    Black Sand Drift clearly wants to stand out in the crowd. Its atypical visual, musical style, overly complex plot, and high level of difficulty makes it feel like the developers tried to squeeze too many ideas into one game. And while I admire their ambition, I feel that they stumbled in the execution.

    This is not a good game.
    It's a plain vertical shooter, that has the bizarre and abstract character design as the only thing it has going for it, and even then, most people would say that they are just simply ugly, like the rest of the game is. Ugly, boring and unimaginative... Which actually extends to the gameplay. There are no formations to the enemy lines, and they aren't even actively trying to stop you, they just stand in place, hundreds in numbers, and wait for you to mow them down. It's also very slow, but that was fixed by adding a "turbo" button, which should be the default speed in the first place, but it's nice that you can toggle between them on the fly. As for the music, it consists mostly of a mellow song with moaning vocals in the background. Needless to say, it's rather unfitting.
