Out in the US too. Downloading the lite version to give it a shot.

Edit: It's pretty much unplayable on the iPhone 4S, as it suggests in the description. The buttons are far too small. Hopefully there's a quick fix to that.

Nice little game, played a few levels. Shame the fire button is just a 'fire' button and its not a fire in any direction you want button (sorry for the crappy explanation !).

Only minor criticism is some of the screens where it says 'tap to continue' i tap, theres a pause so i'm unsure its registered so i press again and of course the next screen comes on and goes instantly as it then registers my second press. Not a huge biggie though

Crashed a few times on my ipod 64 gig ios5 but i've done a reset and tried again and now it seems fine.

I'll probably buy the full version later, like i say shooting 'can' be a bit tricky but you get used to it. Nice little indie game

Played on ipad 2. Tried 1 & 2x, the game looks awful on either. Came back to watch the trailer again to make sure i had the right game! The difference is night and day... I was playing the lite version, but didn't see any of those nice effects in the trailer.

Defo try before you buy!

Played the lite and I feel like people are being really nice to this game. Graphics are real bad and I never care about that stuff. Controls were real laggy for me as well. When I'm killing people with a chainsaw it just looks like I'm pokeing them with a big red glowing stick until they fall through a wall. Try the lite for sure if you are thinking about this game but I would definitely say its not worth more than that.

That's my experience with the game as well.

Yep must admit i think i went a little over the top, first played it and it wasnt bad, but then the shooting was getting frustrating, chainsaw annoying and just got a bit dull.

Shame as it has potential but it needs to be a dual stick shooter instead of fiddley trying to point in the right direction to shoot the enemy. I'm glad there was a lite version to try though
