Well, I'm enjoying this game so much on android... Definitely play this on my ipad... I believe it'll be better to play the game in bigger screen... A great game.. really recommended.. Also, I dont see any IAP for the Android version nor ads.. Wondering if this one has or no

Too bad it has no game center

A "Survive as long as you can" game without Game Center. It looks great and I'll give it a try. But I hope they add gc.

Anyone else playing this?

It's pretty good. Has a wonderfully tense atmosphere, and you almost care about your little globs due to their scared trembling animations. Gameplay is simple, but twitchy and fast-paced. It gets very hectic as monsters come from all sides in hordes and then your little group starts getting picked off one by one, or committing suicide, or maybe you shoot a survivor in the face in the chaos.

For a free game, seems pretty fair and not that grindy compared to other games.

Wow judging by the comments here this game seems to be as good as it looks. I have to give it a try. I wonder how is the replayability level of this game?

It's simple, and twitchy. All you do is tap on the incoming monsters to shoot them. It's not complex, there's really no strategy or depth, and you shouldn't expect a experience with a lot of variety. Those aren't flaws or negatives, that's just how the game is

It's more of a waiting-for-the-bus, a few minutes playthrough kind of game
