Please consider adding remove ads option, I am so sad when I can't support a game I love and usually if I love a game I want to remove ads it looks great lt me know if you need a beta tester

This looks awesome. Very simple at first. But then it gets going and I can already feel the thrill of collecting items and watching things explode! Fun.

Thanks Repulsa, I think it's a great idea to have IAP for remove ads. I'll update post when we get ready to QA!
Thanks Rezn!

I agree with Repulsa. There is nothing worse than a game you play constantly showing you the same ads over and over again. I simple ad removal IAP resolves this

How do you target things? Is it auto-targeting based on range and the type of object? As I see on video you only shoot to enemies, these red things. Did you try variant where you could tap object to target it?

BTW: Count me in to beta if you do one

We actually tried both! But auto-targeting is a lot more easier because the controls needs to be quite sensitive to be more fun!
I've been meaning to update the video/preview before beta within this week. Will update soon!
