It has potential.
I’d like to see Keyboard control. Left and Right arrows to rotate clockwise/counter, Up arrow to move forward.

This game has a lot of potential with its charming 16-bit style and almost endless customization with ship type, weapons and much more that actually have impact on the gameplay and your success.
My only wishes as for now is keyboard support and a soundtrack
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.

Was fortunate enough to be able to play test this, developers obviously care a lot about this game and you can tell. the music and graphics look and sound great, definitely worth a play, try giving it a try with speakers too it’s great.
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.

It’s hard to make an unique SHMUP. Also, if you like the genre as much as I do, you know that most of the indie SHMUPs you often find in the bundles are utter garbage. Because, you know, IKARUGA doesn’t happen every day, while most of the indie games in the genre are just the attempts to make some quick money. People, who make them usually think that it’s easy to make SHMUPs. Make a ship, let it shoot, add some enemies, the end. Schell Games, creators of the Enemy Mind, are not like that. In fact, Enemy Mind turned out to be one of the most exciting experiences I had with the genre for quite some time.
I received Enemy on sale for 4 dollars. I remember thinking it looked interesting, a nice game to play when Im bored or just want to turn my brain off and focus on the pretty wetty patterns that the enemy bullets made. Poor little me did not do nearly enough research. The game is broken into 8 levels, I have only beaten 5 but I feel like I have gotten far enough to write this review. This game is filled with terrible, terrible flaws and great high points. Unfortunately I feel the negatives outweigh the positives. But I will try my hardest to stay positive for this review.
SINGLE PLAYER EXPERIENCE
I started playing just a bit to take a break from my uni work and I spent 3 hours in the first sit. BEWARE, it’s a deep game with multiple choices, make sure you check the shop before you spent your ability points so you can buy the right things for yourself and the ship. If you spend your points lately the game will be way more challenging. The game needs more feedback to the player and be more clear at some points with the management of the ship and the ability points but, if you are patient and spend some time with it you will love it.
Has great potential as a coop 2D side scroller mixing both infantry combat and spaceship to spaceship combat. Some of the UI navigation is a bit clunky and takes some getting used to and will hopefully be polished over time.
