DAYUM!!! Well #shera surprised me #netflix binged

So I recently binged the latest She-ra by Dreamworks and I have to say wow what a good damn job they did. It had humor but not an insane amount, it had character building, it had decent writing, the character designs were quite modern and fitting I was not displeased one bit. The animation did not look stiff it was very fluid. As an animator and character designer I was quite proud of what they accomplished. Naturally I am very critical and many seem to dislike that nature and I get most times get dubbed an ass or entitled etc but for this series I really had nothing to say. Dreamworks really went in on this and did not treat the audience like buffoons and I felt this series can inspire young people due to the various characters one being Glitter who was not the a-typical character design which I have to give them a thumbs up on. The humor reminds me of “Avatar The Last Airbender”. I won’t give too much away but check it out you will love it like I did. One thing I will say when the horse makes a reintroduction later in the series you will laugh. #shera

DAYUM!!! Celestial Raid

Celestial Raid is an interesting name for a game considering that the setting is in space. Well that is the name of this indie Shoot’em up #SHMUP game. I briefly played this game after seeing it on Shaun Spalding’s video featurimg some indie games. I have included the video link below. The reason why this game connected was due to the fact that I was also working on a shoot’em up game.

After my play session, I recalled testers of my own game writing extensive writeups stating my game was hard, I wanted to chop that person in the throat as they have yet to see hard but they did explain why it was difficult. So allow me to jump right in and explain this game. Celestial Raid starts the action not holding any hands, matter of fact you are tossed head first into the mayhem, it’s balls and cats to the wall action. The visuals and sound felt nostalgic, you could see a unique love of old school shoot em up as it echoed a modern take on that genre. For a one person production this was done quite well I have to give the creator praise. The creator goes by the acronym EBWC. The bullet hell mayhem was well done but ‘ohh my god’ the mobile version being the version I tested was difficult. Note the game is a one finger game, glide or swipe to move , the shooting is auto. There were points where there was just too much bullets and I was simply overwhelmed, but I did enjoy it note you only have 3 lives so death is forever knocking. At the end of the day it’s worth playing and enjoying. Great job EBWC. That ends my quick and to the point review.

Give EBWC some love here on their portal, I bought the game as I love supporting indie developer being a developer myself EBWC
