TVGB writes: "Created by Robert D Fearon and brought to Xbox 360 by Andy Noble, Squid Yes! Not So Octopus! is an arena shooter, a one-screen enemy blitzkrieg that draws on almost 30 years of frantic laser blasting. Named after a lyric from 80's rockers Half Man Half Biscuit, its lineage can be traced from 1982's Robotron, through the neon pschedelixplosions of Jeff Minter, all the way to the form's most recent incarnation, Geometry Wars. It's an interesting little game; at once a reverential homage, a knowing parody and a creation all of its own."
