TOFTT I guess.

Of course that is if I get to post impressions before Sanuku posts a video.

'great'. Kept crashing out instantly. Reset my iPod but sill the same. Think it's the iPod 64 gig issue. Seen this happen a lot with my iPod, memory issue apparently

Can now get to the menu but crashes. Arrrrgh. Wish companies would test it on different sized iPods/iPads

Oh well only 69p wasted

For anyone with an ipod/phone 32 gig or less I'm sure you'll be fine

Crap. :/ 6 mins left for my download and I guess I'll post some impressions. The problem is, seriously...those screenshots don't tell you squat about the game. I've never played a Buck Rogers video game before and I don't know whether this is some sort of endless runner, or a side scrolling shmup of sorts or....ehhh, screw it...just a couple of mins left.

Yeah thought I would gamble and get this. The app description isn't great, hope the controls are okay. Just installed this on my iPad instead

Hmmmm! Touch controls but not relative which is a pain. Touch the right hand side to shoot. Level 1 you can hardly see your bullets as they're using a 'black and white old film' effect. The level was boring with basic enemy patterns and no great power ups or that. In between levels there's a small cartoon style story. Level 2 was much the same, different 'ship' but similar enemy patterns but this time with exploding mined

Deleting already. Disappointing as Buck Rogers is a great famous name and had some decent games in the past and in the arcade. At least it was 69p. But very disappointing.

Nothing for me to add. Everything's covered here, including the part about deleting the game. Huge disappointment.

The good: Epic music, tilt-screen
The baad: Anything else !
16 missions plus 4 bosses (rofl) Every mission is the same. It's already to easy
without relative controls. Played ten missions in half an hour...deleted...
Def not worth of any space on your device !
