You will enjoy it, your eyes will not.


Really big sky is a fast paced arcade shooter. It throws you into action from the very beginning, with minimal explanations over anything, so don't get disappointed if at first you find yourself dying before starting to grasp what is happening around you. Dying is an important part of this game: there are no levels to be completed, only to be delved into until your ship is wrecked, at which point you upgrade it a bit and start again. After some trial and error, you start to figure things out and go on an endless challenge against yourself trying to move further and further into the world. The game's graphics are very colorful and can even be "trippy" at times, changing colors very fast. There is also a variety of modes to be unlocked including a "retro 80's" mode, which adapts the game's graphic style into different arcade eras. Recommended in relatively small doses so as to avoid eye bleeding.

Fun for hours on end


This game is just fun, the shoot em up style and the snarky narrator at the end of your game just makes it all the more awesome

Shmup! Graphics! Arcade!


If you like arcade style gameplay, space and shooting things with a ship that can also drill through rock, because you need to. This is the game for you! Some games that might be share characteristics include, Geometry Wars Touhou "Bit Trip" Games, though Really Big Sky is not a rhythm game. This game can get extremely fast paced and uses "fancy graphics" to give you those particle effects. The user interface is very digital-esque. The game is essentially endless and uses a high-score system. I do not think most people can play it too much though since variety is very much limited to shooting things. The music is It can be a very stressful or relaxing game and the music is very nice, but adequate for the feel for the game. Multiplayer is a really good bonus. It would make a fun party game if people like the genre. TLDR Difficulty, Almost challenging incline. Maybe low seizure warning. Fun arcade multiplayer shmup. Adequate music. Nice graphics. Low variety, fine replayability. Could be considered as "those time wasting games". And I liked it.

Pretty Sick Twin-Stick Shooter


Really Big Sky is a pretty fun twin-stick shooter. Nice soundtrack and also includes local co-op which is pretty neat. The gameplay feels incredibly smooth and is fairly addictive if you are into this type of game. The art style could be described as epileptic but it actually is nice in a certain epileptic way. The sound effects are also a nice touch. They are done really done. In Short: Just play this game if you are bored. It's pretty fun.

What is happening!?


I want to like this game. I do. It looks very nice, flows well, has many options and lots of customization and draws on the nostalgia factors of those olden shoot'em up games. Here is why I cannot: It is hard to motivate yourself since there seems to be hardly any goal in the game. My character is just a bright light of sorts and the flashy graphics feel numbing after a while and I'm unable to recognize if I have to dodge something, shoot something or burrow through something. I guess it is just too much chaos to me. If you like those so-called Bullet-Hell games, this might be for you, but I urge you to check some gameplay videos first.
