Let me lay it out for you in no uncertain terms. Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser is fun. It’s not a deep, intense game. It’s not going to tell you a heartbreaking story. It’s not trying to be artistic. The graphics are certainly good, and the sound track is amazing in how spot-on it is for it’s premise, but it’s not an art piece in the way Toren was.
It’s just a fun game. It’s a simple, short bullet hell game that sticks to its premise like super glue. It’s not sadistic, or at least the two difficulties I tried aren’t sadistic. It may get sadistic on the harder difficulties, I’m too much of a pansy to have tried them. But the fact that it’s easy to play, and reminds me in every way of the kinds of animes I absolutely adored as a child, made me fall in love with this game. And at the low price of $4.99, if any of this appealed to you in theory, it’s not like you’ll be breaking the bank to buy it.
