What they say about the game:
PixelProspector's Finest
Syder Arcade is a faithful tribute to shmups in general and to the classic Defender in particular. It feels like a lost classic with its challenging oldschool gameplay that impresses with fantastic 2.5D graphics and tight controls. Highly recommended for any shmup nut!
Honestly, who isn’t a fan of some awesome side scrolling space shooter action? I can’t see a reason why it hasn’t been greenlit already!
A chrome-plated supercharged gunship of a shmup, and I can see Syder Arcade remaining on my hard drive indefinitely.
The brutal difficulty of Syder Arcade may put many folks off from it, but those who are familiar with the genre should be no stranger to adversity. The lush visuals, distinct feel to each ship, and variety of missions bring a lot to the table, and make this a solid addition to any gamer’s diet.
A staple in the gaming libraries of longtime and recent gamers alike. Syder Arcade is visually incredible and the music and sound effects only add to the atmosphere that it generates.
