Backfire might look simple on the surface. But beneath its neon sprites and minimalist aesthetic there is a core of brutality ready to go supernova all over your face. This game borrows from old skool blasters like Galaga and more recent retro efforts like Geometry Wars. But does it stand toe-to-toe with its plasma soaked precursors?
