Yeah... The dungeon-crawler-esque dual stick shooter that i've loved since a few years back, is still pretty impressive.

This game deserves more attention, and i hope this sale gives it that.

Alien Shooter: Survive is on sale for $.99 also. iPad only and first sale in three years so I guess this dev does not have sales often.

No problem. I've been recommending it, and picked it up, at full price. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

Me too. It's so much like a dual stick Doom, aside from the "high" (really not) price of $5, I can't imagine why it didn't get more popular.

Good find. Thanks C7. Might have to pull out the old, new iPad and give it a download.

Alien Shooter is a blast; definitely a steal at $2.99 and a really great game with mazelike levels... swarming foes, environmental puzzles, wanton destruction... great soundtrack too.

What I did. Totally swayed to buy. Hadn't really looked at the game before the price drop but by far worth more than the discounted price of one dollar.

Same thing for me. Didn't know there was a lite version and picked the game up immediately after trying the lite version.
