Review: I have to be honest and tell you that I wasn’t expecting much going into ‘Shooty Skies Overdrive’. I thought it was going to be yet another low-poly shooter of the likes we have seen hundreds of times before. But I have to say I came away from it pleasantly surprised. Sure, it is indeed a low-poly shooter, but its colourful, crazy and full of memes and retro nostalgia which did make me smile. The action is very much shooting and blocking the enemies fire, so nothing new or exciting, but it is presented in a lovable sort of way that I couldn’t help but get into the game. While I wouldn’t say I fell in love with it I did enjoy it; however, I do still think you should try and get this in a big sale as there isn’t a lot of content here at all.
