During its time in Early Access, Black Paradox has garnered an 8.5/10 positive rating on Steam, praised by users for its intense boss fights and side-scrolling action, variety of enemies, weapons and upgrades, and stylish 80s-infused aesthetic and powerful retro soundtrack.
"Flying space cars, masked bounty hunters and big bad bosses. All spiced up with pixel art and a synth-wave soundtrack. That's what we wanted to bring to our game with Black Paradox!" Enthuses Fantastico Studio CEO, Daniele Bianchini. "We think the roguelite shoot 'em up genre hasn't been explored enough and Black Paradox brings a fresh take on it."
