Furstrating but fun
Probably one of the most rage inducing, but at the same time fun scrolling shooters I've played. The fact that the game is truly challenging is what makes it fun, so I find it hard to believe the amount of reviews that simply complain that the game is too hard and rate it down. I guess people nowadays just sit back and play games not for the challenge and accomplishment but to just fry brain cells. Sure the hectic fights in just about every level are hard, but hell do people not enjoy trying over again and finally beating it? Or do people just lose like 3 times and rage quit. Anyways enough of my ranting, back to the actual review.
The gameplay was great and each level brought harder and harder challenges with even more frustrating enemies that now not only fired straight lines but every single direction. I really liked the idea of upgradable weapons, armor, and speed, however some of the weapons did seem a little pointless. As others mentioned, the weapons that fired slower generally didn't do a sufficient amount of damage to be effective and I just ended up going with ones that fired faster since there were always such ridiculous amount of enemies.
The sounds and music were good quality and unlike some other shoots didn't grow old after one level, possibly because there were so many enemies at every second that you never really had time to notice the music, but that's totally ok.
The one thing that got me was the fact that levels really had no replay value because the amount of experience you received each time you completed it decreased. However, this does prevent grinding and getting overpowered and making the game too easy, which was what I ranted about for the first half of this. The achievements however had me going back to the older levels and added even more fun challenges to the game.
Overall a very well made, crazy, hectic, shooter that's lots of fun. Great Job
