Acheron Prime price drop

If y'all have been waiting for a price drop now is your chance the game is 99 cents.

(If this thread was made my fault I'm late to the party)

Reviews say there's crashing but that was from August and it has had some updates as well so maybe its better

It looks pretty decent. The reviews before the last 3 updates all point to the space combat not feeling good and issues with the control stick releasing when your thumb gets out of it's limited range... making following ships and stuff difficult.

If anyone gets this, post some feedback about the game. I still have GoF, GoF II, Galactic Phantasy (and GP Prelude) and a host of other space RPG's to play... but if this one is good I may opt in for adding another one onto the pile.

Galactic phantasy series I didn't like and prelude before the updates was IAP bound I never touched it since so I don't know how it is now.

I've played some of the first one... I thought it was pretty cool. I like the way they handled the battles in the game. The need to retreat far enough to safely recharge was a pretty nice mechanic. I haven't tried GP Prelude yet... but I'm hopeful that it's playable without IAP, despite getting the game for free.
