I like the game, but it uses the background to make the game more difficult. Sometimes you'll run into enemies because they are hard to see thanks to the background, and worse yet, that's how the developers wanted the game.

It also gets hard at 4:00 minutes into the game and this is a game best played in small, short, gaming sessions.

I play it about 15 minutes at a time.

I still like the game, but suggest getting it bundled or at least 50% off if you find a coupon.

It's a cool game. Usually play it inbetween my dota games to ease my match making anxiety.
The music is kinda good, suits with the game but it gets repetative after an hour or less, so I use my own playlist.
Now the only thing I need is to find someone to play with.

It's a fairly decent twin-stick shooter... even though it brings nothing new to the table.

I personally really enjoyed this game, it brings back old arcade games like Geometry Wars in its own unique way. The game has a very benefical concept of easy to learn, but hard to master, which I really liked. Check out my video for more info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibmBOoWwo4M

Pulstar is an addicting "shooter" with amazing graphics with an interesting art style. It features special abiilities, unique enemies, and room for complicated playstyles. This is not a game you will play all the time, but find yourself playing while waiting for updates, friends to come online, and during short breaks between games. The sounds get repetitive, but the soundtrack is decent. It has a tiny almost obsolete story, but being the arcade game it is, it really doesn't need one. This game is simple, but in an overall good way, but it has it's complexities, mostly those of which you will find in it's playstyles. It is well priced for the game it is. Overall, this game mixes phenomenal lighting, graphics, and difficulty into one of the most addicting arcade-like shooters to date.
-8.5/10 would buy for $5 and under.

A twin-stick shooter a la Geometry Wars. Enemies can be a bit hard to see agains the dark blue background, but that's part of the challenge. Simple game, and cheap to boot.

I haven't played an arcade game that I actually enjoyed since Geometry Wars. This game brings back the brilliance of simple yet challenging arcade games. It's easy to learn to play but difficult to master therefore this game has a brilliant balance between the two. Check out my video for a brief look at the gameplay of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOZ0yIz2Rtg&feature=youtu.be

When you pick up a shiny bubble you get acid trips.

I am enjoying this game quite a bit at the moment. Affirming other reviews, this game is easy to learn and hard to master, I am still at the padawan level :)
I like the idea of a local multi player game, but think an online co-op would be an awesome update.
Thumbs up.

Really good game for the price. Also, I'm a sucker for these types of games; reminds me of Geometry Wars. For about 5 bucks you'll get your money's worth of frustration, enjoyment, excitement, and rage quitting. But you'll be back, trust me.

Hope they add more features. But overall it is pretty addicting.

This has been fairly fun to play to far. Each game is very short, lasting a matter of minutes. It looks like the longest game played in the online highscores is only 10 minutes. The controls aren't customizable so if you're playing with a mouse, be prepared to hold the left click down until your hand cramps, because that's the only way to fire, and you don't want to not be firing (why isn't this automatic?) The game's contrast also leaves something to be desired, as it gets difficult to see the bad guys coming at you. Also, since the screen is rectangular instead of square, enemies coming from the top and bottom of the screen are much more dangerous than the same enemy from the left or right.

With some improvements, this game could be more fun. Not bad for a couple dollars.

This is a fun, quick game in the vein of Geometry Wars. Art style is eye-catching, and the gameplay is rather slick I would say. The waves of enemies get exponentially harder around 4-5 minutes, so the game is quick, with the highest scores lasting only on the order of 10 minutes. Simple power-up and bonus system and the online ranking and personal best tracking encourages replayability. 9/10
