Got the Android version of this, which was free. Wonder what the differences are, if any, in coin collection and upgrade prices.

Not sure what to make of this game. I see a lot of people saying that it is not that good yet they are "addicted" to it. It also has 5 stars in the App Store. So either people were expecting more from this game or there are a lot of people that really like mediocre games.

You sure you saw a lot? Coz i thought that was just me. Anyways, i think im done with the game. It just gets harder and harder, no bosses (i was hoping there was at the end of the 5th checkpoint but there's none), and nothing after it. If this was a runner, then i could take it as endless. But as a sort of on-rails shooter, it gets boring once you get past the 5th checkpoint. There's nothing there, except all enemies have 4 health each, and there's almost always 4 enemies on screen which just forces a game over. Then, you start again.

Pretty much. Still a fun onrails shooter/runner. In a few days it will probably be boring, but by then I have had enough fun.

Perhaps a future update will supply more stages. here's to hoping. :-)

Can we all throw in and get this guy a 5th gen touch so we don't have to view these posts 12 times per thread? I've got 5 on it.

Yeah, it was kind of fun at first but it really isn't a runner as the gameplay is slow, but the difficulty ramps up and feels cheap when it gets to be like 4 enemies on the screen and it's basically impossible to get through them.

It's not like real "on-rails" shooters like Time Crisis, which mix things up. And it's not good as a runner either. Tries to combine both and ultimately fails. If you want a good on-rails shooter, go with one of the Time Crisis games or Doom Resurrection, which is IMO the best on-rails shooter on the iOS. And, of course, there's plenty of better options for BTB runners.

Simple question(I hope)

What's the most efficient way to bullet dodge? Right before the enemy is about is fire or is it with a swipe of the lanes before/after the enemy fires a round?

Oh yeah it's free now...

Crap, I hate to give a game a try only when it becomes free, but movie tie-ins are usually a no-fly zone for me. If it's good, I'll "donate" to the game via IAP, if there is any.

I always thought dodge was a % chance as suggested by one of the gadgets.
