Caster is like going to a 3D rave, running around like you're on acid trying to shoot weird bugs while all the while listening to pumping dance music.
If that's not enough to make you give Caster a try I don't know what is because it's a lot of fun. Caster sees you dash across a 3D world destroying bug like creatures called the Flanx using 6 Unique Attacks that include "Massive Terrain Deformation" and "High Speed Barrages of Energy Blasts". Any game that includes special moves like those, has to be good, right?
The game takes the format of a storyboard where your mission commander spells out exactly what you have to do. To begin with, you take part in a training exercise where your aim is simply to blast away the targets in front of you. The annoying this is that you can only use the keyboard to move but you can use the mouse to shoot. In single window mode, trying to remove the mouse from the screen without pausing it is impossible which is really annoying if you have something urgent to take care of on your desktop or if you want to take a screenshot.
The soundtrack is pure Ibiza and the movement of the character is superb however. The first few worlds are rather plain and boring but then the colors get more intense as you move on to blasting the bugs after the practice sessions.
Caster is an excellent game that's a bit crazy but that's what I like about it. The controls let it down though - it would be much more fun sliding around with the mouse instead of keyboard.
- Fixed a data loss bug that affected save games.
