Reminds me of Resassembly.

Totally unrelated: How do we block games or at least mark them as undesired for our library?


EDIT: I meant for games not bought yet.

You can do two things.
1)Assign the tags, then use filter tags.
OR
2) click at the small arrow of game in the general view of collection of games and choose hide game.

Returning to subject. Very good game and it would be my 1st day buy if I had money on the account.
Bullet hell with a rougelike sauce and also there are groups of enemies who all attack you in different way.
While I despise the term roguelite, I despise it slightly less than using the roguelike tag for games that have about as much or less in common with rogue as rogue has in common with Doom. Can gog just get a roguelite tag and finally get those non-rogue-like games out of the roguelike category? Or just drop the tag entirely, since it's mostly meaningless. Last time I counted, over 1/3 with the tag were obviously not roguelikes, and 1/3 were probably not roguelikes (but need more research to be sure). So, most of the games with the tag shouldn't (or probably shouldn't) have the tag.

Looking at the roguelike-tagged list sorted by date added, it looks like the last 7 releases (not counting DLCs or reissues) are not roguelikes. I include Space Robinson, since it's at the top of the list, even though I don't remember it being released recently.

I guess I really should just stop complaining about this, since it will never get fixed.

Looks like an interesting space shooter.

Gotta push roguelite for that exact reason.
At this point I think it's too late to differentiate between 'like' and 'lite', most people don't know the difference, and don't care enough to use it properly once they know. Like how to pronounce gif, which to be honest I don't care which one is right anymore.
Cool name and it looks like a game I would love and that you can get a lot of mileage out of.
