Software engineer & astronaut Alex wakes up to find himself stranded on an unfamiliar and hostile alien environment with no memory of who he is or where he came from. What was the purpose of his space mission? Where is he? How can he escape? These are but a few of the questions that Alex must answer as he strives to survive.

Hmmmm not bad. 155 mb installed by the way so its quite a hefty one

Played about 6 or so arenas/rooms, was getting a bit samey. I was hoping this would have been more exploration as the controls are great (top marks for the dev allowing you to move the joystick from the right corner to wherever you want).

Just a bit samey, if this had tons of rooms/corridors to explore and you can fire for example it'll be a great game.

From the video it looks like it opens up a bit more but looks like just larger arenas ? Has potential though

Thanks was hoping that was the case, i'll play more later. I'm enjoying it as it reminds me of a longer 'Jet Pac' style game (Jet Pac's a classic game from the early 80's)

Have to agree with psj above. I liked it but I felt that it just needs a bit more animation for the main character and the enemies too. It really did remind me of jetpac too (god, how I loved jetpac). I'll stick with it as the screenshots show more than I have seen as I've pretty much only been avoiding enemies in enclosed spaces and avoiding a large enemy who shoots you and you have to turn that shot onto the enemy itself. It's just missing a bit of warmth and polish for me.

Thanks for E4T6LWH3XLPN.

I'm just into the "meet my friend" level, but i like how a bit of strategy is
needed to beat the beast. Controls work very good, though i really would
like to have a rest-point in the middle of the button (don't move).
You know what i mean ?

Installed size is MB 154 (i don't care) but the app loads fast with good
music (for my taste) and a nice female computer voice with a very
enjoyable good humor.

From the credits, this is a one-man-team with some help.
The iap doesnt work atm, it shows 'error'.

I will buy some later, since i got the game for free and i wanna support him.

Yep. Unfortunately iAP does not work at the moment. I've already submitted update to Apple, but Apple needs couple of weeks to review update.

Thanks for your support!
