Very intrigued by this, and looking forward to impressions from those who play through the game.

Your artwork is visually stunning - a hybrid of 8th grade doodling and Jean-Michel Basquiat! I love it!

I almost passed this one over with all of the epic releases this week, and I'm glad I didn't. I haven't seen a 2D flying game this fun since MiniSquadron. They can't quite be compared though, as this is a totally different beast.

You fly a classic biplane in defense of your city (or farm, or whatever the map may be) against waves of invading alien caft. The aliens as bent on destroying earth, and will shoot wildly at your buildings.

Controls are entirely tilt, with button to hold to fire, and a special weapon. The tilt controls are tight, and with practice you'll have no trouble tracking faster targets. A minimap along the bottom shows the location of enemies, along with the health (outlined) of each building.

Graphics are a lighthearted pencil doodle style, with wonderful detail and character.

Missions are slightly varied. Primarily you'll be protecting buildings, but occasionally moving targets like blimps.

Enemies are also varied. Some examples include standard drones, faster ships, slower downward-firing ships, heavily armored and straight flying, motherships with regenerating escape pods, etc. Upon death, enemies drop green orbs which can be collected and spent on disposable special weapons.

The only IAP I've encountered so far is the $1.99 to unlock the full game. Green orbs drop freely, and I've never run out as long as I don't spam the most expensive attacks.

The one thing missing from this game would be either an upgrade/RPG system, or multiple types of planes with unique abilities.

Awesome game, similar to Mini Squadron but with a totally different vibe to it. Will gladly buy the unlock! Thanks!
