I couldn't even fit my whole review in the text bo

I wrote a 1400 word review, but it didn't fit, so I'll give the highlights.

Gameplay- Solid shoot 'em up action. I like how the levels are basically a bunch of templates with their own quirks, while the levels that use the same template are still different from each other. That said, it should have been clearer which objects were just the background and which ones were obstacles. More contrasting colors would have helped.

I like the mod system, it really opens up the possibility for experimentation. However, why couldn't we get them all earlier? Same with weapons? It would be easier to make the build we want if we could have that.

Story- You showed a great deal of intent here, a very impressive amount. The way it went form a sci-fi story to a fantasy one, the fact that each character was important, and the overall scale and feel all showed great attention to detail. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed.

Your story actually made me shed a tear. That has only happened once before in my entire life. :)

Audio- Sound effects were adequate, and the music was neither over-repetitive nor intruding.

Visual- I like the aesthetic, but couldn't the resolution have been larger?

I have been very impressed by this game. I hope you continue onto another project. If it's half as inspired as this one, then I'm sure it'll be great.

I've having a great time with the story in your game thus far. You clearly think of the game as being a conduit for your story, rather then a story as being a conduit for your game.

That said, I'm in agreement with the vast number of people that call this game repetitive. I've fought every boss twice without so much as a reskin (not that a reskin would be a permissible alternative).

Many other game designers create games they think will be fun and hamfist story into them to get people to invest themselves in the gameplay. It's not a good practice.

While I don't get the impression that your nearly as cynical as the aforementioned, the result is similar. You have a great story that you injected with gameplay in the hopes of acquiring personal investment from your audience.

If I'm being honest, as a game developer myself, I often suffer from a similar disadvantage. I only focus on the mechanical aspects of a game's engine. The 'important' stuff. But when it comes to something like level design, I tend to think, "Who cares? As long as the guy can do cool stuff, the levels are basically just a playground for him to do it in!"

And I know I'm wrong about that. I just suck at inspired level design. So I collaborate. And I think you should consider doing the same in future projects. Apply your totally apparent talents to the places where they most deserve to be.
