Pretty good despite visual flaws and difficulty inconsistencies. Lovely visuals, great music.

Huge Enemy is definitely not a game to be passed up. In spite of its past reviews on Steam regarding the game, which a lot of I agree with, this game at least deserves some attention. It is good. It's maybe not great, or fantastic, but it's good. The visuals are definitely the best thing about this game and the visuals are what you're paying for.
TL;DR This game is a good, avoid 'em all, R-type clone, side scrolling sci fi game. It's cheap, get it if you're interested, and write a review to at least give it a little boost.
- It functions as a game.
- Intro and splashscreen is cool af.
- Game knows how to get you hyped and anxious at the same time.
- Has an array of different weapons to keep things fresh.
- Artwork is my jam, it looks great and feels great as you're playing it.
- All music and sound effects fit, and do their purpose.
- The upgrade system kinda baffles me, I maybe misread or didn't see where it told me what to do, so I went a few levels without upgrading a thing.
- Some audio effects were unbalanced in volume, some were really quiet, then the voiceover would boom in. Likewise with ingame, I'd feel as if my guns were so much quieter than the enemies.
- Not so much a con, but this game used to sit at £23.99 on Steam back in 2018, so a lot of disgruntled reviews on Steam are swade by that thicc price. Glad its down to £3.99, which is a lot more reasonable.
- Also not so much a con, but the game is pretty difficult, or at least for me who is pretty bad at these types of games, found even the first level (not the tutorial) quite challenging. I couldn't really get a hold of the default controls of switching guns and also switching which way I'm firing.
- And the last con is kind of a mish mash, the game is a bullet hell, and not, sometimes the screen is too busy, sometimes there's hardly anything, sometimes bosses are hard, sometimes they're not, sometimes a level will feel like it lasts seconds, some will feel like they last forever. The game seems to lack consistency, and it's alright honestly, but it's still what makes it a little bit of a slog to get through.
There's also some stuff with graphical errors, nothing gamebreaking (or at least from what I found). That and the guns didn't turn to face the way I was aiming, which I only noticed until after I'd read a review that was a little too upset about that.
Honestly, the game is pretty good despite its flaws, and really, there's nothing stopping you from trying it out to see...
