What a lovely surprise!

Looks gorgeous, it's funny and it sounds great too. I need to play a lot more before commenting on the gameplay and payment structure but I'm very impressed with it so far, seems to be a decent twin-stick shooter to boot.

Edit: Played a little bit more I can easily recommend it. Bullet Hell bosses, clever one-lines, variety in enemies even on the first level, multiple weapon/hat combos, levels that remind me slightly of Toejam and Earl, Game Centre achievements...it's safe to say I'm enjoying this!

Edit 2: Payment structure tops off a great game. Paying unlocks a speedrun-style Challenge Mode, Cheat Options and a new colours-style; the Super Game Boy. Best of all, you choose what you pay; 69p, 1.49, 1.99, 2.49 or 2.99. Perfect!

Yeah good find, nice twin stick shooter. Can imagine playing this on the Gameboy back in '89!

Just paid 1.49 as a 'donation' towards the game, probably wont change the colours as i love it the way they are. Did the intro mission, all was easy/okay, controls work fine. Well worth picking up and supporting

If you like it at least pay something towards the dev (and we might get more from them)

Retro graphics, good controls, retro sound, small filesize, love it
