Warning Forever is a freeware 2D fixed shooter where the player must fight a constant stream of bosses. The main gameplay feature is how the bosses evolve from stage to stage. Based on how a boss is destroyed, the next boss will adapt itself to defend against previously used strategies and force the player to change tactics. For example, if the front section of one boss is destroyed the next boss will have increased armor in that area. If the player's ship is hit by a certain kind of weapon, but still defeats the boss, the next boss is likely to have more weapons of that type.

1) The amazing aiming system, which may seem absolutely idiotic at the beginning, but once you master it, it’s like countrolling the ship by your mind only.
2) And the amazing generation of enemy bosses (he would so win the PG compo if he made it for it..). The game tracks data of various things and the next boss is always prepared for your tactic. This make the game amazingly fun to try different tactics and also very replayable.
What really sets this game apart from your run of the mill shmup is the way that you must take down these behemoths. You are only equipped with one type of projectile weapon which fires at the same rate, however, with the addition of a great gameplay mechanic which allows you to regulate the radius of your fire it adds just enough variety to keep it from becoming monotonous. This means that you must rely on precision and strategy to beat a boss. The bosses are built in a segmented fashion with there being weaker or stronger segments. It really forces you to make quick, calculated decisions the further you progress in the game.
The thing that I really loved most about this game is it’s really quick, pick-up and play feel. You can get into the game in no time due to it’s simple and accessible nature. The graphics are very simple, yet polished and the bosses are truly awe-inspiring. There’s really nothing quite like trying to destroy a boss that consumes a significant portion of the screen.
If you love the genre or if your new and are looking for a quick game to get a taste of the frantic joy of shmups, you owe it to yourself to try this excellent game.

That said, Warning Forever kicks boo-tay. And I loathe myself for using the word “boo-tay” in a review, so you can hold off on murdering me for it, I promise it won’t happen again. The controls are perfect, although there’s a little bit of a learning curve there. The graphics are crisp and clean, and the bosses… you have to see them to believe them. This game is, quite possibly, the fifth greatest shmup I’ve ever played. If you’re still reading this, you can stop now, you’re wasting precious time that you could have spent downloading this gem and playing it. So stop reading. Now. This is the last sentence, there’s no more content here, go play Warning Forever.
