This was one crazy game. I really don't even know what to say about it. I know that I gave the boss at least 400 hits! That sucker should be dead! I didn't like it how you only shoot the machine gun on one side. I could barely kill any enemies!

I will at least admit it has nice design. I thought the sounds and music were pretty good. The only problem was that it was hard to even understand. It was just these weird animals that I couldn't kill over and over. Well, it's interesting at least.

Very fun, but gets old rather quickly.

Failsafes are surprisingly enjoyable, despite being so easy to obtain. the only problem here is that black hole and bomb are really weak compared to the laser and the shock abilities.
Furthermore, you can quickly chain failsafes together, EXCEPT THE BLACK HOLE! which was INCREADIBLY annoying. i found myself just chaining together the laser failsafes and that worked really well.. untill i accidentally hit a black hole which broke the combo.
even moreso, the black hole seemed to do nothing at all except interrupt my failsafe chaining.
and then how the laser failsafe actually used up all my laser charge, which made the weapon on its own rather pointless. not that it's slow charge (charge: max lvl) or increadibly slow charge when you're about to use it were reason enough not to use it, but it also stops you from being able to use your other 2 weapons. Summary: don't bother with the laser. However, the lasers 'width' stat effects the laser failsafe. i found that kinda weird.
and on that, weapon upgrades have no information on what they do.

Despite these flaws, i found this game quite fun and enjoyable, and a good way to kill an hour or 2.
3/5

This game...

is fun, but the first boss took forever, even when using the failsafe often.

Wel...

Kind of boring for me. Although the game is well made good graphics and the stats give an extra point but still too boring for me

when i was like 13 i said this game sucked....

wellllll................ im almost 18 and its stilll a chunk of shit placed in a bag and lit on fire.................................
.... and a buzz kill peace.
