"Far down the road in Human history, an abnormality in space-time suddently appeared on one of Saturn's moon : Encelade.
Spaceships of an unknown origin take the human fleet by surprise. A real genocide.
Earth also seems to be overwhelmed by the assault and only a small group, scouting near Encelade manageto avoid the attack. By approching the icy surface of the moon there is still one last hope of a counter attack againt the ennemy from another world."
Enceladus is a shoot'em up inspired by the Playstation & Saturn era infused with mecanical gameplay and modern artistic style.
Easy to handle, skill will be needed in order to beat the 7 levels available.
The player takes control of « Frost », a spaceship capable of firing energy blast or to channel a very powerful laser. He also has the ability to trigger a powerful explosion, ideal to get yourself out of trouble.
The number one asset of « Frost » is his ability to teleport. By a simple push of a button, it is possible to create a ghost of Frost while still defending yourself. By letting go of that same button « Frost » teleports to the ghost's location.
That technology allows you to move faster, to dodge overwhelming shots but also to gain acces to unaccessable zones.
Teleportation needs practice, but once mastered « Frost » becomes so much harder to destroy.
Enceladus is a retro-styled shootemup presented from the vertical perspective. The game is quite typical for the genre, you fly and shoot avoiding the barrage of bullets flying your way. Pretty usual stuff so far but there is a twist to that. The ship has the ability to warp and this helps to prevent otherwise unavoidable deaths. Graphically, it is a properly made game, everything looks very slick, it is a bit modern and retro at the same time. I like it more than what I saw in new Raiden recently. When it comes to music, it is ok, tracks fits into a mood of the game. Overall, really fun title.
Enceladus is a great and fun arcade shoot'em up and with great controls and pixelated old style visuals is a great option for hardcore players and the genre fans! the gameplay is really engaging and fun with smooth controls and upgrades and useful abilities to your spaceship in combat with waves of enemies, the level design is really good and well done, and boss fights also are challenging and it's like a true old school arcade shoot'em up! If you are an arcade fan and would like to enjoy a great arcade game with many challenging levels, Enceladus is recommended for you and be sure it will be one of your favorite ones!
