goes on, but the only thing that changes is the color and difficulty of the same enemies over and over again.

I also find it frustrating how the game doesn't expand to fullscreen, unless it's just happening to me. My mouse often goes off-screen and I end up moving the window and having to re-adjust the whole game window.

Overall, the game is fun for a few hours then it just gets old unless you enjoy playing repetitive games. I hear that there are more features coming in the future- I'm interested in checking them out.

At first, I was a little disappointed at the gameplay and I thought the music was alright. The game proceeded to flip my head over in about 5 minutes as I blew up hordes of enemies in vibrant colours, all in a rhythmic fashion.

Definitely worth more than a measly two bucks.

I'm sure there are lots of people down there in the recommandations that will tell you how fun this game is but in case you're still hestitating, let me be strictly mathematical: this game is 2€; on Bandcamp, a track typically costs about 1€ and there are seven tracks included in the game.
Do you see why you should buy it?

Below you'll find both a video and written impression on the game.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mXDHaZ31rM

Savant features brilliant visuals, audio, and simple but challenging and addictive gameplay. It's only 2 bucks, and the meat of the game is fantastic! Honestly, you can stop reading now, sacrifice just one vending machine trip, and purchase the game, it's good.

But if you want to know more, then know this. Though the game play is enjoyable, and the presentation top shelf, it's a small game. There's not a lot in the way of extra features, even the options menu is relatively lacking, and I suspect the difficulty, though satisfying, was cranked up to hide the game's low content. But with that said, know that what is there, is exceptionally well crafted! Think of it as fine cuisine. You get just enough to be full, and while you were tasting it, it was some of the best you've had, except this game doesn't come at the cost of fine cuisine!

If you've made it this far into the impression, just ignore every thing you read and buy the damn game. Once again... It's good!

Pros:
- Simple but challenging and addictive gameplay
- Fantastic audio!
- Twitchy gameplay!
- Fancy buzzword visuals!
- It's the cost of a damn candy bar!

Cons:
- Low price, means low content
- Options menu could use an overhaul
