So, is "Swarm" any good?

I have to say it looks ok but I'm just wondering if it's any good because I haven't heard much about it whether it's good or not.

I think it's pretty fun. It can be a little tough because instead of controlling just one guy, you have up to 50 to deal with. Once I got used to the control, I found it to be pretty enjoyable. It's kinda like Lemmings as a platformer ... I think that would be the closest comparison. I'm only on level 5 tho.

Yeah, i wasn't sure of this game either. But after hearing that it's similar to Lemmings, it looks like i'll have to buy it. I loved lemmings, one of the best pc games back in the day. Still play it every now and then.

I'm loving it so far.

It's basically a Lemmings/Pikmin style hybrid game, but transformed into a weird kind of platformer, and a lot faster and twitchier, with a combo/score attack focus, filtered through Super Meat Boy, and the idea being to combine killing them with saving them in tactical ways. Preferably by stringing together Bulletstorm-style skill kills.

So yeah, imagine Lemmings + Pikmin + Super Meat Boy + Bulletstorm, then make that whole package a lot faster and a lot harder, and you've got yourself a pretty good idea of what Swarm is.

Its great but not won't the full price. Wait until it drops!

I had an annoying time trying to get one achievement but once I got it completed the game in less than a day!
