    If you like shooting infinite hordes of monsters from a top-down perspective, Crimsonland is one of the best options you have.

    It’s fast, full of enemies, and has a sweet soundtrack to boot. It’s hard to ignore how powerful Crimsonland makes the player feel as they mow down copious enemies as blood splatters cover the entire field.

    Crimsonland is one of those very simple games that is very easy to pick up and play, but extremely difficult to master.

    It is a fun game but we get the feeling that it could have been expanded upon. If you're looking for just a twin-stick shooter have a look at this one.

    A traditional top-down shooter that relies heavily on mastered game mechanics, a huge number of levels, weapons and monsters, and gameplay that will satisfy your lust for blood. Unfortunately, it is designed as a multiplayer game which cannot be played via the Internet, which drastically undermines its entertainment.

    Is it great to play solo? Perhaps the first 60 missions. I can attest to having fun despite the problems I noted, but it is definitely better to play with your friends afterwards, especially in Survival. BLAST ‘EM TO BITS!

    Crimsonland may not be particularly flashy, but it does successfully deliver an old-school arcade shooting experience.

    Très bon petit défouloir, addictif et super difficile en very hard, quand on commence on a du mal à s'arrêter, c'est ce que l'on demande à unTrès bon petit défouloir, addictif et super difficile en very hard, quand on commence on a du mal à s'arrêter, c'est ce que l'on demande à un jeu vidéo.

    On incarne un soldat qui doit défendre une position, des hordes interminable d'ennemi nous assaille, un peu à la manière d'un Gauntlet de la grande époque, vu de dessus, pas mal d'arme à disposition, de la gatlin, au pistolet en passant par le lance roquette, tout y est... on est aussi aidé par des items qui apparaissent aléatoirement après avoir abattu un monstre, tourbillon de feu, freeze, rapidité etc ... les niveaux s'enchainent, la difficulté va crescendo et le plaisir avec, je le conseille vivement pour le prix, en plus on peut y jouer à 4 en coop local, les manettes sont reconnu de suite et le clavier souris est une bonne alternative.
    Pas mal de succès à débloquer et plusieurs mode de jeu sont dispo.

    Re-released recently for modern HD screens. Same old game, same old flaws like many weapons being useless and various perks also being mostlyRe-released recently for modern HD screens. Same old game, same old flaws like many weapons being useless and various perks also being mostly useless. There is an odd difficulty curve, the singleplayer missions are all fairly easy except for 2.10 and 6.10 because of Spideroids on those two missions. They make the game nearly impossible especially on harder difficulties, whereas every other level and boss is easy in comparison. Despite these flaws everyone I know keeps playing it when they have 10 minutes to burn. Any crappy PC can run it and it has local coop but only with controllers for the extra players which is very hard to aim with. I'd hate to call it a classic but it fits the definition literally, a game you kept going back to for years. It's a cheaply made budget 2d shooter, yes, but it's also well-done for what it is and for some reason keeps pulling you back. Expand

I heard it compared at least once to Smash TV, and that's probably the best comparison. Run, shoot, reload, pick up some powerups like smart bombs, incendiary rounds, bullet time and arcing electrical blasts, and hopefully not die. There's a lengthy quest mode, as well as a bunch of survival modes, all of which have up to four player, same-screen local coop, a rarity for PC games. The graphics are minimal but sufficient, and the music is completely appropriate cheesy buttrock. A great party game. Expand

You run around the screen and shoot huge armies of melee enemies approaching from all sides. You have a small arsenal of weapons to choose from. The controls (rotating the character with the mouse and moving with WASD) work pretty well. The music is great, and the whole thing is extremely addictive. It has pretty low-budget graphics, even for the time when it was released, but this doesn't really matter. Expand

    You've probably already played a hundred different top down horde shooters for free on various flash game websites already. Or at least youYou've probably already played a hundred different top down horde shooters for free on various flash game websites already. Or at least you have if you were in middle school when I was. So paying the full price for this game would just be silly. It doesn't do anything new or exciting enough to justify a full purchase and is mindless entertainment at best.

    That said, given I just stumbled across this in my library after purchasing some bundle or other, I had a lot of fun with it for a while. It's nothing revolutionary but it has tons of levels, guns, and powerups and is just dumb and satisfying. There's local coop and online leaderboards and generally a lot of features, plus the list of weapons is huge and inventive. All in all I consider it the best version I've played of that shooty thing I used to play on my middleschool lunch breaks, but not one I would recommend shelling out for directly.
