New update to improve original SKH and bug fix

OK another little update day from me, this time for the original SKH Bonus DLC.

This one fixes the menu bug that some people have been having where using the D-Pad on the main menu skips options.

Also a few visual improvments, mainly the bullets have had a little tidy up and are now more 'Glowy' and stand out more.

Thanks again everyone, you're all awesome!!!

Some FREE DLC!!!

Hey Steam people!

As a thanks for being so awesome and increadbly supportive since I released SKH-Resurrection I thought I'd throw you guys the Original Super Killer Hornet as a thanks.

It's not much I know but it's something :)

The orignal SKH is a fast paced endless shooter with maths. It's a little rough around the edges as it was my first game but I hope you can find some fun in it.

So huge thanks again for everyone who's played my little game, I can't thank you enough.

Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection (SKH:R for short) is a game developed by Flump Studios. A bullet hell shooter that originally destined for XBox Live eventually made it’s way onto Steam. I originally was going to write a review for Danmaku Unlimited 2, but this game caught my attention and I decided to try something new first.

Starting with the good, SKH:R is a decent shoot em’ up (shmup for short). Controls are alright, but the hit-box for the ship and bullets can get dodgy at points in the game. The game isn’t as hard as other bullet hell shooters or shmups, making it a good entry point for someone who wants to get into the genre.

The way you power up your ship is a bit annoying. In the midst of shooting enemies and dodging bullets you have to a number ranging from 1 to 11 with a math sign next to it (+, - , / or x), then grab another number (again 1 through 11), then grab the correct answer. Answering correctly powers up your ship, an incorrect answer will power down your ship. Rhythm Destruction had this same issue of distracting the player from the gameplay. Not only do you have to dodge bullets, you have to focus on picking up two numbers, solving an equation, then finding the corresponding answer in the onslaught of bullets. However unlike Rhythm Destruction, this style of powering up feels tacked on and isn’t fully integrated into the gameplay as one would hope. The gameplay is solid, but the overall look of the game lacks polish.

While I wish a bit more polish went into the final product, it is a decent schmup. At $4.99 it's a good beginners introduction into the schmup / bullet hell genre (or for someone who likes a retro game look), however for die-hard lovers of the genre I would pass for other games in the genre at the same price point.

If you don't have a calculator close to you while playing this game you are doomed.

A cheap DoDonPachi with a cheap design and gameplay. We are in 2014, shoot'em up genre has evolved and this one is still in the prehistoric age.
I find the movements too slow, the environment too homogenic, some monsters are really ugly designed with mspaint and the songs are unappropriated. So if you played DoDonPachi or any amazing japanese shmup game before, just go far away from this one.

Just when you know that bonuses give you math problems. Digits fall from monsters you're shooting at and give you a math problem you will need to answer correctly to increase your shooting rate but if you fail, you will be discounted by 2000 on your final score. *facepalm*

Plus, I don't know if it only happened to me but it seems that the game has a screen saver mode. After 10 minutes of gameplay the screen just shrinks and leaves you to a beautiful black screen.

Offers up insane speed, unequaled crash sequences, and a truly new style of gameplay. It has reinvented the wing, so to speak...Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection is astonishing. It's one of the best arcade space shooters I've ever touched.

10/10

Cheap, fun and works with my hori rap vx sa stick. The simple math angle is interesting especially after a few beers. Also I like the music tracks, they are long and help you get in the zone.

I expected a poorly made Dodonpachi clone and I have no idea what i got.

There's some obscure doujin games made to troll people like Kiwami Shooting that are far more polished than this game.

Not only the controls are awful (there's some crazy inertia/input lag going on here), but the presentation and gameplay are terrible.

The only redeemable factor about the game is that you power up by collecting flying numbers and then you solve a very simple math question with them... But there's so much stuff going on the screen that i doubt any kid would get any enjoyment from playing this specially as a math learning tool/game.

I have no idea what the devs were trying to do with this, but you shouldn't waste your time. I know the .99 cent price tag that this game gets on steam every week might seem pretty tempting (Aside from it being on 300 indie game bundles per month) but it's not worth it... Actually maybe if you're really drunk or high you could get some fun out of this, who knows.

A great twist on the SHMUP blueprint, and it gets bonus points for having bees as a focus. I'm inspired to do a 1cc run, which I haven't been inspired to do on a SHMUP since Touhou 7. I might wait for nightmare mode to make it harder...but I might wait for the "all bullets, no maths mode" to save my head when I do.

Also, friendly devs are always a bonus, yet another reason indie>AAA of late.

Great time killer. Music track rocks, helps you get into the zone.
Has an interesting twist.. to gain power-ups you need to create and solve mathematical problems presented to you as you progress through the game.

The game is by means easy, BUT fun and replayable.

Needs achievements (for killing 1,000,000,000 enemies!!)

-Great shmup
-Great music
-Great gameplay

This is like Dodonpachi and Blue Wish, a true bullet hell shooter with a nice twist of math mixed in wich upgrades your weapons. It also has a 1cc mode without the math mixed in so just raw bullet hell game with one credit for the hardcore shmuppers. Different screen modes horizontal and vertical and you can manipulate the screen length and width manually and change the music track on the fly. This game works perfect with arcade stick or controller and is very responsive.

It's a little rough around the edges, but Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection is actually an interesting idea. Take old-school shmup action and throw in some math problems in order to increase your multiplier and power up your ship. The game itself is short, with only 6 stages, but it's a single-sitting game, which makes it infinitely replayable. After beating the game on "Auto-Bomb" difficulty, which is effectively the game's standard difficulty, I've found myself mostly replaying in Survival mode, which is an interesting change of pace. There's also a Time Attack mode, with three difficulty settings, which puts you on a limited timer, which can only be refilled by completing math equations correctly. Playing Time Attack mode on Survival difficulty is a pretty fun time killer, once you've completed the game's main campaign.

The graphical style seems to invoke old-school DOS games in my opinion, which is a welcome change of pace compared to most retro-inspired aesthetics, which go for an 8-bit NES look.

All-in-all, I'd have to say SKH:R is definitely worth the $5 Flump Studios is asking for. I'd definitely recommend it.

If you like DoDonPachi or similar vertical scrolling arcade shooters, get this one. This has a unique way of getting powerups - solving simple MATH PROBLEMS!!! Very SIMPLE math problems that I am sure anyone can do. What's interesting is that if you get the answers right, you gain powerups and score but if you get it wrong, your firepower downgrades and a deduction to your score.

It's challenging when sometimes amidst the bullet hell, you don't have much of a choice but to accept a wrong answer or risk taking a more dangerous path amidst the bullet hell to avoid the penalty but increase your chance of death by bullet in the process. You got to make quick decisions.

Lastly, get the game because the developer is very responsive and supportive to his/her customers' problems and suggestions. Just take a look in the forums and you would realize the developer is pretty active within his community. Buy this great game to support such a wonderful developer!

A really solid and enjoyable shooter.

I found the maths element to be both fun and unique (though I can see it may not be for everybody) also the boss battles and mid level mini games are and absolute blast.

A bullet hell/vertical shmup shooter with a killer soundtrack and math puzzles. Yes, math puzzles for bonuses.

This game is absurd in what it consists of, but man is it good. A rock-solid game that becomes more and more challenging without ever getting unfair.

Pretty sweet. Finally figured out some control options...

so far only able to play in hard mode.

arrows move, mouse seems to do nothing
<Tab> rotates gameplay screen, repeatedly pushing shift+tab will eventually pull up the steam, but you may need to correct game orientation afterwords
f - in / out of fullscreen
w - in and out of zoom?
z seems to be fire....
c is bomb
esc is pause
s is game track

pretty fun once i got it going ;)
