    It's tough to describe how amazing Inversus feels on paper, but once you pick it up for the first time you'll understand. The economy of bullets, sneaky homegrown tactics, a slight concession for solo players, and a robust multiplayer component with an array of maps? It's a no-brainer.

    Inversus packs a lot to love into a little package and it just works. The gameplay is smooth, the mechanics are solid and deep, and the soundtrack is perfectly tuned to the game. I admit that I didn’t catch the bug for Inversus when I first played, but I have it now and I like it.

    It may be built from pretty basic building blocks, but Inversus combines them into satisfying and strategic shapes. [Nov 2016, p.91]

    As impressive as it is to have a game of this quality from a single person, there’s not enough to really justify it. This is a saturated market and there’s already great shoot ‘em up games that have more content but cost less. It’s a few hours of solid fun you might occasionally revisit with friends but it’s not much more than that.

    A clever twin-stick shooter with a smart aesthetic and some nice risk versus reward gameplay. The online modes are dead on arrival though which is a shame as the single player game won’t keep you going for long.

    Inversus is a decent puzzler that’s much better with friends, but the enjoyment won’t last for long due to limited maps and modes.

The simplistic design offers a different set of skills that have been missing from many current-gen shooters. Though the experience can dwindle after a few hours through single-player experience, it gets revitalized by playing with some buddies for a few laughs. Expand
