    Zenzizenzic is rapid, colorful, simple, and just about as much fun as you can have playing a video game.

    Zenzizenzic is a beautiful, fun and deadly shot of abstract twin-stick bullet hell madness, but with a little experience and a lot of technique, the massive firepower coming your way turns into a bullet-filled playground of fantastic precision gaming.

    Zenzizenzic is a neat take on bullet hell, sans the Anime kitsch that it's usually wrapped in. For a debut project it shows professional execution and polish, and the catchy soundtrack should sweep players off their feet. With a price around ten bucks, it's a must-see for fans of the genre.

    With a striking yet simple presentation, Zenzizenzic is a fresh take on the twin-stick shooter.

    It's 2D, it's evil, it's trippy, but it's never frustrating. Zenzizenzic (try saying it fast for three times) fuses classic mechanics from old arcade shooters and modern elements. It's only weakness is the limited amount of this elements, but it's still a great choice for those who love the genre.

    While Zenzizenzic isn’t going to set the world on fire with its visual style or gameplay innovations, it’s a solid bullet-hell shooter with a kick-ass soundtrack that’s modestly priced.

    Artistic, responsive, knock-down difficult, and with a great soundtrack to boot, Zenzizenzic channels the toughest bullet-hell homebrews suchArtistic, responsive, knock-down difficult, and with a great soundtrack to boot, Zenzizenzic channels the toughest bullet-hell homebrews such as Vulkanon in its minimalistic visual design and maximalistic level, enemy, and bullet pattern design. Don't be fooled by the game having "five levels" in its arcade-ish mode - those levels are gigantic and tough, and the Macro mode is even crazier and infinite, given the random nature of roguelikes. If you're a shmup fan like me, this is a must-buy. Expand
