Tesla vs Lovecraft is a solid and fun twin-stick shooter. A wide variety of weapons, gadgets, and perks keep things fresh and interesting. Other than a lack of mission variety and no online co-op, this is a game that will keep me wreaking havoc on Lovecraft's monsters for a while.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is a fun twin-stick shooter, made even better by being technically on-point and very clean to play.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is named after two celebrities from human history, something quite unusual and, despite the cliched story of a conflict involving vengeance and the end of the world, it is worth playing. It's not 10tons best title when evaluating by the variety of weapons, but it will provide tons of fun. Undoubtedly it's their most frenetic title so far, and that makes it a great title for those who enjoy the genre.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is a wonderful action-packed shooter that combines H.P. Lovecraft's monsters with the magical electric inventions of Nikola Tesla.

Tesla vs. Lovecraft isn't going to win you over if you crave innovation. There isn't anything here that hasn't been seen in other twin-stick shooters, but there isn't much for those wanting something off the wall, either. The story is lacking, but the game provides a solid and lengthy shooting experience, and even though there isn't a shortage of that genre on the PC, Tesla vs. Lovecraft is good enough for fans to check out.

While it doesn't quite stick the landing, Tesla vs Lovecraft is still well worth checking out. This twin-stick shooter captures the heart of what makes the genre work, and is designed to appeal to every level of skill. It's just such a natural and fun game that anyone will be happy to give up their weekend for it. The only other complaint worth noting is the blaring foghorn. Inception is a fine movie, but the horn it popularised has been a nuisance to this critic's eardrums for quite a long time. Hearing "BWWAAAHH" every couple minutes is akin to being trapped in the depths of Cthulhu's madness.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is enjoyable enough for what it is: a simple, energetic twin-stick shooter fat doesn't push any boundaries but gets most of the fundamentals right. At the same time, there's so much untapped potential in the idea of Lovecraft/Tesla crossover, and that leaves me wanting so much more from this game than it actually delivers.

Tesla vs. Lovecraft is a wonderful and creative twin-stick shooter that manages to stand out from the crowd in what is something of an oversaturated genre. Despite the small reservation I have with the game's initial difficulty level, everything else — its art style, sountrack, gameplay and overall atmosphere — adds up to make a truly worthwhile experience. It might just be one of 10tons' best.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is actually a pretty decent game. I'm personally displeased with using both names anywhere, but merging horror with technology is quite a good idea. If Lovecraft has to be an excuse for monsters and Tesla one for technology, let them be.

Tesla vs. Lovecraft is yet another amazing twin-stick shooter from the team at 10Tons. I honestly don't think anyone is going to dethrone them of their crown at the top of this genre! It's so familiar yet different at the same time, especially if you have tried out their other games like JYDGE, which is great for people who love this genre and want something fast-paced to play through without having to earn stars to progress through the levels. Throw in the local Co-op mode and the daily challenges and you'll find a game that's hard not to recommend to everyone.

Mindless fun is the biggest selling point, and though I had hoped for some more weapons to play with and better level variety, Tesla vs Lovecraft is still a riotous twin stick shooter.

Beautiful contrasts and lights in a difficult, fun and addictive enough proposal to spend a pleasant time at the controls

All said, Tesla Vs. Lovecraft is probably the best 10 Tons game I’ve played to date from concept to execution. It puts everything they have on the table, looks incredible, plays smoothly, and is simply a hell of a lot of fun. I’m hoping to see just a little more come to the table to make the experience even better but if you’ve got a soft spot for some intense twin-stick shooting action you (and a friend if you’d like) really need to put this at the top of your list.

Take this game for what it is, an addictive twin-stick shooter which will ram more and more enemies down your throat until you learn to survive. For me, there is nothing more fun than blasting hordes of enemy creatures away with varying perks and weapons. It's by no means perfect but I will take a game like this most days of the week on my Switch for a bit of mindless action where the campaign is satisfying and the survival mode with online leaderboards is enough to keep me coming back over and over again. Everybody needs a game like this on their Switch and in their lives!

Tesla vs Lovecraft does not seek innovation within the SHMUPs, but instead, aims to merely contribute to the genre with modest features and boundless levity, and it hits the mark.
