BlastZone 2 Maintenance update (v1.22.3.6)

For those who are curious about the new BlastZone 2 update (v1.22.3.6), it is a smaller maintenance release to address a few issues found recently. Here is the official change list:

  • Fixed a ubyte wrapping issue when calculating player final death explosion particles that would occasionally have unpredictable behavior
  • Fixed an additional single frame ubyte wrapping issue for final player death explosion particles that would cause them to occasionally flicker
  • Migrated to the latest version of the Steamworks SDK (v1.37)
Enjoy!

Classical retro shooter with nice graphics and cool gameplay.
The game can be a bit hard, which is good for people that actually like a challenge.
Sweet game!

Cheap arcade space shooter.
Dont expect a one of the best games but the game cna be fun in bursts.
Complete the game with all ships and you basicly 100% it but after 1 playthrough i was done
a single playthrough takes like 25-30 minutes.

I don't regret the purchase but i might expected slightly more.
there is a co-op mode but i didnt have a friend that has the game as well.

Whatever happened to those days of old when enemies took one shot to die, you could learn their attack patterns and had to naviagte through structures on each level? *sigh* Well, this game is the mirror opposite. Enemies are erratic to the point of annoying and disappear off the screen before you hardly know they are there. The amount of hits they take to actually go down is a bit tedious and there was a cheap "fly right into you" boss ship at the end of level 2! I also seemed to pick up bonuses or "upgrades" that seemed to have little or no effect! Right, I'm off for a game of R-Type!

Very Fun Classic style Horizontal Shump, and somewhat hard which is good.
Supports Gamepads, has an extensive gfx config app.
Good music tracks too.
Love the retro early style DX3-5 3D GFX look, intentional or not.

A good shmup with multiple modes and plenty of replay-ability.

The different modes of the game offer a good variety.

Story Mode plays as you would expect with some fun sequences and boss fights.
The classic mode gives a challenge which is very different in mechanics from most available shmups that i've played.

The best part for me personally is the survival -> blitz mode -> Turbo Difficulty!
Endless waves of intense action! Not sure why more shmups dont do this!

The graphics are a bit dated but have that classic pc/arcade charm.

I would like to see some more variety in the different ships beyond stats.

A decent side scrolling shmup. 5 different game modes to play with 4 difficulties for each mode. You need to play through lower difficulties to unlock the higher ones. Higher difficulties are basically a crap load more enemies moving faster. I had fun with it for a bit. Could be a good time waster.

This game controls very well and hit boxes make sense, but never buy this game at full price (or do its only $5), it's a rather lame game. There's only a few different types of enemies, only 3 different kinds of weapons, about 6 levels and the different types of ships hardly add any extra gameplay. The thing I disliked most about the game is that it is quite hard to see enemies against the terrain especially on a certain map, where it is almost mars like the smaller red bullets are also rather dificult to see.

ONLY £3.99!!!! What a steal

A game with a retro style that executes it perfectly in today’s generation!

*-Lovely art style
*-Wide options and resolutions
*-Supports 360 and Xbox One controller
*-OpenGL
*-Great performance
*-Simple to play
*-CO-OP!!!!

I was going to ask for a review copy, but stopped myself and supported the developers. I paid the £3.99, the game is mainly CPU usage and uses a minimal amount on the GPU. So this will be an easy game to run on nearly all setups.
