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.
*Looks pretty decent.
*Controls work well.
*Sound is ok.
*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.
Fans looking for an updated '1942' type game.. but even then it's a hard sell.
2/10. Really weak all round and lacking anything original to keep you interested.
