I bought it, but won't be able to start downloading it in a few hours. If anyone's expecting impressions, im sure you can finish the game before my download's even half done.

This one has been on my radar for quite a while now and glad to see it finally out there.

Here's a quick PG hands on preview.
http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhon...ws.asp?c=63824

Note that the preview is of very early in the game and while I may have a small concern about variety or replay ability, I still think it looks solid and will prove very entertaining.
It is primarily quick time actions and quick response rhythm type of game to put it in its simplest form but it is visually impressive and looks to be entertaining.
I believe there is some long term plans for it as well and should see a decent amount of updates and additions.
There is a lot of characters and character customisations in it also, so a decent bit of depth and thought put in there.

There also is some strong well known voice talents attached and an excellent soundtrack so a lot of professionals have worked on this.
Game of Thrones Indira Vrama, Joseph May from Band of Brothers, Game of Thrones Edward Dogliani and Mark Rutherford of Batman Arkham Origins soundtrack also did the music in this.
Imaginative Studios (Andy Serkis' production company) even did the full motion capture.
So a lot of talent in there and it does look very cinematic.

Edit. And so far, after a small bit of time with it, it's very solid with a whole lot of high production value.
It's quite different to the standard fare shoot em up and is proving very enjoyable and just, I don't know, different enough to stand out from the pack I suppose is the best way to put it.
Looks to be well worth the purchase.
The production values are really extremely high I have to say, top quality.
Looking like it's an easy recommend once one is aware of what type of game it is and it seems it might be perfect for mobile quick play.

Plus, it's premium with no iap and offline. I have to say that is real nice to see.

Jeez man, I'm feeling no pressure there at all now, here's hoping I'm right on this one.
Let me know what you think of it as I'm genuinely curious and I'm very hopeful they get a good response to it.
Partially because of the payment model but primarily because of the obvious effort they have put in to it.

I'm fairly sure I am right about it. I hope.
As long as people take a look at the PG plays link, they'll have a relative quick idea of how it plays.
It doesnt show the customisation that it develops later but it does give a decent idea of early elements.
I'd generally prefer something more open and fully controllable character wise but so far I'm having a blast with it.
The beating times offers a solid challenge that Im already developing a tad of an addiction to.
Sort of reminds me of how I felt about how well suited Injustice was to mobile when it came out first and how pick up and play in short bursts actually is fun.
And I still have that nearly two years later so that's a pretty good indicator for me.

And damn, it does look and sound real good when you're running through it.
Even the weapon fire sounds are real captures of the actual weapons firing rather than generic bought in sound effects. Really can find no fault with the effort put in and the results of such high production values.

I've been following their daily posts on FB for like 2 or 3 months, I didn't expect this at all.

Edit: the appstore video has the guns blurred out, lol.

Yeah, that confused me too until I read this PG article:

Very odd and slightly questionable. Therefore, very Apple-like unfortunately.

Damn you Rip. I haven't even started my download, and I'm REALLY looking forward to playing this. Doesn't help that I have a 12+ hour shift at work tomorrow. m,dfguirifklwhdkfhfo...though that might come in handy if this thing hasn't finished downloading tonight. XD
