I don't get this forum sometimes. How has this thread not blown up yet? One comment and one video? Seriously? A shmup, where you're a diety...who shoots bullets out of his/her/YOUR finger...and no one seems to care? *facepalm*

The game's a blast (pun intended), btw.

The screen shots made me hesitating but the clever cut video sold me.

iphone talking: NO wide-screen support!!!

I'm pretty pissed of with those two dead black bars. My rant rating 1star.
Don't even want to talk about a possibly very cool and crazy game. Oh yeah, i was so exited for another shmup, i completely overlooked that Gamecenter is missing as well.

Edit: do you have a full screen version metalcasket? If not, why no info about this fact?

The lack of Game centre doesnt ruin it though does it ? Not a show stopper, e.g. its not weird controls or that ?

Looks an interesting type of game, probably give this a go later. Got an iphone 6 but not too worried about black bars.

Yep i admit i somehow missed this the first time, this is whats great about the forum, when people kinda say 'come on try it its great' and you look and realise you've missed a potential gem.

Just bought it and had a quick go, REALLY like it. Love the retro style graphics (surprised i didnt get it the first time just because of that). Looking forward to playing more later. Thanks for the thread bump !!

The artwork got my attention, and Metalcasket's comment challenged me. I love this game. Once you get used to the finger weapon, you get going really fast. Normally I don't care about Game Center but this game is really screaming for it, hopefully it will be added in an update soon. Also, I think there is a bug with the high scores in-game. Mine is not recording. Either that, or it only records when you win the level, not after you die? Im not sure how it's supposed to work. In any case, well worth the 1.99.

This is pretty good. A great idea for a mobile shooter....I love the dynamic of lifting your finger to avoid damage as if you were literally dipping your finger into the screen.

Looking forward to unlocking the remaining areas. So f I understand correctly each area is opened for endless high score chasing or are they levels that end of you last long enough?

I thought the same thing when I woke up this morning. I expected it to be at least a few pages long by the time I got up! This is a really good game!

Looks fun, but stuck on loading screen on 5S 7.1.1.
