It is hard not to love Everyday Shooter as each level is a great mixture of seventies nostalgia with nice little twists to bring it up to date. The graphics and sound keep each level fresh and unique but it is the simple but fiendishly addictive gameplay which makes Everyday Shooter a success. Expect plenty of late nights with shouts of "just one more game" though keep a spare keyboard handy because you may just throw your main on out the window after making a silly decision just before reaching a new high score.

Everyday Shooter van Jonathan Mak is een heerlijke trip langsheen oude Arcade klassiekers als Asteroids voorzien van ronduit schitterende graphics en een haast hypnotiserende soundtrack.

Erneut schafft es ein Gewinner des Independent Games Festivals mit seinem Titel in den Steam-Store – zu Recht. Denn der „Everyday Shooter“ ist eine gelungene Mixtur aus Musikspiel und 2D-Shooter und damit das maskuline Pendant zum Entspannungsbad nach einem langen Arbeitstag.

Dem Spieler fällt die Aufgabe zu, im Sinne verzehrenden Optik-Orkan allen Objekten auszuweichen, Angreifer abzuschießen und Combo-Knackpunkte auszulösen. Man geht oft drauf. Rasch wandelt sich Aufgabe in Trotz: Das muss, muss, muss doch zu schaffen sein, schließlich stirbt man allein der eigenen Unfähigkeit wegen. Außerdem bleiben Punkte übers Game Over hinweg bestehen: als Währung für mehr Leben oder visuelle Filter. Die Asteroids-Generation wird wohl nicht ruhen sie hier alles, alles, alles hat.

This game is worth getting simply for the audio-visual experience. It's incredibly rare to come across a top-down shooter that actually conjures a palpable atmosphere; that wants to lull you into a daydream yet demands your rapt attention. Many shooters out there require you to ascend into a focused, almost transcendent state of being to be able to concentrate on avoiding flying projectiles while simultaneously dealing damage. In Everyday Shooter, you still need to do that – this is a challenging game, there's no doubt. But there's also such a distinct personality to each stage, a result of the differing chaining structures as much as the distinct and wonderfully enjoyable sound and visual design that make it more than just a Mizuguchi rip-off. It's a novel, enveloping, and surprisingly accessible title that hits all the right notes; an experience like hot cocoa on a cold night.
