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.

So this will be my second review of the game. Hope you guys find it helpful and if so, a thumbs up would be appreciated, thanks. :D
--------------------
Scoring Guide
1 - 3 Terrible
4 - 6 Decent
7 - 9 Good
10 Perfect
--------------------

So after writing my first review, I had a chat with the Dev (which you can see in the comments below) and decided to put a little bit more time into Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection. I booted up the game, played all of the modes, killed all the things, and now feel like I have my review to write.

[Gameplay] 8/10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So the Gameplay is rock-solid, the best thing about this game in my humble opinion. There are Three different Ships to choose from. The first being average damage and average area of attack, The second having a lower damage but higher area of attack, and a Third with higher damae but very small area of attack. They all felt very good while playing them. I did find the higher area of attack to be the best one, although this may just be personal opinion. If i had one complaint about the Ships would be the lack of a boost/quick dash button. Sometimes I feel like that would help things out a ton, and would add a nice other level to the game. Deffinetly not needed, but I would have liked to see one none the less.
You do have bombs, like in most other games in this genre, and they work the same way. I'm not 100% on if you can refill the bombs, it may have said something in the tutorial that I missed, but other than that I did not find a way to.

The main difference in this and others in the genre is the math. "Destruction is just part of the equation" is exactly what it sounds like. In certain game mode, there are numbers that will fall down, such as 7+, a few seconds later another will fall, such as 5, Lastly 3 other numbers will fall, one of them being the answer. You must solve the problem and you will get a multiplier to your score. I will say, as I did in my first review I am not a fan of this. It is not bad, and it is well done, I just am not a fan.

As in game modes, this game has quite a few for an indie title.
You have your regular mode, as well as an easy mode in which it will automatically use one of your bombs after you get hit.
Time Attack pits you against the clock, and gives you a max multiplier at the start. Doing the math in this mode will give you +30 seconds to the clock, which I actually like alot more than the regular mode, not sure why it just "feels" better to me. Personal opinion I guess.
Lastly you have a survival mode, which has no math, you have one life and max multiplier.
The game modes are well varried, and you can play around with them and find your favorite.

So I'm not sure weather to put this under Gameplay or Design but think it may go best here. I did have trouble seeing the numbers sometimes while playing. As this is a bullet hell type game, I won't say this is a huge problem, and it may be just me, but i felt like sometimes i got "cheated" out of the correct answer because of so much stuff going on on-screen. Again this may just be me and being bad at the game, but if I had one major gripe about the gameplay this would be it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Design] 8/10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The design of the game is pretty good for an indie game. All of the menue's look and feel fine while navigating them, and the particles are actually very well done for an indie game.
Now let me make it clear that there are better looking indie games out there, but Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection looks just fine, no complaints here.

The enemy ships while being generic are varried in design, and while I only reached the 2nd level, I will say I do find a certain charm in the enemy design. I would like to play farther, just to see what else the game has in store for me. Bosses are the same way, although I will say I only reached the first one as I did not beat the second level. Again I would like to get farther, just to see some of the other boss design. :D
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Music/Sound] 6/10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The music in Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection is solid. The intro had me hyped from the very beggining. It is a metal/rock track and gets you ready to blow some ♥♥♥♥ up.
There are a total of 5 tracks and they are all prety good, tho not amazing. They seem to get quite repetitive, quite fast, and would have liked to have seen a different type of music in the actual game. You can switch tracks in game with the press of a button, which i greatly appreciate as not enough games do this. All in all I would say the music, while good, is the weakest part of the game.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Conclusion] 7/10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All in all I feel like Super Killer Hornet: Ressurection (love the name by the way :D) is a very well made indie game and deffinetly, if you are a fan of the genre, worth your time and money. For the fair price of $4.99 I would deffinetly recommend this title.

Thanks for reading doods.

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.

A pretty weird arcade shooter. You solve math problems in order to power up your ship and increase your multiplier (and the converse is getting a problem wrong will power down your ship and decrease your multiplier). It's a pretty unique mechanic for an otherwise basic shooter game with a pretty awesome soundtrack and some freaky-looking enemies.

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.

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!!)

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.

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.

-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.

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!

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

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.

Я нашел решение.

2. Нужно включить Windows Media Player в компонентах Windows.
3. Перезагрузитесь.
4. Играйте.
