Now bear with me, I'm not just here to tell you that I would rather have spent those ten minutes watching cats stick their heads through the ceiling, but to inform you of where and when I was really bored the most.
So I fly around in my spaceship, right, just cruisin'n' looking for spacebabes. All of a sudden I get jumped by other spaceships--that's what they look like, anyways. And while I'm fumbling to get a grip on things, because, yea, the controls are a mess, I get shot at by--wait... I don't know what they are.
And really, why the things they shoot at me are really pretty, did you make any effort to allow me to survive? Sure I can shoot back, but it's not like hitting is easy with those miserable controls. And so we sit there and shoot at each other, and once in a while I kill them but a lot more often, they kill me.
And so I wait for the fun to start, because all those pretty gold stars that others' gave you points towards your game having some, and well... it just never came.
I met the first miniboss, and yea he transformed. But until then it was all the same for at least a minute or whatnot. Did I hit him? Who knows. He didn't bleed or explode, and I really like blood and explosions. Did I make him transform? Haven't got a clue. Anyways, after shooting him, he turned into something else and shot some new type of bullets that I had to dodge just like all the others. I shot him some more, he transformed and I died a few times. All of a sudden, for no apparent reason, he died and HURRAY! I beat him... or something. Boring.
Some more shooting. Really, not worth talking about, and I get to the boss boss. He's a big guy and he's made up of rings of some sort. They spin around, and just like all the normal spaceships, bullets come out that you have to dodge. Exiting. And I dodge and shoot. He sits there, spins around, and shoots. I'm falling asleep just writing about it. So he spun around for a minute or two, and then he had some new type of bullets. These I could shoot. FINALLY some diversity. But too late. I was bored and couldn't deal with the pace of things.
Again. Beautiful. But who cares when it bores people to death and makes them post things like this.
GFX 6/6 - Attention to detail, pleasing lights and colors. GMP 2/6 - Nearly nonexistent. Cheesy opponents and oddly implemented features. SND 4/6 - Music was above average, matched the theme(?) somewhat. No sounds. INV 2/6 - Nice ideas (transforming minibosses, circle-thing bosses). Not integrated effectively. THM 1/6 - Space? Water? What are those chemistry formulas? CNT 2/6 - Not meant for humans. ALL 3/6 - Good looking game that _might_ make it to the top. _Might_.
