“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.

Key Features


  • 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!

  • Explode your way across the Solar System in non-linear fashion, with sprinklings of a silly-serious story to dip your beak in and levels that will delight eyes and scramble brainwaves!

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.

Honestly, I only got this to compare against JnG and my own thing. To be fair, it's got a few interesting aspects that are recognizably mutated from mechanics in other genre entries.

But the ship is so infuriatingly slow at the start that I'm really not inclined to keep playing. Sure, it's just the beginning, and I'm not expecting a fully upgraded Atomic Emu up front. Something on the level of the free starter ship from JnG, maybe, but I suspect this thing might actually handle worse than JnG's space race pirate ship, possibly even the unupgraded cargo ship. I feel like a Predator pilot yelling "CLIMB YOU PIG" moments before the engine cuts out and the drone just falls out of the sky.

It's not a great feeling.

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.
