P-3 Biotic is an intense twin-stick shooter featuring advanced real-time lighting and gorgeous particle effects. Pilot the MK4s nano-ship inside a petri dish against 14 waves of infectious bacteria as they attempt to destroy the Nucleus, a bio-engineered organism growing at the center of the dish. Use mines and weapon power ups to defeat increasingly tough bacteria, and collect energy dropped by vanquished enemies to keep the Nucleus healthy. Or walk a finer line and use the energy stored in the Nucleus to charge up your weapons, turn your whole ship into a bullet, or unleash a devastating shockwave to wipe out all bacteria. The choice is yours, but the Nucleus must survive.
Graphics are nice ( but not competing with other nicer twin stick shooters)
Gameplay wise, it is not slick for my personal taste. Let me explain:
If you go left then right (D --> Q) the ship continues to move to the right for 1 to 2 seconds, for a twin stick shooter this is awkward.
Even when it turns, instead of an instant backflip, the ship first does up, then left. Leaving you on another "lane". Every movement is based on a grid.
Its the same on a controller.
Overall its not a bad game, but I whish I would have been more informed about the gameplay before purchasing it.
