Platypus or Dropship?

Every week I have this predicament of what to buy from the app store and this time its shooters. What do you guys think is better, or does anyone have any other suggestions for shooters for that matter?

dropship by a mile. cheaper and more fun IMO.

dropship is more polished and the controls are wayyyyyy more innovative. i hate the controls in Platypus... using touch, your finger covers the left of the screen and LOADS of major enemies come from that side.

Haven't tried Platypus, but Dropship is pretty good.

Dropship. Much more fun and you can resque your contact ! Platypus is a scrolling shooter and you only can go up down back en further but you are always moving.. Dropship also downloads new maps that are released automatic so you get maps like a Christmas three and stuff..

Dropship is one of the best games I've ever played on any platform. It is superior to Platypus.

Both! If you have enough money at the moment, I strongly recommend both titles.

both games are alright but dropship is a bit more entertaining. It seems a bit overhyped by some people here though.

But íts a nive addition to your applibrary.

Dropship is less than I expected, and no it isn't anything like Venger. But still a really good game.

both

they are both real gems
platypus because of the wonderous charming graphics
dropship owing to the advanced interface
i can understand people liking dropship more though
so you could get that now and wait for a pricedrop on platypus?
