    Pressure is meant to entertain, and believe us when we say it does. It's like an old 2D shooter evolved, with fun gameplay and an addictive multiplayer.

    Pressure is fun. That’s why we get back to it from time to time. It’s not designed to keep you going for hours, it’s more suitable for a quick round during your lunch break. The witty story, its decent sound and graphics and the fact that it’s simply to pick up compensate for the lack of variety in gameplay.

    Pressure has become a small but entertaining game, that brings you back to the good old years that you spent in the arcade halls. The gameplay is simple and fast-paced, and thanks to the steampunk graphics it's also enjoyable to watch. The levels are short, so you can take a break whenever you want. The game is a bit short in length overall, but still you can have a lot of fun in your big journey for water.

    Pressure is an interesting mix of shooter and top-down racing, packed with a lot of nice ideas, but in the end the concept doesn't work well.

    Pressure provides gamers with entertaining shoot-em-up and arcade racing gameplay mechanics that are unfortunately overshadowed by repetitive level design. With the uninspired game design and lack of a real narrative, Pressure provides a mediocre experience at best.

    All that being said, the core of Pressure is a fun ride. Good mechanics go a long way towards making a great action-racer, but the bumps along the road end up bogging this down at the end of the race.

    The best way to describe Pressure is “bland”. Aside from three entertaining boss encounters, it is monotonous and charmless.

    It doesn't do anything new or exciting, but nor does it offend in any great way. There are plenty of little mistakes, and just not enough to make them forgiveable. It's a pretty average game with decent presentation. For something a bit more time consuming or in depth, I'd look elsewhere. If you just want a distraction then maybe.

    The steampunk approach in track and vehicle design is charming, but mechanics lack variety and most of all tight controls, regardless if you enter the course with a gamepad, keyboard or mouse at your disposal.

    Nice little game for short gaming sessions now and then. It's plain and simple fun and great if you want to blow off some steam.

    Reminds me of the old days. Pure Arcade fun without any stupid extra features no one needs. Good controls and a solid gameplay with great boss fights.
