Hmmm do like the look of this, looks a good retro shooter. But its all about the controls for me, is it just that 'circle' thing you use or is it relative touch etc ?

After getting stung by two terrible 99c games the other week i might wait to hear about this one.

Tried the lite, and the joystick controls are terrible (even for joystick). Adding a relative touch control (like all the popular shmups) would be a huge improvement.

Other than that, the game is pretty decent. Enemies seem a little overly strong considering how many shots it takes to kill them (and how slow you move with the joystick to dodge incoming fire).

And the ability to change between plane and mech is nice, but not the mech's single-target gun doesn't feel as strong as it should for sacrificing the 4+ shots from the spread gun on the plane.

Lastly, the hitbox is pretty large, but at least you can be hit multiple times before dying.

Oops somehow missed the lite version link. Just tried this

Actually far better than i thought, the controls arent perfect but i'm quite used to them (After playing with a small virtual joystick/area on iMame so much). Loving the graphics, decent retro shoot em up

Relative touch would be far better but i'm surprised how much i like this, nice little shoot em up. Has potential. Just buying the full version now

Nope its that circle thing you use to control, i've contacted the guy via youtube to ask for relative touch so we'll see. I'm okay with the current controls as i've played similar games, but relative touch would make it so much better.

Tried the lite and dl the full now too.

It's colorful - it's charming - it's "good old days" time.
And i SEE the bullets, that alone is worth my dollar.
Hope the Devs show up to improve the controls.
