Cosmophony is a musical shooter designed for demanding gamers seeking an original and intense gaming experience. You must control the heart of a fallen goddess within a dying universe in order to fulfill her destiny. Your goal is to progress through a series of levels designed to be played to an exhilarating, 100% drum and bass soundtrack by DJ Salaryman (DnB Arena, RAM records).

In Summary, The game is actually really good fun. I mean if your version of fun is getting your ass kicked, constantly swearing at the screen and loving the art of the retry philosophy. For here you have a game that starts off nice and slow, easy to learn and gain momentum. Five minutes later you are swearing at anything and everything on screen. You start fluffing shots or hitting walls. The game is nails ut you love it for it. If you want a challenge then your in luck! This game is no good to non shooter fans or average players, This is for the hardcore sadistic shooter fans!

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!
