Redux: Dark Matters is an ultra hot classic shmup and definitely a must have for every shmup fan. Released successfully at the beginning of 2014 as a brandnew Dreamcast game in limited edition - now the games comes as a beautiful super sharp 16:9/720p and 1080p full HD PC version on Steam for worldwide distribution right before the same year ends!

Redux: Dark Matters is a fast-paced space shooting game with fresh scoring elements and some review called the game a bastard-hard shooter. However, you have to master 7 stages with different ambiance which is indeed anything but easy - not yet spoken of the boss encounters. Always watch out since each and every thing is loaded with whatever to discover. Your ship is armed with rapid fire, sub-weapons, rockets and more - in other words with all you need to make it through - it depends on you!

The story takes place in the year 2067, when the “Space Force” organisation was exploring the galaxy for new strong and powerful materials to produce more powerful battle ships they discovered a space mine on a strange asteroid on the enemy territories. The scientists now began to analyze the material and concluded they had found the one material to build the best space ship ever.

One year later, the prototype was finished and the test results show unmatched battle power. However, the material seemed to be unstable and the use of the assembled ship was highly risky but since the Evil threat, was close to destroy the whole universe, the organisation was forced to let the ship fly.

NOW, go to experience the highlights of the game - pilot your space ship, blast off the mechanized servants of evil and save the world!

Redux: Dark Matters reviews and comments

This is a classic shoot first released on Dreamcast. Style R-type colorful and easier, to take 2 euros Max. attention: it is poorly optimized and poses a problem to the owners of a 144 Hz screen. Indeed, after a few seconds of play, everything accelerates to become unplayable. It is necessary to limit the graphics card in 60 Hz Max to calm the ardors of the game. Too bad, hopefully a patch someday!

I would want to say that I like this game, but I can't, because my Antivirus Software detects the executable file as a virus. Taking into account that my AV software is AVAST (a well known AV company), I can't undertand why the developers of this game are not taking any action to contact Avast and to explain it the problem. It's quite strange that the developers have used (or that seems) some kind of strategy so weird or uncommon so that AVAST considers the executable file as a virus. Si no te gusta mi análisis, te jodes como Herodes. Qué se la pique un pollo a Brÿnhilðrnn y toda su chusma que me vota negativo. ¡¡¡¡Hipoglúcidos!!!!! Alehop, todos los votos negativos fuera. ^^

With Redux: Dark Matters something happened that, although it still happens from time to time, still seems like a little Miracle to me: In 2014, a new Game was released for the Sega Dreamcast, for a Console that saw the Light of day in 1998 and whose Support by Sega already has been three Years Later, 2001, was stopped. For Sega, this was the End as a Console Maker. But Since Dreamcast still has Rightfully Cult Status to This day and, unlike today's Consoles, was designed to continue serving even after 15 Years, new Games find their Way to the Console again and again thanks to small, independent Publishers. Mind You, not Ports originally developed for other Platforms, but Games that were developed entirely for the Dreamcast. This certainly has to do with the fact that it is relatively easy for Hobby programmers to program for the Dreamcast-Your Software is based on Windows CE and The Games can be prepared on CDs that the Console can read without any Problems. One such Game, funded via Croudfounding, is Redux: Dark Matters. A Remake of a horizontally scrolling Dreamcast Shoot'm Ups that playfully leans heavily on R-Type. The graphic is decorated in Pastel Colours and the Opponents are sometimes very imaginative. Since the Dreamcast Version didn't run quite smoothly-which you might forgive Because of the aged Dreamcast hardware-this Windows Port runs aastically, and the Graphics are also a whole Corner prettier. Even if it offers Little new feature technology, I would suggest it to any Shoot'm Up fan. And I find new Dreamcast games basically worth supporting anyway!
