Like the look of this game, nice surprise this turning up, reminds me of that old game 'Silkworm' with the jeeps appearing at the bottom

I like this game a lot so far. It's an endless space shooter with 4 worlds to unlock as you play. Sweet graphics and sounds, excellent controls, lots of power ups, universal, non-stop endless bullet hell with boss battles; shmup fans should give this a try.

Gave this a punt and bought it, had a few crash issues on my 64 gig ipod (Apparently if you have way too many apps on the 64 gig model it can cause a lot of memory issues - Apple didnt tell me this when i bought it as i wanted the big memory for more games !)

Anyway got it working now and it doesnt seem to be crashing, actually really like the graphics, the shooting noise gets a 'bit' annoying but nothing major, done the first 8 worlds and have to replay those to unlock the later levels.

'Bit' pricey in iOS terms at £1.49 but i'm liking it, some good weapons to use, nice bullet hell type shooter.

People throw that term around way too much on this forum. This is not bullet hell at all. Bullet hell is a small subgenre of shmups, dramatically overrepresented on iOS (not that I'm complaining), with characteristic screen-filling curtains of slower moving bullets. This is a pure traditional endless side scroller which I was personally very disappointed by. The ships are too big, so it's essentially like they cut the screen size of most shooters down to a quarter, making everything seem cramped and decreasing the fun significantly. I played one game, and was bored to death before it was over. I was just waiting to die after wave 20 or so but it took until 37. It took so long. They need difficulty settings (or did I miss them) and they need the intensity to increase faster.

Completely agree, was very disappointed by this one

. And glad to know I'm not the only one a little upset that loads of non bullet hell titles are being grouped in to the subgenre...
