Too colorful

This will sound like an outlandish complaint, but there's so much color on the screen, I have a hard time telling the power ups from the enemies. There's just so much going on, and everything keeps changing sizes, and then landmines show up... It gets hectic. I guess that's a good thing, but it just seems like as hectic as the action is, having to focus attention on picking up pixels turns into a distraction. Music was good.

good combination

great combiantion between shooter and dodging although the history at the beginnig dont take any part in the game
despite excellent


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This game is amazing! The graphics are great, the sound is great, the gameplay is great, and the controls are great. Although, the story in the beginning seemed to be a bit unnecessary. I also liked the bestiary. It's very addicting as well. It reminds me a lot of Space Invaders only with more freedom and I love Space Invaders.
I did notice that it's impossible to see the Fume's Attack B and the small Splitter doesn't drop any pixels.
Over all I think It's a great game. Keep up the good work.

Chaotic but nice

I give 8, the design and the story is so simple yet it's well played , theloop is nice, not annoying, the enemies are looking avesome and it'sa nice ide to get experience point from dopped pixels, I loved the medals also, I have to kept two points caused by some design elements which are not thought out, like shooting with the mouse and placing buttons on the screen, you can easily click on the help button or outside of the screen making the menu appearing, and there you can easily click on buttons by accident, I first quited from the game that way, so an are you sure to quit menu or making these options available by pressing buttons would have been better, also the great amount of pixells could easily distract you, and you can't make a difference between points and enemies making the screen looking chaotic.

I was thinking about giving 7, but over all it was made so vell I tought it deserves an 8, the narrator is a bit like GLaDOS. A bit unconfortable, but not really bothering.

The game is fine. Thank you for.

Thanks for the in-depth review. As far as clicking buttons during gameplay, we highly suggest holding down the mouse to fire, not clicking. Overall, glad you enjoyed the game, look out for our future works.
