About This Game

Take to the skies and fight waves of enemies across varied land, sea, and air environments with your highly customizable and upgradable fighter jet! A shoot'em up with classic gameplay, modern accessibility, and unique multiplayer, Revolution Ace adds to the tried-and-true without diminishing what makes the genre great.

  • Fight a wide variety of air, land, and sea enemies with a customizable loadout of more than 20 weapons. Level up to unlock more weapon slots and perks that add additional passive bonuses like piercing and shield stealing.
  • Your armor and shielding won't quit on you the first time you get hit so you can concentrate more on destroying enemies and less on evading bullets. You can also upgrade your armor and shields for a stronger defense.
  • Unique Versus mode features two players competing side by side on their own fields with various ways to affect the other. Send additional enemies, hazards, make ships invisible or invulnerable and more to disrupt your opponent and get the higher score.
  • Play an asynchronous Versus variant with the Battle Chains mode! Each player plays the stage while contending against the extras created by the previous player's turn. Upload your turn globally or send it to a specific friend to compete against. Every link forged in the chain will be tougher than the last!
  • Local and online two player co-op expands the playable area while adding more enemies and modified patterns.

I like it - Though it hasnt got the same typical experience you expect from a scrolling shooter.

You arent expected to whiz through the game even if you're an expert - this is mainly due to the money/levelling system. This makes it great for those that dont mind grinding it out to get another perk or weapon to help with the level theyre on.

I liked this game, a good amount actually.

Though it might be just from playing raptor: call of the shadows as a child

Weapon graphics could use a good bit of improvement

Honestly I'd reccommend this game only to specific friends though, this is probably not a game most of the people I know would like

IMO it still feels early access when its a full release

A fresh modern american styled shmup with online co-op. Online Co-op! More shmups need to be on steam and they also need to have online co-op.

Very good upgrades and weapons customization. Your ship has slots in which you can stick weapons wherever you want. Look at the community hub for screenshots of the shop. You can place weapons on the wings to shoot sideways. You have "scrap" (money for shop), experience points for leveling up your rank (which opens more weapon slots), and perks.

The levels move slow and it may seem like a walk in the park towards the beginning, but don't let that fool you since you can find yourself easily overwhelmed all of a sudden. It's not a "bullet hell game" since there aren't 1000 bullets on the screen, but that doesn't mean you won't run into a bullet infested screen. This is definitely apparent in the later levels. The level of challenge is perfect with this one. It's not too easy and it's not too hard to make you stop playing altogether.

Besides it having campaign co-op, you can split-screen battle a friend to see who ends up with the higher score. There are a few power-ups specific that appear in this mode which will affect the other player. It can either be positive or negative so that you don't just grab every one you see.

You have one life to beat a level, but you have two lifebars. One of them recharges when you stop shooting and once the other one is depleted, you die. Very neat feature.

Bottom line: If you're into shumps, this one needs to be in your library.

An OK upstart of a game, but...

1. Difficulty is all over the place. Even on easy it gets unenjoyable - fast.
2. The game tries to be a lot like "Raptor: The Call of Shadows", a true classic. Tries, and fails miserably. You do get a shop for changing loadouts, you do get a smartypants shop owner, you do get a plane with shields, you do get the top-down scrolling... and not much else.
3. Weapons are ridiculously underpowered, requiring a lot of stay-on-target time.
4. The game still requires polishing, even without the balance issues. Music lags constantly in all the menus, sound design is mediocre at best, and it all requires an old version of nVidia PhysX just to run (builldings falling into pieces? planes dropping out of the sky? we could do without it at no gaming experience lost).

All in all, a disappointment. Even if you see it at a bragain price somewhere, bear in mind that it might be not worth your time. Pick Jets'n'Guns instead if you really are a SHMUP fan.

This game is tops! Reminds me a lot of my old favs Tyrian and Raptor. Infact I have been trying to find a modern shooter like this that has a good campaign for a long time. I like this so much I am going to buy a copy for my brother also.

Not a bad shooter, and the games adds replayability with extras that unlock and a varied weapon system. Music for the game is kinda lame at times. What is up with the pic of the dude in the Armory? He loks like a creepy slavic car salesman..
