App description: ** GALACTIC GUNNER FOR THE MAC NOW AVAILABLE IN THE MAC APP STORE - DOWNLOAD NOW!! **

TOUCHARCADE: "The whole package creates an experience unlike anything on the App Store, and the game feels like playing an episode of a wonderfully cheesy low-budget 80's Sci-Fi show, especially whenever the Trepidoids speak."

148APPS: "Galactic Gunner truly shines in the graphics and sounds department. Spectacularly cinematic levels are truly immersive, and one short cut scene at the end of the last level was so intense that I found myself on the edge of my seat."

SLIDETOPLAY: "Galactic Gunner is a solid buy. It's a tightly focused and memorable shooter with a lot of clever humor."

APPYOURMAC: "If you love space battles, get it. If you liked Starfox or classic arcade shooters, get it. If you just want pick up and play explosions, get it. Galactic Gunner, by Ezone, packs a pretty significant amount of fun into a tiny package."

CNET: "With cinematic space scenes, a solid and often funny storyline, and challenging gameplay, this game lives up to the hype and is definitely one to grab."

But don't take my word for it, checkout these review excerpts (including reviews from fellow TouchArcaders)...

TOUCHARCADE:
"The whole package creates an experience unlike anything on the App Store, and the game feels like playing an episode of a wonderfully cheesy low-budget 80's Sci-Fi show, especially whenever the Trepidoids speak."

SLIDETOPLAY:
"Galactic Gunner is a solid buy. It's a tightly focused and memorable shooter with a lot of clever humor."

Big Albie:
"...the replayability is definitely there if you're looking for a tap shooter, and on top of that, the graphics, animation and Aussie voiceovers are top notch."

Skamando:
"Overall, I give this game a 8.5 out of 10.
It has a good bit of fun and humor, and it looks great, feels good, and has a pleasing level of challenge... If you like arcade shooters and are into cheesy Sci-Fi, I'm sure you will love this."

The Bat Outta Hell:
"Amazing voice acting, and hilarious dialogue, just like a cheesy scifi show.
Lots of medals to be won!
Great on rails shooter
No lag no matter how many explosions
Clever puns
Encourages replay value by aiming for perfect scores
It's got Wingman A in it
Feels like an interactive movie, I love it.
Beautiful backgrounds, especially the blue planets/stars
Overall: 4/5"

Kamazar:
"I'm actually gonna play it through again The fact that the game's score is based on accuracy more than completion cranks the difficulty up a good 3 notches. Combine that with the fact that the HUD isn't stationary but instead weaving around asteroids and Trepidoids, this isn't another one of those stupid target smashing games. I'd say it beats Metal Gear Solid because of it."

Factor05:
"It is actually pretty good cobber! Being australian it is bloody funny and a great effort at taking the piss. My sheila likes it as well so she is also going to grab the lite version."

minefield:
"Honestly it's a fun and very funny game. I'm Australian but I had no choice but to laugh at the stereotypes loaded within the characters."

eggzbacon:
"Good graphics
Great voice acting
Awesome icon
Great voice acting
Awesome tap-to-shoot controls
On-rails is very well done and moves well"

APPyhourreviews:
"Galactic Gunner is a fantastic on rails shooter that really seperates itself from the pack. Set in space, you control a fighter ship and have two fellow wingmen. You tap to shoot the bad guys. Its a pretty hard game, which may be a good or bad thing, but i enjoyed the challenge. The graphics are fantastic and really set the scene for game setting. Overall, its a great game and well worth it to pick up for everyone. And its only a dollar so you really cant go wrong. Fantastic value for a fantastic game.
4/5"

Nico75:
"Galactic gunner has good depth because of the ranking system and the replayability of the levels... The best part of galactic gunner was the great graphics which fulffiled my dreams of being a space pilot from watching all of those star wars films when I was young.
What really sets galactic gunner apart is the hilarious voice acting that will have you laughing throughout the game.
The music in galactic gunner is great and the soundeffects are even better."

zlibd:
"Galactic Gunner is an ace of a game....
Also replay value is found here, as the ranking system which rises depending on how many points you have and perfect medals awarded for 100% in accuracy and number of enemies you destroy will make you want to go back and finish off every last Trep."

PureSkill:
"How else can you describe Galactic Gunner other than with Bonza, Rippa, and Struth!!!!! Galactic Gunner has it all - Music, Sounds, Gameplay, Graphics, and of course awesome commentary by the Galactic Captain, Wingman A & B, and the insidious Trepidoids!"

... True

Plus+ would work better on GG if the scoring was changed up a bit (no idea how), or else the leaderboards would be loaded with perfect scores.
