For decades, I’ve chased the high that games of my childhood delivered, but I could never quite scratch the itch. But the combination of elements – the discovery, the combat, the upgrades and the world itself – made me excited to dive into Minishoot’ Adventures each and every time. It hits upon all that I love and does it with grace and aplomb, and I cannot recommend this game enough. A treasure in a modern world of titles, it doesn’t do retro through pixel graphics or bananas difficulty: it’s retro because it makes you feel like a kid again.

Minishoot' Adventures is a fantastic twin stick twist on the classic Zelda formula we all know and love, and it's serious hard to put down.

Minishoot' Adventures is a non hand holding, bullet hell, Legend of Zelda like shoot-em-up with Smash TV elements. If you want a game with all that thrown in, then this game is for you. Don't sleep on this one. It's so good. You're guaranteed to lose your ship.

Minishoot Adventures is an excellent twin-stick quest in a wonderfully-illustrated 2D world that's equal parts shooting and poking about to see what might be hiding under a bush or between the rocks. The story isn't particularly deep, but it gets the job done, and at the end you'll have an energetic little village filled with a number of different friendly ships that have each helped the adventure along in their own way. Fighting through the enemies also feels like an achievement, especially seeing as the number and variety of encounters means that few fights end up similar to each other. Zipping and dodging through enemy firepower while sending back a fan of bullets, deciding when to use the overdrive and when to hold back, and getting ready to figure out the pattern of the next barrage never gets old, and interspersing the encounters with a secret or two is the best way to cool down between one burst of intensity and the next. Minishoot Adventures is a fantastic little game that deserves all the love it can get, and a great fusion of two genres that don't get to play together anywhere near often enough.

Minishoot' Adventures is great, plain and simple. It's oozing charm from its art style and UI to gameplay and exploration. It's a game you want to complete 100%, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

An excellent mix between an action-RPG and a shooter, wonderfully developed into one of this year's best indie games.

A successful blend of Zelda and twin-stick bullet hell shooter, which sounds like a terrible mix but brings some welcome novelty to both styles of play.

Quite the double-edged sword I'd say.

Minishoot' Adventures mixes metroidvania with shoot 'em up in a captivating experience thanks to its colorful world full of secrets. The diversity of challenges and the possibility of improving the ship keep the game interesting, despite relying on familiar mechanics. However, the lack of innovation in skills and combat, as well as a limited map system, mark the negative points, preventing the title from reaching its full potential. Still, the game does what it sets out to do well, offering an engaging journey with lots of action and exploration. The charismatic atmosphere and fluidity of the action make up for the shortcomings, making Minishoot' Adventures a worthy addition to the genre, even with the feeling of missed opportunities in terms of boldness and innovation.

Minishoot Adventures doesn’t break any new ground – even if all these genres aren’t usually together, they’ve all been around long enough that it all feels familiar. But that’s also Minishoot Adventures’ biggest strength: it all feels so familiar that you can’t help but feel like you’re playing an old classic.

Taking inspiration from a little green elf, Minishoot' Adventures combines bullet hells and exploration to create something truly unique. This title might not be the toughest or most compex title on the market, but the feedback loop between combat and exploration kept us captivated.

While Minishoot’ Adventures is a fun, casual game to play, unfortunately, it’s not a game that I can see making a big splash. It doesn’t have much replayability to it and I won’t find myself looking to play it again soon. The adventure was interesting as I was exploring and fighting my way through the game, but I forgot about it once I stopped playing the game.
