Score Rush Extended might look and sound a little generic, but it's a solid, back-to-basics shooter that truly tests your arcade skills. Its bullet hell gameplay is nicely tuned to be highly challenging and addictive, and it's just plain fun to play. If you're a fan of hardcore shooters, definitely check it out.

Some might appreciate this stripped down approach, but I like a little more visual variation in my games.

Score Rush Extended is very much a one trick pony, but that one trick is a tried and true classic and still enjoyable all these years later. Even though I personally prefer to play bullet hell shooters with mechanics that put a twist to the genre to keep things interesting, the simple and satisfying action, along with its modest asking price, makes Score Rush Extended well worth looking into if you have an itch to dodge a screen full of bullets.

What first appears to be a bullet hell shoot-’em-up that’s stuck too far in the past, becomes a game that embraces its retro influences intimately and successfully by being an enjoyably intense and challenging throwback. The only major downside to Score Rush Extended comes in the form of some very basic visuals that prevent this being an even bigger surprise.
