  • Summary: Really big sky is just another twin stick shooter, with an awful sense of humour, and more to the point, it doesn't work. The PC controls made for it don't work, and it appears to have a frame-lock, much like Coniclysm, and the drilling mechanic is broken. I really don't recommend this game.

  • Summary: This game is so COLORFUL! Color and particles flying around a tons of enemies and pure awesomeness! If you have an xbox 360 controller you can play this game with it!

  • Summary: It's alright. Really underwhelming. I didn't find it as addicting as Geometry Wars. The music is really cool, but like others have said, the game is vague. It's hard to know what things do, and the progression system of powering up your ship feels kind of pointless. I never really started to feel badass at any point, but I suppose that isn't the purpose? I don't know. It's a cool arcade game, but it failed to keep me coming back for more. It's too bad.

  • Summary: Really Big Sky is a bad game. End of line. Tutorial is ridicolous ("use WASD to move and click to shoot"... and then it ends, yeah, very useful) and you're thrown in the middle of a very bad-designed environment with nothing to do but being mocked by the "Video settings" page which doesn't allow you to properly enter fullscreen for 1920x1080 (in 2013? Really?). What about the upgrade system for the ship? There's a list of... things, and you can allocate...

  • Summary: Really Big Sky is a side-scrolling space shooter/bullet hell game where you go through procedurally-generated levels, blasting enemies and upgrading your ship for the next time you play. It seems like this game has a lot of strategic depth to it, but I'm having a hard time telling for sure because the game doesn't tell you anything. The tutorial is fine for getting the basic controls, but the game is terrible at describing anything else.

  • Summary: What great surprise. The graphics and music are what you expect after seeing the trailer. The levels are wonderfully random. I can't stop playing it. I gave it a 9 because Co-op is local only. I like local Co-op (I think it should be included more in PC versions of games), but most of my friends are NOT local.

  • Summary: Highly satisfying - provided your reflexes are sharp! If you like HARD twin-sticks shooters and can handle a lot of visual distraction, Really big sky delivers the goods. While the game doesn't have a lot of different baddies and bosses, it mixes and matches them randomly so that every game is different and always challenging.

  • Summary: I'll try to sum this up using six words: Imaginative, colourful, chaotic, hard, mesmeric & addictive, though this is a game that is impossible to adequately describe using words alone. Honestly, if you are a fan of the shoot-'em-up genre you really owe it to yourself to give this a try rather than sit here reading this.

  • Summary: I still haven't found an appeal for strobe light shooters. I'm essentially being blinded while trying to concentrate on shooting enemies. It's just painful on my eyes and causes headaches after about 10 minutes. Great form of torture, but not so great form of game.

  • Summary: This was a pleasant surprise! I would have scored it higher but im bound by reality to keep it honest and no indie game ever scores a 10 on graphics, another slight flaw is that it does get a little repetitive. That being said the gameplay itself is effing awesome! Plenty of modes to choose from once you unlock them, upgrading your ship feels like it actually has a point, and the game is challenging!
