What our beta testers said:

"there's nothing that makes the GAME anything below a 5-star game. Period."

"This is truly a masterpiece... It's so addictive I'm even playing it at work! I can see the amount of effort that went into this based on the details and subtleness."

"It's done quite well- the first levels provide an addictive beginning that got me through the more challenging later levels." - FPTI

Hi guys,

my name is Ben, i'm an indie game developer based in Indiana. Have been working hard on this game the past 8 months. It feels very good to finally see the game in action. Hope you guys try it out, rate, and offer me some feedback.

Future work: I shall incorporate any interesting features that you guys suggest for the next update. Feel free to brainstorm something cool for the game!

Important: Game works best on iPad2, iPhone4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G/3G. I'm trying to fix problems on the iPad1 for the next update.

This one looks quite nice! I'm curious about the controls for it though, because the gameplay looks fun. I'm almost wondering if it's tilt or something transparent (didn't see anything noticable in screenshots or vids)...

I don't want a signature.

controls (left,right, jump, shoot) are buttons based on the bottom part of the screen

in the video, you see the health, weapons, lives in the bottom. In the game, I moved them to the top, so there's no conflict with the buttons

I'm used to this: left and right on the right side , shoot and jump on the left side. In here it's the other way around
