Description

Welcome to Gamearth, a once peaceful planet now threatened by the warmongering Space Grunts of Nexgen. In the aftermath of their devastating first strike a child named Rise is forced to take on the sacred gun Shine - and with it the fate of his world. Rise & Shine is a true "think and gun" that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine's add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not? It's going to take all you've got to stay alive in the face of lethal robot armadas, enormous bosses, giant death wheels, and (of course) brainthirsty zombies. Oh, and did we mention the graphics? Each level is composed of hand drawn illustrations with multiple parallax scroll layers so every forward step is new. No tiling or repeated elements; each level is one, continuous work of art.

Excellent game, just too short

Its gorgeous, plays great, sound design is solid. Tough but mostly fair. Its maybe 1.5 - 2 hours long. I wish it was twice as long.

AMAZING

Ihave to say this was a great game. combat, mini games, and story. the only reason it got 4 stars from me is due to the fact that it was really short and i wish that there were more free roam aspect more equipment that can be collected but doesnt have to be.. basically it would be great if these graphics were same but with the roaming aspect of metroid fusion or zero mission. make areas wide and tall so more ground to cover and fun. but other than this.... i sure hope there is a second regardless.

Beautiful Destruction!!!

I have played about 3 hours of Rise & Shine, due to early access (YouTube: Gameocide). The games art is great and vibrant. Jokes are adult silly comments. Many Easter Eggs, destruction, and decent level design.

Horribly Aggravating

Nice graphics but the the gameplay is beyond challenging due to the horrible controls. Some checkpoints are downright infuriating when multiple things can kill you with one hit.

RISE AND SHINE is the most difficult game I ever played

This is a very nice looking game and one of the most challenging also. I love the art and style. I was hoping it would have been more of a arcade shooter like Metal Slug but its more of a strategy puzzle shooter. The difficult is no mercy in certain parts. You will die alot but is rewarding when you pass a difficult part. Overall its a good game.
