The game has menu problems that make it UNPLAYABLE at all past level 2. Strangely, the demo did not have this problem. The developer has had a long time to fix the problem, but it appears he’s promoting some other game now.

I really wanted to like this game because I love shooters like this, but it just feels unpolished and has too many little frustrations. Upgrades are uninspired and cost WAY too much to max out requiring a lot of grinding. It seems there are so many bonuses and upgrades that should obviously be included, but aren’t for some reason. I can overlook little UI issues (Why does the audio volume range from -1% - 104%?), but it just gets repetitive and becomes a grind. I quit near the end once I got to a slow escort mission that would require a slow grind to upgrade my ship to finish.
I didn’t think making a simple 2D space blaster could ever turn into this big of a catastrophe…
No in game audio settings at all. Ugh.
The Timer at the top has a decimal and shows fractions of seconds down to the 10,000th of a second. WTF. Can this developer really not simply google “how to round a variable to a whole number in Unity”??
Your space ship has no collision at all with enemy ships! What the hell dev?
No impact is shown when you get hit by an enemy bullet, ‘nor is there any audio for this.
Good indy game with chill vaporwave beats.
It would be nice to have some sound options every game should have one, but besides that it’s a good cheap game.
An indie developers first game on Steam.. and it shows all too well.
This game lacks so much polish that it quite simply makes it unsatisfying to play. It feels “bad” even though it’s not a bad game and it does offer some good sprite art and nice ideas and enemy movement etc.
Watch my video if you want to see more on why I cannot recommend this game at this point in time.
.It needs a LOT of work! Let me know when it’s been in the over for a full 60 minutes, not just 60 seconds!
It Is A 2D Video Game Of The Bullet Hell Genre With Pixel Art Graphics.

Good game, I very much enjoyed it.
As I see some reviews, I feel I should write something that ‘overcomes’ them all - well, I cant do that. But… This is finished game, balanced and polished. Long enough - maybe 14 hours to end story mode. Some levels are harder than others, not overwhelming, so game difficulty (adjustable: easy, normal, hard)is fine.
It brought me memories of Xenon II Megablast - my favorite shmup of all time - you have to even collect little balls from dead enemies, except story mode can’t be played through on one session (thankfully) and the music is not as good and…
I actually do recommend Stellatum, but it comes with an awfully long list of qualifiers to that and a lot of issues, so this is marked not recommended for those who are looking for the problems with the game as there may very well be dealbreakers in here for you. I could not in good conscience recommend it to just anyone who likes space shooters. If you don’t mind the things I’m about to mention though, then I can fully recommend it.
So first off, other negative reviews have stated that the component parts you need to craft items are really random. This is true, you will often be missing key pieces. As you get into later levels, more pieces drop, but more are needed, so this doesn’t help much. Fortunately, there is also a universal item drop that every enemy drops which lets you craft any component part you need. This isn’t mentioned anywhere in the tutorial and it’s not especially obvious on the crafting screen you can do this, but it means playing through each level once will typically give you enough parts to build anything you need, but you may need to craft specific parts at times.
Deep Space Shooter
Great time killer. Space shooter on the ship
Maybe not very deep but definitely a solid retro-style shoot ‘em up
In Deep Space Shooter there’s not much story to speak of. Enemy (alien?) spacecraft fly in from all cardinal directions and you shoot them while dodging their attacks.
There’s lots of different enemies with various weapons like basic shooty shoots, missiles, and lasers. In story’s later stages and in the endless mode it can get crowded if you’re not careful. In the story mode there’s 12 big bosses to fight too.
So there is a lot to say about this game, at the beginning i buyed the game because the idea was to buy a very skill/ability dependent and challenging game to play with my brother.
the game’s graphics is not absurde or crisis-like but he has all that he needs, this isn’t a game born to have a beatiful visual, this is born to challenge you, stage after stage, world after world.
the first 10 min with my brother was like:“meh, it’s cool but there isn’t anything special…”, well at 15 min in the game, when the difficulty started to be pretty challenging, me and my brother were:“wow this is cool and hard but i’m better than you, how about a challenge?"; we made 2 profile on the same game and we started tryhard to finish all the game and his achievement, after the full finish of the game i was like:“let me see how much time we spend on this game…” i looked the timer and there was 150 hours so i decided to make a good review, so what can i say about this pure skill game… it’s fantastic in his context, very hard(very very very very hard) but also not too much frustrating, the controls are very fluid and there is also a lot of things too unlock(spaceship, powerups, guns, etc.) so you can adapt your play style to your ship and personalize your expirience.
A fantastic Space Shooter, that retake the mechanics of the old school, Higly reccomended for the nostalgic one!!
