Old school run & gun FPS on IOS?! Need to check this out, but I'll wait for impressions. The controls need to work well for this game to work, and I've seen very few games get FPS controls right

Looks like it's got potential, not the biggest fps fan, but if it is good, It might be worth consideration.

I picked this up in the end, will try to leave impressions before the end of the day, if not tomorrow. Surprised by the fairly small file size though

So you recommend it?

Hadn't got around to it quite yet but I played it for ten minutes after I saw this. Can't say I'd recommend it really, it's very average. Weapons feel flimsy, there seems to be only one level, your view is incredibly close to the ground and the graphics aren't as good as the screenshots suggest.

It's not awful at all, but I'd certainly wait for a sale/updates if you're interested. Apologies to the dev for my bluntness, I'll try to write a better full-length review with constructive criticisms and mention more of the pluses.

Apology accepted :-) I will try to address the points you made and look forward to more feedback. Please keep in mind though that I am the whole dev team and there is zero budget on this. If I can't sell the game I can't carry on working on it.

Ah man, this is why I hate writing quick impressions - it's the negatives that stay in your mind more than the positives. I will write a better review later, sorry if I seemed disrespectful; knowing it was made by a one-man team certainly makes it more impressive!

Ha ha, yeah it's not all nice for me to read but it is still great to get somebody else's view of it after spending months working on it. It does have just one setting as it started out as a web game and hence it is small but there's still plenty going on if you stick with it and get stuck into the bosses.
