Bullet Sky II (Universal Front Network Co) $1.99 to Free





Played it for about 10 minutes (wanted to make sure it wasn't really bad) and it seems like a fun, pretty sharp shmup

Woh... This is surprisingly good.

Cant get this thought off my mind though...

Phoenix HD has been cloned. Not really a bad thing since i really love Phoenix HD's mechanics, and this one seems to have its own unique take on the formula, but it is more Phoenix HD than any other shmup.

Enjoying it so far, but the currency revives may just kill this game for me in the long run. For now, i will enjoy this.

Could only download a Chinese version, which requires some sort of log-in. This is annoying. Are you guys seeing a log-in requirement in the app downloaded in your local stores?

Update: Just input random stuff into user name and password and it let me play. Nice controls. Very smooth. The bottom section of the screen is for moving your finger, and the ship moves accordingly in the upper part of the screen. My only problem with the game is that it's kind of dull. Shoot down a wave of smaller ships, and and a big ship (the same ship every time from what I can tell) appears, and you shoot it down.

Weapons are upgraded as you collect ... not sure what you call them ... the drops from enemies after you shoot them down. Their bullets on the screen also turn into smaller drops. These all contribute to your weapon's power meter. Every time you get him, you power meter drops. If you get hit when your power meter is at zero, you die.

Beautiful, beautiful game. Controls wonderfully. But to me, it's a bit repetitive and lacks soul. It needs more variety.

Not sure on quality but just a heads up, the first Bullet Sky is also free as are several other games by the same dev. Some have ad removal iap and whatnot, but the first Bullet Sky seems iap free, though it is iPad only.

Yeah i'm really digging this game. Too bad its so IAP based.

But at least you can earn the "premium" currency.

Pretty sharp game overall!

Why does this app require digital compass

It's got a built in fungshui meter.

I jest.
