Great to see this finally out. Definitely a no-brainer for me.

Yep glad its finally out, i'll be buying this

From the video i would prefer to see more 'firing' instead of moving your 'tornado' in the enemies way but on the other hand its quite different.

But instant purchase for me tonight

According to Echo, this is all he could find. We'll have to see if anything comes out as the day progresses, but for now, this is it.

Guess not. They sure believe that they will catch more Attention next Week when everyone else will play Infinity Blade 2/Six-Guns *Facepalm*

Been waiting for this one for a while. The art looks fantastic, and the concept of a suck-em-up is different, and will make for some intense levels since you're forced into close proximity of enemies.

If I'm a developer, I'll stay away from releasing a game with the major release..
people will just buy the majors and leave the minor games behind..

been able to check this one out... and am VERY impressed with it so far. There's a shop where you can use the stars you earn in each level to enable power-ups, and change them around by 'disabling' the power-ups, and using the stars for other powers, depending on what you think you'll need for that level. The first couple levels are fairly easy, but I've been having one hell of a hard time getting more than one star on level 4, and can not for the life of me get past the boss on stage 6...

To get 3 stars, you'll need to figure out where to set your character to destroy enemies as well as the environment... buildings and such, before the screen scrolls past everything...

There's two modes, normal and hell, in normal, the enemies stop firing at you when you're next to them (attacking them) and in hell mode, they continue to fire, so you'll have to constantly be moving. I haven't been able to beat stage 1 on hell mode yet. =oP

But for those of you who really enjoy dodging around in shmups/bullet hell games - this one should be right up your ally.

Definitely an interesting game... great art, nice music, fluid controls (has two options, both relative, but one moves the character a tad more than your finger, and one is about a 1:1 movement, but for once, I actually prefer the first scheme instead of the 1:1... =oP )


**edit**

I forgot to add that if you run into enemies, they will not harm you, even enemies in the air... you can fly over everything, so you don't need to dodge the enemies.
