Exactly what is says it is

Everyone tries to hype their own games, why wouldn’t they? This is the most honest and accurate descriptions I’ve seen. The game is a true throwback to the NES days and done well. I do want the ability to retry levels, however, but as this would effect gameplay I can see the purists saying’s a draw.
The only issue I have is that I’m right handed and the enemies generally come from the right. So I can either try it out on “expert mode” (using my left hand), or not always being able to see the enemies. I could get the controller that it supports, but I’m not going to. And I can’t imagine how he could fix it seeing as it’s a biological error in my part being right handed.
This definitely left handed creator made a real gem here, buy it, share it, play it

Great side scroll shoot em up

Reminds me of my favorite space shoot em ups from different computer platforms over the years. Love that for a small price there are no advertisements and no in game purchases. Game play is excellent, smooth response even when screen is filled with action. Normal and easy modes are both appreciated, it’s great to have the difficulty scalable for different levels of skill among my family members.


Retro heaven

This game is a perfect throwback to old school shoot em ups, with new twists, great levels, and great detailed retro artwork. This reminds me a lot of Dandara in terms of it being a high quality take on retro games. There’s an Easy mode and normal mode (which is really really challenging). I haven’t finished yet but I know I’m gonna want more levels by the end. Hopefully they make some more additions. Overall, highly recommend.
