Swarm Universe reviews and comments

[Game version V1.0.1] [System: Windows 10 Pro x64] Ever rescued a Princess at a stylish Top-Down shooter? Not? Mario would also fade with Envy:D Swarm Universe is the spiritual Successor to the 2010 Game Swarm Arena. In the Beginning, it wasn't just the Light! But also an Organism. Step by Step, you will be told how to control it. In Fact, you will be shown how to protect the Organism from the malicious creatures that want you to be leverished with the help of a swarm. A multi-layered Shield also serves well, allowing you to take several Hits as well. Story So there's a Bot. A slightly strange Bot ... He's probably something ... Well, you'll see;) Ahja there was also something with a Princess?! Let's just Call the Story fit for purpose. The Acting performances of the Bot are not even so bad. Still a better love story than Twilight. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=894882878 Control For Swarm Control, a Gamepad is clearly recommended. With the Keyboard, the Swarm also flies through the Area, but you have the Feeling of acting in a bit of limited action. (You can dive naked without Equipment. It also works conditionally but with Equipment and full of Montage it is certainly easier to fathom the Depths of the Ocean.) Gameplay According to the Motto "Easy to learn but hard to master," you work your Way through the countless Levels, while the Learning Curve is constantly attracted a Step further. The Mastery Of the Swarm, good Reflexes and the right Timing are in the Foreground. A Number Of different Types Of opponents will try to make life difficult for You. From the Sniper to the self-breaking kamikaze flier, there's everything there. Pulverizing Enemies with the Swarm also brings you Points. A variable Multiplier that slowly degrades provides the necessary Inspiration. Would also be boring to stroll Idle through the Levels. With the Steam Workshop Integration and an absolutely great, powerful Editor, the Door is also open to new Challenges from the Community. Over the top is a high score board for each Level. Aaaaah! Do I need to say more? Ne, just play one More round and try to climb higher in the Rankings. The Progress of the game in the individual Levels is stored by Checkpoints, which are also set fairly, unless one proceeds too ill-considered;) Game Modes You can make your Way through a number of single player Levels on The one hand, but also test your Multiplayer skills with Well-known Modes such as Capture the Flag, Deathmatch or King of the Hill. The MP Levels support up to 8 Players, depending on the Map. You really hope that we can expect many new Maps from the Community in this Area. It just makes a Whim:D http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=895077909 Graphic Straight the detailed Opponent design and effects are a real Feast for The eyes. The Game places comparatively low Demands on the Hardware and should run perfectly on older Boxes as well. On my 980Ti, even without Grumbling, the Game rocks the 5k (DSR) at at least 60 Frames and that really looks extremely groovy. Sound The Explosions have neat wumms and the Music in the individual Levels could not be more appropriately mixed. He perfectly supports what'S On and when it gets down to Business, na Holla the Waldfee haha! Play Time For the existing solo levels, calculate a good 3-5h Playing time, depending on how intensely you play them or deals with the high score boards. In addition, of course, there is endless Fun through the Multiplayer, the Editor and the Steam Workshop or the Content that can be found there and hopefully will still be published in the future. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=895160938 Bugs? During my Gameplay I had no Difficulties or Crashes Whatsoever. All in all, you can say that the Release version is running neatly! Already impressive what this Two-man team has put on its Feet, all the Respect! FAZIT: Pupe-rich Gameplay, gaudy effects, beautiful opponent design and a great Soundtrack will make you forget the Time at Swarm Universe as you fever against the next High score! -Attention high Addictive Potential:P I very much hope that the powerful Editor will Resonate, because here we have an almost infinite Potential of quirky Creatures and great Levels! Cheers, Fletcher
