    A good, solid shoot’em up that neatly copies from the best representatives of the genre but is accessible even to beginners. [06/2014, p.71]

Excellent, clean graphics, with high visibility within the ensuing onscreen (beautiful) madness, and a clear and obvious hitbox on the player-controlled ship. Quick, responsive controls tested so far with a homemade arcade control stick as well as a PS3 controller through Motioninjoy drivers. This game supports 90-degree rotated screen/portrait/TATO mode, so I much prefer to play it that way. And, finally, the soundtrack is excellent... very good, drivings rhythm. My only point of criticism is that I wish the leaderboards were online as well as local, but that may happen in time, especially if the developer's Steam Greenlight drive is successful. Also, the price is unbelievably cheap and cheerful I would happily pay a bit more, but I'm not complaining. Overall, I've been excited about this title since I played the pre-release demo a few months ago, and I think the final work is an absolute gem. If arcades were still a thing, I'd be pumping quarters into this thing like mad. I find that I really get into the rhythm of this game, almost taking a back seat to my subconscious/intuition while dodging bullets, which isn't something I experience often when gaming if you have to pause and think, you'll be wiped out in a split second! I really hope this small indie developer finds the commercial encouragement to keep developing titles of this genre on Windows. Highly recommended! Expand
