I can't recommend NW, it's a sub-par SHMUP, based around a victorian-styled navy. Don't expect a story, characters, graphics options of any kind other than resolution and AA, also have to disable any second monitors to get it to display. Uninteresting style, could've gone further with it, plus graphical issues like screen lag and flickering textures even when on a non-cluttered screen. There are better games of this type out there.

I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this one, but honestly, I think the reviews are old, and really do not do this game justice.

The controller interface is great. If you don't care for the keyboard controls, I strongly recommend that you use the controller. As far as the glitches and slow menus reported: How about buying a sdecent graphics card? lol

All in all, this a great game. Simple arcade style feel with a steampunk aesthetic. The voice actors do surprisingly well, and the progression is relaxed and enjoyable. This felt like a nautical sister game to Sine Mora.

THe price is great too. Buy it yourself, test it out, and enjoy. To hell with the whiny old reviews.

Pre-Release Review
I picked the game up for a song, and for quite a while it seemed rather enjoyable. Simple, pretty easy, a relatively short but fun experience.

Perhaps I was just lucky. Perhaps there's other ridiculous bugs and glitches throughout the game that through sheer dumb luck I avoided.

Then I got to the final boss. The big climax for the game. And I got stuck. I couldn't figure out why. At a certain point it became invincible and I could do nothing except reset. And then it happened again. Frustrated, I tried to figure out what was going on.

At a certain point in the boss fight, there's four separate towers you have to destroy. The boss fight is designed in such a way that you're meant to only be able to destroy one at a time. But you can destroy more than one. I found it very easy to do so. Apparently the developers never considered this as destroying more than one at a time caused the invincibility bug.

I was not impressed.

It was never an amazing game to begin with, just some simple mindless fun. But when the final boss is so buggy, that's a serious issue. I have no doubt if I looked into it I'd find countless other problems throughout. Releasing a game in such a state is inexcusable. Even when it's on sale at massive discount, I cannot recommend this. It is lazy to release a game with such huge obvious problematic glitches. This is something that even a small amount of playtesting should have caught.

Needed some tricks to work on a dual screen setup, see the Steam forums for a solution.
The controls (I've tested with both kb+mouse and a joypad) are quite unintuitive no matter how I set them up. Also the voice acting is mostly annoying, but the game looks really good and who wouldn't love the steampunk setting.

Still, unfortunately in terms of playability, there are a lot arcade shooters out there which are better.

Bought this game cheaper than dirt and it still wasn't worth it. Absolutely awful. The in-game performance is fine, even on max settings (and it does look fairly nice), but for some reason there's MASSIVE slowdown on the menus - any menu I tried to access was nearly unusable as the game rendered one frame every few seconds.

The controls are awful. I haven't tried it with a controller, but with a keyboard, WASD was a horrible choice. The maps are placed diagonally, yet you move on standard XY axes. The maps aren't even at a 45 degree angle, so you'll have to juggle between one direction and another to travel down, say, a long canal. Also, most "rooms" are small boxes, so you'll have to awkwardly switch from one misaligned direction to another. The developer should have added an option for this control scheme: W - Forward, S - Backward, A & D - Turn left and right, respectively. If I remember right, that's what Battleship: Surface Thunder did, and that game is a hundred times better than this terrible clone.

The game, for the short time I played it, seemed like it had the potential to be fun, but trying to actually play it was such a terrible chore, I decided it really wasn't worth the time to get used to the bad controls or the small amount of space it took up out of 2.5 TB available on my computer. Waste of even 79 cents. If I could go back and stop myself from buying it, I might decide to buy it later on anyway if it went on sale for, say, a penny. Sitting uninstalled in my library, it isn't worth anything anyway, except as a warning to others.
