The sequel to Shadowgrounds doesn't offer much new. There's the same aliens, same corny voice acting, and the same top-down shooting mechanics. However, I liked this one a bit more. This is probably due to the slightly improved control scheme. I also think the game was helped by the lack of an attempt at creating deep narrative. You get a paragraph of text and some narration before each level and then you're off to shooting hordes of aliens. Simple, short and worth the two bucks I spent on it.
