Phoenix HD - A Modern Arcade Shmup (by Firi Games)





Phoenix hd is on the nz appstore now!
Wow wow wow! I didn't thought it would be that great but there IS no turning back from that hd experience. The 60 fps framerate is amazing and the new effects and backgrounds are jaw dropping... I hope that firi finally get the attention they deserve by going free because this is the best shmup available on the appstore.
Small things i would have liked: a full screen version because, as of now, there are black borders on the edge of the screen on my ipad. But i assume this as something to do with the retina resolution on the 4th gen being smaller. Oh and the sound of the bosse's explosion is not loud enough but that's just a small rant
Anyway you know what to do now and i can't wait to see the next game from you guys

Find me on Twitter

Logged in and out of appstore but still getting the same error;

' This is not a test user account
please create a new account in the sandbox environment.
[ Environment:Sandbox ] '

Anyone know whats going on here? I've been jb'd for a while and never seen this before.

Game Impressions

Initial impressions. Love the colors, backgrounds, particle effects, explosions, pulsing bullet bombs. Suggested improvements,reduce size of bullets, increase number of bullets. Can't purchase ships or online capability. Looks better in iphone4. Can't wait until iPad with retina is available. Game looks amazing on both devices. Extremely immersive on iPad, sharper on iphone4.

OMFG Phoenix HD looks so incredible on iPad2. Love the Corsair missile trails and that gatling gun Bought the pass, the ships... anything else you guys want to sell to me?!

And the game is indeed severely crash prone, unplayable really on iPod Touch 4G. Crashes on startup, on ship selection, doesn't even proceed to the actual game. I think this might have to do with memory management, as I've seen numerous apps crash on touch4g's because devs overlooked the lack of RAM on this device compared to iPhone4.

it seems like controls are improved in this version. nice visuals are cool but i think the game needs a bit more enemies, also weapon upgrades are kind of useless, because the are a lot of weapon drops and game difficulty scales more or less on the same level. question about iaps, do other ships have own leaderboards or not, because it seems like they are more powerful than the default one.

Ok, after some trial and error it seems the game will run on touch4g as long as WiFi is disabled... which is because now I'm stuck with the free version and can't unlock my iAP.
