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

DAYUM!!! HOLLOW KNIGHT

Hollow knight, wow what an amazing game. I have not beaten this game but I have played a few hours of this game and am totally in awe of the visual, sound and game play. This game feels hella solid and beyond the fact that it’s a metroidvania style game the entire layout and game design just works. As usual enough talk check out the ign review and possibly check it out on steam where I purchased my copy or switch which it currently resides I am also waiting for a xbox version. The last metroidvania game I played was Ori which was also amazing.

***So update I bought the Xbox version and wow I LOVE IT MORE THAN THE STEAM VERSION. Well I love my xbox plus my computer is for work not play so I rather play on the xbox as that’s what I bought that system for anyway. Regardless a great game, the level design is downright amazing, the NPC are hilarious and interesting, the Bosses/sub bosses and the close enough to bosses are great. Can’t wait to see what teamcherry does next.
