END AUTOMATED TEXT. THREAD CREATOR INFORMATION BELOW.
This game is on sale on the eShop, $4.99 currently. I decided to check it out.
It's pretty fun. You glide around preset tracks filling them in, while avoiding enemies. It has a nice style, good music and sems to have a lot of content. It's also quite difficult (at zone 4 right now). I wish you could zoom out a bit more, because one wrong move and you have to restart the stage. Also, the online leaderboards don't work all the time. Actually,they've only worked once. Hm.
I recommend the game, if you've got 5 bucks to burn check it out.
I've had my eye on this for a short while, and I've enjoyed what (little) I had played of the WiiWare version. I guess I have $5 to burn. Although I fear this is one of those games that I'll download then never play. I do that a lot with digital titles, unfortunately.
I bought this one for $5 last week along with Order Up!! It is pretty fun but I would recommend it only for gamer types (like those on this forum) because of a few things:
1. It does have a story but the focus is really on the arcade aspect of high score chasing and online leaderboards. 2. The aforementioned zoom problem is an unfortunate design decision that makes the game a lot less accessible. 3. Vektor can only be hit once in each level. There is no shield upgrade nor any temporary invicibility power up. Having these would make it lot more accessible to a broader audience. Perhaps the developers could have included a "casual" mode that gives the player 3 hits or a temporary shield but would not let a player gain medals and high scores if using them.
I am finding it fun though and would recommend it as a game to be played in short bursts. I am currently on zone 5.
Hmm, this makes me feel better about spending $5 on the 3DS version.
Unless...wait, what are other top WiiWare games you've played?
Mega Man 9 and 10, Fluidity, the Art Style series, the games from Shin'en (Art of Balance, Jett Rocket, FAST: Racing League), World of Goo, the Bit. Trip series, Cave Story and Toki Tori. I've also heard great things about La-Mulana, so I'll be downloading that soon.
