VSG Recommendation: Play It
Critics Consensus: Boomerang X provides a fresh take on the arena shooter. The game is rather short, and it skimps on a lot of elements that would give it depth and replayability, but the boomerang abilities are unique, the art style is full of personality, and the challenge makes it well worth experiencing.

9/10
Jordan Devore (Destructoid)

Above all, I like the way that Boomerang X sprinkles in combat abilities and just-fussy-enough enemy types. It’s all layered on without needlessly complicating the whole thing. This game starts fun, and it ends fun. There’s no time for your mind to wander, or get twisted up trying to remember the controls, or feel too stressed out. It’s a great flow.

Boomerang X is the 2AM food truck run of arena shooters. You’re in and out before you know it, but holy shit is it amazing. The boomerang abilities that form the core of the gameplay are unique and insanely addicting, but there’s always new foes and features constantly revealing themselves as the game progresses. It’s a brief experience, maybe too brief, but it’s still an unforgettable one.

Fantastic gameplay paired with a game structure that resembles a tech demo makes Boomerang X worthwhile, even if it doesn’t live up to its potential.

Game Info

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

Whispers bubble from fresh cracks in the ground, echoing through the abandoned depths and primordial woods. A black flow cuts through stone and threatens to spill once more across the world. The ancient tetraform calls, and with it come unearthly powers. Catapult yourself through the air, use the power drawn from fallen creatures to slow time, and cut through the swarms of dark beings with a razor-edge boomerang. Travel through once bustling locales, sacrificed to hide a myth, and descend the Godpath into the lost realms below. Cleanse these halls and ensure that whatever lies beneath doesn’t come back.
