This is a polished horizontal shooter that harkens back to the days of the arcades; complete with techno-rock music, muffled accented in-game voices announcing power-ups and the flashing "Insert Coin(s)" prompt and credit count on the main menu. The animation is fluid and the controls are simple and responsive. A wonderful timekilling fire-and-forget game!
An excellent pick-up-and-play game! It is rare to see such a solid debut, particularly for a full-fledged multiplayer game. The graphics, gameplay and sound are simple, yet crisp. The controls are intuitive and the game modes are standard fare so anyone can be well on their way without any leveling or experience grind. I look forward to seeing the implementation of new features, viewable statistics and UI improvements as the game progresses.
