Nano Fighter or Occurro?

Which is more enjoyable and contains the most longevity?
If you have one, is the other still worth it?

I've been playing Nano Fighter for some time, and got Occurro today, here's my take on the two of them:

Both games have good graphics and sound.

I have noticed sound clipping in Occurro when you have the upgraded shot and there are many enemies on screen.

Both games play in Landscape mode with the home button on the right.

Both games have online scoring - Occurro's has location based scoring, but also has adds.

I still think that Nano Fighter has the smoothest controls of any twin-stick fighter, hands down.

I wish Occurro had a "fixed" dual-stick control.

Occurro does have a well implemented tilt to move control, and does have variable ship speed based on how far you move your thumb from center.

Occurro feels more like Geometry Wars, i.e. it's got a box you play in, whereas Nano Fighter is completely open.

Occurro forces you to move by recharging your shots as you move. Anybody who has played Nano Fighter knows that if you don't move, you're dead already so it's basically got the same thing.

Nano Fighter has the option to start at later levels once you've reached them.

Occurro has a built-in flashlight and srobelight.

I would recommend both games for $0.99 for fans of the genre, they're quite different games from each other.

I'll have to spend more time with Occurro, but for now I like Nano Fighter better.

I'd recommend Nano Fighter as well, if you're looking for a closed-arena type of shooter like Occurro, I think I would recommend either Isotope or Light Wars before Occurro. It's a nice game though, I don't regret buying it.

It beats both occuro and nano fighter

Isotope sure does beat both of those but I still like light wars for the simplicity of it.

I agree completely, but that isn't what he asked in this thread!

well if I had to pick between Nano Fighter and Occurro I'd probably go with Nano Fighter.

I have Isotope, Nano, and CS.one but Occurro is the only one I didn't get yet -- though Touch Arcade gave it a really nice review I don't know what I am waiting for.
