Makes with the working


  • I want to ding it a chair for not having a res setting but I can’t.
  • If it had one and it didn’t work that would be fair.



  • Whar video settings?


Shiny / Sounds


  • This game loses two chairs for not having a res setting.
  • It just stretches the game to 3840×2160 resulting in some weapons grade fugly.
  • This could have been sorted /w a FK load of AA but that would require some sort of graphic settings menu.
  • If I bounce my ball back and take a few “at the end of the days” it looks alright.
  • Picking out individuals object from the colour soup is difficult. Even when you do there’s nothing to mail-bomb home about.
  • Shapes, spinning on shite …the game
  • Did you just WUB at me, Brad? YES YOU DID!


  • They’re geometric shapes.    oooooooo
  • I mean, you don’t buy this sort of game for the aesthetic value
  • The soundtrack is just kind of there.   Was too busy listening to darkthrone


  • Don’t mind the soundtrack too much, it fits the overall aesthetic.
  • Doesn’t get 4 chairs because, again, whar video options Asspyre?




  • I was going to give this two but after learning the filthy peasant controls ..it works.  
  • I’m dinging it a chair since the only realistic way to play this critter is /w dual sticks.
  • Go ahead, try it /w your keyboard organ …and build a log cabin


  • Xbox controller works great
  • You guys can keep whinging about the keyboard controls
    • I bet you bring nerf guns to paintball too


  • PS2 Dual Shock works, Nvidia Controlla doesn’t
  • Can’t rebind the Super and Smart bomb on the keyboard to control and NumPad 0.
    • “But Pedro, why aren’t you playing a twin stick shooter with a twin stick controller?”
      • Because fuck you, that’s why! Also, I’m on a PC not a console.
      • If the game is available for PC, I expect it to work with the “standard” PC inputs.




  • It’s challenging and seeing your friends scores kept me coming back.
  • Then you eventually give up and claim they are cheating.
  • Now ass-pyre said an upcoming patch would enable the res options.
  • “Basically video options were pulled at the last minute for some weird tech reasons. Not huge for an arcade shooter like this, but still irksome and they are going back in with the patch.” -Blair
  • That was on Dec 2’nd.
  • And in full disclosure they sent us the keys.
  • While I find the game challenging, I also find it hella overpriced.
  • Multiplayer is, at best, FK all confusing.
  • You can get a lot more game for your wet stinky ..and you should.
  • Pick this up when it goes 50%


  • It’s a challenging twin stick shooter.
  • I haven’t played any of the other geometry wars games, but this one was fun
  • The competing score hovering over your head is annoying because I end up paying more attention to that than where the enemies are
  • Multiplayer is decently fun as well


  • This game is a perfect continuation of the Geometry wars series.
  • Which is why I don’t like it!
    • As far as twin stick shooters go, I liked Assault Android Cactus because of the character and boss designs.
    • There is no character design in this game. It’s just shapes blowing each other up.
  • I won’t give it one chair, because I can recognize that it is an objectively good twin-stick shooter.
    • But I suck at twin stick shooters and that means I usually don’t have a lot of fun with them.
