Geometry Wars, etc.

Hey, I'm just wondering which geometry type wars to get. I'm thinking about circuit_strike.one or isotope. I'm not very familiar with this genre and the only game I have like this is pewpew (free) hahah. Tell me a little bit about both if you can and also if there are better games in this genre, list them for me .

I'd personally go with my fav. three: Isotope(the one with the most content), Nano Fighter!(though not really geometry wars style) and Light Wars(the closest you'll get to GW I think)

Well if you want an original game that's not a direct clone of geo wars I'd go with cs.one. It controls completely different and those who have had the pleasure of really "getting" the control, have all had the very same reaction......Holy Shit!!! A lite version is pending approval, however it takes time and effort to really feel out how this little beauty was meant to be played, but once you do, the experience is visceral!! It has a lot of haters and maybe some of them are justified but all in all, it's the ONLY game that I believe rivals geo wars for the crown of "Best Arena Shooter".

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Well Occurro is a really good Geometry Wars Like Game With very good controls and that Game is Pretty addictive and one of the best shooters. Isotope is on sale for $0.99 Cents and there is a lot to do like buy different types of ships, modules, abilites, and pretty nice gameplay. Then Nano Fighter is another good one so its up to you which one you want to get but i would choose all three and its worth it.

First off I have both Geo. Wars games on Xbox, am pretty good at it although not great by any means either and really like the games.

I bought CS1 based on alot of positive reviews and while I have only tried it a couple of times I simply have not liked it one bit and kinda regret buying it but of course maybe with more time it could grow on me.

I played the Light Wars lite version and enjoyed it more and may purchase this but I believe ppl have said theres a lack of weapon upgrades and such so Im not sure.

Isotope looks pretty good judging by the video and I may try that one out next.
