“A really amazingly well thought out experience. Short but sweet (and incredibly intense!). Unique and quite powerful in narrative - right up there with things like Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, and RoboCop, in my optinion.”
Tobor Prime(Savage the shard of Goshen)

“An open world bullet hell romp unlike any other, upgrade your guns and jump in on the fun.”

“I measure a game by experience I get from it. The emotions I get from the game are as precious as thoughts I have after i exit. And your game started as an experiment. And then it provoked me to make my very frist steam review. And it was noticed by you. This whole story up until now is very good. And I am glad that I've got your game in the first place.”

About This Game

So nauseous pines,

To nothing.

and Dylan Barry (Super killer hornet Resurrection, G.M.O.S.S.E., Zenodyne, Every zig, Psichodelya, Flying V)

Featuring teletext art by ITAF 2014 winner Dan Farrimond

Developed by UK based micro-indie team Rail Slave Games, N.P.P.D. RUSH: THE MILK OF ULTRA VIOLET is an intense, vehicular, open world, arena shooter combined with lite RPG elements and a 80s British bedroom programmer feel. There is also an exclusive track written by British electro artist MANPANICS plus classic tracks written by Dylan Barry, Founder of Rail Slave Games.

“Rail Slave Games are to today’s indie dev scene as punk rock was to the music scene back in the late 1970’s” commented Darryl Still, CEO Kiss Ltd. “I can guarantee you that you will not play anything else like this - it is about as original as it gets”.

//N.P.P.D. RUSH//- The milk of Ultaviolet is a retro-styled game. As a top-down shooter, it is a fairly fun game. It includes a strange story-line which is briefly given to you at the start of the game, with the rest of the story uncovering as you play further. You're placed in the middle of a drug-infused city, as you attempt to destroy your enemies and save your drug addicted allies.

The thing I love about this game is it's unique artstyle and music which accompanies the game quite well. Although this game is quite different, it has a very short storyline. The factor of repetitveness can sometimes make the game frustrating, especially with the graphics. The graphics are decent though the fast-paced, flashing colours make it hard to focus and concentrate on the game.

The game seemed rushed, not because of the intended graphics, though because the gameplay was very short and tedious. It did bring a story-line to the table, and actually was interesting at times. It was a fun and short sit-down game providing a small burst of entertainment. The game can easily be played again, though after an hour of attempting to do it once, it gets fairly boring.

Indie game, N.P.P.D RUSH - The milk of Ultraviolet, tries it's best to bring retro arcade style goodness to the Steam storefront with it's top down shooter gameplay and maze like level exploration, but unfortunately it falls short in a number of areas. Even with the low cost of entry and the fact that it is currently on sale for 20% off as a new release, N.P.P.D does little to innovate in a genre that has been inspired by a plethora of other indie games as of late. The look and feel are straight out of the mid-to-late 80's, but the gameplay unfortunately doesn't live up to the expectations or the intuitive mechanics we've come to enjoy from other modern classics such as Retro City Rampage or Hotline Miami. If you're feeling nostalgic then you'd be better off saving your money for one of those two titles rather than picking up N.P.P.D RUSH in it's current form. The gameplay sounds interesting on paper, but is only interesting for brief periods of time and coffee break style playthrus. In fact it's very hard to categorize or compare the gameplay when it feels like a combination of less complete versions of more popular games and arcade gameplay styles.

The lack of any leaderboards, steam acheivements, or trading cards is unfortunate because those things might give gamers extra incentive to return to the game. The complete lack of an options menu and the fact that there is no gamepad or controller support is also very disappointing considering that these extra features should be seen as a fundamental inclusion for any and all Arcade style games, top-down shooters, and of course platformers, whether it's an independently developed game or not, and regardless that they are made for PC. This is the year 2014 after all.

Here are the pros and cons:

-- The Good (or at least mediocre): --

- Interesting neon graphic style. Very flashy, much like the arcade games of yesteryear.
- Oldschool gameplay, reminiscent of the old Arcade games, Amiga games, Commadore, and Apple games.
- Keyboard and mouse controls are fairly responsive, while also barely forgiveable.
- Gameplay *can* be fun, but only in short bursts.

-- The Bad: --

- The graphics might be a hit or miss for some gamers. You'll either appreciate the aesthetics or absolutely hate them.
- The music isn't very memorable and can become quite repetitive and annoying after a short time.
- Extremely basic user interface.
- No options menu. **No resolution changes, no windowed or fullscreen control, no volume control.**
- No controller support. This is an absolute must for any and all arcade style games or platformers these days.
- Nostalgia can only get you so far. I appreciate the effort, but the entertainment value here is limited.

For now I'd have to say pass this one up. With a little luck, maybe N.P.P.D will have an update or two that will rectify it's problems and glaring omissions. If you're in the mood for retro arcade style goodness then check out Retro City Rampage, Hotline Miami, Aqua Kitty, Love, Oniken, or Muri, all of which can be found here on Steam. You'll get much more value for your dollar out of them.

This game looks pretty cool IMO. However, that's all it has going for it. The camera distance is a killer. You cant see very much at all, and too much of what is happening when you roll around on your "motorcycle" is off screen. The targeting is pretty simplistic, with a movable reticule. Sadly, this was also a poor choice I think. Better if you just fired ahead IMO. Also, the WASD controls feel a little out of place as well. I would much rather seen gamepad support for this.
Overall, I feel this game had some potential, but the issues (and most notably the cameras) render this game virtually unplayable for me.
Still, you can farm cards, and I suspect most people at this point got this as part of a bundle (I did), so no great loss from a financial standpoint, but's really too bad the developers didnt think this one through a bit better.

p.s. There is a 5 minute mission timer, and as I found out when I was idling the game, it starts on the main menu, not in game, so every five minutes when you are farming, you will still get an annoying alarm signaling the end of game time as it were.

This game is actually a psychology experiment to view the human reaction to realizing they paid for this game.

The premis is you move around and shoot enemies and collect women while trying to beat the clock.

The absolute worst part is you get a bloodsmear in the center of your screen every time you kill an enemy. This makes it very difficult to see anything.

On the upside pressing escape instantly closes the game so you can get away from it that much quicker.

Game sucks. I gave it a shot and I thought it was just horrible. Bad messy gameplay and the supposed draw of the old school retro acid look just makes it that much harder to see where you need to go and who to avoid or shoot.

Don't waste your time on this.

Shovelware at its worst. Right down to using slashes to put it ahead of other titles with numbers or letters.

AVOID. If a 'friend' gives this to you, they are no friend.

I don't even know where to begin. Between the horrible pseudo-retro graphics and below-average run of the mill twin-stick shooting, this game is contender for one of the worst I've ever played. There were no positives to this game except that it had trading cards, and even then that was stiffled by the fact you have to play this game for around two hours to get them.

I genuinely like video games and can find even the smallest smidge of entertainment in them, even the bad ones. I was unable to find any such entertainment here. The game is a chore to play and there is no real incentive to actually do so. No plot, no real motivation besides 'do that'. Now, 'do that' isn't such a bad thing in and of itself. Mario would still be just as good of a game if it had no plot due to its addictive gameplay and responsive controls. This game is no Mario.

With a game that has no real story beyond a few lines of text, you would expect the gameplay to be unique or interesting. This has neither of those things. You simply shoot at enemies that could only be described as something the designers doodled up in the allotted hour of time they were given before the game was shipped to release and save junkies. They're reminiscent of enemies from a bad flash game you could find on a website that hasn't been updated since the year 2000. While struggling to find out if that blue blob you're shooting at is actually meant to be something other than a blue blob, you're also struggling with the controls themselves while you try to save junkies left about the city.

In a Shoot 'Em Up styled game, the most important part of that game are the controls. Why in God's green Earth would you release a Shoot 'Em Up that has blocky controls? Why in God's green Earth would you release said Shoot 'Em Up with NO gamepad support? Why is this still a thing in the year 2014? I can only hope and imagine that the developers were unable to provide players with such amenities because they had run out of time within their one hour deadline to get the game finished. It's completely unacceptable in this day and age for these things to not be resolved or dealt with.

Overall this game is rubish and that's putting it lightly. Most of whatever trivial amount of time they spent on developing this game went towards the graphics that are more cringe inducing than they are interesting to look at, and sadly that's probably the main selling point to anyone who's interested in purchasing a game like this. Skip this game, as it's not worth the time or money.

this is a very unique game, unique in that it looks like something you'd have found back in late 80's... a wild time in the game industry... coming fresh off that video game crash... (E.T Phone home...) and looking toward the future with baggy hammer pants, shaded sunglasses and this new fangled gangster rap music....

Although this game wasn't made in the late 80's for the NES, it was made in 2014. I typically love old school or retro games, but this one is just bad. At first I thought it was a NES styled GTA clone but it wasn't.. This game was something similiar to having your colon perferated by a rabid bear. It's just not very fun or very good.

I'd like to think this was made by a high school kid, just getting his feet wet with coding, hungry with anticipation as his future in video game making. Although it probably wasn't..

//N.P.P.D. RUSH is one crazy acid trip that I really wasn't sure was ever going to end. The game is one meaty bullet-hell gauntlet. Although the actual game has some crippling bugs, you can just about finish the goal in the alloted time.

The first major bug is that the time you get to complete your task of freeing people, actually starts before you start the game, it starts the timer on the menu screen, which is horrifying that this somehow got passed basic QA.

Game play is simple, but very very hard to master, essentially driving around on what I would assume to be a motobike saving people while dealing with hoard and hoards of enemies. This game is soul destroyingly hard and it took a lot of offline play for me to finally get to the end by pure luck.

There are far better rogue like and bullet-hell games out there, this one just doesn't cut it for me.
