This game is fun and entertaining! I have to agree that the graphic look like they should be on the playstation 1,but Hye my Username is KeyCaster so I think that this game was meant for me.Literally.So I got it played it....Its great buy some cons but this game gets a 7.5/10.Good.But I recommend buying it when it is on sale.49 cents like wow.talk about cheap.But it would be worth if you payed full price as well.

Imagine you're megaman. Now imagine you're running through low quality, boring backgrounds with boring monsters to fight and not much else. Well, that's Caster for you. Given, I got it very cheap, I still think it was a waste of my 30 minutes and the few cents I payed for it.

The game itself has some pros and cons...

Pros
Funny gameplay
Really entertaining
With all upgraded its really fun to play
Relaxing
You can change the world with Your skills

Cos
Sometimes it gets repeative...
And boring after 2 hours.

I've seen people with 40 hours on, and yeah, it's ok.
Some people like this type of games. I think I did only 1 Episode and I was almost fully upgraded.

Caster is a 2009 game that would have been a big hit on the Nintendo 64. I'm talking about the good old Rareware quality before Microsoft turned it into just plain Rare. In spirit the developer should earn a Miyamoto award! I think the developer was a senior programmer at Hidden Path Entertainment, they are known for games like CS:GO and Defense Grid 2.

Instead of writing a long review (which I may semi-do anyways ;P) I'd like to show some gameplay footage. From this hopefully you can deduce things like how quickly you can pass Caster and level of fun.

The game directory contents is quite interesting. It uses SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) and some other familiar DLL files. The assets are open to look at. For example the levels consist of two image maps. One for depth and one colour coded that represents the actual design. Essentially you could just create a level in Photoshop or Paint.

The biggest problem with Caster is that it freezes my PC randomly. It may have something to do with the graphics since the game works fine in safe mode. The only thing you can do is press the reset button on your PC when it happens since Ctrl + Alt + Del won't even work.

Ehh, I wonder why there's so many positive reviews.
This game is just another example of hello-buy-me-sell-cards.

The idea of gameplay is hello i'm mage on drugs and i hate ants and stuff. The release date that steam shows is a year of 2009. Well maybe in a year of .. erh.. 200x where's x stands for something under 4 or so.. that could be a good game. But no, it's no fun, it looks old and even gameplay, sorry, is bad.

2 free flash games of 10.

Well the game looks like something out of 2002, except with terrible mouse acceleration and even worse character design. And the dialogue characters look like anime drawn by a 9 year old. Game should probably be cheaper. Can't recommend it. 3/10.

Caster makes me nostalgic for older arcades with the blocky graphics. It is also fun but short and kinda easy though. The devs have been working on extra content and there are custom maps which obviously you can try. Pretty good for an iOS port but nothing amazing.

While Caster can be fun some of the time, there's really no other value there. If all you want to do is spam overpowered weapons while sprinting around at mach speed, this is probably the game for you. But if you like your games with actual value in them, actual story, playability, difficulty, challenge or what have you, then look elsewhere, because Caster lacks all of those and then some.

The graphics are very outdated and the textures/models can be glitchy as they clip a good amount, but even if they don't they're still not pleasant to look at. The character isn't even aesthetically pleasing and that's the one thing you have to stare at the entire game. Not to mention his/her face is just down-right creepy at some angles. The balancing is dreadful, as you get a game-breaking weapon at about level two, and the difficulty spikes up and down more than a heart monitor. Also, once you max out your health and sprint ability (which can be done very early game, mind you), you can just sprint back and forth to avoid every projectile, while spamming you're broken weapon that shoots as fast as you can click (and if you're like me, that means it can be spammed at speeds that will melt bosses in no time).

So there's no balancing and the graphics are bad, what else? Well, the story is worse than both of those cons combined. The easiest way to describe the story is by saying that there just isn't one. You're a new recruit and you're sent on missions to combat what seems to be an evil creature-empire that's expanding and trying to take over the world(?). You go place to place and just clear each level, there's no more objectives than that. Also, there's only like two themes of levels, and they're repeated over and over.

Later game you run into a few levels that are almost impossible given the game's engine, where you have to keep a small ship out of the water even though it goes way faster than you can terraform the ground in front of it, and a boss battle that just drags on so long no matter how much damage you deal per second, and you just have to spam and dodge for like five minutes straight. The game is also very short.

And last but not least, the developer decided to incorporate a destructible environment... everywhere. Weapons that deal a little bit of area damage will also chip away at the ground on every level, so if you max out your weapon and you're spamming like hell (as is the custom) the ground will basically meltdown out from under where you're aiming. It breaks the map and it breaks the game, even though it was already broken from all the other previously mentioned problems.

When it's all said and done, I would not recommend the Caster to- well, anybody. The only reason it's not getting a 1/10 is because sprinting back and forth at mach speed while spamming your blaster like you have some sort of turrets is actually quite enjoyable in a weird way. So because I ran into a little bit of fun there, I give Caster a generous 3/10. That being said, do not buy this no matter what, not only because you'll waste money, but mostly because you'll just waste your time. I got it on sale for pocket change and I feel like I still got ripped off.

8/10 - Sonic with a gun

This game is really fun. I was suprised to be honest. The movement theme is similar to sonic, but you also have a gun to kill enemies. Different upgrades, boosts, enemies and bosses makes this game pretty addictive quick. Easy to pick up controls and the game is pretty rewarding so far.

Worth the full retail price of $3!

Freezes often on Windows 10, does not optimize aspect ratio...ever, tutorial is utter ♥♥♥♥ and even with a steam controller I can't optomize that ♥♥♥♥. Every time Mega Man shoots he or she magickally makes trees grow like I'm Gaia herself. If I had been on drugs when I had played Caster this review would have probably went different.
