Oh Sheepy. Even if your games didn't already own my heart then that line would have taken care of that all on it's own. And that's just the 2nd of 20 characters! Can't wait to see what other nuggets there are in store for us.

I know that continuity in the Air Supply universe is very important to you, and I admit it's one of the many things I love about your games. And it's really nice to see how your games (read: children) have grown, from 1 bit run to Infinite and now SOS.

I made it to level 17 with one life; I can tell that beating all 100 levels with a single life is going to be a great challenge! It's one I'm looking forward to. The controls, music and perks system are all excellent, and there are unlockables up the wazoo. Air Supply - SOS (Save Our Sheep) is all that I hoped it would be, and more.

Even though Quantum Sheep has offered me a promo code, I will be supporting this awesome developer with my cash for this beautiful product as soon as it's 11:30 pm here in the States. I encourage ALL of ye TA members to do the same. Let's help get Sheepy on the iOS map with this game! Here's also hoping *crosses fingers and toes* that Apple is generous enough to feature this game, by one of the most talented yet underrated devs on the platform.

A question for QS; I already own the two previous Air Supply games and will this one too, but for those uninitiated to the AS world any chance of a bundle? That might help with exposure to your games

It's a lot of fun! Super fast paced and super tough. But there is a good balance between getting to progress (you can continue from the same level when you die) and being punished for failing (you lose your score when you die).

As always, a great unlock system with tons of stuff! Definitely worth checking out if you're even a little on the fence.

Ah stop it you guys! Really looking forward to this, Quantum Sheep's games are always great quality. I absolutely love the look of this one, the Virtual Boy vibes are killing me!

Some imps from the upcoming thread.

This is the game to get this week.

I about peed my pants when that UFO appeared on wave 6!

The controls, there's just something awesome about em. The best way I can describe them is "smoothly retro." The jump and shoot works really well.

I'm digging all the enemy types (when those alien guys that look like they're in floating coffins appeared, at around wave 4 or 5, was quite the surprise. Their movement pattern had me all wonky!) and their models are very cheeky

Also, nice bonus minigame Very nice touch

Rubber Pleasures really does pleasure me. Makes me want to lick my phone's stereo (not really! Metal tastes gross!)

The different colors are even more awesome now. I love it.

It's super satisfying when the text pops up saying you've unlocked something too

I realize that's a jumbled mess but I think it gets my point across! (I haven't even gotten to try out the perks yet)

You've managed to tear me from my 3DS (meaning Metroid, Mega Man 2, and the original Legend of Zelda!) and I'm not mad at you for doing so!

My review from the upcoming thread. Highly recommended retro fun with toms of unlockables and tough as nails! No IAP, No ads!!!

I thought level six was kicking my posterior until I got to level seven. I love how you can replay levels where you left off. Controls are spot on. I can easily wiggly my thumb to change direction without lifting from the screen. The action button activates your boost as well as your lasers. The 2001 reference did not go unnoticed. And did I mention that I love it? Oh yeah, and I love it. I've already unlocked two power ups, a second soundtrack and a second screen color. All in about a half hours time. This will sit on my main screen in a place of honor right next to Pix n Love Rush. Awesome little game that I will enjoy for a long time. Thank you sirs!!!

i have to echo every sentiment above, and more. Most of the time when I'm looking forward to something it turns out to be not as good as I'd hoped or expected, but this has actually delivered more. I've played up to level 39 and it's just phenomenal. It's easy to get into but rewards good play. Like old minter or arcade games where you know you've got better just by playing more and you've sort of got better in an intuitive way. If you're the wrong side of 40 and went to school in the UK then this will bring back happy memories. It's also just like all the best homages updated to NOW so it works on both levels. Music, graphics, unlocks, perks, arcade or casual gameplay - and I can play as JCho and AndyC83. For me, it doesn't get any better than this.
