Beats the hell out of Geometry Wars

I had a really good time playing this game. Really easy to pick up. I didn't grasp right away that the twinkling "stars" in the (perceived) background were actually the loot I needed to pick up in order to gain EXP, but that's my own damn fault for not reading the instructions.

I'm one of those people who has to collect everything, so I automatically went for a Pixel/Magnet upgrade combination, until I found out that it makes it more difficult to get certain trophies.

I didn't care much for the Score boost upgrade, it seemed like it was really only worth getting for the 1 million point trophy, but I forget sometimes that many people are interested in leaderboards and stuff, so the score still ostensibly has some value.

One thing I wish I could have seen (not considering it a flaw necessarily, just a personal preference) is a way to indicate that the edge of the screen is approaching, aside from having the scrolling stop. Or maybe instead having a marker of some sort near the center. Once you really get in deep, you're whipping around so fast and changing direction a lot, and suddenly you've painted yourself into a corner. With a parallax background (which looks awesome), the added depth perception makes it harder to track your position in 2D space. You can kinda get by if you check the closest layer of the background, but it's easy to lose track when the enemies really come at you.

Still, these gripes I have are really minor, and the game is rad overall.

Is there a problem with medals being awarded? I finally got double stars in my menu but I'm still missing a couple NG medals afterward.

I had all the in-game trophies except Chain1000 and Vessel King, and then the All-Gold and All-Plat trophies. I managed to get the Chain1000 first, then built up and died, and in my next playthrough I got the Vessel King trophy, which then cascaded with AllGold, AllPlatinum, and Master trophies. I dunno if this messed things up because it's logical that I'd have the Vessel King first (and therefore get all the gold before I got Chain1000 etc), but either way, I have all the trophies in-game but I'm still missing the medals that require Chain1000 or Vessel King, as the sole objective or as a prerequisite.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

cool game

there's no point in saves the purpose of the game is to see how far you can get without saving so in my opinion the game has everything it needs

Fantastic game!

As the title may suggest, this review is going into a good direction.

The game is surprisingly addictive and makes me keep playing over and over again. Killing the enemies is really fun and the upgrades are also very helpful and balanced in a good way. I especially like the pixels that each killed enemy drops upon dying and running around collecting those. It feels great seeing that you're close to getting killed and making that last attempt to either find a shield, machine gun, health or the last remaining pixels needed to complete the level. The music itself is also very good and fits really well with this type of action-survival game.

Then there's also the medals, trophies and leaderboard. Doing the tasks to get these achievments adds quite a lot to the fun factor. There's nothing like getting that little pop-up telling you that you've succeded. The medals are also a very good touch and shows that time & care has been put into the game. Just like the trophies it was fun completing the different objectives and getting the certificate of your skills to your gamertag for everyone to see.

The best thing however is easily the leaderboard. It's surprising how something so siimple can add so much value to a game. It really triggers you to do better and better every time so that you can see your own name up there on the top, knowing that no one has managed to do better.
