Reviews

“This shmup was built with a focus on art and the theme of aesthetics. From the ship, stages, and the bosses everything has a symbolic meaning. Honestly speaking you're committing a crime by not playing this.”
Game Skinny

“This is a slick package with excellent production values, and the levels are enjoyable and highly replayable.”
