OMG: Our Manic Game is a modern rendition of classic arcade shooters, featuring flashy graphics and fast paced gameplay.
This is a fun game if you’re looking to kill some time throughout your day. However, don’t expect it to keep you entertained for hours.
Gameplay: 3/5 (Weighted to be 2x more important)
The game is quite simple: avoid being hit by enemies while shooting them to level up your laser and increase your score. Controlling the game is done completely with your finger, which works well, but personally leaves me wanting an accelerometer control option. There aren’t any power-ups or other gameplay enhancing elements, which makes the game repetitive over time. Competing for the highest score is the goal.
The flashy animations and neon influenced graphics truly light up this game, separating it from other arcade shooters. Enemies explode in a lively burst of colors and bullets fly vividly towards you.
Itâ€™s just a shooter, no story to it. Therefore, the story isnâ€™t included in the overall score.
