About

IN A WORLD where the Council rules the nations with an iron fist, you play as Axo, pilot of the legendary ship Chukaru. Experience her fight with the limitless armies of the Council, become the master of Chukaru’s power and find the true meaning behind all your actions. A dark secret is yet to be revealed! Accessible to the simple press of a button, Pawarumi offers you three different weapons and one super attack to rain divine fire on your enemies! To protect you in your intense journey, a shield will automatically trigger when you're about to be hit. It will annihilate any bullet around you! True to the shoot'em up genre, that shield is powerful but depletes very quickly so you'll still have to be very careful! THE TRINITY SYSTEM By shooting with the right weapon on the right type of enemy, Chukaru's unique Trinity System enables you to deal extra damage, heal your shield or recharge your super attack at any time! Not unlike the famous game of rock-paper-scissors, this original gameplay mechanic gives a whole new tactical layer to the genre. Mastering these three mechanics will be key to your success in Pawarumi. They offer lots of strategic opportunities and always allows you to fall back on your feet, even after making a tiny mistake! The more you'll play, the better you'll juggle with the weapons, find your own style, finish the game and reach the top of the leaderboard! Unique Artistic Direction: Set in a unique pre-columbian inspired sci-fi universe! Presented in full 3D: Allowing glorious cinematic staging! Five Unique Levels: All around the world and inspired by classics from the 1990s pop culture! (Indiana Jones, James Bond, Star Wars…) Trinity Game Mechanic: Three fused mechanics that enable infinite strategies! Weapon Mastery Scoring System: Build up your own scoring strategy with careful weapon juggling. With no long standing combos to maintain, scorers will never be frustrated! Are you ready to challenge the top of the leaderboard? Dynamic Layered Music: Awesome Electro Metal Peruvian soundtrack! Full Keyboard and Controller Support: With remappable inputs for maximum compatibility! Pawarumi offers a deep and satisfying experience, bringing delight to newcomers of the genre as well as to experienced players!

PAWARUMI reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
A magnificent shoot'em up... for which I asked reimbursement again a case where the evaluation system shows its weakness with the absence of neutral evaluation. Pawarumi is an excellent Shmup. Sumptuous graphics that plunge us into a sublime Aztech futuristic universe. It's fluid, it's very fast, the dialogues between each level acting as a loading screen leave us barely time to blow, allowing us to take full advantage of a short but intense adventure. Adventure that also boasts a quality soundtrack in a style oriented rock/metal/electro. Gameplay level, it is played in vertical scrolling where a color system brings a wind of novelty in this kind of game. Three shooting buttons for three colors (blue, green, red) and three different firing modes (boost, crush, drain). The effects of your shooting will depend on the color of the ship you're firing on. For example, the Green shot will activate: the boost (recharge the shield) by pulling on a green enemy, the crush (increased damage) on a red enemy and the drain (recharge the Special attack) on a blue enemy. Many different style and effect zone attacks, which allow to vary its gameplay in order to achieve the desired effect and thus maximize its chances of success. A little hard to take in hand however, and some brush entanglement once at the heart of the action. Three game modes make up this title: tutorial (it really matters?), training (to improve you) and main mode: Arcade (three levels of difficulty, each with a separate ranking) where the levels are chained and you have to survive the most as long as possible while making the best possible score. But what's wrong then? Just the price. I had the chance to discover the game presented by manufacture 43 at a salon "geek" (BGF). He had enchanted me, so I followed the project afterwards until his release in January 2018, where his price had greatly cooled me. Arrived at the summer sale, and a discount of 50%, I decided to take advantage. And even at this price, I feel like I'm being had. In less than two hours, the tour is almost done, and the rest of the game is only to beat the records in order to reach the top of the ranking, hence my request for reimbursement. In the end, we have a beautiful game, a fun and quality gameplay, all in an adapted atmosphere, but whose price does not reflect the content offered. It is therefore to be reserved for the freaks of the podium. I hope, for my part, to see one day a better trimmed suite or additional content with new fashions. I hope to see good things on the part of the Bordeaux colleagues at manufacture 43. While waiting for a possible price drop, the game returns to my wish list because I intend to play it again one day, given the quality proposed.
