Reviews

“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.”
4/5 – Mash Those Buttons

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.

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

I came for a nice shoot'em'up. I found a game where I need four different fire buttons with limited ammo each. A game forcing me to look out for hidden stuff to unlock new levels. A game that kills me ten times in a row on easiest mode before even getting halfway through the game.

There might be people having fun with this, but I'm disappointed. Why does it need to be so complicated? I just want to shoot some things at the end of a long day.

+Pros
Looks great
Nice level variety
Different than other shoot em ups with some interesting ideas
Light RPG elements with an upgrade system

-Cons
Confusing (but you should figure things out after a while)
Lackluster music and sound effects
Destroying enemies lacks impact (just an explosion animation and the sprite is gone)
There is no infinite ammo of any weapon so you will have to stop shooting often
You will have to replay levels as you need a certain number of gold eggs to advance
You're a chicken

Bottom Line
I played for about 25 minutes and got through four levels before I was faced with the fact that I had to replay the previous ones to collect golden eggs to unlock another level. Not to mention the third and fourth levels just kind of ended abruptly, I thought I failed the missions.

If you love high adrenaline shoot em ups and have a 360, check out Strania instead. Or Einhander on the PS1. Or even either of the Geometry Wars. Not so much this. It's not bad but it's not good either.

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.
