Makes with the working
- Clean bill of health minus showing each display resolution three times.
- Well, there is some tearing on the top of the screen but I’m looking into that.
Shiny / Sounds
- The graphics work but that’s about it.
- I would like to see this as a Shadow Warrior FPS.
- Baddies are generic as hell.
- Music is a bit of alright and really helps with the action.
- I like the designs they use for the lovecraft monster baddies. They’re very cute
- The sound track was alright. I found myself really not paying attention to it while I was playing the game
- I really liked the background music and how well it fits with the action on screen.
- Sure! Hear one enemy of a type die, you’ve heard them all.
- But the music is actually really well done.
- The graphics are kinda meh but it’s a top down shooter.
- For what it is, these graphics work.
- Nothing really to complain about here.
- It’s your standard top-down joint and you run backwards while shooting.
- Not suited for the Steam controlla.
- Hey! It’s a twin-stick which doesn’t do something stupid between the camera angle and pushing any given direction, Brigador!
- It’s remarkably similar to Assault Android Cactus in how well it works with both the controlla and mouse and keyboard.
- It’s also remarkably similar to Assault Android Cactus in every other way, but that’s not a bad thing!
- War Pigeon? #winning
- I like the chasing down mech parts mechanic.
- The RNG perks are interesting and you are forced to use them.
- You can pop-in, play a round, and pop-out.
- And that’s something you might need to do since each level is legit non-stop because FK YOU, that’s why!
- $14.99 is a little on the high side for a bullet hell.
- I should say $14.99 is a little on the high side for a bullet hell without online multiplayer.
- You know, as far as schmups go, this one isn’t too bad
- The missions are short and digestible, the maps are big and labyrinthine enough to give you a chance, especially with destructible environments and the teleport mechanic
- It’s basically Serious Sam the 2D encounter, but with less jokes and more olde timey references
- It has the pick up and play appeal to it.
- Do you want to sink an hour into it, you can.
- Do you just have 5 minutes to spare and want to bash through a level, you’ll probably have time for 2 levels.
- And the music! Music can play a big part in my enjoyment of a video game.
- I’ll always remember the first electrified rail running bit of Valley and what they did with the music to complement that.
- Tesla vs. Lovecraft, cynical namesake cash-grab I thought it would be, actually surprised me with how much fun I had playing it!
- I don’t really look forward to twin stick shooters and this one actually got me to have fun.
- I very much enjoyed my time with Tesla v. Lovecraft.
