Gynoug is a Shmup that plays well but feels predictable, I never felt surprised or wowed. It wad just safe with a small pool of weapons and enemies,the boss models and locations are a stand out mind I can’t deny that. I would say this is a game for people that want a streamlined less gimmicky Shmup or fans of the name. For me personally I found it kind and f plain and it never tried to outdo itself.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
