GameInfo: SATAZIUS is an awesome old school side-scrolling arcade shooter by accomplished indie developer ASTRO PORT (Gigantic Army, Armed Seven, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser), featuring an arsenal of 13 types of upgradeable weapons, power-ups, obstacles and boss encounters that arcade veterans will enjoying getting to grips with. Customize your ship by selecting two side weapons which can be cycled and deployed at any time during the action, and a charge attack to unleash massive destruction.
There is a plethora of enemy ships to shoot down, tight spaces to navigate, power ups to grab, and bonuses to acquire. Featuring great stage design, a thumping techno soundtrack, fast and outstanding action, old school graphics and giant bosses, SATAZIUS is a true throwback to old-school arcade shoot ‘em ups, replete with homages which will be instantly recognizable to fans of arcade shooters.
|Dealspwn “The Trafalgar can dish out an obscene amount of firepower (more on that later), but in fine SHMUP tradition, it’s also incredibly fragile. One poorly timed dodge, one errant missile or a single collision will spell instant doom and checkpoint reset. Weaving through tight tunnels and environmental hazards plays a bigger role than besting oncoming projectiles (a bullet hell shooter this is not, rather, it has more in common with Gradius and its ilk) – it’s hardcore, and thoroughly unashamed.” Read Full Review||70/100|
