Grrrr... I typed a whole lot of text but my browser crashed and i lost all that i typed in.

Basically what i wanted to say is, the game can get boring with static enemies that just stand there for you to avoid and attack depending on the zombie type.

Controls are very responsive at what they do. 3 lanes, and you swipe up and down to transfer lanes. Tap to throw a ball, and tap the icon to do a special.

There are boss fights but ive only encountered one but didnt get to defeat him. He was ok though... he was moving between lanes and throwing bombs at me.

Im not sure if i can recommend this yet coz it can get boring fast. But the game has some potential.

So this got 2 stars?
I thought TA only handed out 5 star reviews?

Ok seriously who thought it would be a good idea to put Shaq in a game after the disaster that was Shaq-Fu?
I am thinking about buying this though I just have to see for myself!

Just defeated first boss and it was HARD. at least after you get defeated there is a continue boss fight option. There is story in between stages too.

Ok after a few more games... Deleted. Sorry, just too redundant and boring.

Thanks for playing, we'd love to hear your feedback!

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your interest in ShaqDown. We're the makers of ShaqDown and would be glad to answer your questions about the game.

In terms of game modes, when you beat Story Mode, you unlock Survival Mode which is all 3 stages in one continuous loop - this mode is where you'll show off your skillz on the leaderboards.

By playing the game, you'll earn Shaqra(points) to unlock outfits for Shaq that modifies his abilities in the game and makes the game slightly more difficult. This is all in training so that you'll master the game and really excel on the leaderboards.

We've been listening to everyone's feedback so far and are keeping them in mind so that we can make the game better with our future updates.

There's been a little confusion to the combo system and how that benefits you in the game and so we're going to address that in the next update with a realtime tutorial as well as some more combo indicators.

Also, we hope you play through so you get to see the last 2 bosses, which are much grander than the first one and truly tests your skills!

We hope you're enjoying the game so far!

Best wishes,

- Hiptic Games staff

This game should get a lot more credit imo. Yes it does have great art style but I found it simple and fun. Not a bad game at all just does one thing well. If your expect a huge game you would be disapointed though.

This game is awesome! I'm surprised no one is talking about this game. The music in the game is great. I'm wondering how to beat the 2nd boss as well.

The graphics remind me of Shank.

This is somewhat challenging. I was able to take out the first boss within 30 seconds to get all of those achievements, but the second boss is offering me some difficulty.

I've found I need to deflect the missiles using an uppercut (for some reason the slam always kills me). I haven't been able to get the health down past half yet. I'm still searching for ideas on how to get his health down quickly, especially if one of the achievements is to kill him in under a minute!
