I worked on this, thanks for the post! I'm glad that shmup lovers are keeping an eye out for it as it's who we made it for.

So excited to see what people think! *Bounces*

Wonton 51, possibly the best pixelly ramen-themed iOS bullet-hell shmup in the world.

really enjoying this game! I was surprised when I found out that extra points are awarded for grazing the buildings that you need to dodge.

However, it is kind of hard to see what's going on on parts of the screen when you're needing to tap the enemies to shoot at them, as well as drag your finger along the bottom of the screen to move your character and dodge bullets at the same time. If you want to see the whole screen, you need to hold your device pretty uncomfortably...

I don't know what they could do to fix it... but that seems to be the biggest (and only) issue with the game I've found so far.

Maybe there could be a bar at the bottom where you slide your finger to move, as well as a shoot button that fires missiles straight in front of your current position that you press with your other hand?

Maybe, but a lot of the time, the enemies are behind buildings, and you need to shoot at an angle to hit them...

Agree about the controls. My fingers are covering up a lot of the screen when shooting. Plus only one life? That ruins it a lot for me

Wish there was an option just to fire vertically automatically
