A Tale of Petty Revenge

In this shmup, autoscrolling shooter and jump-n-shoot arcade game you star as busty space heroin Serena S. You get trolled on Spacebook by a guy named the ‘Space Prince’ and so you’re off to visit his planet to teach him a lesson.

Follow Serena through 6 gaudy, colorful designed levels full of alien plants, snow beasts dragons, snakes and enemy soldiers.

The soundtrack by Jake ‘Virt’ Kaufman fits perfectly into this homage to the arcade titles of the late 80s and early 90s. Have a listen!

Conclusion

Every retro gamer will love the awesome colorful artwork, the fantastic leveldesign and the over-the-top characters. If you ever played arcade titles like Phantis, Jill of the Jungle or Astro Marine Corps, you know where the roots of this retro game lie.

But, there is a bitter pill for us to swallow: the price of $9.99! It’s way to high for a game you finish in about one hour. Absolute top titles like The Cave or Bombsquad only cost half the price and they offer countless hours of gameplay.

I’m afraid the pricing will keep many OUYAns from buying the full game. This would be a great pity because the game is a hell lot of fun for retro fans.
