An evolution of Blueshift. Redshift features over 250 weapons and shields and a huge campaign across the solar system.

Arrows - Move
A - Shoot
S - Shield
D - Detonate EMP
P - Pause
M - Toggle Sound

Note: A bug has been brought to my attention about only being able to select one character. If you finish the first level you can then go back and select any character. I've got a fix awaiting approval.

Great time-killer

This was definately fun! Lots of different LOOKING weapons, which was a nice touch. Loved the saw blades, altough Kickass Cascade was a bit too overpowered.
The variety of bosses was good, also nice work with the level backrounds.
A lot of different enemies with vast variety of weapons, different looking shields, explosions etc.
So all in all there was almost everything that needs to be in a game to make it a 10
BUT :

If you have shields and weapons, the shield are in one inventory window and the weapons in another. That one window for everything was a serious mess.

Cascade made killing way too easy (but on the other hand, isnt there always a superweapon in these kind of games?)

And the ending left a lot to hope for.

So I'll give 9.5 for this one. Don't miss this.

jamesness

the items are sorted by rarity 1 star at the bottom and 6 stars at the top so any items you would need are going to be on top and thats probably the best system for it also there is a waste duplacate botton so you dont need them to be beside eachother and if in the higher levels you only got rare items they wouldnt be rare now would they and recycling is pretty much just in there to give u something back for crap items since there is no money and once again u dont get good items all the time or you would get an amazing weapon on like the first level I.E your problems with this game are invalid gg sir

ROCKZOR!!

Very, very addicting game! I love for all its weapons and enemy variaty. But as Jamesness said, the weapon slots needs fixing.

Ps. I canĀ“t get enough of the boss battle music. Love this game the score, even tough the recycling was a bit anoying, is still a 10.

It was great!

When i started playing this game, my friend stood behind me telling me what a bad expirience he had with it. To be honest, if it wasn't made by you, I might have believed him. There are things that make this game great, and there are things that need to seriously be worked on, and I plan to name a few:
Pros
-Great weapon selection
-Enemy Variety
-Projectile Variety
-etc.
Cons
-Sorting of the weapon menu, It. Needs. A sorting system. Duplicate weapons weren't even next to each other! It was as if the game randomly picks a slot to place the weapon in, and if you want to equip it, you have to scroll through the entire 250 (as advertised) item list to find the damn thing! I see that it's sorted by "rarity", but that doesn't help at all when you want to find certain weapons. Rarity is way too broad of a type to be sorting items by, simply because there are only 6 rarities. so you have 40+ weapons per rarity, all randomly jumbled into the menu.
-The dropping system: It also needs work. There is no upper level limit for when terrible items can drop. Getting broken guns on the last level is absolutely preposterous, It's like going into the highest level dungeon in an RPG and finding a level 1 weapon that dropped off the final boss. It just doesn't make sense. Make good items drop from high levels, and it'd be a much better game.
-Recycling: It's purpose? To clean out your inventory, and give a random item with every 5 items recycled. Sure, it's a good system, but it still gave even worse weapons than what you actually recycled.

Not to make your cons look larger than your pros, but most of the pros are self explanitory. Overall I gave it an 8/10 and a 4/5 because it truely is a great gae, as soon as you find the weapon you want in the huge list and get to shooting the enemies.
Best weapon (that i found) was the Cascade Rocket Launcher, which is an overpoweredly fast shooting Quad Rocket Launcher (some other reviews said they got a triple cascade, well they can bite me because i found a quad.) and the best shield that i found was the XM-0001 reflect shield, which is 100 atp 100 duration reflecting shield (better than the spec-op reflect labelled by other reviews as the best, compare them.)
The game is awesome, you the creator are awesome, and my friend liked it after all. He just doesn't go far enough into games to see the true awesomeness.
