This game might not be fore everyone. Hence some of the negative reviews. But if your into twitch shooters, STG's/SHMUPs, or games seemed to be inspired by Jeff Minter, this game is for you.

First of all, really in the early stages of the game, it was not as exciting as it seemed, after the recent update has improved everything, including the gameplay that was even easier than before.

Only recommend to people who like ship and bullet hell games. If you are not one of these people, you will find this a horrible game and so do not recommend it...

Honestly Not worth it, & mostly due to the nature of the music & audio being very painful & .... honestly bad for anything but setups that can filter out bad base, terrible audio the levels of bootlegged media bad (not filled with people talking, but with.. ... poor sound quality.

For a better version, do not buy until patched/upgraded... even with a high discount price. Money better spent on the better version.

utterly .... unforgivable that one would have to use audio correction to make it not painful to listen to.

Outside that the shooting is nice, fairly easy to setup, & isn't to bad just it's done far better in other games and their audio is great. (geometry wars:Retro evolved) which is just as cheap on steam & a much better title.

(will update review if this game ever becomes worth playing, as of now I'll just use the Gamers gate version which is far better in most ways, despite it's own problem)

Bullet Candy is a decent time killer but lacks the polish to make it a truly addicting game. Honestly there is nothing really unique about this game. Everything it does, beat hazard or geometry wars probably does better. The only “new/outstanding” feature that bullet candy offers is the ability to collect pills floating around the maps to auto kills every enemy ship on the map instantly. This is of course no easy task as the game gets more chaotic towards the end game. Like Beat Hazard you have to dodge ships and bullets while destroying your adversaries. This game is of course not a cake walk, like beat hazard and many other top down shooters, dodging a bullet even by just a millimeter can save your life. Overall an ok time killer, but if you already had beat hazard and are short on money, don’t waste your time with this game.

Damn, I am not good at shumps, and this one beat me up. It feels good, controls good, and looks nice. However too many purples and pinks for me: I've played and beaten many other Shumps, but this one had me down at round 25 - I got there in 10 mins and spent another 10 mins trying to continue it again again, and decided I didn't feel like getting my ♥♥♥ handed to me all day. It would be TONS easy if they just gave it controls like SMASH TV.... then I would own at this game, but unfortunately if gives you the mouse cursor from your position, which is actually awful in use if you've played old Shumps and games like SMASH TV or TOTAL CARNAGE. Anyways, worth it on a sale if you like dodging bullets all day.
