Critic Reviews for Nova Strike

Nova Strike is a fun and challenging shoot 'em up, featuring procedurally generated levels making each time you play feel different than the last. The game isn't super long, but if you choose to play again, there are other things to challenge yourself with.

7.5 / 10.0

Fun sci-fi shoot 'em up with a dash of roguelite

Nova Strike isn’t a bad game by any means, but it doesn’t do enough to make it stick in your mind like the best of the genre. The roguelike elements are nice, but there simply needs to be more variety and unpredictability to make the focus on them truly worthwhile. And so what you’re left with is a shoot ’em up that too quickly looks and feels generic, with little reason to keep playing once you’ve bested what it has to offer.
