In two years Pom Pom has created two of the best independently created video games ever released. We can only hope that they earn enough from these games to keep them going in the world of independent games. Without a doubt Mutant Storm is worth your money and it will suck hours away from you in great quantity...but anyone who has played this game well tell you - it is well worth every lost moment.

Like Smash TV and Robotron, MS utilizes the two-stick method, which means one stick controls your movement while the other controls your direction of fire. Don’t worry if you don’t have a gamepad with two directional pads; MS can be configured to work with the keyboard or keyboard/mouse.
Ähnliche 3D-Grafik- und Soundeffekte sieht man vermutlich auch, wenn man bewusstseinserweiternde Substanzen zu sich nimmt. Nur ganz selten gönnt einem das Spiel eine Verschnaufpause. Ich liebe es! Schade, dass die Ballerei bislang nur als Download angeboten wird.
If you have ever played any of the arcade games I mentioned above then go download this game immediately. If you have a dual analog gamepad then download this game immediately. This is one of those rare pieces of software that doesn’t commandeer a major portion of your system or your life. You can sneak in a quick game at lunch, or whenever you have a free 10-30 minutes. As addictive as crack and as hallucinogenic as LSD, you might need some rehab after a few weeks of Mutant Storm.
Simplicity is the key factor
here. There’s almost nothing to
the gameplay except moving and
shooting. For any other game this
may very well be a downfall, but
for Mutant Storm, this suits
things perfectly. Levels start off
easy enough, but quickly become
fast and frantic battles for
survival, and getting all they way
through to the 89th level will
require some seriously ninja skills. If you want a game that
doesn’t tax the brain, but gives
your trigger finger and reflexes a
major workout, then you should
definitely grab this. Oh, and it’s
only a fiver…
As mentioned several times, Mutant Storm offers a classic gameplay environment. The fast paced action, good graphics, tight controls and classic gameplay will appeal to gamers looking for a solid gaming package. However, this is where Mutant Storm might disappoint new gamers. The game doesn’t offer a first person perspective or several different side quests to complete. The game is linear because it’s trying to be one thing, a shooter. Mutant Storm does what it should and will appeal to shooter fans looking for another challenge. Other gamers who have never tried a shooter before should give Mutant Storm a try as well.

Der Name Pompom Games klingt nach einem Entwickler für bonbonfarbene Kinderspiele - in Wahrheit steht dahinter ein engagiertes zweiköpfiges Team, das es sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, klassische Arcade-Action in ein zeitgemäßes Technikkleid aus Polygongrafik und in der Tat bonbonfarbenen Explosionen zu hüllen. Mit Mutant Storm feiern Miles Visman und Michael Michael die Renaissance des Klassikers Robotron. Sie nehmen in einem von fünf Gleitern Platz und ballern sich wahlweise mit Tastatur, Maus und/oder Joystick aus der Draufsicht durch 89 enorm abwechslungsreiche Levels.
