Normally this kind of game wouldn't really be my thing, but... Redshift. Completely spot on nails it for me.
Yea, we're really happy we were able to make that mechanic work. There's something sublime about weaving effortlessly through the densest of patterns.

It's still quite easy to mess up, but it's not nearly as much because of reflexes.

my favorite i think is green envy blue one is my second favorite followed by redshift then followed by the one that lays mines the others are good but i dont personaly like them(i hated the crap range on flame  tank and i spent so long playing white gloss for obvious reasons that I'm sick of him nothing personal there) but does any one think that wine layers a bit weak sauce? most of the time i have to work way to hard to make the mines usefull(and on most of the boss fights there shite) and gravity missle does more harm than good for me most of the time?.

I actually managed to reach the 2nd floor on a run today, but Crystal Mother slaughtered me.  That green wave attack of hers is murder.

Easy seems like it is too easy but normal is actually pretty hard for me. I've managed to get to the floor boss of level 4 but then I met uhh idr maybe it was Terminus? (It had that color scheme to it iirc.)

Damn it was hard there were bullets... bullets everywhere. It'll take me a couple fights to get it's patterns down and what I should be doing (assuming I meet it often enough.) It ended a nice run I had going to QQ! :P

Couldn't have been Terminus.  That one shouldn't be spawning that early in a run.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Was Lady Staccato I got her again I just guessed Terminus since I had that steam card and the color scheme looked simillar to the card I think (there were too many bullets for me to pay attention :P.)

Got her again on floor 4 again and I decided to just use missiles as I always forget those can be used in combat as I always use them up for health shards :P. So now I'm on floor 5 and gotta hope for the best.

It's not really underpowered.... but it is hard to use.

Powerful but with downsides, I'd say.  Use it well and it can be really good; make a mistake with it and you'll eat a pile of bullets you otherwise wouldnt have.

still it seems more work than its worth really to me granted I can see the gravity missiles worth ill probably have enougher go at it in my next run.(in my last run I FINALLY got to the warden shortly died after words but hey its a start)
