Another amazing game completely ruined by the F2P model.
I would gladly pay $3 for this game, because that's what games like this sell for - it's what the market dictates.
From what I can tell you CAN buy a premium experience as IAPs, but it would cost you $9.
You could remove the ship limit for $5.99 and then buy a doubler for $3.

Even without the doubler, I can't justify buying this for $6 when I could get so many other games for that $6.

Devs, if you're listening, twitchy arcade games are never going to thrive on the F2P model. They are played in a one week burst and then put down forever. That's why they are all either free with ads, or < $3. Also, twitchy arcade high scorelers HAVE to have Gamecenter - they just do.
EDIT: You put in ALL CAPS - "NO PAY 2 WIN". That's pure BS. You pay money to buy gold which repairs your ship which allows you to continue the run. That's the definition of PAY TO WIN.

Great game. Sadly you ruined it.

Yup, this

The gameplay is great. I've been wanting an Accelerator port on IOS and this is the closest so far. The controls are great. The aiming reticule is such a brilliant addition, makes it so much easier to orient yourself. The sense of speed is excellent

But that damn freemium set-up and timer ruins any interest I had. Sad to such a great twitch game brought down by that aspect. If it becomes paid, I'd buy the game in a second. But for now, deleted

Edit: if you wanted to play Accelerator, here's the link:

Agree with the other two. Sorry.
Stick an outright price on it and I'll buy but as it us I shall pass.

Thank you for listening to our suggestions! Redownloading

Edit: just a heads up, guys, it says 10 ship left, but dying doesn't decrease them or anything. So don't be worried by that.

@dev - have you played Accelerator? Could give you some ideas for new obstacles like branching paths, shifting walls, etc.

Know issue. This will be fixed in next update we can't fix it that right now without uploading new build.

Yes we have We have Quake 3 old champion here in our studio so we need to play every reflex based game.

We have lot of ideas to implement but first we need to be sure that core gameplay is fun to play and for now - everyone is complaining about F2P model . We will see what will happen now.

Really glad to see this move to premium - definitely agreed that it's gone from a disappointing delete to a keeper with one change. I have a lot of respect for a dev that can take criticism and also work with it.

Going to be playing this for a bit tonight and definitely recommend people give it a second try!

Are the leaderboards Game Center? Looks like they may be Facebook which puts me off.
