I just got the game in the mail. Played for a couple of hours.

The game is fine.

Im wondering, would game sites have jumped the gun and got all ridiculous treating the preview code like a review if this was any other game?

Like the 1up feature which went through things that needed to be fixed before it was released.

The games not great, but its fine.

Im starting to wonder that with the onslaught of awesome games in the last few years whether we are all getting a little spoilt.

WARNING A GIANT TOY IS APPROACHING!

I like the way you can tilt the ship. The graphics and colours are decent. The enemies are interesting enough considering they are blocks. The game does a good job coming at you with different enemies and projectiles, it keeps it entertaining and fast paced.

I found it difficult to get under ships quick enough to catch them, which it seems becomes pretty important to surviving past the first level.

I sure wouldnt mind if the difficulty didnt scale up so much after the first level. But then again, mabe there is only 5 levels?

"If any of you guys are wondering how Giant Bomb's traffic is after launch, but are to lazy to search it, here it is

Giant Bomb is becoming more popular =D
Its going up and up, slowly, but for being out for 1 month, this is great

Check It out: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details/giantbomb.com

To anyone that thinks its failing, or gonna fail, fuck you.

What do you think? Personally i think it will continue going up slowly, GB > Everything Else (exc porn)"

  • If you're going to pick an emulated game, make it one of these: NES, SNES, GBA, Genesis/Megadrive.  The emulators for anything above that could be too taxing for people's systems.
I assume anything less than this will be ok?

such as Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari etc.

if so yes.

I think this game probably scales down alright.
