Of course I want a cool gadget

Ed is stranded on Earth and has to get back to his own world.

All the animated graphics, as well as the weapons and the weapon-icons in the inventory are new and they look really good; although some are a bit small.
The storyline is rather thin and at first I had no clue what to do. I got very good in dodging, since I could not kill any enemie with just the 'fist' Ed uses. But once I got my hands on a projectile-weapon it turned out to be a fun game. It is a well worked out shoot 'm, blast 'm, kill 'm D-mod with nice mapping, cool graphics and really good music.
The one thing I did not like was the auto-save: if you level up but are killed, you start again with what the auto-save saved: and I want to define when and how many times I save.
The end was a bit dissapointing since the end-boss was too easy to kill and since the narrator tells you that Ed can't get out of the room so he will never return to his homeplanet.
But if you like weapons that blast,this is your D-mod!
