Sine Mora is exactly what you'd expect from a bullet hell game made in the 10s. Wonderful graphics, a terrific storyline laden with sorrow and grief (I MEAN it) and a polished, well-made feel to it. As a graphic designer, I can say that the whole game exhales good taste, from the menus and interfaces to the choice of using the voice acting in the original language of the developers (hungarian), which just adds to the whole experience. Expect huge bosses, hundreds of power-ups (but no leveling system) and lots of noise from all the explosions and destruction. Pay close attention to insta-kill gimmicks, for they might catch you offguard.
Only negative aspect in the game, in my opinion, is the soundtrack. I know the name behind it is a great one (Akira Yamaoka, known for the Silent Hill series), but the songs are not remarkable and don't have much presence in-game. Also, make sure to use a gamepad for maximum enjoyment (though a regular keyboard setup will still do the trick nicely!).
All in all, if you have at least a little bit of interest in the genre I'd highly recommend giving it a try. As I said, it's a game made with good taste and attention to detail, truly a piece of good craftsmanship if that makes any sense. Oh, and pay close attention to the story, it's worth it!
