This lost me at "...and clans..."

Dunno why, but i really hate games that include social features into gameplay.

As much as I always maintain a positive attitude going in, I can't help but agree. I'm an old-fashioned gamer really, I like to be left alone so I can just get my antisocial gaming on. Still, it looks rather gorgeous so I'm about to start it up, can always leave some impressions if you're not totally put off!

Yeah, im still open to it. It's just that there's already something negative about it for me. If the general concensus is a go, then i might give it a shot.

That said, im looking forward to your imps Pete. Thanks!

Sigh... agreed. It looks good but where's the gameplay shots? Do you just tap to shoot or something? I guess I'll have to find out.

I'm getting there slowly lol. There's one massive download when you start the game - taking nearly ten minutes to complete, hadn't planned for that at all. Probably should have expected it though, 39.3mb was a sure sign that it would expand. Will have imps soon; it's very possible clans don't play a major part at all so don't write it off just yet!

I'm also waiting for it to download! I'm praying this is as good as it looks.

I really want "offline mode" (no social) and a good game. The screenshots make me have hope but I guess whenever this darn thing finishes downloading ... lol.

Well.. this game plays amazingly well. Lots of items / deep stats. Good graphics and easy to pick up.

And it's online only. Great. Not sure I want to invest my time leveling and doing "clans" on something that only works online. Such a disappointment. Online only is really ruining good games. Not sure how long I want to keep playing at this point. Its already given me a couple connection errors.

Yep, it's a pretty fun Dead Trigger style game. Feels slightly lower budget that DT but that's too be expected really, and I don't mean that as a criticism particularly.

It's not as pretty as the screenshots on my iPad 2, but then that could be the hardware's fault rather than software. It's an FPS with full movement control, travelling from wave to wave in, so far, rather basic surroundings. There's an option for autofire like DT and also manual (thankfully, as it's not perfect). The Unreal Tournament OTT voiceover is actually quite fun, though I imagine some will get annoyed.

It's crashed upon completion of the first level and I lost my progress so I'll have to replay to give proper impressions but I can see a lot of people enjoying this - it's certainly far, far better than the average F2P game that comes out these days. Just, as mentioned, be aware of the always online requirement, the rather long download time and the fact that it expands to 572mb.

Really not too bad, the clan elements were pretty light in the end - it just depends on how much you want another Dead Trigger type game really

Yeah. I'l give it a day or so. I'm about 50/50 on keeping it right now. Want to make a clan and see if it's any good Pete? I'll join you and we can see if works out.

I'm running on the iphone 6 and no crashes so far.

Btw... TIMERS.
