Thank you Ratalaika Games for sending us this game to review!

Gun Crazy is a run and gun platformer where you work for the police and battle monsters and robots. Even though it’s got only four levels, it is still pretty time-consuming (because of how hard it is). There are a variety of enemies to fight, along with some bosses.

There doesn’t seem to be a story, but all I know is that you work for the police force (as I said earlier). I think this is the case because you drive into each level in a police car. In the third level, you are on top of the car while it’s driving, and you have to fight your enemies while trying not to fall off of your car (if you do, you’re roadkill).

Strong Points: Fun
Weak Points: Very difficult; Only four levels; no multiplayer
Moral Warnings: Violence; female character wears revealing clothing

The second level is very difficult, and I wasn’t able to beat it (so, I went on YouTube and found out what the others were like). It’s not like the others, because you don’t have very much space to move around. There is no screen scrolling, because all of the action happens in one place. When it starts, a few large red balls will spawn. They will start bouncing around, and if they hit you, you will take damage. If you destroy them, they will split into two smaller ones. Destroying those ones will do the same thing. Once they are small enough, they will stop reproducing. There are many waves of these, and eventually golden balls will spawn. Golden balls do the same thing, except they have a lot more health. The boss is a ship that attempts to kill you using balls of plasma, and it tries to crush you in a couple of different ways.

The first level and the fourth level are pretty similar, except the latter is a lot harder. In the first level, you seem to be in a city, while in the last one, you are in a wasteland. But what makes these two levels similar is that they have the same style. They have the same type of run and gun action. They don’t have anything special about them.

The graphics quality is okay, but not amazing. It is slightly pixelated. The music is fine, and it fits.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 66%
Gameplay: 12/20
Graphics: 6/10
Sound: 7/10
Stability: 4/5
Controls: 4/5

Morality Score - 90%
Violence: 6.5/10
Language: 10/10
Sexual content: 8.5/10
Occult/Supernatural: 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical: 10/10

There are lots of enemies, as well as a handful of bosses. Some enemies are tiny, and others are five times the size of your character. There are also flying ones, and even ones that summon more enemies. They all do different things, and try to kill you in different ways. They will shoot bullets at you, try to crush you, and just try to jump onto you.

Morally, Gun Crazy is fine. The character you play as doesn’t wear very modest clothing, but other than that, it’s fine. There is obviously violence, but there is no blood or anything. You fight mostly robots, so I don’t see why there would be much.

I would recommend Gun crazy to anyone who likes hard run and gun types of games, and there aren’t very many things wrong with it. It’s pretty kid-friendly, and it is pretty cheap.
