This has a freemium structure with overpriced top tier items and such.

But I played the first five missions and this game is FUN. Great graphics, animations, sounds and controls. A great dual stick shooter.

I don't know if I'll hit a paywall but this is definitely worth a download for free.

You can add friends via codes. Dunno what for but here's mine:

Yep, this is a fun dual stick shooter.

Upgrades and aliens, hard to go wrong here.

Quite a good review.... I disagree the character is too small tho. And I'm not sure if I'll hit a paywall but I'm enjoying it tons.

Is this in any way related to Alien Shooter Survive?

Hopefully more impressions on this? I don't have space for it atm but it'd be great if I can hear some other reviews. It looks decent but is there not much to it? Is there any character customization?

And the comments say you need the internet to play?

Actually, I think it's the latest in a series spawned from the original PC retro title Alien Shooter: The Beginning (and judging from the 148apps review, Alien Shooter Revisited and Alien Shooter: The Experiment.)

I literally just started playing this so can't comment too much. Don't see much in the way of character customization, but there looks like there's plenty of weapons to be had and you do "level up" although I still haven't found how that affects your character.

And, yes, it does appear to require you to be online, but haven't tried to play it offline yet.

Overall it seems like a fun and well made dual-stick shooter. I'm still unsure if it's worth the 550 or so uncompressed MBs it takes up for it though. But I'm enjoying it.

Your character appearance changes according to the armor and weapons you use. It's quite nice. Apart from that, you can only change the character's gender (anytime you like between missions).
