We love games that are created with a simple idea, and that is to make the action packed gameplay into a simple, unique form.
Starific blends Space Invaders and Pong into a challenging and entertaining game, while offering a wide range of interesting bonuses and gameplay mechanics along the way.
To get started with Starific, from Alex Gierczyk, all you need to know is that you have to place the ball inside the pixelated sphere and move the paddles left and right on that sphere in order to keep the ball rolling.
The more you play, the higher the score you can get and when you reach specific score levels you will have the ability to win the game, which is really nice for sure.
The coolest thing for me when it comes to this game is that everything in it is procedurally generated. As you would expect, that is a game changer because each time you can find new challenges.
Only the inner portion of this sphere is generated, the outside remains the same all the time, and that on its own can be really fun and exciting all the time.
Power-ups are very cool in this game but aside from visuals, they also offer plenty of benefits. For example, you can use them all the time if you want to increase your score, however they can also remove some of the challenges on the board and make your game easier.
Finding the right power-ups can be quite the hassle, especially since the game does tend to get very hectic all the time, but it’s the gameplay experience that matters the most here.
Appearance and Layout:
The ability to customize everything is also a major plus in this title, and the more you play the more you will like this. It’s also interesting to see how many game modes are there, because alongside arcade you also have a strategic mode that might suit your needs.
You can collect a wide range of themes and use them in your game, but at the same time there are lots of other cool things for you to check out. It’s amazing how much attention was placed into the game and how great it is, but the most exciting thing is how everything manages to blend in together and offer a top-notch gaming experience.
Graphics are amazing in this game, even though sometimes it can be very hard to understand the things that happen on your screen. On top of that, the music is pretty good, although the focus is too much on dubstep which is a niche genre.
Overall, I feel that Starific – Endless Arcade Reactor manages to give you a very good, immersive and fun gameplay that’s really nice.
It’s an amazing game to play that will keep you happily playing for hours.
