The full review is pretty short so just check that out.

I have no clue what is going on for this icon:

Story

No Story…

Gameplay

Given the icon gives you no indication as to what sort of game this is… it is a breakout type of clone. The twist is you can fire off bullets with your main ball as you move your ship on the bottom. Some stages will have enemies that have a lock on red fire ball that will kill you if you touch it and if your main ball hits below your ship you lose a life. The only other two unique things are some stages will have a spot that will absorb your bullets and some stages have effects that will go off randomly. These can be a small wall to bounce everything back in, every bullet disappears or everything stops in place. 

Personal Experience

Funny enough I enjoyed my time playing… typically I put a timer for 10 or 15 minutes to record gameplay. When my timer went off I stopped it and kept playing until I lost so the game is enjoyable. I didn’t think I would like it because of how it looked and the music is pretty great even though it seems to repeat a lot. 

Final Thoughts

I am kind of split since I think it is an interesting game and for $3, you can’t go wrong. It is really basic if anything which is my issue. It does what it wanted to do and does it well and there is nothing else like it on the Switch. So I would say if you like the gameplay go for it since it will keep you interested for a few hours. It is a solid game that does what it sets out to do and I enjoyed playing it myself.

UPDATE: 5/31/18

I would give this game a 5 out of 10!
