"The various skill combinations (and option to refund), multiple levels, and New Game+ (ha, more like Difficulty+) make it easy to recommend as a shooter."

"The game itself beams with the high quality presentation that developers such as PopCap Games are able to deliver. If you are looking for a new shmup that's out of the ordinary then this will definitely be something worth getting into."

"Rise of the Ravager is an addictive shooter that does a great job of yoking that wonderful hypnotic feeling that a great shoot-em up can provide, while also deftly mixing up strategy elements and implementing an effective upgrade system to keep you on your toes."

Not giving up Linas :) We're just working hard on making Three Dead Zed even better for the Steam release.
