Teslapunk is definitely up there for being one of the stranger ID@Xbox games. It may not be all that visually impressive but its outright peculiarity and addictive gameplay makes up for that shortcoming. While it may not be that long of a game, high score addicts can sink a lot of time trying to be the best among their friends (or the world) via the leaderboards.
Teslapunk simply cannot be recommended in any form. While it has a fantastic idea for a scoring system, everything else about it is simply unappealing. The visuals are such that there is a true feeling of eyestrain. This is not written to be funny, it is possible to become nauseated while playing or even watching this game due to some color choices mixed with randomly flashing lights and backgrounds. The music is almost all unlistenable.
While it packs few original features, this vertically scrolling shooter still manages to be enjoyable. It's challenging, audio-visually interesting, and the bosses and level layouts are nicely designed to give your reflexes a decent workout. Just don't expect it to keep you occupied for long.
