    At a glance, Rolling Gunner may not look like much, but there’s a recent it’s earned a reputation as one of the better bullet hells of recent memory. It’s a finely-crafted danmaku with a unique hook in its multi-directional rolling gun, and doesn’t shy away from pushing that idea to its limits. In the process, it winds up picking apart the whole “vert vs hori” discussion, showcasing—and subverting—the abstract little nuances that distinguish the two.

    The package of Rolling Gunner + Over Power provides countless hours of entertainment through its immensely replayable and masterfully balanced gameplay, making it not just a must-play for fans of the shmup genre but also an excellent starting point for those who are looking to test the waters in the bullet hell genre for the first time, but have been wary of the challenge.

    Rolling Gunner Overpower is possibly the best shoot 'em up on PSN. If you want a game that looks insane but excels in terms of playability, this is the one.

    For shoot ’em up fans, Rolling Gunner + Overpower truly is a treat. Everything about it – from visuals to gameplay – is top-notch, ensuring that you have a big grin on your face from the moment you boot it up until you decide to turn it off. But the amount of difficulty options here, and the features introduced by the Overpower DLC, make this accessible to newcomers, too. We reckon this will be remembered as a classic in years to come.

    Rolling Gunner + Overpower is a really cool shmup. The game gives you a big spree from the start and lets you battle huge bosses with bullet hell guns. Unfortunately the game is really short and there is no co-op mode available. Still ,this is a game you must play, even if the price is a bit high.
