Satazius is basically another side scrolling shooter, like Lifeforce, Gradius, R-Type. However, it's not as fun as those games still are. The gameplay is alright, your ship starts really slow, but you can find some upgrades for your speed, which still doesn't help much. Your weapons can be upgraded as well, but they're changes that can barely be felt. The soundtrack, compared to other shooters like this is not good. Satazius is also easy in my opinion. You can save your Super Weapon for bosses, and kill them in just a few seconds. Get it if you're into the genre, and feel like you should get every single Side Scrolling shooter.

Satazius is an old school styled, side scrolling shooter. The game is very, very difficult and can be frustrating at times. The ship is reasonably big and to get through some gaps you need to be very precise or you will crash. If you can master the game it can be a nice little experience. You have a variety of primary and secondary weapons to choose from at the start. If you love side scrolling games then this might be for you. If you are new to the genre, I wouldn't recommend this game as it is very hard.
Arcade shooter of early 90smichalmichal | Aug. 10, 2013 | See all michalmichal's reviews »
Satazius is a space shooter, which could easily find its place in the arcades of early 90s. The graphics and sounds remind of that era, and so does the gameplay. You will be flying through some lengthy stages, often pretty difficult - not unlike in the old days. You will be given chances to upgrade and customize your ship and its weapons. We all know the drill, don't we? So although the game is enjoyable, we may have the feeling that we've already seen it all. And it is true, we've seen this kind of game so many time throughout the last 2 decades, that I would only recommend it to you if the genre is completely new to you or you are a fan of similar games.
