Hyperwave (SHMUP) ->Free

Not sure it's free yet. It's by the dev who made Hyperlight, and, IMO, is quite a goodie.

the ads between every level are pretty damn annoying. =o/

Seems decent. I always liked the concept of Hyperlight but didn't like the controls. This I can work with..

This is what's holding it back from being great. The actual game is good though.

Dang, I actually was one of the few shmup fans that bought this at launch, since most of it knew it would go free very quickly. But never would have believed, ads would be added later.

But free with ads??? Dang, I when I bought it, it didn't have ads, now everyone (including people who bought this game like me) have ads. Why couldn't they have just let us early adopters have no ads like a lot of games do. Why? Bad developer.

Anyway, mediocre game, ads, and ok to play for a short time, but gets repetitive. One of the few games I regret buying, but I am a shmup fan, and get almost every shmup on the market even small name ones like Alien Crusher Pro. That game is 500 times better than this one.

Sigh, developer, please remove ads for the people who bought this app please if you are reading this.

Not recommended!

Ads between levels? Blah!

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

Ouch. Based on the iTunes reviews, the ads aren't going over well...

Whoops.

Yeah, why pay for an app when they just add ads later. Don't mind the price drop, but nice way for us paying customers to be rewarded. Guess the developer doesn't give a damn. Just add ads and make it free. What a dweeb, never buying jack from catfish games ever again.

Totally not recommended.
