I'm in the mood for another old school shooter, and this one has been getting decent press and looks like a blast to play.

I'd really like to, but all of my time is being spent on World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, Halo 2, and the games for my new Cube (Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart and Zelda).  I have way too much on my plate to pick up another game right now!  I'm sure I will grab it sooner or later, though, at the very least just to support their independent development.

I picked it up for the 'cube, and it is a lot of fun!  A little too manic at times (hard to tell what to do in some of the boss battles, for example), but no less fun for that.  It has a great style and looks much more polished than a game that started as flash animation should.  Definitely worth $20, but I'm not sure about $30.  It's a light game.

I got it and I can say that this game is the new king of 2d old school gaming on the Cube. I think it's worth every penny at 30 bucks, it's addictive, it looks good, plays fast and everything drips style and creativity. It's easily one of the top five side scrollers ever.

Sah-weeeet!  Glad to hear you're enjoying it Tebunker.  It will still have to wait until after the holidays for me, though.
