Not off to a great start. Those first few iTunes reviews are obvious shills.

It's a shame when developers do that, because this game actually looks like it would be a lot of fun.

On a side note, the lack of Game Center is a bit disappointing.

We will be adding Game Center in the near future.

As far as the reviews go, we of course asked our friends and family members to try out the game and review it if they wanted to. However, we asked them to review it honestly (whether they did that or not is not in our control).

Also, I hope that when people decide to download the game or not they do it because the game looks fun and not because they felt that the app store reviews were shills.

Please keep the comments going. We want to hear from the community so that we can improve the game as we release new levels and updates!

Glad to hear about Game Center coming in an update. Being able to compare your scores with your friends and the community is important for any high-scoring action game.

Okay I got curious and decided to try this, and I am really surprised b the variety, quality and feel of this game. It does indeed feel like Space Harrier, but there is a lot going on and so far the four stages I have played have been really different in feel, even with "bosses".

The style, music and controls are much better than a lot of shooters on the app store. Way to go! I actually understand if the reviews were positive. Its well deserved, at least if the first 15 minutes are anything to judge by.

This does look interesting, I might buy it later in the week after I see what all the sales are going to be. On a related note is the $0.99 price for Wizard Ops a release sale price or is that the regular price?

Wizard with a jetpack ! This game is totally awesome ! I thought I was going to be stuck on the ground at the start and was disapointed but then came the jetpack !

As a 40 year old ex space harrier fan from back in the day I can heartily reccomend this from the first 15 minutes alone !

Does look good but I find those shill ratings worrying. Your family/friends won't ever rate it 1/5 whatever will they? Just a way of cheating the reviews

Sad thing us it doesn't need reviews like that as it is a very good game

Jeez, not everything in life is a conspiracy theory ploy! Give the dev's a break, probably really excited about their game and getting it out there. If it was a real intelligent Schiller scam for the watchdogs to protect us from, they would have told their people to wait til the game was our longer and stagger their reviews for optimum scamming effect!
