  • For a short adventure that took around 5-6 hours to complete, it’s a refreshing change of pace from the grit and grime reality normally sought by today’s modern game. Planet collapsing tragedy aside, this adventure is not one in need of rescue.

  • Another great offering from the Pixeljunk team.

  • Gleefully swift, ingeniously puzzling, and kind to your senses through delightful art and a terrific soundtrack, Shooter is received with open arms on the PC. All we need now is its 2011-released sequel to really satisfy that post-game hunger.

  • If you didn't play the original 2009 release on PlayStation Network, now you have the chance to redeem yourself. Even if it lasts almost five hours, PixelJunk Shooter is a fun and deep shoot'em up, with a clever twin stick control scheme. Sail aboard the Pinita Colada: you won't regret it.

  • PC PowerPlay

    A simple shooter with some cool puzzles. It won't change your world but acts as a pleasant enough distraction. [Apr 2014, p.59]

  • Playing right through will take you about five or five-and-a-half hours, so it’s not a long game - but you know what else is repetitive and takes less time than that? Call of Duty. Do a value-for-money comparison on that.

  • Standing out in a deluge of indie games, PixelJunk Shooter looks great – production-wise, everything, from graphics to controls, is much more refined and thought-out. But the gameplay itself is too linear and simplistic than the clever, mind-bending puzzles we have enjoyed over the last few years. They should have ported this one sooner.
