I've been playing it.

I want to like it more than I do.

The controls really hurt an otherwise nicely designed game. I like this developer's style. It may also suffer from a repetitive mechanic though... similar to Abigale.

so you are the soldier on the bottom of the screen and can move left and right. There is a targeting sight that you can move by tapping on the location and the sight moves, and you will continously fire when you are not moving.

- double tap on the left/right buttons and you will do a roll in that direction
- swiping across the screen brings in an air attack which wipes out the field of enemies
- there are a few weapon upgrades you can pick up and point bonuses.
- Appaears to be structured with a boss at the end of each level. I made it through 1 boss and half way through second level.

It's a bit awkward alternating between moving the sight and your player at the same time. There is an accelerometer option to target with, but I found that even harder to use.

Just saw this and wondered if the controls would be a problem. I'm liking the art style but was hoping to get a look at a video. We'll see...

This one reminds me of WWII Alone but the graphics and contents seem to be more plentiful. I have problem with WWIIA's control scheme, I don't know if this one has similar complaint. I think I need a free demo to see it myself.

Anyone with more impressions?

I think this is a really good game with an unfortunate release date. Coming on the heels of Zenonia, no one has paid any attention to this game, and I think that's a shame because I'm having a lot of fun with it. To me, it plays like a more fully developed WWII Alone, which I thought was a very enjoyable game in its own right.

I hope this game catches on and someone respected at this site (i.e. Big Albie) gives it a go and shares some impressions (good or bad).

Wow after seeing it in action I really wish I could get it

Since posting I also checked out Abigale Lite as Arn said that is was similar to Abigale in that the mechanic is repetitive... well it turns out that I really love that game. So I'm definitely putting this and Abigale on my snipe list until I eventually have some money to get them

According to the video, it does not look that bad. Actually, I find it better than WWIIA.
