    Highly overrated game. They have some nice ideas with the manipulation of elements, but the execution is mediocre at best...the so called "puzzles" are extremely rudimentary and easy. No challege. The solution to each "scene" is so obvious it's not even enjoyable. Just mindlessly blasting through areas to get to the miners...not that good.

  1. PixelJunk Shooter is a taut, well-made and original game that's been lavished with good design and slick coding. It won't detain you long - and without giving too much away, the post-credits kill-screen suggests a DLC expansion is highly likely, as does PixelJunk's past history. But for every minute of those few hours, it's an unpredictable, fluidly entertaining blast.
  2. There can be no doubt that the game's over too soon, but the journey is still worth travelling. When water meets lava... Well, that's worth the asking price alone.
  3. Pixeljunk Shooter is a unique and addictive shooter, its got plenty to keep you thinking and every minute playing it is a joy. For the asking price its hard to fault, Highly recommended
