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!! FIGHTING HERDS!!! YUP YOU READ THAT RIGHT

What the heck was I doing when this game was being worked on and then released. Oh yeah I was probably working and also working on my own game ans animations. Either way this game looks interesting wow. I have not played it as yet to get a feel but this game seems like a fun little fighter to play with. It’s on sale now at humble bundle and steam for I believe $14 but I rather get it on my xbox this way I would play it without having to install it on my pc which is mostly for work not gaming.
Check out the trailer and also check out the video below that which shows some game play. You may want to follow the links back to their respective youtube channels to see more of their contents.
