This game is reminicent of old fashioned quarter dropping arcade days spent at the mall killing a saturday during the summer. It is as addictive as it is pure fun. The graphics are colorful and the interface is non-obtrusive. Truly a hidden gem among the thousands of cooperative games on steam. This one is a shining example of simple and well executed game design.
The added bonus of challenging gameplay combined with just the right amount of shoot and loot. You will laugh everytime you level up, which is every 3 minutes. Well worth my time, and I have a young son to take care of. My time is limited and this game is easy to drop in and drop out.
Coming from an indie developer, this game is top notch. There are only a few minor bugs and no lobby system but I have enjoyed every minute played.
10/10
Oh yeah don't forget...the slow motion never gets old. Grab this game. Well worth it and usually there is a coupon on coupon dumpster if you're thrifty.
I'd buy that for a dollar. ;)
Bonuses:
Local and online co-op
Easy to pick up
Fun as all get out
Will remind you why you game in the first place
A great game that looks good and keeps you hooked

Cool sound effects. 7/11


+ Works fine with keyboard and mouse, but has great controller support.

+ Surprisingly fun in short bursts.

+ Very nice to look at.

+ Should run well on even a lower-end PC, on all but the highest graphics settings.


- It will take a while before you're able to upgrade your equipment and successfully take on later levels. Playing the randomly generated levels, in order to earn what you need to upgrade, helps keep it from getting too old too fast.

baught this game for 80p this morning...worth every 80pennies, love it already ;)
(2hours play in)
it seems to be a continual easy to pick up & play game,
mainly grinding to advance upgrade character & weapons
(much like games like spiral knights in a way...but this not F2P ;) ...its 80p instead today :D)
the games engine is nice and smooth,
graphicly i love it (chunky cartoon shader..not a realism game hehehe)
itsa chunky gfx 2stick (i recomend xbox pad etc for this) isometric action game :)

as said before...if you are looking for a quick easy to pickup isometric action game....
that is great for local co-op (and the multiplayer online experince i have had so far has been fine and brilliant too!
(0% lag or trouble & good gamematching etc..)

2 hours in and i am still very happy with the upgrade/progression system..
and being a demo-feind...yes..i am concentratting on my grenade launcher to see what it can do :D

all in all.. i think this is a very nice polished indie action isometric game...feels slick to play on xbox joypad..
personaly i love it for those pennies :D

only thing missing is,.. voice communication..
but to be honest..
thats no biggy...
if a gamer that uses TS or Ventrilo...or...one of the many many other (even steam overlay) audio chat ;D)

oh 1 other downside..but another No biggy.....
on my strange resolution screen..(3840x1024(3screens))
... some of the graphics...like when near death red flashing overlay etc.. doesnt quite stretch correctly for it
...but thats..no big problem to me at all :D
(i know i play in strange resolutions)

80p = lovely game for price ;)

Very good Arcade-Style shooter with simple, easy-to-learn gameplay, an amazing soundtrack, and a complex item system. This game is extremely entertaining and I recommend it as one of the best of its genre.
