Tilt to live was fun because you get to attack. This was exhausting because it was all avoid-everything while picking up a few gold dots.

And tilt still isnt my thing. So yeah... Deleted.

EDIT: aw... Forgot i bought this off my US account. I guess it helped me remember why i deleted it back then. :P

Obviously you never got a power-up in EEK (I needed ten or twenty or thirty deaths for my first one). When you get the (time limited and VERY valuable) power-up you CAN attack (sort of—smash into asteroids) because you are invincible. The skillness is to get more and more (ideally seamless) power-up modes. Read the short but important help file. Keep your ship in the middle of the screen. Pure avoidance.

For tilt lovers like me it's a must have. The controls work pretty good. You can switch sensitivity in three steps. Auto calibration on starting the game or on leaving the pause function.

Look at Lord Gek's score (4,291 world rank #22), unbelievable (but he never makes smashes)! Make at least one smash and you will be in the upper 5% of the world ranks. The global rank lists are valid (except the #1 in some lists, obviously a hacker) because there are no IAPs where you can buy advantages.

I have to admit that it's brutally hard. It has the same mechanics but other tactics as Tilt to Live, I see it as a well-made casual and hardcore variant. Love how all elements (inclusive the eeks) appear as written words, never seen that before (like a comic without pictures). Interesting blocky transitions of the menu screens. EEKY sounds. Good enemy AI. Nice complementation in my collection of tilt games—a genre where iOS always was pioneer.

So if you don't fear the challenge and can bring a tiny bit of patience and skillness for success in highscores: BUY!

yes it's definitely a hard game. I played 20 games and haven't seen a power-up yet. My high-score is 810, I try to reach 1000 at the end of the day. The achievements keep me coming back to play it more, good game

new high-score: 3542
