Looks like a cute adaptation of the traditional Snake game, and you've got me curious now. How long are the levels, and do you intend to add more content in updates?

This looks REALLY good. If, like AnarKitty said, this is a variant of Snake, it'll be filling a void that's been missing from my iPhone since I deleted Hard Lines after they implemented that $80 IAP. Bought.

Come to think of it, it reminds me a lot of Silverfish. That can only mean good thin...oh nevermind, download's finished...off to play.

Game Impressions

The game is "just ok." You should be able to control with relative touch; not only by putting a finger directly onto your character.

The way this game attempts to push IAP on you though, is insulting and unacceptable. Deleted and one-starred.

I saw you online when I was posting and I was hoping you wouldn't have checked this out before I posting something new. :/

Yeah, agreed 100%. My previous post should be completely disregarded...this has absolutely nothing to do with Silverfish or Snake and after a 10 mins of playing, it feels like I've been lifting dumbbells for the last 3 hours. Obviously didn't rate it, but deleted for sure. Sad.

Hey AnarKitty. You bet we have more content ahead! We like to think it's a mashup of Space Invaders and Snake, but it feels entirely different.

Gabrien and metalcasket- Sorry you think it sux. I'm not sure how you feel the IAP are forced on you at all. You can play the entire game as intended without buying anything. No intrusive ads, the arsenal is completely separate, etc. You can unlock all the levels just by beating the previous one.

But to each his own! Sorry it was such a downer for you. We worked hard to create something different - but we know we can't please everyone. I get that. I used to be a game critic.
