This game is published by KISS ltd.

If you did not know, KISS stands for Keep It Simple Stupid.

Not exaclty an inspiring name for a game publisher.

"OMGWTFBBQ" comes to mind. Where do I begin?

The claymation style is actually nice, if a bit bland at times. Can't imagine how much work and time that requires. Kudos. that's the only good point. Oh I guess the audio is ok too (but I had sound only on the right channel somehow?).

Otherwise... this is bad. Yeah it's old, but even back then.. just bad. I survived 11 minutes of it, completing a shooter section and almost a lunar lander section. Really? Lunar lander?!?! WITH OBSTACLES AND REFUELS? I'll pass.

If it wasn't clear: BAD. BAD BAD BAD. Let's challenge each other a la Desert Bus to see who last the longest type of bad.

I'll snatch the cards and uninstall to be forever forgotten. Maybe I won't be able too. That scares me.

Sorry dev!

Best what this game offers is Steam cards. But even if you want to run it in background, you'll probably lose control of your mouse.
The rest of it is even worse.

VERDICT:
Run it only if you like to suffer.

The game is broken. You can't even leave it to idle because the mouse won't move when you minimized the game

The Good
Clay models and basic animation is nice.
Sound seemed reasonable.
I played with Easy difficulty and found it was the closest match between issues with controls and game play performance.

The Bad
Controls are a little quirkly/jittery for my liking.
Game can't make up it's mind what type it is, as each world type (akin to Super Mario Bros.) has a level of each in order being a 2D scrolling shooter, rocket lander, a 2d platform game before finishing off with another 2D scrolling shooter level with a defeat the boss end scenario.
Application does not stay in it's own little sandbox, taking away mouse performance from the rest of the host Operating System until it is closed.

The Ugly
I gave it a No recommendation as I didn't find the game enjoyable. The game application taking away mouse performance means I have to leave it active for Steam Card acquisition, nor if it was in better shape be able to multitask like I prefer to do with most games (highly recommend Bejewed 3 or Battlepaths, run those in Windowed mode).

TL/DR - Grab it for the cards, only if you can acquire the game cheap or (my recommended value) free.

The good: The unqiue *clay* ghraphics.
The bad: this game is completly unstable.
Even worse than Platypus 2. Get Platypus instead.

Had to check if my headset was broken because the audio was only playing in one ear. Found out it was the game, not my headset. Cannot ALT-TAB out of the game because it locks your mouse into a small region on your desktop, annoying much? Loaded the game later on only to get an Error! Failed to load sky2-0.png. Really? I can't play the game now because of an image file error? Idled the error screen for cards, because that way I could play or do something else and have full use of my mouse. Uninstalled for life.

The sound is only coming out of ONE speaker? I can't minimize the game to do something else on my computer without losing control of the mouse? It would be different if the game were decent in any way. It's not. It seems like someone made this as some sort of learning experiment. Pass on this.

I can't even idle properly because the mouse locks up in one place on the screen when the game is minimized.

First of all, just like Platypus 2, all sound in Nux comes out of only the right speaker/headphone. I ended up turning my headphones up to max volume and placing them in front of the keyboard.

Now why did I play this for the hour it took to beat? I dunno. There are three games in here - a vertical sh'mup, a sidescrolling platformer, and a "lander". None of the three are very good.

Lander feels best, and looks the best. It's no wonder that most of the screenshot on the store page are of Lander levels. It is also absurdly difficult and the main reason I had to switch to Easy difficulty, and start the game "anew" from each unlocked planet to ensure I had enough lives. Don't expect to beat the game in an hour if you play on Normal - you'll have lots and lots of retries taking up your time.

And after beating the final boss you are treated to "The End" and dumped to the main menu. Then again, why have any cutscene when there's no story?

I wanted to drop cards and during the dropping time to give this game a chance. But the game didn't want me to do it. After seeing a company logo it welcomed me with a broken menu flashing alternately with leaderboards. Since it was ablolutely unplayable I gave up and alt-tabbed it. Irrationaly, even minimized, the game couldn't just let the cards drop peacefully and broke my mouse movements making doing anything almost impossible.

As for the ridiculous Steam price... Wait. I received the game for free. Hopefully. As for me this game is not worth a cent since it's broken and breaks everything around.
