Looks nice, but im not sure what the gameplay is.

Also, having a NOVA-esque icon doesnt help boost this game's first impression on me.

oh... and dat mech.

Downloading, this game is coming from a very passionate studio which I know very well. The game looks gorgeous.

Well , I certainly was not expecting the type of game this really is
looking at the screenshots and reading the description.

Frankly ,I was hoping for a squad based strategy game. This looks more like an
arcade shooter.

Looks nice....just not my cup of tea.

Well that's disappointing... We've really been hurting for shmups on the iOS since Cave went down. I'm REALLY hoping their upcoming title gets the genre active again. =o/

Ugh, might have been sort of interesting if the squad even seemed to run and or maneuver as individuals together. But instead they literally seem to float in tandem up the corridors like they were conjoined triplets. They might as well be a spaceship the way they move. It's so painful looking.

Yup. I actually only have Phoenix HD and Danmaku Unlimited 2 left on my ipad.

I hope someday we get another good shmup. Though right now i'd prefer a more modern or new title, instead of a port.

Wasnt there a recent 2-dollar shmup title that had a sale down to a buck over a weekend for its release? That might be worth checking out, but im not sure i can find it.

EDIT: Found it, and it isnt a shmup when i watched the video. Sky Patrol :P

I downloaded the game and loaded it up and the first screen it requires you to make an account. There is no explanation why nor is there anyway to play as a guest. I am not making some account when I cannot even try the game to see if it's something I might like.

Uninstalled.

Have you tried FullBlast? It's relatively new and tons of fun. Not really a bullet hell like Cave shmups, but it's awesome nonetheless. FullBlast, Sector Strike, and Darius Burst are my favorite iOS shmups.
