Ok,

So I played through the tutorial and then played it through wave 9. I also watched every ad that I could to give you some revenue. Here are my thoughts-

What I liked:

1) The graphics are nicely done.

2) The controls! I love how you put multiple control schemes. I did not like the touch and swipe. I switched to the twin stick and holy crap they are AWESOME! Nicely done! Twin stick controls are perfect in this game!

3) The gameplay! I love the asteroids feel but then you put the twist of black holes and other fun stuff. I love the physics and flight characteristics and how firing your weapons moves you in the opposite direction. Nicely done. It's not overly done to make anything frustrating. It's just a good, wave based, time!

4) The upgrades. The different ships and abilities. You should put better descriptions on the upgrades. For instance I had no idea the nukes were automatic firing and would be permanent. That was very nice io find out but I was hesitant to buy them at first because I didn't know. Anyways I'll be playing a long while before I can get the best ship and upgrade everything

5) The non intrusive, non forced ads. I normally am a die hard anti ad nut. But I'm totally ok with how you have the ads in your game. Not only do you get $5000 for each ad but they are not forced and completely by the users choice and there are no other ads. Nicely done. As I said I watched the ads until I couldn't watch anymore to send you a little revenue.

Suggestions:

1) Please add an in app purchase, that's restorable, to double the amount of $$ you get upon completing a run. It will allow people like me to provide you some additional revenue and let me get double the cash

2) This game needs cloud save and Gamecenter support for sure. Trust me more people will download and play. It's worth the extra time involved. Some people will actually pass a game over that has only Facebook. I don't mind myself as I have 4,000 Facebook friends but others vehemently hate it. So please give it some thought. I like your game and want to see it succeed.

That's it for now. I've had no issues not any lag or crashes using the IPhone 5s running iOS 8.4

Give it a try people if you loved Asteroids!

Billy

Another suggestion is you should get coins for making achievements! Make them really worth something!

Dear Billy ,
I whole heartedly thank you for your amazingly detailed feedback!

I really like the idea of the game center integration and will definitely invest time into it, I initially wanted the game to be cross platform so this is why it felt Facebook is a good solution, but it is lacking the details i wanted to incorporate with the leaderboards like other statistical high scores and achievements rank.

The monetary reward for achievements is definitely a must..Some how i missed that idea!

Again i thank you for the feedback , and the time you took to put your review together.

Another suggestion, with the black holes, the closer you get to them the more you get pulled towards them. It would really add to the danger!

Also is it possible to move the shockwave button to the middle between the twin joysticks at the bottom of the screen ? I rarely get to use it as when it gets frantic I don't want to lift my entire hand up to get to the button.

Also when do the ads reset so I can view more?

Sorry for slamming you with requests and suggestions. I just really am enjoying the game and I'm trying to think of ways it might be even more interesting hehe. I left a nice and detailed review on the AppStore. You should see it by tomorrow. I don't understand why reviews take so long to populate.

Hi,

I've upgraded to the whippet ship. The graphics are messed up. The laser fire is coming from the right wing and middle of the ship. Like its offset to the right.

So far of all the ships I'm liking the whippet the most. The laser fire offset is just killing me though lol

It's going to be quite a while before I can make the cash for that beast lol. If you added an in app purchase to double the cash per run I would let you know much faster hahahahaha.

I'll let you know. I just finished upgrading fully all the upgrades. So the last thing I'm working on is that last effender! I have $706,000 to go lol.

I finally got it!

Yea I like the last ship. The weapon kicks ass and it's worth the $800,000

The thing is though I've upgraded everything. I have tons of cash for continues.

I have no reason to watch anymore ads for a while. You need to add some more items to upgrade. Perhaps some new upgrades for each ship? Perhaps being able to upgrade each ship itself so it becomes faster or fires faster or something. Perhaps some sort of boss battles?

My favorite ship is still the whippet though :I just like the overall design and the weapon is really cool. Now if I could spend money to upgrade its movement speed hehe )
