Yeah I wouldn't call Fireball bad nor a clone Radiangames makes good stuff - Ballistic is easily one of the best dual-stick shooters you can get on iOS.

Yep, radiangames' games are great, looking forward to whatever they put out next.

As I am for ChaoticBox; Match Panic and Silverfish remain 2 of my favourite games on this platform.

Ballistic is too chaotic for my flower. I prefer Inferno+ because of its strategic elements. Anyway I will never delete Silverfish :-)

Game Center: masvil - feel free to add me telling you are from TA.
Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.

Silverfish, and the iPad version Silverfish MAX continues to be on sale for a limited time. 99c/69p is an absolute steal for this fantastic game.

In fact, I've never owned an iPad, and probably will not for quite a while. However, I do have hopes of purchasing an iPad Mini sometime this year. And when I do get one I know that I'm going to want Silverfish MAX on there, so I'm going to go ahead and show my support to one of my favourite developers on iOS and take advantage of the sale.

I'd also like to mention that Critter Panic, made by the same developer, is one of the best free games on iOS. If you like Silverfish, or even if you just enjoy free stuff, please show your support by downloading Critter Panic. And when I say free, I mean free: no ads, no IAP, just fun.

Thanks.

To be clear, Critter Panic does have ads (gotta try to bring in some money somehow!) but never during gameplay, and you'll see a maximum of 1 per completed game in the main menu. A banner may show up at the top of the menu as well. No IAP though

Oops, sorry! Guess I got a little carried away.

For those that missed it: Silverfish is now FREE! First time ever since its release 3 years ago

So grab it while you can. This sale won't last much longer and won't happen again for at least another 3 years!
