Normally I would hold off on writing a review until I’ve seen all that a game could offer, but the problem with this game is in its content, or the lack thereof. For the entire duration of the game, you play as a small spaceship fending off hoards of hostile crafts. You can get minor power-ups from crates, but they don’t replenish so you have to make do with what you have. If for any reason you were touched by anything, you die and the game restarts.

A typical session would last around a few minutes, but there is no reward in beating an old score and nothing carries over to a new game. There are zero incentives that would prompt you to carry on.

On the other hand, the design and art direction are fine on both accounts, there was a retro futuristic feel to the whole thing, which I appreciated immensely. That alone however, does not warrant a recommendation from me. At the least, the developers should add achievements and online leader boards to sway my opinion.

It's a top down shooter.
there is literally nothing else to say about this game.
you shoot spaceships and hide behind cover for points.

This is a fun little game, only 8 MB. The the graphic is good, the music cool, and the game is fun, for a short periode of time, this is the game's problem, you can play it for 10 minutes and do everything it is to do. The devs should add customization and multiplayer. The reason i gave this thumbs up was beacause the game has such a good potential, here is alist for what they need to add in my opinoin:

- Multiplayer (1v1 and Coop)
- Customization (Changing the color of your ship for example)
- Add missions and ahcivments.

If you're not sure if you're going to like this game, wait till it is on sale.

If you're looking for fast paced arcade style fun, you've found it. The game starts off fairly quickly, and just gets faster and faster as you go. Fun powerups. Fun game. It's really pretty simple. I paid 49 cents for the game, which is horribly underpriced in my opinion. If you think you might enjoy it, why not get it? Small file size, miniscule price tag, and some great fun.

I would honestly love to talk to a developer of the game. It is fast paced and honestly really fun! The game is very simple and brings retro back to reality. The soundtrack is even amazing!

Even though there are negative reviews saying its bad it really just depends what you like. It has alot of dying involve but thats what makes it great. If you don't die in a game there is no challenge in it.

I really enjoy this game for its simplicity and the price is even amazing!

9/10 for it being sexy

TeraBlaster feels like a very simple made Fast Paced Retro Shooter game without much to offer.

When you start the game you have 1 life and have to survive through a horde of enemies which quickly becomes overwhelming to the point of almost being impossible to reach over 2 minutes alive time, by that time you will have killed about 300-400 enemies.

While playing there will drop boosters which will power you up abit, making you faster, stronger and a few survival gadgets that can help you stay alive longer, boosts typically drop when you kill enemies or big grey/red boxes.

When you die, then thats it and you can start over again, there is no unlocks or other kind of extra content in the game and there is one Statistic Menu where you can see your one highest Score in Minute and kills, but only the one highest, meaning no there is no list.

-TLDR-

+Music picks fits good to the game.
+Good Action Retro, Very Fast Paced, with big hordes of enemies.
+Ingame Boosters that increase your ships speed and power and add survival gadgets.

+/-A Statistic Highscore is nice, but would be better with a more detailed Highscore List.
+/-Very quick gameplay, meaning don't expect more than a 3 minute round which you can restart after death.

-Almost no Combat View, makes it too hard to stay alive when enemies start moving fast.
-Annoying Graphic Animations that confuses gameplay abit.
-No extra content or unlocks of anykind which makes the game abit doll in length.

Overall during Early Access, i will give the game a 2,5/10.

P.S. I Won TeraBlaster in a Giveaway from Orlygift!

This game just has you shooting things for as long as you can survive. After around a minute it gets to be pretty tough, especially with the fast ships trying to kamikaze you. By that time you've seen everything the game has to offer anyway and it's hard to keep motivated to continue. Having some sort of leaderboards may help by making it more competitive, but I don't see myself coming back to this one.

Good music and simple game.
Very very very casual game.
The game is just 5mb.
The game itself is a survival mode.
Your only controls are your everlasting gunnery and ship navigation where your ship roams around inside a square field. >.>
You can pick up self activating bombs and speed boosts as you destroy obstacles.


Goodluck surviving beyond the 2minute mark!

THIS GAME NEEDS LEADERBOARD MOST OF ALL

Start > Die, Start > Die, Start > Die... Nothing else.

It's a roguelike top down shooter, you get some power ups during gameplay, and the enemy waves increase in numbers and has a few different enemy types. When you die, it's over, you'll have to start over again. It became boring after a few minutes. The graphic style is pretty simple but decent, as well as the sound effects. I feel the field of vision is too limited, it should be wider. Also, other than only a survival mode, maybe a mode where you can get optional upgrades and restart with upgrades.

Not bad for a quick arcade game, but not that good either. When you die, you're just dumped back to the main menu, and there is virtually nothing that will compel you to keep playing after the first couple of deaths. Overall I'm giving it a negative, just for the fact that I have no desire to play it again, and that was just after ~10 minutes of play.

This game is very, very, VERY casual.
A "game" lasted between 60 and 120 seconds (your experience may differ ... slightly).

You play as a shooting disc, rampaging in a confined area, trying to get rid of as many red disks as possible, before you are overwhelmed.

After ~50 seconds the enemies will rush you and you better have as many power-ups as possible to last a few more seconds.

The music is okay, if you like midi music.

The game menu is very simple: You can turn on/off music and sound effects, view your highscore and toggle fullscreen.

There are no leader boards and the map is always the same - so it can get boring fast.

TLDR: Do not get fooled by a price. You could easily find more enjoyable games and with more content via the Internet in a form of flash games.

Details:
0 - 2 minutes of playtime - Wow, this may be good!
2 - 5 minutes of playtime - Dying and destroying, dying and destroying...
6 minutes of playtime - Oh, this is getting boring. Shooting over and over again...
7 minutes of playtime - No, I can not stand playing this any longer

+ Graphics looks are unique and somehow nice.
+ Concept seems to be good, it did not work here though.

- No tutorial or any tips or explanation of what the game is about - simple "click here to play" and nothing else.
- No setting options other than a single thing: "Press "F" to toggle Full screen". This actually gave me a lot of laugh - I think it was supposed to be a joke or something.
- However graphics look nice, as for a person with bad eyesight, it was really difficult to see anything. All these shooting, crashing boxes, tanks and other things were floating around making everything a big mess. Everything was hard to be seen.
- Only one basic vehicle/tank available to play, NO starting options or customization.
- Gameplay is extremely boring already after few minutes of playing - it is just holding left mouse button and using keys to move from time to time to pick up some upgrade. I was aware of bombs which could be used with RMB but I have used them twice only - nothing special.

Summing up - eventhough TeraBlaster is cheap (especially while on sale), it is completely not worth buying. Go find some free flash game on the Internet and have much more fun!
