Review: Neptunia Shooter (Steam)

Neptunia Shooter

Armed to the teeth, players begin as Neptune in an unworldly 8-bit space dimension ravaged by creatures who burst endless waves of bullets. Shoot, dodge, and defeat the boss in six unique bullet-hell worlds.

  • Controller support.
  • Can rebind keys.
  • Online Leaderboards.
  • Steam achievements.
  • Shmup gameplay.
  • Six worlds to play through.
  • One initial character then unlocks one after each world as you face them in a boss encounter.
  • Simple mechanic.
  • Catchy soundtrack.

  • No difficulty options.
  • No replayability outside of score chasing.

Summary

Neptunia Shooter is a straight forward Shmup. No thrills straight to the point. You won’t get bogged down with graphics settings and game options as it doesn’t have them, just you and your Nep take on 6 worlds and each time you beat a boss, you unlock that character. It looks and plays well I just want more options and maybe a few levels or modes. It’s very basic and veterans will clear the game in minutes I reckon. Anyway, its a nice little experience but seriously lacks longevity and variation.

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!
