What is Space Moth DX about?
Space Moth DX is the definitive edition of 1CC Games intense arcade shoot em up, with a brand new DX Mode that will put even veteran bullet dodging skills to the test! Beginners are catered for as well, with a rebalanced Arcade Mode thats just right for anyone looking to get started with bullet hell games.
Space Moth DX is an old-school bullet-hell shooter. Bullet-Hell-typical, it is our main task to avoid the projectiles of the opponents, who come to us in patterns. Our hitbox does not consist of our whole spaceship, but only of a small point in the middle of our ship. Meanwhile, by pressing and holding down a button, we enter constant fire, shoot down simple enemies and bosses, and collect items that score points. Space Moth DX plays in the insect kingdom. So, our opponents are beetles, dragonflies or sometimes water lilies or frogs. All projectiles escape in species-specific patterns. At the end of a passage there is always a boss opponent waiting, for example a giant stag beetle. Bullet-Hell is quite serious about this. There are moments when almost the whole screen is full of bullets and we have to squeeze through the few gaps. The game is not very long overall, but the challenging level of difficulty guarantees longer game fun. The most important thing with such titles, the control, has failed directly and well controllable, so that a success is really based on the skill of the player. Graphics and music is pure retro, Japanese old-consolig. Aptly and skilfully, anachronistic feelings are addressed. The style is simple, charming, colourful, creative and entertaining.
