Just got this and WOW! Runs great on my iPad 2, takes a while to get the hang of as you're thrown in without a tute, but immensely fun killing vast numbers of alien scum! IAPs are there, but not necessary yet. Will play this to see if there's a pay wall and then decide whether to keep or not. Graphics and controls are good - auto aim saves the day.

I'm downloading this, dunno what the differences are from the original Alien Zone but I liked it, a decent shooter with Diablo like mechanics.

From what I can tell comparing the two versions on the App Store is plus has 4 new levels. I absolutely love the first alien zone. The only pay wall I hit on it was needing to buy capsules once I reached lvl 30 or so because I wanted to have at least one level if each skill and capsules start taking a while to farm later in the game. Im currently lvl 41 on veteran mode. Downloading this now and looking forward to the grind again, even if 16 of the levels are the same (though it rotates the enemies). I enjoy it that much! Def check out for free. The coolest sci-fi diablo clone I've played.

Why? Is? This? Free?

Noooooooes!

BTW, to your question, how funny would it be if someone actually went to the effort of faking a game as bad as Space Hunter Sandra?

Oh, the irony... the hu-MAN-ity...

This looks at first glance to have a kind of SHS meets Shardlands DSS/RPG vibe. I just checked iTunes and I cannot view the page for some reason. Fingers crossed, though.

Downloading as you read this post...

Edit: 127 mb? Oh boy, idk...

Nevermind it is free but is located in paid apps on role playing.
Well, the good news is it seems legit.

The not bad but not entirely great news is it is TINY on my iPhone4...

Not bad for the first 5-10 minutes, although I died pretty quickly, and I cannot tell if that was me being new and terrible or an omen of "things" to come...

It's weird, and I need to preface my comments by saying I HATE being negative, especially when I'm one of the first posters...

It appears to lag like CRAZY, but I'm not sure what's going on. Admittedly, I was anxious, so I dled and fired it up immediately after cleaning out my task bar. I guess I'm saying the works could have been clogged?

Having experienced this repeatedly over the past year, I wouldn't hesitate to speculate that my "lag" could have been trouble communicating with Game Center. Bear in mind I only played 5-10 minutes.

Don't take my word on the lag. Frankly, I would love to get your impressions to compare experiences.

As for gameplay? The weird thing is that when it wasn't lagging, the gp was GREAT. Smooth movement, hit boxes were great, all good. It's really small, but it seems to play pretty well when it's not lagging...

OK, off to play some Aralon before bed...

Looks great, lags like hell (iPad 2). I died real quick too.
If they reduce the bloom, fix the lag and balance the fire power a bit, this can be very entertaining.
For now, I wait for an update to atleast fix the lag.
