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.

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 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.

the one thing I wanted the most out of this game does not appear: the ability to play as Lovecraft.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is another classic from top-down shooter pros 10tons and it’s a must-have for any fan of the genre. Its absurd premise makes for some great lovecraftian horror action, and its balanced gameplay makes it one of the best indie shooters this year.

A relentlessly entertaining experience with energy to spare, Tesla vs Lovecraft takes a comedic premise and crafts an addictive ride, filled with variety. Despite some sporadic difficulty spikes, this stands shoulder to shoulder with PS4s best arcade shooters.

A relatively unambitious but entertaining top-down blaster, Tesla vs Lovecraft is wholly satisfying and enjoyable shooter romp that effortlessly steals morsels of your time away.

Tesla vs Lovecraft doesn't reinvent the twin-stick shooter wheel, but it does refine and perfect the formula of what makes that genre tick thanks to its suitably meaty action, vibrant visuals and a perk system that is deeper than the sunken city of R'Lyeh.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is stupid fun, reveling in nonsense and bullets. The rapid, frantic gameplay delivered in snackable portions underscored by a fantastic soundtrack makes for a hugely entertaining experience, even if it gets a tad repetitive after a while. We'd say blasting Lovecraftian horrors as Tesla piloting a mech was never this fun, but then it wasn't ever done before.

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 a B-Movie style twin-stick shooter that hits all the right notes. Although a bit on the lengthy side, this title is worth every minute.

While Crimsonland is a game that holds a special place in my heart, Tesla vs Lovecraft is very much like that game but with a bigger focus on storytelling and delivering a sense of place. There are thousands of things to kill from creepy crawlers to lumbering creatures, and there’s plenty of weapons and ways to do that to spill eldritch blood. Tesla vs Lovecraft is just a fantastic hybrid of shooter and RPG that maintains its momentum all the way through. Being able decimate crowds of H.P. Lovecraft’s horrors is so damn satisfying while piloting the mech.

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

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 the type of game that someone comes up with, and thinks "this will never work." The premise is ludicrous, and shouldn't end up being a cohesive experience. Fortunately, this top-down shooter is a blast to play. It's fast-paced, hectic, difficult, fun-to-play, and ultimately, rewarding.

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.

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.
