“Humans Must Answer is a great credit to the 2D horizontal shmup world of video games – it keeps to the old defining features of the genre – simple controls, lots of enemies, pickups and challenging.”
5/5 – Invision Game Community

“Each level is a different challenge, and while the game is difficult, it’s fun to play.”

About the Game

Dodge, shoot and explode across the Solar System as a crew of intelligent and dangerous chickens. As the pilot of The Golden Eagle, it's your duty to keep Colonel Ram and Professor Bez safe as they squabble about ethics and who last used the toilet. Wage war against humanity as you battle your way towards the Sun to complete your mission.

You'll manage this task with burning plasma, smoking bullet cartridges, and daring maneuvers through asteroid belts. Some may discover a profound message, while others will be content with sidling harmfully across this horizontal vision of the future that comes handily embalmed with explosions.

  • A horizontal shmup featuring intergalactic chickens, explosions and death to humanity! And explosions!

  • Combine devastating weaponry to dish out the pain! Hatch turrets to deal with your foe two-fold! Destructible scenery, ship upgrades and boss fights!

This game is great! It reminds me of games such as R-Type , Einhander and the unforgetable Thunder Force 3. Great graphics, awesome soundtrack. A truly great shoot em up that should not be missed. Highly recommended if you love old style games with superb new graphics.

This game is way, way too hard. I could pick the absolute hardest game I have ever played and it would still be less hard and less frustrating than this game. It does not take long before each level has a staggering amount of undodgeable fire coming from every conceivable direction. It really is as cheap as it gets. I do not like having to replay a stage 15+ times to beat something. This is not fun-hard, it is just pure frustration at its worst. This games difficulty reminds me exactly of Silver Surfer on NES: undodgeable fire making the game nearly impossible. I actually think Silver Surfer might be easier than this game. Oh and you can also run out of ammo. Yep a ♥♥♥♥ing space shooter where you can run out of ammo. What the ♥♥♥♥ were they thinking? And that your ship has a life bar is a laughable joke. What good does having a life bar do me when I am going to get slammed up the ♥♥♥ in every direction anyway?

Oh and never, ever alt+tab out of it. Yes it is that type of game with lazy programming that crashes when you alt+tab. Not right away, but if I let it sit alt+tabbed for like five minutes, the game will just close without even giving me a error. It just closes.

What a ♥♥♥♥ing mess. A perfect example of how NOT to do a space shooter. Get a SNES emulator and play Gradius 3 instead. 2/10.

This game reminds me of Jets n Guns! include UPGRADE SYSTEMS which is a must for Shump. I've read some bad review comment about this game which is COMPLICATED?? CONFUSING?? , i dont see anything so confusing or complicated. If you want simple NO BRAIN or PLAIN Shump with only shoot to kill using 1-2 button with just pick up upgrades in space, then this game is not for you. Just play a simple game like Raiden etc. For me that kind of simple game is just waste of money which you can complete in short time.

PROS
- Multiple upgrade systems
- Ability to shoot using difference way and weapon combination
- Some mission require some weapon skill (just like Megaman X)
- Close to reality (the ammo or energy is not infinity)
- Not a plain boring simple Shmup with simple pick up upgrades or just shoot to kill.
- Great graphic, music and gameplay

CONS
- no SPEED/BOOST upgrade found yet since the ship move quite slow
(basically the upgrades is not better than Jets n Guns)
- quite slow Shmup
- Not easy to earn money for upgrades


RECOMMENDED FOR ADVANCED PLAYERS.

Pay no attention to that metacritic score. If you like shmups, you will enjoy this. I'm all but certain of it.

I usually don't recommend a game before I finish it, but Humans Must Answer is an exception. From the very first moments you run this game you can see it's high production value. In this horizontal shoot-em up, you control a spacecraft equipped with several offensive and defencive upgradeable systems, fighting your way through various well designed levels. The controls are responsive and sharp with no momentum (thank god!), the graphics are detailed and colourful and the sound effects are also very good. The difficulty can be adjusted in the beginning of the game to suit the skill of each player. Highly recommended shmup and a must-have, especially for the fans of the genre.
