Is it Freemium? Or is free the introductory price that'll go up?

There aren't any IAPs, either. Hm. Any impressions?

Game Impressions

This one fun shooter! First off the IAP's that I see are only to purchase more cash packs to buy weapons. There are some grinding, but not as bad as some PAID games. The cash rewards seem fair (IMHO), you get cash drops from enemies and from class advancements.
Graphically, beautiful, smooth animations and vibrant colors.
Sounds is solid and weapons sound like the have some power to them.
Gameplay is fun and entertaining, more so if you are a dual stick shooter fan.
Overall, probably the best FREE game I have seen in a long time, it doesn't bombard you with IAP's and the system seems fair. Get it you will love it.

Tried only the survival mode and 2 story mode levels and the game seems pretty decent. The controls are what you expect from DSS. You can buy grenades, and to throw them you press a little button above the shooting stick (similar to Age of Zombies). One thing that I'm not crazy about is you have limited ammo in your clip before you need to reload (auto reload or manual reload). I suppose this adds more strategy. The game is pretty hard with the equipment you start out with. I've only been able to last ~1-2 minutes. It should be easier with upgraded weapons eventually I think.

When killing enemies, they drop "blue orbs" (which you collect to increase the score multiplier) or random pickups (ie: cash). Different power ups pop up randomly (ie: "vengence" which seems to be unlimited ammo for a limited time, health, etc..). The only real complaint for me is the duration from when the items appear to when they disappear seems short..but maybe this just adds to the challenge.

There's weapons and ammo clips you can buy. It sounds like the ammo clips increase the amount of ammo you can fire before needing to reload. At least in the survivial mode, the rate you earn cash is pretty slow. I earn 1-3 "dollars" for each game..and some of the weapons I think. In the story mode, you earn a lot more cash (ie: 50) for the first time you beat a level. Don't know yet if you get more cash for the later levels.

There's 2 "twists" they added to (at least in the survival mode). There's a similar "3 missions at a time" like for Jetpack Joyride. Similar to the PC game Crimsonland (and probably iOS's Crimsonworld and even Solomon's Keep/Boneyard), you level up in the game and pick from 4 different perks.

Overall, the game seems pretty fun, but difficult from the Survival mode that I tried. For a free game, its pretty fun so far. Looking forward to beating the game to see the new enemies and levels.
