    Much much better than many reviews say, kept me up all night tonight trying to finish the advanced levels. Definitely hope they do an expansion for this one.

    It doesn't look great but the design is really brilliant, each level you play teaches you something and after a while levels that just seemed completely impossible are easy, and brilliant fun to try and get your highscore up. It's definitely the thinking man's shoot'em up.

    How can Geometry Wars be rated above this title? It has the same control system but adds a lot of variety. Great fun at a sweet price.

  1. Avoid this like you would a back street endoscopy. [July 2007, p.114]
  2. It's not a very pleasant experience and there just isn't enough fun to persuade you that you're spending your time wisely. [July 2007, p.84]
  3. A curious game that will seem a little uncomfortable to some factions of both the shmup fanboys and casual players. Still, it is a great piece of software that manages to offer plenty of variation through well-designed level objectives, and at a price you can afford with pocket change.
