Space and shooting, hardly can resist. And Space Junk (lite available) is from these Devs. A reason more for me to support them.

Yep, some nice Minter-vibes here. Your character stays (almost) in the middle of the screen and you only control him with a flappy style up and down on the left side. Shooting is done on the right, no buttons. Good and responsive, both. There are aliens to save and they will follow like Lemmings until their mothership is coming to pick them up. The more the higher the points get. But when you get hit, you lose all of them. You start with three lives and eight different enemies try to hinder your success. If you miss to save at least on alien, the mothership will shoot you and you lose one live. Otherwise is says "thank you Dave". Every 10k you get an extra live.

Some don't care but i do - NO Gamecenter ! A lot of games don't have it implemented lately, so for me the replay value is bottom low and no recommendation possible. Could have been a nice highscore chaser.

Thanks for your imps Qwertz555. I saw this and was ready to buy...especially after the space junk reference, however I'm with you in regards to the lack of Gamecenter.

this is right up my street and is fantastic. shades of defender (best game ever including the future) and dropzone. really, really, really needs gamecenter but a peach for 70p as is. Gamecenter would keep me coming back as I'm sad like that.
A very overlook, it would seem, little pearler.
