Edit: I feel like I have to edit this review. The game is great in design and visual style! Yet, unfortunately, for some users there seems to be a problem, that the game just won't go above 30fps. Which is pretty cross, as the game is intended to run in 60fps and gets slower with the framerate. Thus, people who have the same problem as me will play through the game in HALF OF THE INTENDED GAMESPEED. For nVidia users, turning on maximum performance in power management mode works, for amd users, like me, however... nope? I'll remove this text, as soon as a fix has been found.
We've been waiting for this game since it came out exclusively XBLA to arrive on PC and now we've been waiting even longter for it to finally remove GFWL. Now we got that, too!
ITSP is a Metroidvania-type game where you control a flying saucer through an... well, an insanely twisted shadow planet! You gain new abilities and have to backtrack to other locations where your new ability will come in handy. The visual aesthetics are comical yet not ridiculous, the sound design is quite intense. The game's cutscenes feature music by Dimmu Borgir, whereas the background music is more atmospheric yet not less fitting.
All in all a very engaging experience, some may consider it short, yet intense none the less. Recommended!
