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.

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.

The controls are awful. The gameplay is loose and deeply unsatisfying. Avoid.

While not a terrible game, I wouldn't recommend it because frankly the current price of $10 is much too high and also as it is a classic arcade-style shooter, if that is what you feel like playing then I might suggest you go and play one of those instead that you could get for much less and that would not have some of the same issues.

What I liked:
-Classic arcade-style shooting
-Ability to upgrade ship in between battles
-Decent number of affordable upgrades for ship
-Shields can make your ship tolerate more punishment than some other similar shooters

What I did not like:
-No tutorial or explanation of item pickups
-No saving even between missions (play all at once or lose your score)
-Default controls unintuitive; controls could be remapped but some are hardcoded and these are not identified anywhere
-For example, Space = swap secondary weapon. You can map Space to something else, but it will then do both (annoying)
-Sounds were not well balanced, so voices were always too quiet in contrast with background music even after adjustments
-Level backgrounds did not feel very dynamic, more like a scrolling wallpaper than your ship actually flying through a zone.
