it is REALLY a good game.

It's a sort of modern spin on space invaders, with a robot insted of a space ship. You tilt to move left-right and touch on screen to shoot. Between levels you can upgrade your robot using credits you won fighting: weapon (how many bullets it can shoot at a time), speed, armor (how many blows your robot can take - it goes against speed since your robot get slower, so you have to determine your best compromise between the two), and shield (it works like armor, but it doesn't slow you down and it's not permanent - once your extra shield is gone you won't have it back in next levels, you'll have to buy it again).

I just had my first game, on easy difficulty I made it until round 19 before dying (I didn't continue, but you can do that). On each round you fight a wave of enemy space ships - sometimes one of them will leave the group and come towards you, just like in space invaders. Some levels seem to be sort of boss levels, with a stronger enemy. I upgraded weapon and speed at the maximum, and two levels of armor. Actually I think my biggest mistake was getting the second level of armour, because my robot got too slow for my tastes. I feel like I should have taken only the first level of armour, and then spend my money on temporary shields. I'll remember that in my next games, that will probably be on higher difficulty.
Overall it's a five stars from me - nice graphics, good controls, fun gameplay and online leaderboard.

When in itunes, search for the game. When page comes up with all the options, click on All Apps in the game section. It should read free there with the "get app" option.
