So I bought this game out of love for pixels and my natural affinity towards games like Geometry Wars. Unfortunately it didn't really deliver too much. The game is sort of just bleh, and I get that it supposed to be somewhat simple; however, it just didn't fully click for me. After playing geometry Wars and some of the other games like Geometry Wars, this game just very luck luster. I do feel that if I could get further into the game, maybe...just maybe things would get better. But there's a big problem: you have to control the pixel with your finger. Now, it's not the finger part that bothers me bu the auto lock. I'll be in the midst of dealing with an onslaught of pixels, moove y finger away from the screen, come back, and boom...the pixel starts to auto target one direction. This has actually gotten me killed quite a few times because it messed me up. I thought I was going to be shooting up and to the left, but actuall I'm shooting down and to the right. It got annoying after awhile.

However my biggest complaint is the blatant lie in the description. They clearly advertise that the game has GC achievements but it doesn't. All there is is me the lone ranger on the leaderboards. If there's one thing I truly hate on the AppStore it's shady tactics.

Deleted and a possible request for a refund!

Wow! So Apple is too good to give refunds for false advertising!?!

I guess I'll try my luck and contact the developer.
