Switch 'N' Shoot reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Product received for free Switch'n'shoot-an unusual shoot'em'up from a lone developer, Meta Glenvale Switch'n'shoot has migrated to us on personal computers from mobile devices. On smartphones, this game has not become too popular and its developer has decided to port it to personal computers and consoles on the type of Xbox and Playstation. The Game was released on October 16, 2016 and its price is $1.99 in the CIS countries and 79 rubles on the territory of Russia. Honestly, this game is almost nothing to tell. This Is a classic Shoot'em'upp, such as longtime our friend Space Invaders. We still fly and kill enemy units. But, this game is not so similar to Neon Space Ultra (You can read the review here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/fcvolodumyr/recommended/463550). Enemies appear in random places, thus forcing the player to change their location. Enemies do not shoot, but you can only kill one touch with them. As you progress through the level we will be falling improvements, with the help of our shells will change. The very first projectile is very small, but for example the fourth one produces three medium shells. I can not forget about the special type of enemies, which will give you a shield in the murder, which will protect from one collision with the enemy. This especially helps on the 2-3 zone where the enemies have an unmeasured amount. Speaking of zones, I want to say that there are more than 10 of them in the game and the passage in each subsequent zone gives you a bonus to points. For Example, the second zone will give you + 12% to your account, but the third will already give + 38%. The Main feature of Switch'n'shoot is that the control is carried out with only one button. It does Not matter what button it is, whether it is Space, whether it is a WASD button or a button on the controller. When you press the key, our spaceship changes its direction and shoots the projectile. This is The whole essence of the game and gameplay. At first I did not understand how it will be convenient to play, but you know, it is very convenient. I also want to mention that the game did not abandon the bosses. They are not too diverse, but each is interesting in its own way. Graphically The game is very simple. Primitive pixel art, primitive colors, but they are at least acidic, as in most similar projects. Also in the game there is a nice bonus-you can change the colors of all that is in the game. This was the same on mobile devices, but only in the paid version. In General, you can view screenshots from this game on the official game page of the Steam store. Verdict: Good Shoot'em'upp for a very modest price and even with unusual management, which is not so common. The Game is worth your attention if you just want to spend a nice one or two evenings. Rating: 7.2/10. Too monotonous and can get bored in a short time. The Review was compiled by Ci8, a member of the BigBadWhale Games group in collaboration with WeLoveBundles [welovebundles.ru] The Key to the game provided by the Publisher, but it does not affect my opinion and evaluation.
