In case you experience performance issues while playing the game, the following fixes may help.

[If the game does not start up properly]

1. Check that the files have been fully extracted.

2. Try installing the latest version of Direct X. (Run contained file dxwebsetup.exe)

3. Try installing Visual C++ runtime (for 32 bit OS specs run "vcredist_x86.exe"; for 64 bit OS specs run vcredist_x64.exe) 

4. Try downloading the game itself a second time. There are cases where the game file itself is broken. 

[If the game is running slowly]

1. Try changing the screen size. Window mode can be toggled from the menu screen.

2. Change your Windows screen settings. This can improve performance.

3. Try updating your Windows driver. Performance can be improved by updating drivers related to graphics.

[Controls are poorly distributed for the keyboard/controller]

You can change the control settings at the menu screen. Under default settings, press ESC to bring up the menu screen.

[Game controller is unresponsive]

Try starting up the game again without touching any of the buttons on your controller.

[Why I cannot play ZANGYOU mode?]

You need to beat the game first to play ZANGYOU mode. If you already beat the game in the previous version, please see <How to keep your savedata from the previous version> on the top of this page.

It's dense and perfectly paced, just begging to be replayed over and over. - Destructoid -

An excellent run-and-gun shooter that plays beautifully on both PC and mobile; the only sticking point for some players will be its relatively short length.  - Usgamer -

Kero Blaster is a magnificent run and gun, colorful, well-designed, offering a great curve of progression. - -

It's short. Very short. But it's also a great game that those looking for a retro-looking action game should definitely consider. - Vandal Online -

Another state of the art Studio Pixel retro production. - 3D Juegos -

One of the greatest indie platformers ever

It comes as no surprise that everything Pixel Amaya touches turns into indie gold. Kero Blaster is no exception.

It has everything Cave Story had: great music, characters and uber-tight mechanics, while at the same time remaining somewhat more accesible both gameplay, scope and story-wise.

This is a MUST game for plataformer lovers. 10/10 in my book!

Charming, smart, sweet, and strange

If Cave Story was Pixel's answer to Super Metroid, this is his Metal Slug 3. Multiple endings and other New Game+ content keep you coming back even after you've run through the main game once or twice. Not to be missed for any fan of 2D action platformers.

Kero Blaster Review (7/10)

Though the Cave Story comparison has been made many times, I think more of Cave Story Beta when I play Kero Blaster. Shops, linearity, Zelda hearts, all things Cave Story was without. Kero Blaster has a few secrets hidden throughout the game, the only noteworthy one being the Kuro Blaster.
Kero Blaster is a great game at a cheap price, but at the end of the day I believe Cave Story to be the better title, and for free with a large modding community. I think I would have liked the older concept of "Gero Blaster" much more, the old Ame Manga seems like it would have made a great game.
7/10 Stars, 4/5 Stars.
