Any good?

This indie game reminded me about space invader, but it's a twin stick shooter where you can actually move around while you shoot.

 

The game has a story and an economy. You basically fly from space station to space station, doing missions, getting various resources you can trade and exchange on the "market". The economy is really broken and it doesn't take long for you to buy the best equipment for your ship and from there the game is a total joke in terms of difficulty. The story line is 40 quests, and each quest takes like 1-3 flights. The flights gets very repetitive with the same few patterns of enemies and the same few reused enemies. Often the patterns is just 30+ of the same enemy coming from the same direction, and with the best equipment one hit will often take it out.

 

The game also has some technical issues. Often after some extra strong enemy there is a long period of nothing happening, and I'm talking like it can be up to like 1-2 minutes of nothing, before the flight finally finish. Sometimes after a flight the game can just stop responding, and you'll have to quit the game and it won't have saved your last flight. Personally, I think it messed up the story quests for me. I followed a guide for shortest paths, but at some point it didn't make progress, and later I got a trophy for quest 30 and 32 at the same time. I think this might have been due to unresponsive after some flight, so it saved some progress or something. Navigating the menu was horrendous. It's not optimized for PS4 at all, definitely meant for mouse. Just navigating the buttons or menu elements was bad enough, but the normal "increase amount" to buy/sell was the worst I've ever seen. They got the good idea that you can change between how much you increase by each time you try to increase/decrease, like if it's going to be by 1/10/100/1000, but actually increasing and decreasing went way too fast. No way you would successfully do "1" increase if you wanted that. Also, just buying stuff meant you had to first be able to select the item you wanted to buy, which was horrible, and then it would go to your shopping cart, and that's when you can finally buy it. Later you also gotta equip it. The trophy guide is also way off when it says you gotta use all your money after each flight, because you will lose them after you next flight. This must have been patched, as it was an issue reported and fixed on steam too. Basically, the developer was so inept they set the money you earned to be your total money instead of adding the money you earned to the total. The end of a flight screen is just off. It will say you killed all enemies even when you haven't. It will say you've played for some completely random amount of time which makes no sense.

 

The most difficult thing in the game is getting to round 15 in the arcade mode, but the difficult part is actually just getting to like round 6 or 7 or so, where you should be able to have bought the best equipment. From there it's piss easy.

 

Is it worth getting this game? Not really, but it's a pretty cheap game and a not too difficult platinum, but it's way too repetitive. Not only do you need to do like 100 flights in the story mode, which is boring after like 15 flights, you still gotta grind down 100k enemy kills, which is another 50 flights. -_- The game could have been so much better, but felt like a prototype of a game that could have been pretty good.

don't even get me started on the menu ui, that made me rage so bad trying to get to 1 option would require many failed inputs to reach it.

 

it may also be worth noting that the devs seemed to pull a dick move by locking it to the acc it was bought on, as i attempted to play it on an alt acc b4 hand to see if it was any good but couldn't get past the main menu.

luckily at the end of the day this was one title i got with plus so at least i didn't spend anything on it.

You got it with plus? I paid some few bucks for it, like 3USD or something.
