    Like the best shoot-em-ups, play here is about fine margins and non-stop action, and once the onslaught begins, it's especially hard to stop the beat running away with you.

    It might not fulfil its potential but Wave – Against every BEAT! is still a pretty fun bullet hell type shooter.

    It's sure to be impenetrable to causal players, but Wave is the perfect tribute to old skool shooters: it boasts addictive gameplay, sterling presentation and is as tough as old boots.

    Has its charms, but the visuals border on going overboard (which is in itself fairly impressive considering the genre), making your continued survival a combination of luck and twitchy skills.

    Wave's music-integration gimmick doesn't really work, making this top-down shooter a bit dull.
