Reviews

“The original game was already an addictive and sublime twin-stick shooter, to begin with, and the visual and gameplay facelift in this release turns it up several notches. You can’t go wrong here, especially if you’re after an excellent shooter with great controls.”
8/10 – NoisyPixel

“Reviving Black Widow is a deep cut into Atari’s history, but it’s great to see it given a worthy sequel almost forty years since the original release”
80 – Hardcore Gamer

“It’s the best Recharged game so far, and an enjoyable twin-stick shooter in its own right”
4/5 – SwitchArcade
