You and up to three friends compete in the arena with 5 different modes, adjusted to suit your fine taste. Lots of weapons or just a few? Fully armoured or one hit kills? Play the way you want.

Retro arcade neon fun. It's simple yet challenging. I believe this came in a bundle, and it overall it put me back about 50 cents.

Legit the worst game I've ever played. But then 2 days later I played it and it was a new game with new levels and nudity in the loading screen. (Flailing ♥♥♥♥♥ and a graphic depiction of slug on caterpillar penetration)\
0/10 for releasing a game that traverses parallel dimensions and changes completely. Highly reccomended by most Jews.

Well, this game is great... I have played the single player yet. ... if you ask me a comparison, I would compare it to the feeling I have while playing Binding of Isaac. You know you will die, but you will try your best to move those extra few inches over last time.

I have only played this very few minutes, however I wanted to post this because in the first 5 minutes of playing this game I have found out this is going to be a GEM. The game play is extremely simple. You can even play 4 player split screen which makes it a must have for us nerds with the large screen experience in mind. 10/10 for the indie game that could!

A fun little shooter that harkens back to the well-balanced simplicity that made so many classic arcade games fun.

The selection of weapon effects are greatly varied and require you to use some strategy. I've lost a few hours at a time playing this one (on multiple accounts).

If you've ever spent hours in the arcade playing space invaders or any shooter arcade co-op game this is the game for you. Minimalistic funky graphics with great touches and nods to things like space invader inspired floating jellyfish background ambience, weapons that have sound effects at times that seem like a nod to Defender. (the Nova weapon). Wacky characters. Even the character selection screen reminds me of the Ninja Turtles arcade character select screen (in a way). What seems like a simple shoot-em up quickly turns into "one more game". Great soundtrack by Gloom also. All around great package. Totally reccomend as a party game if you have multiple controllers :D
