    Quite a fresh take on the Shmup genre, this game has a lot to offer: gorgeous graphics, a wide range of unlockable ships & weapons, grand boss fights. It also comes with sloppy foreground - background separation, way too small target collision and a negative feedback loop that borders on unfair.

    A sublimely clever, well-designed, borderline impossible shooter. It will utterly consume you if you let it. [June 2012, p.71]

    Grasshopper Manufacture prove once again they are the cream of the crop in making the extraordinary visuals. Only this time they add fantastic gameplay, which means this game is a masterpiece that is going to absorb you completely.
