"A sort of Hotline Miami/GTA/8 bit vibe. Only problem is enemies are often offscreen, making the game difficult to manage. Cool concept, bad execution."

“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.”
Desura

“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.”

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 man...it'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 is the only game I need. After playing this game, I quit my job and dedicated my life to completing it and becoming the best Ultramilker there is. My wife said to stop playing it, it's just a game she said. I said "It's not just your average Adventure and/or Puzzle game, this is the Rush of a lifetime." as I proceed to not feed our children. They died a few weeks later. This game ruined my entire life, everything I've worked for, but it was completely worth it. 10/10 it was okay.

//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.

The game is absolute crap, and not worth buying, even for 10 cents.
I'm not going to go into much detail, but the controls are beyond horrible, the engine is rather bloaty.

Save your money, and invest in stocks.

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.

//N.P.P.D. RUSH// - The Milk Of Ultraviolet... The title of the game already suggests this probably won't be the most standard game you've ever seen. Well let me tell you this game is far from standard.

Like Rail Slave Games second game "Uriel's Chasm" this game tries to be unique with their retro look, which is OK as long as the game is fun to play, but that's the part where this game fails miserably.

You play as a robot (at least i think it's a robot) and ride around and shoot other robots and other vermin. The real problem of this game are the graphics. You hardly can see what is what, which makes the game almost unplayable but even if the graphics didn't put you off then there's the hard difficulty and the time limit.

To be honest for me there's no reason why I should want to continue playing this game but perhaps there are some people out there who like this weird style of games.... i'm just not one of them.

//N.P.P.D. RUSH//- The milk of Ultraviolet is a very, very weird game! It's mostly a top-down shooter of sorts, with some light rogue-like and bullet-hell elements. It's a game that you can pretty much beat in less than 10 minutes, but it may take a couple of hours to understand what's going on and be able to beat it.

Basically, you're dying. You've been in some sort of accident, lost your limbs, and are now attached to a motorcycle, with guns for arms. Badass, huh? Everything has a decayed, drugged feel, in a good way. Your task is to collect girls for an unknown purpose (later revealed), and try to survive while you're at it.

You kill enemies that drop money, and you can use that money to upgrade, sell your organs (and be left bleeding out), buy girls, buy more time, etc. Have I mentioned it's a crazy game?

Context
After Uriel's Chasm, Rail Slave Games seems to have become the developers whose games people just get for very cheap, and then do joke reviews on. While there are many legitimate flaws in this game, it certainly does not deserve the way people look at it as.

I played his other game yesterday, and while I recommended it for people who owned it, and wanted a completely crazy experience, I do not think it is a very good game, even at its core. The cryptic biblical theme didn't help either.

With this game, however, while it's full of huge flaws, design-wise, it's also something very unique at its core, and I actually enjoyed it! Think dark Hotline Miami, on steroids. This is pretty much that, although in a smaller scale.

I've bought it for less than 40 cents, and it gives you 3 cards, which you can sell for 9 cents each, so half of the game pays for itself.

Presentation
Alike their other game, there are steam reviewers saying the game's retro look is badly done and very ugly.
Well, the ugliness is completely intentional, and it gives the game a very personal vibe, in my opinion. It's a weird mixture of glitch and cyberpunk. It's gritty and cheesy, but it definitely sets the tone and carries the experience almost by itself.

Mind, however, that the game has many faults when it comes to feedback, and part of it comes in visual form.
This is because you get blood on your screen when you kill enemies (the one introduced after release doesn't, due to a bug...). This would look like you're the one being damaged.
However, when you're damaged, the screen gets blue, and can often pass unnoticed.
It's ... not good. You'll often die because you didn't realize how close you were to death. It's unfortunate...

Thematically, it's very cool looking!

The sound-effects aren't very high quality, but again, help to set the tone. Didn't find them very good at all, but hey...
The music is also a mixed bad. It's mostly an amateur industrial metal. It's very noisy and low-fi, and I'll definitely not listen to it on my own time. Yet, it adds a lot to the experience. Most people will find it completely awful at first listen... the whole game feels like that. But if you can put yourself in the right mindset, you'll find that it's a very cohesive experience, design-wise, and thus creates a great atmosphere to visit for a short while.

Interface and Options-wise, it's pretty horrible. Besides, half of the things do not exactly work as intended. Your preferences always reset when you get to the menu (either by starting the game, or finishing a run), the timer starts counting on the menu rather than when you start a run, etc. Still, the most important option for me was the game's volume (no separate sliders either), and that could be changed at any time, by pressing "+" and "-", so that's fine.
You always have to click when the cursor is on "back" to go back. Many people, myself included, simply press "Esc" to go back, and that closes the game immediately. There isn't any sort of saving, so you may lose a few runs by mistake like that.

Most of the dreadful first impression comes from this. The developer has said that he doesn't like making options menus and the like and wants to express himself. I can understand that, but the result is a game that seems to have be hammered together. And, for most people, it's definitely a big wall to their enjoyment, leading the the whole joke circle jerk around the developer.

The game didn't feature any menu, initially, but it was updated after release to have some options. It was appreciated, but it explains many of the bugs. The menu exists, but the game hasn't been changed to accomodate it...

Bottomline is, it's probably the game with the roughest edges I've played. The interfacing is absolutely awful, and the presentation very unpolished. Still, if you can get past that, you may enjoy yourself!


Structure & Mechanics
In this game, you need to save 30 girls, spread through 5 floors. After that, a passage on the 5th floors opens up, leading you to the final Bossfight.
It's a simple twin-stick shooter. You move with WASD, and aim/shoot with the mouse. The menus are the same.
I don't know why people mention the controls as being bad. I thought they were fairly good. Sure, it does not have gamepad support, but it's no the end of the world.

Perhaps people didn't notice that you're on a motorcycle, so you move as in such. It felt pretty good, to me!
Besides, your guns have a very high rate of fire, and make the enemies seems like butter, at times.
The camera is also very close to your character, which may hinder gameplay for most people. Honestly, I was waaay past that when I played this game. It's the kind of thing you can play for 10 minutes, be challenged, and then put it down.

Each floor has a different configuration, and you'll have to learn their layout to plan accordingly. You have a time limit (which you can increase with money), so it's important to know where to go. The levels are also full of enemies, some of which have a very bullet-hellish pattern. There are only 3 enemy types, though.

There's a shop in the begining of the level, and it's also your "staircase" to change floor. In the shop, you can buy one weapon upgrade, time, girls, and then there are 2 things with a heavy penalty to them. One, is buying health, but losing time. The other, selling your organs, for a big amount of money. Time doesn't tick when you're in the shop. However, once you sell an organ, your health starts to decrease, as you're bleeding out.
While the intention would be for the game to have a very subtle balance between what the player buys, it can be cheesed (haha, obviously!). While that may seem a bad thing (and yes, it is bad design), it opened up a speed-run competition on the Hub, where people are trying to cheese the game faster. It's amusing.

When I first beat the game, I beat it normally, by using the shop only to buy the weapon and time. I explored the levels thoroughly, and collected the girls. It took me more than an hour to understand what was really going on, haha! After that, I cheesed the game, and half cheesed it a couple of more times. It was fun.

The last Boss is in a small screen, with bullet-hell patterns. It only has one phase, and there are situations where you can't avoid to take damage. Still, I never died against it, and I'm not particularly good at these games... The Boss fight is also independent on the rest of the game, so no need to worry about health or anything else.


Conclusion
The game is very, very imperfect, and really bad at times. However, if you manage to ignore that, and even the sub-par design, you'll be left with a very unique experience, and quite fun at its core, I've found! I won't play any more than these 2 hours, but it was almost free... Besides, if you're into getting into the highest scores, the game is quite fun to play with.

For the vibe alone, recommended! Otherwise.. don't.

This game is pretty horrible. I kept playing it for as long as I did, because I wanted the steam cards. Level design is really bad, and you are driving around in what looks like a bike, but you access different floors by a stairway? It doesn't make any sense. There isn't enough time even when you buy extra time to save all 30 freaking people. Steam overlay also doesn't work. Apparently the timer also starts even if you are just sitting in the main screen.

Also, I turned the volume down in the options just for it to go back to the default once the timer expired again.

I feel like they did little to no bug testing on this game...

This psychedelic pixel-splatter of classic arcade madness has been tempo-spatially ripped from some filthy arcade in an alternate dimensional, post-nuclear war Chicago, circa 1985. It is probably the closest I'll ever come to fulfilling my dream of making out with an oleaginous, three-eyed (and quite disturbingly hot) biker chick against a busted Pac-Man machine.

I give this grindhouse coin-op quickie two thumbs up! It may not be everybody's cup of radioactive tea (as you can probably see from the reviews), but I say it's worth a few filthy effing quarters to find out if it's yours. You slimy mutant dog.

Conceptually and aesthetically interesting, but it fails as a shooter. Every kill is accompanied by a large blood splatter on your screen, regardless of your distance from the target. This is constant, and is hugely distracting. There are enemies that emit familiar bullet-hell patterns, but the jittery movement of your bike and the zoomed-in camera leave you utterly unable to deal with most threats. If the camera were adjustable and the blood splatters were turned off, this might be a decent game.

This game gave me cancer ... but it also gave me trading cards, so I got that going for me which is nice.

Buy this game now and you will get 82 Megabytes of pure evil and disturbing ♥♥♥♥♥♥*t. "//N.P.P.D. RUSH//- The milk of Ultraviolet" is almost as bad as "Uriel's Chasm". The graphic is retro, but not that kind of retro which you might like (e.g. Hotline Miami). The soundtrack is simply awful. The gameplay is super weird. The story becomes not accessible to me. Overall this game is not even worth 99 cents, sorry.

This game is a indie retro action game, you're a person attacked by the nox and the police managed to save you but at the cost of your humanity you lost your arms,legs and face,now you're attached to a bike and form part of the nppd rush team.
The game is pretty simple, rescue 30 junkies across 5 floors and meet the boss, but the game is also very hard like most retro arcade games, the game captures the retro visuals and sound effects very well and it's really fun to play, requires a lot of skill and practice to even get pass floor 2.
Price is decent 4$ for a retro arcade game is more than worth it for everyone.

Avoid this game. There are problems before you even start the actual game. When you boot up the game, there is no mouse cursor and the arrow keys don't work. Only through trial and error was I able to figure out that you had to use the A & D keys to move the arrow. But when you try to hit the enter key, it does absolutely nothing. Instead, you have to press the mouse button.

In the config menu, there is no way to change the key settings so you are stuck with what they give you. You can lower the volume but it tricks you into thinking that you actually had control of the volume. If you wait a minute on the config screen, the volume magically goes back up to full. Even if you lower the volume to silent, once you start the game, there is sound.

Now onto the actual gameplay, if you can even call it that. This is a top down shooter that is trying to look like the games of old. But the graphics are ugly and the backgrounds are distracting, making it hard to see what is happening on screen. The point is to rescue all the people within the given time limit. There are enemies and you have a gun on your vehicle but it all seems unnecessary. The enemies don't do enough damage to even bother shooting them. Gameplay basically boils down to a maze-like runner, hoping to find all the people before time runs out.

If you paid for this game, you should demand a refund. The only redeeming thing that it has going for it is that it has steam trading cards. Just let this game run in the background for a hour and collect your free cards. Remember to turn off your speakers or unplug your headphones because there will be sound, no matter how hard you try.

Not very good at all, don't be fooled by the neon and the interesting visuals. Very poorly designed. Disorienting in a way that does not compliment the design at all, just messy. Poorly executed. Swing and a miss.

Do you want to get seizure? Because this is the way you get one! Also music is horrible. After playing only for few minutes my eyes are melting and my ears are bleeding. It's hard to understand what is happening on screen.
