Review - I have to admit, this vertical shooter has been very low on my priority list, either because I always had such a hard time remembering the name (the meaning of which remains a complete mystery for me) or because I thought that it looked a bit amateurish from the videos I saw on youtube.

I eventually got around getting it though one of those lucky days I remembered the name and I’ll have to admit it, Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta! really exceeded my expectations!

Graphically, this shooter is nothing to write home about since polygonal backgrounds tend to look a bit simple and sometimes a bit unrefined, although there are several moments of inspired beauty here and there while enemies and bosses look consistently good all along.

Interestingly, you are actually in control of the scrolling in this game so you can shoot things around at your own pace, just beware of the time limit because that's what will mess up your games.

Bottom line: Shimatta (for short) is a pleasant shooting game, easy to pick up and play but hard to properly master and even harder to put down. It’s certainly worth of your time, because it has enough of a personality to make it stand out from the trillions of other shooters out there in the wild. 8/10
