OK, I bought this game a couple days ago and started by putting a couple hours on it. I made it through Side A (basically the tutorial) and visited a few stars in Side B (the main game). If I had written the review at that point it would have been a fairly negative one. The next day I decided to have another go at it before writing a bad review. My intent was to only play an hour or so… I ended up spending basically the whole day and logged about eight more hours on it, lol. Needless to say, MirrorMoon had really grown on me and I had slowly fallen in love with this game.

So far, this game looks like it’s going to be one of my favorite games of all time. However, I cannot say that it’s perfect or spectacular without a lot of bias. This game happens to have just about everything I love in a game, so of course I really, REALLY like it, but it is not without faults.
The reason why I like this game so much probably has to do with my favorite attributes to have in a video game. They would be: exploration, puzzles, atmosphere, huge size (why I like games that use procedural generation so much, which this game has) and space.
5 stars out of 5; it is like the classic game Qix, but based off a cube stage, and it’s possible to play co-op or MP [5 thoughts]
1. i love this game, to me it is very similar to tetris. simplistic but not easy to master
2. soundtrack has some very decent moments
3. picking your laser’s color will change the sound that it makes… this is huge, imagine if sound #1 annoys the hell out of you
4. depth, beating most of the lower stages will not be difficult. making it to stage 50 on arcade will be

This game is a remake version of a Cubixx game from PSP and I think its pretty good to have a content that isn’t available from PSP.
Its basicly a Qix in a nutshell, its a Mixed ideas between Qix and 3D Perspective, giving a Fast-Paced Arcade Slice and Dice gameplay.
Its really addicting to play this game, and added Steam Leaderboard brings more competitive to the gameplay.
The only thing that I really wish is Multiplayer, since this game supports up to 8 players, if I’m not mistaken, and I really wish if there’s an Online mode where you can play multiplayer also.

Cheaper than a cup of coffee! I’ve been gaming since the early days of home computers - seriously, my first was a TRS-80, so take it from me I’ve seen and played a lot. I had a warm deja vu feeling in the gameplay, and there are certainly similar elements to games I used to play and enjoy like Taipan, and even some elements of Santa Paravia and Fiumaccio. I have over 500 games in my library, but when I come home from work I’m really not interested in something that is going to challenge my speed and reflexes. Instead I want a game I can relax and unwind with over a cup of coffee. Star Merchant is that sort of game. It isn’t overly complex and you won’t need to spend ages learning how to play. While it wouldn’t hurt to make a few notes as you are playing, you can easily play it off the top of your head and do well. The developer has been adding a few features in the short time it’s been released and tweakig some things based on feedback in the forums, so that’s good as well. Just to wrap this up, I’ve noticed some negative feedback saying the game is broken - what a load of nonsense. People, take a look at the requirements for the game, as it is designed for a certain resolution and default font size. I’m running windows 10, and don’t have any problems. Seriously, it’s less than a cup of coffee at the moment. I know I’ve already spent several hours playing it and have my money’s worth.
I actually regret quite a bit to have to not recommend this game, mainly because it seems to be the labor of an honest, hard working and independent developer. However, that is the way I see it.
First of all, I have to say that despite some negative reviews denouncing this game as broken, I have to say I have not experienced any problems (Windows 10 with two monitors, which usually makes things more challenging).
Now, is Star Merchant a bad game? I do not think so, it is just so INCREDIBLY SIMPLE. As of February 2018 (Patch 1.26 I believe), I cannot really imaging anyone not beating this game, even playing half sleep, half drunk and half stoned (all simultaneously).
If this game appeals to you, chances are you’ll like it. It’s a delightful puzzle game. I like games like Divide by Sheep and Dungeon Warfare, and this scratches a similar itch.
WARNING: The puzzles are not unlocked in order of difficulty. You’ll have easy puzzles and impossible ones right next to each other as if they’re on the same level. This can be disheartening if you get stuck because you feel like the puzzles are only going to get harder and that’s not the case.
My suggestion is to forget about any particular puzzle that’s pissing you off and move on. Don’t spend hours on one puzzle or you’ll start getting upset with the game. For example, Andromeda 14 is one of the earlier puzzles that gets unlocked, so it seems like you should be able to beat it in the beginning. IT IS THE HARDEST PUZZLE! At least it was for me and lots of other people online (which I found out when I looked up the solution; something that killed me inside but I had to move on with my life because I was having dreams about that damn level).
I think I have to give a thumbs down (Though itd probably be a neutral), because of some of the later levels.
Id get stuck on them for hours, I tried literally thousands of paths, worked on the logic of which routes could or could not work, and finally had to get an answer to the level in the game I simply couldnt do.
So I guess Im doing this out of spite? Well, I thought about that, but I dont think so. I believe its because ultimately there was no trick. There was nothing special going on, no deeper logic I was missing, I looked at the solution I put in and there was nothing at all in there that gave me any idea of what Id been missing for all that time, it was just a raw path finding task which is inherently tough to complete if you cant just pluck it out.
A classic breaking blocks game with a good stylized neon art and explosive screen shake
I like arcade games. Fun and good to spend the time.
Overture Music Visualization
I love this! The whole concept works well for using as a “stream starting” screen. I would love to be able to upload my own images and have the music visualizer over the image as well as use the existing backgrounds. I’m hoping for something to use in October, or for holidays, specific themes for different games, etc.
Edit: It’s been a while, and there hasn’t been many updates. I’ve since stopped using this for a stream opening. The scenes just got a bit stale. It’s fun for a bit, and it works well for it I intended it for. Just would’ve loved to see some fresh scenes, maybe even ones for holidays.
I am writing this review from the standpoint of private use, not say to visualize my music on social media (although the developer has indictated they welcome such usage). And from that angle it’s quite the neat tool. In comparison to the few programs that allow music visualization (including music players themselves) it has a bunch of options to modify and adjust the visualization itself and a bunch of scenes/visualization styles.
What was important for me - and what I found nowhere else - is that it works with the general sound output of your OS, instead of being dependant on the user selecting songs to play within the program interface. So if you want to have something nice to look at while you listen to sound from Youtube, Spotify or your private music collection, you can have that. Additionally to that, one of the latest updates also added the mic input as potential source.
Super Space Jump Man
Overall I like the idea of radial gravitational effects, but as implemented it’s still relying on traditional up-down gravity with the player able to fall off the bottom of the map but not the top, but requiring that freedom of movement to actually move forward.
For that reason I don’t' think this is worth a pickup. The main hook isn’t fully to it’s fullest potential here. But if you want a 100% achievement it’s fine.
Casual auto-runner with single-button gameplay.
As other Nannings titles, Super Space Jump Man has a free version available on browser. Aside from Steam Achievements (currently profile limited), Steam version offers nothing else to the free version.
A rare miss from Nannings, for me anyway. Super Space Jump Man is an auto-runner, i.e. the astronaut runs automatically clock-wise the planets. Jumping gets him to next planet, and the next, until the finish worm hole.

OUBEY VR – Cosmic Voyage
This is the least interesting of the three Oubey VR experiences. You just fly above a world real quick and it repeats. The other two had tinges of interactivity that made them much better.
