Frustrating when you flick through the 10 screens and theyre either repeats or theres no real in game shots.

Cant really tell how it'll play from those

It's from Uppercut and basing on those screenshots, i bet this is a christmas spinoff/reskin of EPOCH.

If it is, I hope they add a different equip/skills/character progression of sorts than the one in EPOCH to determine itself from it.

Still, it's from Uppercut Games, so this is instabuy.

EDIT: Also, the repeats on the screenshots are from the iphone and the ipad versions.

If you look at the screenshots, they actually ARE ingame shots, the words were added after, so it is actual game play. (Atleast for most of them)
🙉

But yes, screenshots do not do a good job of showing HOW it will play.

This is basically a reskin of one of EPOCH's survival arena, with a completely new twist. Instead of having skills that you activate between cooldowns, all abilities are pickups, and as I expected, the coinage is too easy. This means a grind is still needed to complete buying everything, but not when you want to change to something.

My first game alone got me 826 coins, and the most expensive item i see in the shop so far is 10000 coins.

I love how there are about 8 (not sure, wasnt really counting) locations, as opposed to EPOCH's 3 locations on each arena mission.

This is definitely worth the buck you spend on it, and it is a game that can be finished (complete collecting items and upgrading powerups) through the holidays.

Looks great on the ipad too, and the game is just EPOCH-polished all throughout. Highly recommended!
