gekkota's comments:
It looks like a Galaxian -type game, and I am wondering whether anyone has played it. It's $4.99--kind of pricey for the type of game it is--so I don't want to buy it unless it's good....or until the price goes down

I've played it.

It's well done, but they need to tweak the difficulty. You can get the "sidecar" powerups that give you more firepower pretty easily.

So here's my experience with the game:

easy, easy, sidecar upgrade, easy, sidecar upgrade, easy, sidecar upgrade etc.... I think I had like 6 or so. In the meanwhile I got to a high level which was harder with more aliens swarming down, but with 6 shots at once, it was still easy. Then I died once, and lost all the sidecars. Then it was crazy hard and I died like 4-5 times in a quick succession.

I like the game but Arn is right about the gameplay.

However, I don't remember if the real arcade version of Galaga/Galaxian was that way too.

But I'm posting now to let you know that a new version was released today adding bonus round.

And there's a Lite (free) version now.

Thanks!
I guess I'll give the lite version a try before I fork over what seems to be too much money for this type of game....
