It is a good "Shmup". It's a mix between Defender and Gradius, with modern graphics and good music. Also great action and sfx, and supports gamepads.
Thanks, I also got this feeling after watching the Desura video!
(wasn't remembering Defender, but now I got it... ;p)
The impression I get from the videos is that it's not forced scrolling like most shmups
, you can face different directions and progress through the levels yourself (instead of the camera moving you along).
I think it's the Defender comparison that Azrael360 said... ;p
Looks nice but I can't buy now, maybe next time!..
