Acerca de este juego

It's the future! And humanity is, predictably, under attack by extraterrestrial forces. Lucky for us we have an experimental ship that's never before been flown that will surely...uh, possibly...well, implausibly be able to win the war! All we need now is a pilot or two.

Key Features

  • Fight through five increasingly-populated shoot-em-up stages
  • Destroy a plethora of enemies (or, as we like to call them, "potential explosions")
  • Switch between two distinct weapons on the fly: bullets for lots of damage over lots of space and a locking beam for concentrating on those hard-to-reach areas!
  • Use your shields to zip unharmed through enemy attacks!
  • Overcharge your weapons on the fly for even more destructive power!
  • Original faux-orchestral soundtrack is like music to your ears! Because it IS music. For your ears.
  • Multiple game modes, from the start-at-any-level normal mode up to "I have but one life to give for my planet" survival mode.
  • Local co-op allows you and a friend (or even a complete stranger that you're willing to invite into your home, if you want) to team up and deliver double the delicious destruction!
  • Support for playing in portrait orientation for a true top-down shmup experience!

Es un juego de naves con scroll lateral sin pausa, en principio es un tipo de juego común.

Tiene una jugabilidad base en los niveles que está centrada en un tiempo y en una división de los enemigos. que se asemeja a oleadas: deberemos de acabar con una oleada antes de que venga la siguiente. El scroll lateral sin pausa está fijado a la jugabilidad. Los enemigos son en general pocos, durillos y con personalidad.
El control de nuestra nave también está diseñado para hacer frente a oleadas, el estudio sabia lo que hacia.
La dificultad también es muy importante. Es del tipo adaptación: cuanto antes comprendamos como va el juego antes ganaremos. Aunque es un tipo de juego común, la dificultad no lo es, por lo menos en este género.

At first, Procyon seems like a great horizontal shoot’em up. Graphics and effects are bright and crisp. Price is suspiciously low (but there are no upgrades or more ships). Soundtrack is decent and narrator creates a nice futuristic atmosphere.
One of the things that I liked was ability to combine your guns with shield. There are two type of shots and each makes much more damage combined with an active shield.
Anyway, there are more than a few problems. Biggest one is very bad level design, there player are often swarmed with large groups of enemies, with mostly a random chance to survive. In addition, there are only 5 levels in an entire game! Devs probably wanted to stretch the length a bit, by making some levels way too long. Believe me, its simply too hard to avoid those pesky ships for 10 minutes and then die near the end of level to restart again… Well, the game does not end with this short campaign. There are survival mode, more difficulties… But it doesn’t matter because all feels unbalanced and repetitive.

Procyon is an innovative shoot'em up, but not really a fun one and way too short to leave a solid impression.

Super fun game that really gets everything right. The fact that it's so cheap, and includes tons of awesome Steam features, is all just gravy on top of a really fun hori shmup! I also absolutely love the mission control narrator -- so f'in hilarious!

All in all, a very nice game -- with nice graphics, UI, and sound too!

Beautifully presented. The story hardly exists, but Command's voiceover and cutscenes are a riot to listen to and watch.

Gameply is spot-on. Every weapon abiliity and enemy is thought out and placed perfectly in the well-crafted stages.

Yes, it's short. Yeah, it's pretty easy. Don't let that dissuade you from adding this to your tab on the next sale.
