Don't let the screenshots fool you that this is boring.
This game is a wonderful 80s throwback that is creative for its design and gameplay, and is something that can only be experienced when playing yourself.
Granted, this game can be daunting for people with bad reflexes, but if you give this game a chance, you may be in one hell of a ride.
And then there's the music.
It's fantastic. I'm one that normally doesn't care for 80s music, but its soundtrack alone is more than enough for a buy.
The soundtrack and SFX really help make this game feel alive, where without it, this game would be somewhat, if not, completely a drag, especially for a game that's heavily music influenced.
I had my settings for the bloom and luminosity effect high to the point where I felt I was enjoying the most of what this game had to offer me. Not too high though, just high enough. (Your eyes will bleed if you max out settings.)
Personally, I think getting the right brightness and the right bloom will really help you have a great time with this game.
So that said, two thumbs up on my end.
But as for the price?
I'll let you justify if buying at full price is well worth it. At this time of the review, it's $6.99, and I personally would say to wait on this to go on a sale. (But then again, I'm always
about looking for sales.)
I got this game with a bundle of 8 other games for $5 overall, so it's like I only spent $0.56 on this game.
But seeing how great this game played, I would be more than happy to spend even $4 on this game alone.
All in all, when you can get this game, it's worth giving a shot. Especially for retro enthusiasts.
