This is surprisingly good mostly due to its responsive control and deep RPG elements.

This will be my go to static shooter for now as I find myself enjoying this title.

Cant say much about the IAP yet, but i feel compelled to buy some IAP to show appreciation to the devs with this good pickup and play game.

Very accessible gameplay, but in order to maximize it, you need to play a lot to level up the character to grind for money, and to level up and unlock new equips. For now, i only have 1 character unlocked, but he uses bows and swords. There are 3 characters to unlock with Gems, and i think each one has different playstyles which will make for some excellent replay value.

Also, there is a coop play option but dont have anyone to test it with.

For those who like shmups, check this one out. It's a shmup variant that's done right!

It's also free, so get it and see if the game works for you!

Looking forward to trying this when it hits the U.S.

Co-op mode!!

But it's co-op 2 in one device, allowing me to control 2 players at once.

Still enjoyable, RPG elements are spot-on.

Played a little longer. Level cap is level 40.
Once you reach level 40, you have an option to promote to next rank, which resets your character to level 1, nothing else.

Game ends at wave 66, where you face the demon lord, then the game ends, leaving a message about future updates...

If Diablo and Team Fortress had a baby, it would probably look like this:
