Echoes mode

Echoes mode consists of 10 levels of blasting action, each introducing a new enemy with different strengths & weaknesses.
When you get hit you lose energy but it can be replenished by collecting green power ups. Getting hit may also downgrade your weapon, but act fast and you can power it back up again. Increased kills means more power-ups.

Time Attack

Just want a quick blast? Then try time attack. In this mode you have to score as many points as you can in 3 minutes. You get unlimited energy but being hit incurs a points penalty.

Tips
  • The secret to a high score is collecting multipliers.
  • The more enemies you kill the more multiplier power-ups will be dropped.
  • Shooting stars will always drop a score multiplier.
  • Warning! Points lost if hit are linked to the score multiplier.

Survivor Mode

This is all about how long you can survive without taking a hit. The score is irrelevant!

Tips
  • Your weapon will power up over time automatically.
  • Time is your priority so shooting enemies might not always be the best approach.
  • Destroying planets might be risky but they drop shields which will protect you for 10 seconds, invaluable in this game mode.

Classic Mode

This has a simpler game play and modified controls making it more like the 80's retro games.



Tips
  • Use smaller and more controlled movements than in other game modes.
  • Try and stay away from the edge of the play area whenever possible.
  • Listen out for the warning sounds that mean a saucer is approaching.

Meteor Storm Mode

This challenges you to fend off increasingly frequent and dense waves of meteors. Destroy the golden meteors & collect score multipliers.



  • Tips
    • Your ship starts with a fixed amount of energy which cannot be replenished.
    • Getting hit reduces your energy but also causes you to drop some of your score multipliers.
    • Your weapon power is fixed and cannot be increased.

    Asteroid Belt Mode

    Here you face snakes of energy that increase in both quantity and length at each new level.



    Tips
    • Your ship starts with a fixed amount of energy which cannot be replenished.
    • The score multiplier is linked to the number of asteroid belts at the start of the current level.
    • Your weapon power is fixed and cannot be increased.

    Zoo Trials (zoots)

    • These are a series of additional challenges. Each zoot can be attempted on any of the four difficulty levels, with harder difficulties contributing more towards your total completion percentage; Easy = 1%, Normal = 2%, Hard = 3% and Insane = 4%
    • Only the hardest difficulty achieved counts towards your total, so for the ultimate 100% score you need to complete each of the 25 zoots on insane difficulty.
    • Zoots can only be completed in specific game modes so make sure you check these on the zoo trials menu screen.
    • The Pause screen shows your progress towards and zoots.

Contact / Intro

To contact me or to leave feedback or suggestions for the site , please reach me at: WhatShouldISteam@gmail.com.

My name is Kolten. I have an M.S. in computer science from the Colorado School of Mines and I work as a software engineer. I love web development and I am always trying my best to improve.

I made this website from scratch and I maintain it in my free-time. I was inspired to make a powerful game search engine after becoming overwhelmed by my own Steam library, thanks to incredible bundle sites like Humble Bundle.

This site scrapes data from Steam and makes many calls to Steam's web API every single day. I do my very best to keep all of the data as up-to-date as possible with my limited resources.

Information

This site is the result of my desire to build a powerful Steam game picker that is more than just a simple random Steam game picker / generator.

I pay for this site out of pocket and get limited support from your donations, from affiliate links (Humble Bundle), and from some light advertising (feel free to adblock me if you find it overwhelming or you find that it significantly detracts from your experience).

If you are interested in an API or viewing some of the incredibly insightful data I have collected, check out the donation page to see more details on getting access to these things. I will also make a public API once I have enough donations to support its operation, but regardless I host the DataTrends page for patrons who donate enough!
