It's a bullet hell and you really have to try hard to mess one up. While there are much better bullet hells on Steam than this, if you could pick it up for VERY cheap, then I would recommend this game. It's not good, but it's not terribly bad.

Would recommend at an extremely HIGH discount. Like 97-99% off.

This game has a lower quality than some bullet hell flash games. Just play those if you enjoy bullet hells.

Upon opening, the game wouldn't load past the opening screen, a low resolution picture: "RAZER2: HIDDEN SKIES".
After that, I couldn't alt tab out to close the game. I hooked up a second monitor, opened task manager, and I couldn't force the process to close. Taskkiller couldn't end this game. So far it is basically a cockroach. I had to restart my pc just so I could end the thing and uninstall the ♥♥♥♥ out of it.

I tried, I really tried to finish it but even on easy difficulty its hard to survive for long. I don't know what I was expecting from this game, I guess I felt like finishing a game since this one is only 1-2 hours long but I couldn't get pass level 6.

The weapons, shields and slots are confusing af, and the 3 weapons you can chose to upgrade are worthless.

The game is overpriced, with 10$ you can buy a much more entertaining game than this. I guess you could buy it for 2 or 3 bucks if you like these kind of games and you're looking for a challenge, otherwise it isn't worth even the 2$.

The graphics and the pattern the enemies attack you make this game very unpleasent. It's not fun, and sometimes I feel it's not challenging either, as you can't possibly dodge every incoming bullet.

Do I recommend this for the full price? Totally no. Do I recommend this for 2$? Still no. The game is playable but it's not fun. Pick it up in a bundle or something if you really want to try your luck on this.

Somehow this game looks good but plays bad and that's bad as in bad, not good.The colisions in the game seem off and even though you have moving and enemies, they somehow feel static in the game. The game seems to be a little off here then a little off there. Problem is it's all adding up and the whole game feels off. Something in the game just isn't getting across to me the gamer and even the health of my ship in this over the top shooter seems abstract. Half the time I'm just trying to power my ship but on the same note half the time I feel like what's going on here? It feels like someone said this makes a great shooter then turned around and used the world's most generic cookie cutter. Don't let the pretty screen shots fool you because they are just that... pretty. Underneath it all it's pretty... pretty broken up. Difinitely would recommend this game as an example of how not to make a shooter, sweet graphics and all.

A good 90s style bullet hell vertical scrolling shoot 'em up.

There are certain limitations to this genre: I don't think it's possible to make a AAA bullet hell game. ( It doesn't have the content of a AAA game so don't pay AAA prices for it.) Indeed some of the best shooters have very primative graphics. But assuming you are aware of that, and you like the genre, you will enjoy this. To the basic formula it only adds 3D graphics and upgrade shop. It also has good orchestral music. Everything is quite generic but since this style of game has been done a thousand times before I guess that is inevitable. Only major thing missing is a 2 player mode.

Background: Purchased as part of a Bundle Stars Bundle.

Impressions:
Wow.. it's a quick download and a quick deletion. I played up to the first boss and then quit out.

Basically it's a bullet-hell game like '1942' with futuristic 3D ships and a horribly restricted field of view.

It's something you've seen a million times before and does nothing to improve on the formula. The shooting just requires you hold down 2 fire buttons and let them auto fire as you try to dodge the incoming while nabbing the upgrades as they drop down.

The Good:
*Looks pretty decent.
*Controls work well.
*Sound is ok.

The Bad:
*Lack of impact and satisfying enemy destruction.
*Field of view is too close in a tight downward angle.
*Boring enemy attack patterns.
*Cheap enemy tactics, attack from behind, really suck.
*Weapon pickups have no discernible impact on your killing power.
*Just holding down the 2 fire buttons and moving is not fun.

Recommended for:
Fans looking for an updated '1942' type game.. but even then it's a hard sell.

Conclusion.
2/10. Really weak all round and lacking anything original to keep you interested.

Wow this is bad. Almost impressivly so. Sure, It was probably easy to make things like the art bland and the music painfully generic, but in other areas it seems like there was some real effort to make this properly terrible.

A camera angle which makes it difficult to place where your ship is relative to bullets, that's some effort right there. Ship movement which seems oddly disconnected from controller input, hit boxes that float some distance away from the actual target, sound effects that scrape against your will to live. This crap doesn't make itself y'know.

This game is mediocre at best. The menu selection is just awful, especially for the upgrades, it's not clear what each upgrade of your guns, rockets, power, shields can do, no idea what each gun is, everything is trial and error. Even so, it starts with such a fury and speed, the bosses are almost unbeatable, and it feels like all of the time someone's attacking you from behind or just trying collide with you. This game feels like nightmare even if you selected easy.

My advice: This genre is best portrayed in the old "Raptor: Call of the Shadows" game. This game should have been influenced more from that.

As there is nowadays a big influx of shooters games on steam there is starting to be somewhat of a crowd at the bottom of the pile.

This game is down there in the pile. It may perhaps be more on top of that pile as there are worse shooters but that doesnt help much. Why so? As other reviews have accurately described this game suffers from hard to tell hit collision as enemies alter altitude and often approach you from behind. I'd also add that pacing is a problem. Evidence? Find a Let's play video about the first level -> notice the attack patterns and hit boxes? Long long chains of repeating patterns come at you. And then without much ado the boss crawls forth to battle you.

I must also point out it's by far biggest sin: Pricing. there are other shooter games that i won't be naming that score points as they are simply so incredibly cheap you can get them for some coins and they give you that 30-60min of mediocre fun. This one is overpriced and gets annoying quickly and thus it's price/quality is bonkers.

I like to see past problems of games and find redeeming qualities in them that would make them different and perhaps place them in a niche. Alas i can't find any redeeming qualities in this game considering the competition on steam AND pricing.

Quick review coming from a shmup lover.

The Good :
- the game does't look too bad. By today's standards, it doesn't look too good either, but I wouldn't mind if it played ok.
- Music sounds good, but...

The Bad :
- Controls are rigid. Don't even try to play with an XBOX360 controller...
- Patterns are repetitive.
- I have a big feeling problem with this game. Can't feel the power of the weapons. Can't feel when I'm hit. This is probably because the sound in the game is not very well balanced.
- ... the sounds FX are weak. Can't hear any explosion. Shot sounds are flat and weak.
- Music sounds totally inappropriate. It's good, but it feels like it's the music from another game...

Definitely not worse the full price.
