  • Addictive Game

    By Joey from Sacramento
    Great 80’s style side scroller shooter with the Stranger Things theme music. Needs iCloud support to sync progress on multiple device, AND where’s the Apple TV app? Also needs a weapons breakdown that shows the different rates of fire, power, speed etc. Keep the updates coming!
  • Sooo good! Love the soundtrack.

    By HtoTheRescue
    Fast paced, fun to look at and play. Love the throwback vibe. Happy to spend what I did to get it. Great fun!
  • Ba du du du daa I’m lovin it

    On the App Store there are only a few existing bullet hell games (which I love) and these games are my favorite genre of games. I wish I could play a good bullet hell anywhere and Black Paradox lets me do that. 👍
  • Acronyms?

    By -Thisappblowswhales-
    I have absolutely zero clue what any of the power ups mean. Also what’s the deal with weapons Geyser, Hedgehog and Flamethrower? They’re completely useless. Lastly, leveling up the ship seems have hardly any effect to game play. Difficulty seems to not change no matter how I configure things. Otherwise it’s mindless fun without annoying ads and shoving micro transactions in my face like 99% of other games this fun.
  • Too much dodging not enough shooting

    By Radnar
    Just feels like I’m only dodging bullets, I would rather be shooting amazing things rather than just being stressed out about a million things hitting me on the screen (most of which I can’t see with my thumb in the way) I gave up after a couple bosses. Wouldn't leave a review unless I had to pay money for it, a solid three stars.
  • Black paradox!!!

    This game compared to super hydorah is more fun, more action, the movement is more precise and responsive. It also delivers much better pixel art graphic detail along with the amazing retro music soundtracks which makes this game superb. Let’s not forget to mention that you have health bars in this game which I love also compared to super hydorah which you only 2 hits against you and you’ll die instantly which got frustrating a little (still good game though). 5 stars to this game, a must buy for the price!!!
  • Fun game with annoying behavioral bugs

    By KLuv85
    This is a perfectly designed side scrolling shooter in my mind. I like that even though it’s Rogue-like, you can preserve upgrades to make progressing through the game easier as time goes on. However, I have found that I have to force myself to die in order to get the Garage to display new upgrades for purchase. This means that I find myself purposely dying on the final boss and forfeiting the money I would get from beating him just because if I don’t die, no matter how many times I run through the game, the same upgrades will remain present in the store. Also, it would be nice to have some sort of web site we could reference to determine what each end of level mod does, rather than the obscure description it gives with certain mods/drones/chips after beating a boss. This could also be done in-game with a help/info button. Outside of these two things, the game is exactly what I’ve been looking for and I must give the designers/developers a lot of credit with putting together such a wonderful game. Looking forward to more updates which will hopefully include new levels and boss fights along with the bug fixes mentioned above! (Oh, and new weapons too!) Keep up the great work. 👍
  • Doesn’t save my game

    When I beat the “insane brothers” and close the app and I play again I have to go against them again even though I beat them
  • Gorgeous gameplay

    By RedBeardedBastard
    Beautiful 80s neon lights and particle bursts make this game look incredibly impressive on my Xs. Black Paradox is fun, quick, and perfect for any fan of shoot em ups. I’m not sure if there are any additional characters or vehicles in the works, but I’d definitely appreciate some other fun color schemes and starting weapons! Thanks for a great game!
  • Still working out some bugs

    By It is I.
    Great game, I love the VHS-style design, the music, the gameplay, and the boss fights are challenging enough. Some issues: When you beat the game and then play again right after, it takes you back to the final level. No power ups or anything, you start the game over but in the last level. If you beat the final boss again, you get the same cycle. This must be a bug in the game. If you DIE on the last level during this, you go to the “play again” screen but it won’t let you press the button, and you’re just stuck in that screen and have to completely close out the game and reopen to play again. Also, during the ending credits, there is some text that says “press start to skip,” meaning skip the credits. There is no start button tho, and I’ve pressed all over the screen and nothing. You have to watch the credits every time. The game also, rarely, stops firing your guns for no reason and you have to tap all over the screen like an insane person to get it to start up again. Playing on iPhoneX Otherwise a great game. Will give 5 stars when the bugs are ironed out. UPDATE: They have fixed the issue with repeating the last level after beating the game. The other bugs are still present.
