Developer: Sonoshee

Genres: Arcade, Action

Rym 9000 is a vertical shmup in which you fight your way through 5 levels of concentrated action to reach the Moon and find the Rym 9000 treasure; a legendary relic left by an ancient civilization, buried in the Moon for a generation of pilots to find and "turn the world upside down." With an emphasis on haywire motion and experimental visuals from Sonoshee, along with a cyber-stellar soundtrack from Roex, Rym 9000 will take you on a chaotic trip of challenging but fair hyperkinetic fun. Achievements are set in place for the player to unlock World Log entries and know more about the world they're venturing into, as well as understanding the history behind the treasure that the protagonist and millions of other pilots are setting out to find. Fight your way through relentless hordes of enemies, defeat each area's boss all the way up to the Moon's guardian "Diesel", and register your score upon beating the game on a leaderboard that records the top 10 players in the world.

I think the developers largely succeeded in achieving their vision for Rym 9000, so I don’t want to come down too hard on it. It’s not like there are any bugs or real problems with the game, the speed of the ship and the art style just really make it not a game that I enjoyed very much. The 5 stages do offer some good variety, even if the game is rather short. While it may take less than an hour to play through the game, you are very unlikely to be able to complete it until you have put in at least 5 to 10 times that amount of time. It’s hard to argue with the $7.99 price point, the game is worth it for the soundtrack alone. But if you are going to actually play the game, you may want to watch the trailers, which will give you a better idea of how the game plays than I can with screenshots or description. Even if it didn’t work overall for me, I have a lot of respect for the developers bringing a different artistic aesthetic to a very crowded genre.
