    Picked it up from the latest HIB pack. This game has the potential to be great, but at the moment it seems pretty bland. The shooting gets boring after about two minutes, the platforming vacillates between boring and merciless, enemies materialize right underneath you dealing you annoying damage, and the game only draws a portion of the map, so you're constantly having to shoot at enemiesPicked it up from the latest HIB pack. This game has the potential to be great, but at the moment it seems pretty bland. The shooting gets boring after about two minutes, the platforming vacillates between boring and merciless, enemies materialize right underneath you dealing you annoying damage, and the game only draws a portion of the map, so you're constantly having to shoot at enemies (and get shot be enemies) that are located somewhere in the unnecessary black void. It's especially annoying with the fast-moving enemies or the swarms because it makes it difficult to track the action. You can literally back right into an enemy just because the inexcusably short draw distance sometimes makes it impossible to see two inches in front of you. The game's redeeming feature is its level building and customization, but I have no interest in building content for gameplay that's simultaneously frustrating and mind-numblingly dull. I pray that the *official* release sees significant improvements. Expand

    There is no question this game can be good. The graphics look promising for the feeling they are trying to give with the game but you can barely see anything due to the ridiculously short render distance. There is no tutorial to introduce you to the game. All those pickups in game? Yeah, after a couple hours of play i have no idea what they do. You get pickups like chocolate and apples butThere is no question this game can be good.

There is no tutorial to introduce you to the game. All those pickups in game? Yeah, after a couple hours of play i have no idea what they do. You get pickups like chocolate and apples but i could not, for the life of me, figure out what they do. The mouse controlling the direction you shoot in is horrible. It only has 8 preset directions you can fire in. If you're gonna do that in your game make it so you can shooting using the directional keys.A good thing is that you can alter the level but shooting at in game structures when they happen to exist, allowing you to take out that enemies behind the wall without going around it. All in all the game looks like i may be promising but right now it is a total joke. Granted it is still in Alpha but i don't see these problems changing any time soon. Expand

    Voxatron is terrible. It's everything wrong with indie games and their development condensed into one project.

    The developers sold people on an alpha version in a humble bundle years ago, when it was barely a tech demo, and years later it is still a tech demo. It is not a game. They've since tried to spin the project into a kind of "game development platform" by releasing some tools,

They've since tried to spin the project into a kind of "game development platform" by releasing some tools, which I take as an admission they are never going to produce an actual game and are hoping someone else will do it for them. Small software projects that have not fallen completely off the rails do not change so radically or take so long.

    I only paid like for that $2 humble bundle but still feel ripped off. I wish I gave that money to a homeless man.
