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?

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.
