Early Access Review Very Good Arcade Shooter-with extensive Expansion of Weapon systems and Powerups. In Conjunction with the Ship upgrades that can be unlocked In the game, some Tactics also come into Play. And there are no Limits to combining it.

Product received for free Early Access review Boring, poorly optimized, unsightly and not at all original, the worst Shoot'em up I've played in years. I am glad that I had given the key, gives the impression that it has not the slightest shred of love put on the part of its creators.

Product received for free Early Access review The Game Although it seems very simple is really good and entertaining, it is VERY difficult! Edit: The developer constantly updates and also pays attention to all the comments and suggestions, is very good. It Has a small but active community.

Early access review + this game is a bit like Gradius, so EXCELLENT:) + the music is fine. + Several different ships. + A lot of possible improvement on the ships! + 4 players in co-op. + Many levels. + Regular update. + Cheap. -Languages only in English and Japanese. -Far too many enemy ships in survival mode.

Early access review do you like Gradius? You will love this game in pre-access currently. The upgrades are well managed, there is a garage before each mission to well choose its weapon options (quasi 200 at the moment) the developer listens well to his players and frankly it is cheap for the number of hours you will spend on it. So don't hesitate anymore!

Excellent Graphics and very colorful and Curran scenarios but.... At least for me the gameplay is tremendously dull, monotonous, that appears on the screen if you can call them enemies rather seem waves of sperm at a slow pace desperately, I have played in Arcade mode and medium difficulty and how hard it has been not to fall asleep killing those mosquitoes that appear in repetitive waves endless and that come to ballast this graphic marvel but disastrous in gameplay, WITHOUT NERVE OR CLAW Despite so much facade is an empty game. The RIGID FORCE ALPHA is a Delight beside this.

Unfortunately not a "Jets and Guns" similar Game. The Powerup Theme is boring, the Weapons are also Mediocrity, are all kind of similar. No Comparison whatsoever To the Game mentioned in the first Movement, which revolutionized this Genre. Is also very often totally confusing what flies through the Area. Since everyone kills every Hit, that's pretty mies, when graphic Stuff makes sure you either don't see your own Ship anymore, or the opponents don't anymore. There would be slightly less "graphic Frills" better. I'm disappointed, but I've only played single Player. Maybe it's really more Fun in the Co-op.
