Macworld's Game Room has posted another review, this time covering Kaijin, a retro shooter from Phelios. Following the tried and true gameplay of the many top down 2D shooters which came before, Kaijin offers players the chance to blast a variety of super evolved insects and ocean dwellers on Planet Terria. For its well executed and challenging rendition of the popular formula Kaijin scored 4 out of 5 mice from The Game Room.
From the review:
Kaijin—itself a variation on the Japanese word for “monster”—is very heavy in Eastern influence beyond just core gameplay. On top of its three difficulty levels, the game features three gameplay variants, “The Way of the Eagle,” “The Way of the Tiger,” and “The Way of the Dragon.”The entire review can be read at the site listed below.
Macworld Game Room: Kaijin Review
“The Way of the Tiger” is classic Galaga-style play: While you’re restricted from moving up and down on the screen, you can move left and right to dodge enemy bullets. You’ll also fight against three bosses.
“The Way of the Eagle” gives you full mobility up, down, left and right through 30 levels of play.
“The Way of the Dragon” is an amped-up action mode for people who have gotten bored of the other two Ways. You’ll burn through three levels of hyperactivity.
