Project Starship X Review

In Space, No One Can Hear You Start Over



HIGH Striking visuals and a great sense of humor. 

LOW Once again, I am asking why every game I play now is so hard. 

WTF Yeah, there’s too much going on. 



Ginga Force Review

Too Cute by Half



HIGH Flashes of brilliant design. Solid arcade-style training modes.

LOW Weapons are frustratingly underpowered. Progression is too grindy.

WTF Why can’t I preview the items I’m buying for my ship?



Shoot 1UP DX Review

Still Great Years Later

HIGH Obtaining 30 ships and then the ghost for twice the firepower!

LOW That ghost always runs out right before a boss battle.

WTF Well hello there, floating half-of-a-lady-robot boss…


Habroxia 2 Review

‌Memories Of An Era Long-Gone

HIGH A well-designed futuristic armory.

LOW: Arcade shoot-’em-ups used to be more challenging, didn’t they?

WTF: No support for mouse & keyboard on PC?


Black Bird Review

Feathery Fantastic

HIGH Incredibly smart, incredibly tight design.

LOW The final boss bullet hell is a bit much.

WTF I’m still a little hazy on the story’s finer points.
