App description: "Crashsite" is a Third Person Shooter with a "UFO: Enemy Unknown" touch.

As an operative of a private military contractor of the Usa : "Daimonion" you investigate mysterious alien activity, that takes place around a multidimensional object - "the whirlpool", that exploded into existence presumably after an accident in a secret lab somewhere in Northern America.

At the beginning, invaders that break into our world, have significant problems adjusting. Their ships seem to just crash by themselves( left to be reverse engineered ). But they start to pose a bigger threat as the game progresses.

Extraterrestrials invade, destroy cities and "format" the terrain to make it suitable for further colonization. Preventing them from progression is a Crew of mercenaries commanded by a feisty heroine: Eez, aided by a nifty arsenal of spaceships, and weapons, also expandable by DLC.

The game is open ended. It is you who decide where we want to fly in a ship of your choice, what sites to investigate, which enemy ships to fight, and what powerups to unlock.

The game plays different every time, offering a versatile, interesting experience, that fans of action-shooters yarning for more depth, are sure to find totally satisfying and unique.

D@mn it. Exactly how the video looked, even though I was (stupidly) hoping I wasn't seeing what I was seeing.

Oh well, thanks for the report.

I give up.

Yeah, looked like the dev went overboard on the graphics; as well as adding unnecessary (and odd looking) effects. Like the rainbow sheen on the buildings.

It didn't need to have that much grass in the open field portions, etc.

Strange, checked but didn't saw this thread.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

What you mean terrible controls?? Can you be more specific? What you exactly didn’t liked? I believe controls are better than in any other game available on the AppStore. So I will be glad to know, what could be made better,…. perhaps in the next update.

Everyone can see how easily control the game, by just watching the gameplay movie (above), also you can see how framerate looks like… so what device is making framerate problem?

There are 3 possble control schemes: virtuals stick (seen in movie above) gyroscopic, and point and click.

Virtual sticks are design better than in typical shooters, because there is no fire button. And you can touch whole right pad to open fire, and slide the finger if you want to look around

Simple and easy solution, that will become standard in the near future

I dont own this game but when we are talking about controls in 3D game the answer is simple. Controls must be like in shadowgun, dead space ect ect. Screen sliced in two halfs. Other side moves and other aims. No matter where you touch. Stick controls are so lame and they dont fit anywhere than in real gamepad. I hope developers really test other games to find this fact. How nice looking and awesome game would be, no-one isnt interested if controls suck.

Like i said im not talking about this game because i never tried it. Talking 3D touch screen gaming overall...

in Crashsite, there is a solution for those who dont like virtual sticks. In options menu select rotation: screen, this options allow to point enemies with you finger, instead aiming with virtual stick.
