Shooting Stars! is a game inspired by the 21st Century internet generation. It's both an immensely fun and a strangely therapeutic experience; a great experience packed with action and satire in equal measure.

Shooting Stars! is a simple and basic shoot'em up, with a funny premise: you've got to shoot brainwashed celebrities instead of ugly aliens. Aside that, it's a Space Invaders wannabe, nothing more, nothing less. And it becomes tedious after a few hours.

I honestly believe that while this game didn't need a multiplayer experience, it would have benefited greatly from a story mode.

If you're looking for a quick game to blast away five minutes you could do a lot worse than Shooting Stars!

If you can ignore the nonsensical story and execution, Shooting Stars is a decent arcade shooter. It isn't necessarily bullet hell, but it remains challenging, and the randomized power-ups and bosses make up for an otherwise repetitive level of difficulty. Despite the game's short length, the various combinations give it some legs since no two playthroughs are thoroughly the same unless you're gunning for the daily challenge. For arcade shooting fans who want something traditional but ultimately casual and don't mind an off-the-wall paint job, Shooting Stars is worth checking out as long as you don't expect too much.

Shooting Stars can provide some thrills due to its solid bullet-hell focused gameplay systems. The mechanics are tight and the special pick-ups diversify the combat a bit. But at the end of the day, its comedy feels more painful than enjoyable. The fact that it is thrown your way constantly only makes it more unenjoyable. It simply feels forced.

There is no reason to waste your time on a game as unambitious as Shooting Stars!
