Horrible game is horrible. Get Geometry Wars instead.

The game has many flaws. Gameplay, replay value and controls are rather bad.
If you are thinking this is like Geometry Wars you will be very disappointed.
In my opinion not worth your money.

Beware this game is broken and unplayable
you can't use any controller to play this game and there is no key binding options or
anything to fix that problem, the game was out for years and won't be updated so
don't keep your hopes up for a fix

A Geometry Wars knockoff with broken controls. Avoid this even during the sales. The game had promise. Unfortunately it's unplayable in its current state. The "partial controller support" is a joke and I have no clue how that manages to remain on the store page or how this game hasn't been pulled from Steam. Maybe if they pulled it then the dev would get around to fixing it.

Really incredible that an arcade style game like this doas not support the MS 360 pad: You can move but not rotate your ship.
With mouse/keyboard controls also unplayable - keys far too sensitive: you will crash all the time.
...and the vector style graphics (apart from the grid) are really minimalistic.
Think Tempest without all the fancy colors...

In beginning of a boom of Indie games back in 2007 and 2008 it saw a number of casual games featuring graphics much like these. I am going to try to be respectful in this review, but this game is very bad and easily the worst I've played in a while.

First of all, Arcardia fails at the basic requirement of being functional software. I was not able to get a working controls either by keyboard or mouse or my gamepad. There is no help menu or even a key binding screen I can tell what keys I need to press. If you want to rebind the gamepad keys you need to edit the configuration file manually. If you want to rebind the keybaord keys then you may be out of luck as I saw no configuration file for the keyboard.

Gameplay wise, this game really wants to be Geometry Wars. It's to the point where it follows Geometry Wars home and Geometry wars should consider getting a restraining order. If this game was commercially successful the developers of Geometry Wars should consider legal action. You might think I'm exaggerating, but I played them side-by-side and the difference is uncanny. The only difference is that Geometry Wars actually works and is a lot more polished.

Acardia mimics Geometry Wars in the following ways; grid background, distortion effects, weapons and weapon progression, controls (best I can tell anyway, seeing as they didn't really work for me). Even much of the enemy AI is a mirror of Geometry Wars. It's even to the point where the same AI had the same rough shape and color as it's counterpart in Geometry Wars.

Just buy Geometry Wars if you don't already own it. It's much more polished and, most importantly, it actually works.

Score: 0/10

Fun and fast "twin-stick" shooter with a killer soundtrack. It's a very simple game, similar to Geometry Wars but with less intense graphics. It's pretty much mainlined hardcore shooting and doesn't try to be anything it's not - the price reflects this. There are several different game modes and you can tweak the settings of the game like color and autofire, but it all really boils down to how long can you survive against the coming onslaught of endless enemies. Trust me, you'll die.

Pros:

Solid Gameplay
Cool Customizations
Awesome Soundtrack
Quirky and Cool Graphics

Cons:

Only Viable for Pickup/Putdown Gaming
No Integrated Leaderboard Support - Must Use Steam Client
Terrible Gamepad Support (Big con for a twin-stick shooter)

If you're looking for a shooter fix and like it hard and fast (just like your music) pick up Arcadia. B

BS Game... This game is a joke and a waste of money... Don't let yourself be fooled by the awesome soundtrack, thats about the only thing good in it. The little ''ship'' doesnt move at all on a keyboard and gameplay on a gamepad is nigh impossible due to the ludicrous speed those little rocks come at you. Truth be told the only reason i bought this game was because of the soundtrack... as soon as i extract it, i'll remove this piece of garbage from my computer.

Summer Gaming Project Review:

This could be a faster and crisper version of Geometry Wars. Instead it is a twin stick shooter with totally broken controls. The developer is apparently working on a patch, but it's been a freaking year.

1/5

해본 사람은 굉장히 재미있다고 해서 질러봤는데... xbox360 패드 인식이 이상하게 된다. 그래서 gamepad 끄고 마우스로 했는데 마우스 겨냥이 안된다. 아마 패드 빼고 하면 될것도 같은데.... 귀찮으니 맘.

I see all these negative reviews complaining about lack of support and replay value, but I just want to say that despite its problems, this game is really fun for the 2$ I paid for it on sale.

The gameplay gets pretty intense, especially late in a round when tons of enemies are spawning, and it's an enjoyable challenge figuring out how to best kite and kill enemies and when to use bombs and such.

When you buy this game, be aware what you are paying for. Arcadia is a casual shooter (As clearly mentioned) that is not meant to entertain you for long periods of time like other games. This game is fun to play on and off when you don't have time for other deeper games, and it fulfills that goal excellently. Don't buy this game if you are looking for a hardcore game to sink many hours into to beat or to become the best at it.

Whether this game is being actively updated or not isn't really relevant. The game mechanics are solid and very entertaining in a casual situation, and I'm happy having given a one time payment of 2$ and receiving the end product I got.

One point that I want to given special mention to is the music in this game. Hearing the music in this game is like half the experience of playing this game. The dev of this game put together an awesome soundtrack for this game, which ends up making it extremely relaxing and enjoyable to play. The music in this game is techno and trance from Newgrnds (Steam censors the full site name for some reason), so if you like that kind of music you'll probably enjoy this game

As the description clearly states, "Arcadia is a fun, casual little shooter." And that's exactly what you get when you buy this game. Hardcore gaming experience for hundreds of hours of evolving gameplay, no. Fun 2d bullet-hell shooter with awesome music that's worth a few bucks, yes.

Hidden gem. That's what I have to say.

You are Mr. Triangle.
You don't fit into this world as nothing else is a triangle (but some things are similarly pointy - I call those guys hypocrites).
Everything else doesn't like you.
You will explode if hit by something else.
Everything else wants to make you explode.
Mr. Triangle must use his latent psionic power to send yellow triangle bullets into everything else and kill them before he dies himself.
Mr. Triangle must also move around so he can avoid everything else that is out to kill him.
When Mr. Triangle dies, he loses part of his Triangle Power. When all the Triangle Power goes away, it's game over for him.

It's a £1 game, really. Extremely simple but pretty damn fun.

SAVE A TRIANGLE BY HELPING HIM TODAY.

This is a poor man’s Geometry Wars. There is no local high score board. The developer has released more than one “update” which has broken the game on older machines. The enemies are cheap and lame. The music is repetitive. I sort of enjoyed this game for a while simply because it’s so quick to play a game. That has passed. Is it possible to use the “recommend” feature to warn people about terrible games? I am going to try. Don’t buy this. “Bullet Candy” is a better game which sells for cheaper.

Arcadia is quite possibly the laziest attempt at an indie game I have ever seen. Let me tell you something about indie games, they must be artistic. Nothing about arcadia is Artistic. If Arcadia is artistic, then I can get a piece of graph paper with a drawn triangle in the middle and call that art. The musical score is a techno beat that repeat endlessly to the point where I just mute the dam game sounds effects and music. I swear I’ve seen middle school children who can design/program more advance games than Arcadia on visual basic. I haven’t even been playing for one hour, and I’m almost through with this game. Not sure if I will even bother getting the rest of the achievements. Oh ya, the leaderboards are broken, doesn’t upload high scores.

A really fun Indie game that should not be past up if your into retro arcade style games. The graphics are really fun looking and really get you into the game. It is a unique game that has classy gameplay to it. The music really gets the rhythm going with the game and when you progress the music feels more intense. The other ships that you have to kill progressively get bigger and tougher. The ships follow you so you have to keep moving to get the right shot on them. This is a really fun casual game that any can pick up and play. Ive really enjoyed playing it and I know you will too so don't hesitate when seeing this one on sale.

It's a good game that's not finished yet.
I don't feel it's worth 5$ yet, but will be once it's finished.
At the moment it looks and feels like a work in progress, but there's definitely nothing wrong wtih that. If I were you I'd definitely pick it up before the sale ends.
