Review: Sine Mora lights up the PS Vita as one of the year's best downloadable games
3 December 2012
Excerpt: Another reviewer checked out Sine Mora for the PlayStation 3 a few days ago, and they came away with about the same level of awe that I did – Digital Reality, pairing up with Grasshopper Manufacture, managed to reinvigorate the long-standing "shmup" genre with a fresh twist of its own, adding the...

Excerpt: Over the past several years we’ve seen a number of great shoot ‘em up games. It’s obvious that the genre isn’t dead, and developers continue to turn out rewarding takes on this classic style of gameplay. That said, no 2D shooter in recent memory attempts to take as many risks as Sine Mora .
Excerpt: Sine Mora shakes up side-scrolling shooters with a stunning art style that wows when you first see it. It’s also got unique Hungarian voice acting complete with subtitles, and a time-based mechanic that changes things up a lot even though it might not seem like a huge deal in theory.

Sine Mora, a side-scrolling shooter for the masses (review)
31 May 2012
Conclusion: Mr. Reiker and his crew didn’t have to build and tune their game so ordinary players could give it a shot. But they did, and good on ‘em for going to the trouble.
Pros: Varied design Reiker, you get the feeling, has had a story percolating in his brain for a very long time. You also get the feeling that the man loves 2D shooters as much as life itself. Sine Mora is fun to play for gamers with any level of shooter experience (and more on that balancing act a litt...
Cons: The easy parts are very easy Sine Mora’s difficulty tuning is gentle on players who just want to enjoy the sights and follow the story. It’s actually pretty hard to die for good and all on the basic level – the game’s very generous with time-extension pickups, especially in what would otherwise b...
Summary: SINE MORA is indeed a visual feast, and yet the developers have not used that to cover up mediocre game play. Iinstead it’s a challenging, well thought out game. As quoted on their site "the shoot ’em up of yesterday with tomorrows production values" says it all really.
Summary: : Getting down to brass tacks, Sine Mora is easily one of the finest shooters I’ve played since the genre’s recent resurgence some years ago. The gameplay stays firm within its multiple decade old roots, and at the same time, offers a unique and fresh spin on the tried and true formula that grants...
