Graceful Explosion Machine is the perfect arcade style shooter, and one of the best Switch games available right now. Its fluid, addictive gameplay and flashy yet minimal visuals pair well with a variety of challenging enemies, and it’s great for sessions lasting for a few minutes or a couple hours.
Graceful Explosion Machine is an intelligently designed 2D shooter for the Switch. The developers obviously put a lot of thought into the weapon and high score systems and made a title that you’ll want to replay over and over. The Nintendo Switch may still have a low number of retail releases, but Graceful Explosion Machine is another indie title that will keep you enthralled on both the go and at home.
Graceful Explosion Machine builds an intense, addictive shoot-em-up around a satisfying weapon-juggling system and smart enemies. The Switch’s HD Rumble adds a unique feeling to every explosion in this colorful shooter, and earning a good spot on the leaderboard is an intense challenge thanks to dense swarms of enemies. But even when a pesky foe slapped down my scoring run, I always had the urge to jump back into these crowded corridors and try again.
Graceful Explosion Machine is a white-knuckle shooter that barely allows for a moment’s rest as swarms of weird alien creatures arrive one after the other to crowd you off their planet, never quite realizing that the denser they swarm, the higher the multiplier can get. They’re not too bright that way, but with a little careful weapons management, it will all work out fine.
Graceful Explosion Machine is the gaming equivalent of empty calories. It's pretty to look at, super smooth, and has some interesting weapons, but there's no real hook to keep you sustained beyond the act of moving around and blowing up aliens.
Game looks great, ignore the 1 score review.
Disgruntle co worker, perhaps?
Perhaps a jealous fellow pupil...
When all ither reviews are 7 or more and there's one review with a 1 score and a novel saying just why they thinks... you know something's not quite right. Hopefully this will go some way to normalising the score.
Bem divertido e algumas vezes desafiador. Precisa de certa estratégia para passar de certas fases. 4 mundos apenas é pouco. Deveria haver mais mundos e/ou mais desafios para valer nota maior. Gráficos legais, trilha sonora meio fraca, mas passa
Graceful explosion machine is a fun arcade shooter mini game for the Switch. I had a few hours of fun and got through 75% of the game. My problem with the game is that It's basically the same thing over and over with slightly different opponents. I don't really want to continue playing even though I'm only a few levels from completing the game.
If you like shooting stuff and don't mind grinding to get the perfect score you could pick this game up, I mean, it's only 10€. But if you want to play an amazing indie title you should probably look somewhere else.
While this is a highly addictive game, and a really pretty one after a couple of hours you'll find it repetitive, but that isn't bad if you are a completionist, and specialy it isnt bad whe playin it on the go.
However being a simple game as it is its price and lack of 2 players (wasting the unique feature of the switches joycons) puts this game on a solo shooting frenzy that most of the times you will just end up playing when going to the bathroom,
Perhaps a bit of a lower price and/or adding the capability of 2 players would earn this game twice the score given for an indie game
Here's another awful game preying on the Switch's lack **** library. You want a boring game where you go around the same screen over and over and over again until your eyes bleed, this is it! The developers use looping stages as though it was some kind of awesome feature, but it's just laziness. The music is non-existent in this game and the enemy variety will make you rip your hair out in frustration. You get 4 weapons that are all pooled into the same energy meter, then you get a basic blaster weapon, that also has its own energy bar! Why?! How dumb. Why would your basic shot have an energy meter. You have to spend just as much time out maneuvering the enemies in this game as you do actually firing on them. And these are the cheapest enemies around. Like the enemy that clings to the wall and fires off an arm that goes the entire length of the screen, or the classic enemy that explodes and gets smaller as you keep shooting it. The worst part is that the enemies are only killed by your weapons. There isn't any splash damage from other explosions. So that enemy that gets smaller and smaller as you destroy it, eventually spawns a glowing red explosive variety that zooms after you, blow it up and it creates a vast explosion ring that only hurts you and does no damage to any other enemy. This game also doesn't shy away from giving you way more on screen than you can handle. There are 4 planets in the game and each planet has 9 levels and each level is broken down into 3 phases, except for warp levels, we'll talk about those later. Each phase has a set amount of enemies you have to kill before moving on. Die in a phase and you go back to the beginning of that phase instead of just respawning then and there. Die in the first phase and you may as well just start over, trust me. Then you have the warp levels, the 9th level of each planet. These levels have no phases, just an octagon plastered on the wall of the caves you are in that glows from section to section as you kill enemies. Almost done filling up the light on the octagon and you die? Right back to the beginning of the level with you. This level you should definitely just restart if you die. If you like score attack games, then you'll probably like this. If you like frustrating games with too many enemies and weapons that always have you at a disadvantage vs your enemies, then you'll definitely like this. Just because you're starving for games on the Switch doesn't mean that this is a good buy for $10. Keep your cash and just play more Zelda instead.
