  • Summary: This is a fun, unique little game. It controls like Asteroids and your goal is rescuing civilians, like Choplifter, giving it an old school charm, but its physics and puzzles also make it feel modern. You control your ship's movement with WASD and your aiming with the mouse. Both are completely independent, so you can move one way and shoot the other, for example.

  • Summary: Combining physics and cavern flight elements into one game, this game does not disappoint. I've been very impressed with Pixeljunk's focus on game play as they seem to get it perfect in both this game and Monsters, always making it fun and enjoyable. I have not finished this game yet, but it is progressing nicely so far.

  • Summary: PixelJunk Shooter is the first PixelJunk game I've ever really played. I've played the demos of Eden, Monsters, and Shooter all previously, and I've even bought all of them since then (plus Racers 2nd Lap and Eden on PC), but with backlogs what they are these days Shooter is the first one I've actually gotten around to playing. I say that to really say while I'm interested in the PixelJunk series, I didn't go into this as a pre-existing fan.

  • Summary: This game is really fun. Sort of like the "Kirby" games, it is easy - if you want to beat it, you surely will. I found it was very short too - cleared it in under a couple days. So why the high score? The core mechanics feel really good to interact with. The visuals are crisp, distinct and lively. The music by High Frequency Bandwidth is awesome. Also, even after you blast through it, there's the challenge of finding all the hidden diamonds and climbing the leaderboards.

  • Summary: Highly overrated game. They have some nice ideas with the manipulation of elements, but the execution is mediocre at best...the so called "puzzles" are extremely rudimentary and easy. No challege. The solution to each "scene" is so obvious it's not even enjoyable. Just mindlessly blasting through areas to get to the miners...not that good. If I don't even need to think to get through your game, you did not try hard enough.

  • Summary: What can I say about Pixel Junk Shooter? First and foremost it!s a game that I've been dreaming for years! It's a game that has been made by game enthusiasts to game enthusiasts. I enjoyed every minutes, every seconds of this game. It made me feel the excite mend that I was feeling when I first played legendary game Another World years ago. Pure fun. Pure addictive. Plus state of art genius levels and bosses designs. You can't get one which is better than this!

  • Summary: So I just recently picked up and finished Pixeljunk Shooter and I had to say that I was thoroughly impressed. I first got hooked onto the Pixeljunk series with Eden and decided to give this one a go soon thereafter and am glad I did. This one, while not exactly similar to the former, is quite more enjoyable and creates some very interesting and thought-provoking scenarios for the player to tackle.

  • Summary: Vorwort Mit PixelJunk Shooter schickt das Entwicklerstudio Q-Games den nun mittlerweile vierten reinrassigen Online-Titel ins Playstation Network. Wieso dieser PixelJunk-Teil ausgerechnet den einfallslosen Beinamen "Shooter" erhielt, wissen wahrscheinlich nur die Entwickler selbst. Denn bei diesem Spiel sind Schießeinlagen eine Seltenheit, Knobelei und Geschicklichkeit stehen nämlich an erster Stelle.
