Summary

Ubermosh Omega is a fast-paced arena shooter with twin-stick controls. It took me a while to peel away the layers of this game and learn what I needed to do and what I could do. Six characters who all play differently with unique attacks can all have 2 abilities equipped. Once I got this down I got on so much better and had such a blast with it. Sure it has a few things that bugged me or stopped my enjoyment but the sheer speed and spectacle of it all outweigh it. Yeah, you won’t play it for hours on end but you will keep coming back for more.

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!
