Finally a Game with Content!
I personally purchased this game. I reviewed it for my 99 Cent Gaming series.
My expectations for low-budget SHMUPs took a nose dive (ha…plane humor) as I started review games for my series due to the tendency to put in the minimal amount of content. Thankfully, Coldwild Games avoids this with some pretty fun progression systems, multiple unlocks, and different modes.
Coming into this game with low expectations allowed me to breath a sigh of relief just from the character select screen and mode select screen alone. Frequent Flyer has 10 different ships with their own stats that can be unlocked throughout the course of the game, and 4 different modes which include Mission, Infinite, Organized (waves of a single ship attack you, one type at a time), and Time Attack. All these modes feature the roster of 10 enemies who themselves have different stats, tons of pick ups ranging from ammo refills, health, upgrades and MISSILES! As I said, it avoids having a lack of content.
