Played this game when it first came out on the app store on my 1st gen iPod touch, actually won a contest and the creator of this game sent me a glow in the dark t-shirt and a personal sketch of the Caster guy jumping out of said iPod touch. Still have it all in a box somewhere in my parents basement back at home. Anyways. Great game. Nothing too special but a nice third-person arcade shooter with a upbeat disco soundtrack and destructive environment! Love this game :)

not bad; it was pretty short and sprinting is a pain until you actually buy upgrades for it (affordable like 5 minutes in) then the whole game is pretty badass. Shooting can be irritating since the aim moves slowly but there's a lot of AoE and homing weapons you get along the storyline. Only criticism is it's really short, but it is 99p and even goes on offer a lot.

If you like late 90's/early 2000's era trance and d'n'b then you already will like the sountrack (one hip-hop track also).

The track on the first trailer is Future Prophecies - September (Camo & Krooked Remix).

In the game itself you simply run and jump around shooting enemies (and trees) while trying to avoid being shot at. Different missions have different monsters and environments. You upgrade your various abilities with gained experience. Fun little game i would say. Definitely worth the money it's going for now.

Ok, I bought this game for 14 cents and I'm gonna write a serious review and not "bought the game, sold the cards, earned a cent, profit".
Pros:
+Many options, you may change resolution and keys and sounds etc.
+Difficulties - you can play it on 3 difficulties.
+Reminds a PS1 game (for those who had one)
+Keys are comfortable to play
+Detailed tutorial
+Controller support
+Has cards
+Combat is pretty good
+Community made levels (?)
+Many save slots
+Cheap (even in full price)

Cons:
-No story at all
-Needs achivements
-I said in the 'Pros' that the combat is good, but, you can't stand still, or you die
-Enemies do too much damage
-Graphics aren't too good and the character's face is scary
-No background music
-Enemies are pretty the same
-Enemies that get hit just turn red again and again until they explode, it's cool for the first minute but then gets boring

Neutral:
~Dash after level 1 is imbalanced

Bottom line:
Recommended with a score of 6/10

Caster is an action packed adventure game with a retro feel that brings back memories of Playstation 2 and Gamecube games. Despite the poor graphics, the game is kept interesting by the multitude of unique levels and environments and the actual gameplay is incredibly fun. The controls are also very smooth, however I wouldn't recommend using a gamepad because aiming and adjusting the camera angles was very annoying. The electronic soundtrack was also great and fit the game perfectly. I also really like how the combat actually shapes the environment. Creating giant craters and canyons while blasting at enemies is a real treat and sadly, is something we don't see too often in games. My only real complaint is that it's not very challenging and the game itself is very short. I also would have liked to see a more engaging story out of Caster. It's mostly just focused on the action without any real character development. Nevertheless, it's a pretty fun game. I think that it is slightly overpriced due to the relatively small amount of gameplay it contains, but It was definitely worth how much I payed for it thanks to my coupon (50% off). So I recommend checking it out if you can get your hands on one!

"To be continued... Check the website for updates"

Wait, what? This was at an entirely random point in the game! This game came out in 2009 and it's not finished?

I found the game to be very boring. Each level is a fetch quest to get orbs. Kill the same enemies again and again, get orbs, done, next level.

No story, no replay value, no point.

To be entirely clear, Caster is pretty terrible. It’s also a ton of fun, in large part because it’s only just barely holding it together and doesn’t really give a damn if anything makes sense as long as it’s entertaining.

Everything about Caster is more than a little insane and nonsensical. It’s always trying new stuff just because it can, and though this means the whole game feels like a crash course in engine experimentation, somehow it works. It really has no business being as fun as it is, but something about running around as an immensely overpowered MegaMan-reject is so stupid I was barely able to keep it together while playing the game.

I have no doubt Caster would be a huge chore if it insisted on imposing any restrictions on you or ever became an actual challenge (though a few moments in the second half begin to weigh the game down), but for the most part it lets you do whatever you want. It doesn’t matter if it unbalances the game or even breaks it in places, you’ve been put into this sandbox to blow stuff up and run really fast and that’s about all I needed.

Caster might be barely competent but I can’t help but admire how little it cares or tries to pretend it’s anything but a bit of super dumb fun. I can’t stress enough how stupid everything here is and how delightful I found it. So, sure, I could tear it apart as an ugly piece of garbage, but apparently I was in the mood for something so-bad-it’s-good and Caster more than fit the bill.

Do the math.

Megaman 64 + Sonic The Hedgehog = Caster

This game is awesome. Run around escaping projectiles, attack, defense, speed.

If you play games on Nintendo 64, Gamecube, or Dreamcast, try this.

Despite the dated graphics, this game can be great fun in short bursts. Playing around with the terrain, running at super-speed up vertical cliffs while machine-gunning energy bolts at mite-like things chasing you, dodging projectiles and then capping it off with a super-high jump that lands you hard enough to deform the ground? That's a sort of rush that doesn't really appear in a lot of titles, let alone one with system requirements as relaxed as this. The weapons are pretty unbalanced and you'll only be using one or two once you get them, but that's not really a problem given that competitive balance is a non-issue here.

I only wish they'd given you more opportunities and incentive to use the terrain deformation powers to your advantage, in ways that would make you feel that same exhiliration. It does lack variety and interesting strategy, which is sad. Community support and quality custom levels and stuff would make this so much more worthwhile, given the core gameplay conceit, but even as it is, it's got a charm to it. When it's bad, it's dull. When it's good, it's that kind of game that's fun for the first few days, then you forget about it for a while, and then you pick it up again and relive the magic that hooked you the first time. It's worth a buy, especially if it goes on sale.

Behind the very muddy and dated graphics, there's a fairly fun, fast paced game that does a lot things that are deemed unplayable everywhere else, but feels so right in this game.

I am not expected this game will be fun.

At first, I try this game with low attitude about it but when I play about 20 minutes I feel this game is simply fun. Graphic in this game is terrible but if you can accept that so I think it will not be aproblem to have fun with this game.

It's like Danmaku game with Third-person view.

My Review :

Rate : 9/10

Game Information :

Genre : Indie, RPG, Third Person Shooter
Engine : Custom Built
Platforms : Windows, Mac
Developer : Elecorn
Release Date : 19 Mar, 2009

This game is cheap and fun. You can attack enemies in six unique and cool ways with two playable characters. Best part of this game is terrain deformation which allows you to change the structure of environment. I recommend buying it when it's on sale.

Pros :

● Trading Cards
● Enjoyable Music
● Useful Tutorials
● Simple Story
● Three difficulty levels
● Good combat environment
● Terrain deformation
● You can run on water! :p

Cons :

● No achivements
● Face texture needs to be fixed
● Very Short
● No Multiplayer
● Good controls but sometimes difficult to aim.

Final Review :

This game is worth playing.
