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 vibe that reminds me of many great Playstation 2 and Gamecube era video-games.

Despite the poor graphics, the game is kept interesting by the multitude of unique levels and environments and as for the actual gameplay, it is incredibly fun. The controls are very smooth, however I wouldn't recommend using a gamepad because aiming and adjusting the camera angles was hardly controllable. The electronic soundtrack was also very cool, fitting the game perfectly!

But I especially love 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.

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.

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.

I bought it for $0.14. If I'd know it would have been this good I would have happily paid $5. This game is a fantastic indie gem. It really gives me hope that not ALL the indie games on Steam are awful trash.

PROS:
+ Terrain deformation is fun and quick but doesn't feel gimmicky or normally required. It frees you up to play with things as you like.
+ Running and jumping is smooth and handles well.
+ The few enemies the game has are varied and interesting and also deform the terrain.
+ Finding the hidden collectables isn't compulsory (it would be very annoying if it was) but makes for a fun extra goal to lengthen the game a little.
+ The game doesn't stretch itself longer than it should be. There's not enough content here for 10 hours of gameplay so they didn't make that much.

CONS:
- The game is short, very short. There's probably more that could be done by adding a few more enemies and a few more levels.
- Little problems with all the weapons. Not game ruining, just minor gripes:
> The blaster's crosshairs don't line up perfectly with its ostensibly straight shots. This only becomes apparent at extreme range.
> The eruptor is very hard to aim as it doesn't have a light effect or cast a shadow and just appears as a distortion on the screen. It's very hard to tell where one is in 3D space (how close/far). This also makes enemies that shoot it odd to fight.
> The homing shot has a very hard time hitting enemies. It flies around in circles and ends up slamming into terrain about 75% of the time.
> The shield attack is a neat idea but doesn't have an applicable purpose.
- Very few enemies in the game, both in type and actual number. The game would benefit from a little more crowded levels. Some very large levels only have like 6 enemies in them.

Final Verdict: Buy this game.

If you see it on sale BUY THIS GAME.

A cross between Sonic and Megaman. I imagine this is how they should handle the next Sonic game

Bought it cheap, was expecting something absolutely, positively horrible, but what I got instead was actually a rather fun game.
Graphics are terrible, I will say that much, but the gameplay is highly fun and the music is alright.

I'd say give it a go if you have 14 cents and definitely pick this up on a sale.

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.

It's a great game. Graphics may not be the best, but the special effects are awesome and the gameplay is great. When you max out your jump and basically fly everywhere...

Great game. Worth waaay more than 3$.

You can run on water!

Edit :

My Review :

Rate : 9/10

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

Cons :

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

QUALITY

"I AM A GOD!"

POSITIVES:
-Soundtrack, Length, Variety
The gameplay is in hyper drive, but it doesn't feel nauseating or unmanageable.
The initial controls are awkward, but the reset is easy.

NEGATIVE:
-the visuals.
It hurts to be taunted with all the high quality concept art
in comparison to the highly polished but outdated 3d graphics.
This is one of the best examples of a game that was held back by
the creator's & the hardware's limitations.

But the game is still great regardless. Every little details adds to the epic all powerful thrill.

Suggestions:
-Update graphics, more character options, and release the soundtrack.
oh and btw, this is what a Sonic game should feel like!

Caster is an average third person shooter that does not contain any notable qualities, aside from the ability to destroy terrain and perform ridiculous map-crossing leaps.

Your objective in each level is to either kill every enemy or do a generic fetch quest (there are a few other missions with different objectives but they're uninteresting, for example; shoot a tree). Every level is incredibly short, and even on my first time, each one averaged no longer than a minute. Speaking of game length, the entire thing isn't longer than an hour. The game abruptly ends with a "To Be Continued...", and despite being released in 2009, there has been no continuation, and it seems the website does not hint at anything of the sort either.

Enemies are all very generic, and each one of their attacks can be easily avoided by just sprinting around or jumping. Even if they do manage to hit you, they deal hardly any damage, and they are easily dispatched; even more so with the weapon upgrades.

The story is uninspired, and unless you've never heard or seen the "It's humans against aliens, you're our only hope!" plot, then I doubt you'll be interested. As I stated earlier, the game ends at a very unexpected random point with sequel bait.

A map editor is available, but I did not use it or download custom maps, so I cannot comment on that.

I did not find Caster to be particularly interesting in any way. Terrain destruction and super speed can be fun and worth it if you paid 0.14 cents, but beyond that, there's not much else that the game offers.

It feel like you're running around searching for dragon balls. The double jumps and speed running give it a fun kick. The cards basically pay for the game. its a win win.
