Reviews for "SHMUP"


its a good game but how am i supposed to get through level 3 with that puny stuff in the shop? im giving this a 5 becaus it really needs to have more items early on

A decent effort, but...

Is it just me, or do the controls feel sluggish and unresponsive?

Also, the ship you control is too large. Look at the size of that ship; with the poor control above, you're going to get hit and killed quickly.

Then there's the enemies. The larger ones take too long to take down; I could overlook during the boss battle, since it's supposed to be a challenge, but with some of the stronger enemy fighters you face, it's either bypass them or get killed quickly.

In spite of these issues - which drag its score to the one I give - this game is one that is hard to put down.

Quite good game.

It was good.

The game was alright, but I've seen this type of concept before: Fly forward and shoot at incoming enemies while dodging bullets. I liked the upgrading portion of it, though. The only part that I didn't like was that I found level 3 to be more of a challenge than the first two levels. It just seemed like you upped the difficulty level for that particular level, so I couldn't get past it to finish the game. Overall, it was good.

Some advice...

Maybe you could make the bullets smaller or otherwise less visible, maybe even invisible, that would be a HUGE improvement, because I love to not see what hits me! What also bothers me is that the time you are invincible is a little bit too long, maybe you could even take it out?
