    It looks great, it's easy to pick up and play, and it's fun. What more do you need?

    Much more than a shooter, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is an ingenious game of elemental manipulation.

    A super enjoyable puzzle/shooter hybrid.

    I love the colorful environments, the little messages from explorers, and the sense of satisfaction you get from clearing a level quickly. Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate plods along at a slower pace than you'd expect from the shooter genre, but its style and adventuresome attitude make it endearing and perfect for PlayStation Vita.

    Fell in love with PixelJunk games. After amazing tower-defense Monsters, Shooter is another fantastic game that fits PS Vita perfectly, offersFell in love with PixelJunk games. After amazing tower-defense Monsters, Shooter is another fantastic game that fits PS Vita perfectly, offers huge amount of content and hours of fun and addicting gameplay. Main campaign with lots of shooting action including challenging boss fights and probably even more logic/puzzle elements. There is certainly no shortage of variation here, different locations, many enemy types, various suits for your ship with new features that change the game completely. Going deeper and deeper into the core of the planet, rescuing scientist and even though this game is not primarily about the story, thanks to the found survivors who will tell you the info of what's going on, this game is also surprisingly quite atmospheric. When I finished the campaign I was ready to give this a solid 8, but after I tried the multiplayer, things got even better. Another incredibly catchy part of the game, yet very different, this time more tactical and action oriented than the single player, but probably even even more fun, addicting and competitive. Pity that connection breaks so easily, that's my only gripe, but other than that this is another PixelJunk masterpiece for PS Vita and one of the best games for that platform. 9/10 Expand

    Not really the fast paced twin stick shooter I was expecting. More of a puzzle game. Game can be tedious when you have to redo a lot of thingsNot really the fast paced twin stick shooter I was expecting. More of a puzzle game. Game can be tedious when you have to redo a lot of things if you die but the sections are relatively small. Lots of fun in short bursts and plays well on Vita. Good time waster that isn't very hard.
