This is a classic arcade side scrolling bullethell game. And not at all a bad one. This means your screen will be very busy. This means the core of the game play is looking for the tiniest gaps in endless walls of bullets to squeeze through. Most of all, this means you will die a lot and may get a bit frustrated. I think if the authors of the other reviews knew these things, they would have avoided this game all together. This game simply is not as bad as they would have you believe.

If you want to find out if this is a genre you enjoy, there is a flash game called bullet heaven you can try. The games differ stylistically, but the gameplay elements are very similar.

Don't be fooled! This game is a side scrolling shooter. A shooter that is rather boring. It looks pretty but that is all it really has going for it. I played it for about 10 minutes and got 8 achievements. One of which was for dying instantly.-- Really? Dying instantly is an achievement?
