Another nice shooter with a very low price (frankly, I'm ready to pat a little bit more for such a game, although not MUCH more). It has some elements of bullet-hell, which I dislike, but mostly it's OK (only the final boss is really hard). A selection of weapons is limited, but welcome, and this game has shield, not just one-hit-and-you-re-dead policy, which is a good reason to like it. Still not a replacement for Raptor, of course, not even close :)

I don't want to say the game is bad, but it definitely earns a $2 price tag. The game functions pretty well, the weapons system is kinda fun, and it's so satisfying to rack up a massive multiplier and watch everything in front of you explode in glorious red-and-yellow flowers. And the bad modeling work is honestly slightly entertaining.

Ugliest projectile design choices I've seen. The overall game spells out dull.

Note: I idled for cards for ~13 hours (rip) so my actual playtime as of posting this review is almost 9 hours.

Pros :
- Great soundtrack.
- Different modes with a good amount of levels.
- Can be played for many hours so it's not one of those short 99 cent games.
- Has plenty of achievements.
- Has trading cards.
- It's really cheap.
- Full controller support (not that I have a working one) and leaderboards too.

Cons :
- There's an issue(?) with some of the achievements. Read this thread for more info - link.

Neutral :
- The game has 4 difficulties : easy, normal, hard, insane. Easy is ez pz. On the other hand normal was quite hard for me. It even says in the info "The intended way to play which is rather difficult". So I can't imagine what will it be like on the other 2 difficulties. For me this is a drawback but if you're a masochist hardcore player that likes challenges it's probably a benefit.

Conclusion :
I bought Star Saviors for 20-ish cents, I think, which is a steal. Even at full price it's worth buying it. Having a good deal more pros than cons makes this a must-buy if you're into shoot 'em up games. Hell, at the price I paid you can just idle for cards and get "Star Saviors" for free by selling them on the community market.

I only paid .50 cents for this thing. I was not expecting much. I'd pay 10x as much after playing it once. The guys who wrote this ought to give themselves a break and increase the price. Its worth a play through if you like the genre.

Does everything right (besides the horrid 3D face models). With a captivating story, highly customizable ships, and unique mechanics, you'll be easily hooked.

I like playing it, but it's pretty repetitive and the Human faces look fugly.
The music is decent, I really like some of the tracks but some are also pretty repetitive and get boring after a few plays. One of the tracks sounds like the beginning of darude sandstorm.
The bosses don't add much to the gameplay and some of them feel just like one big normal enemy.


It was fun for me for one playthrough but there are much better Shoot 'em ups out there.

I only reccomend it because for its price It's a really decent game.
