This game has qualities that are reminiscent of Wipeout. It runs great and keeps its frame-rate at a smooth 60 frames per second even when you’re going at high speeds and when things get hectic. The only thing that keeps this game from getting a full 10 out of 10 is that we find the flying sequences break the immersion unfortunately keeping the player from getting in that full focus. Overall the game provides a psychedelic feeling of pleasure similar to what Wipeout could induce when playing. Even with the issue of flying sequences being troublesome, this game can still give you that feeling and players will have a crazy time playing it.
Players will sure feel that impossible feeling of Dark Souls mixed with the funky racing of Wipeout. You will die many times in many ways before you get it right. The boosting feature keeps you in check by making you overheat and you will die after keeping it on for too long. The enemies of the game are simple barriers to lasers that will cut you up and they make it hard to avoid them at times. This game is easy to learn and hard to master but it’s a heck of a lot of fun.
