Black Hole’s intense shmup action feels far more suited to Nintendo Switch than its previous platforms, and the gravitational mechanic makes for a cool twist on a well-worn formula. It’s a solid little shooter for one player to blast through with twin-sticks at the ready, it’s just a shame there’s no support for local couchplay to go along with its litany of customisable options.
Overall, Black Hole is a refreshing little shooter. I had a blast with it, and really value the developer’s interest in design and user feedback. The game looks great and plays well, taking a simple concept and making its own statement on the genre; I think it has even more potential through future updates. In the meantime, at $5.99, this is a great value title for single players looking for some shmup fun.
Black Hole does, honestly, some tricks that nobody else does. The fixed screen with the gravitational pull is an unique concept that keeps you sharp. The act of playing the game is awesome, and nothing should be taken away from it. After 40 levels though, there is nothing for most players to return to. Sure, there is room to improve on your runs, but that really depends on the type of person you are. As for myself, I’ll probably end up going back to it now and again.
