App description: 148apps: "For fans of the side-scrolling shoot-em-up, Apocalypse Max delivers quite a lot in a fairly compact package. Requiring a fair amount of concentration, but never overly harsh, it wants you to be a survivor and will equip you with the appropriate weapon to do so." TheVerge: "With the zombie shooter, Wandake Game Studios reminds us why we love killing undead, by doing what everyone else has done. Just better." TouchArcade: "We're digging Max. The production elements are off the wall good, which helps. But more importantly, we're clicking with its action. Solid pacing keeps you moving, while sharp level design keeps introducing interesting choices."

Exact-Psience's comments:

Looks to possibly be the best release this week. The previous 2 weeks' releases spoiled me too much that im craving for much quality than the usual casuals.

This might just be it. But im not downloading this until i finish Wild Blood so i can delete it. It's another massive 353mb before install.

EDIT: I just realized it might not be out worldwide yet.

After you destroy all panels and go back up through where the gates were, it crashes right as your going to the next screen.

The next screen is a boss fight and then that's the end of the game
Thanks for the clarification. Hopefully, the dev's will have addressed this in the update

Patch notes say it fixed the Facility, level 4 crash some users were experiencing.

As for new levels, again thanks. Took me awhile to figure out what the pumpkins were for

What this title really needs is a survival mode. This would suit the special abilities of the new characters perfectly.
I bought all characters and commando is pretty broken. Every other character is ok, but not broken. Broken as in too OP, and in turn makes the game boring.

OP = overpowered

Shame to hear about the new characters, I'll grab at least the one when I reinstall though to support dev. Would love to see some level packs with a bit more platforming involved like the later levels.
