    As you fly along the constantly moving screen, you must decide if you want to sacrifice your score to get the normal power-ups (multishot, rapid fire etc) you see free in must over games like this. Whilst this is not entirely unique, it brings a little urgency to what is really a very simple game.

    The music in the game is terrible, the graphics simple and there is only mouse control - but what the hell I paid less than a quid for it.

    Load the game and give a blast for a few minutes a day and you wont be disappointed.

In fact I knew it was a fairly bad game when I went to buy it. It is incredibly simplistic and has nothing new or interesting about it. It's a bullet hell with very few redeeming qualities. The one quality it does have that is of interest is the fact that you can actually buy the Source Code for the game. This may be of interest to many fresh young starry-eyed developers who want a chance to look at the inner workings of a game. Even better the game was made in Unity, an easy to learn tool that most people can get a good understanding of in a few months.

    One of the big problems with Unity however is that there isn't much in the way of showing you advanced coding techniques. I haven't been able to get an extensive coding education so I thought this would be a perfect game for me to go in and scour over for hours on ends to pick up some new tricks and tools to add to my coding arsenal. The only problem is that while you gain access to the code, there is one thing you won't find buried inside the game. Comments. The one thing that coders leave behind to help other coders is missing. The one thing that can turn an endless hunt into a guided tour. There is no comments to be found throughout the entire code, aside from such gems as "Update is called once per frame", a comment that is defaulted into every single Unity script.

    This isn't a good game, and you shouldn't expect it to be. But I was expecting it to be a good learning experience. But I suppose if I want to learn something I will have to spend hours scouring Byron Atkinson-Jones code in order to decipher over several hours what SHOULD have been told to me in a couple of minutes.

    Don't buy this game. There is no reason.

    This is a shooter hell wannabe. 3 enemy types 2 projectile sprites, is priced extremely highly for a low effort game probably made in gameThis is a shooter hell wannabe. 3 enemy types 2 projectile sprites, is priced extremely highly for a low effort game probably made in game maker studio.

    I was and am very disappointed with the developers treatment of feedback. He has been immensely hostile over the short time the game has come out. and honestly feels like it should have been an android title.
