  • Summary: Gatling Gears isn't a terrible shooter, but it also lacks any ambition. As dual-stick shooters go, this is another lazy attempt at the genre. The boring weapons and mediocre level designs won't win this game any awards, but they also won't ruin an otherwise unspectacular action game!

  • Conclusion: Max lives with his niece in peace. However, peace doesn't last and Max has to use his mech once again, but this time to fight back against the Empire. The story is told through dialogue, all text, between Max and his niece Zoe and all during conversations that take place during gameplay.

  • Summary: I'm told that Gatling Gears is a sequel, but you wouldn't know it by looking.  It took me several hours to catch on that this dual-stick shooter is the follow-up to Greed Corp, a game I own and put a lot of time into.

  • Conclusion: It's hard not to like Gatling Gears. The pains of a worn genre and derivative mechanics are eased by a bright, inviting aesthetic and supported by an impressive attention to detail.

  • Excerpt: Top-down shooters are known for their mayhem. There are bullets flying everywhere. There are canisters or tanks or some other objects that meekly surrender to your constant stream of bullets and offer some sort of health or power-up.
