Default Game Impressions

Excellent shmup!

Graphics 4*: don't know if it's retina HD but definitely HD.

Animation 4.5* buttery smooth. May be 60fps.
Models: 4.5*. Love the battleships!
Backgrounds: 4*. Ocean wake looks great. Land also. Water doesn't really animate, just sparkles.

Difficulty 4.5*. Just right.

Overall 4.25*. Easily best WW2 shmup.

Comparison with Astrowings2. This is FAR SUPERIOR. Highly recommended! Make a space bullet hell shmup!!

I like the game, very hard though.
But the IApp is a joke...
I've spent quite a while in the game, and haven't got money to upgrade my ship yet.
The prices for bombs and superweapons are insane, and you'd have to play for weeks on end just to purchase the rest of the ships and fit it with extra weapons, which, by the way is disposable.

It really needs a lot of tweaking on the in game prices, I feel a bit offended that I feel forced to pay IApp to really enjoy the game in full, when I've already paid for the game.

Also, this game is not really universal.
There's a big black border around the game on the iPad, not just iPad3.

I thinks it's like Phoenix HD in being universal. The iPhone and iPad have different proportions. Anyway, after noticing the bars, it completely slips my my mind that they're there. I also rarely finish the games, so I seldom by these types of IAPs. The game is hard, even on easy.

Version 1.2 is available now!

No more black borders on the iPad!

In this version, we've also tweaked the difficulties of the game, easier game play with all missions for Easy and some missions for Normal. We've also added a lot more power-ups.

It wasn't our intention to make the game very hard so we can get more IAP sales. Our games have always been challenging in the past. But we made the mistake by combining challenging game play with IAP. A good lesson to learn

Thank you!
This update provides a huge improvement to the game!

1: In game currency is at least doubled, now it's possible to upgrade our fighter planes and support planes without having to play for many hours.
Great!

2: Special weapon prices is cut significantly. Everything is much, much cheaper, and it's now possible to buy bombs, special weapons, continues etc without having to pay with real money.

3.: Game is much easier, on normal I reached level 6 on first try.
Before update I reached level 3 and had used all my lives.

4. Black borders are gone. Very nice, it now feels like a native iPad game.

5.: power ups is much more common now.

All in all, a great update, and many thanks to the Dev for listening to his customers!

In fact, I'm about to buy something IApp, just to support the Dev after this update.

Thank you.
