Way better than CR, imo. Very fun.

Agreed so far. I'm just a bit confused. Why is the developer not shown as hipster whale? What did a bunch of them leave and make their own company? Just like with land sliders too?

Really, really polished. Doesn't even feel like a FTP - more like a bullet hell shooter, since it starts intensely immediately. There's even a second control mechanism of not moving to charge a power shot. On the other hand the monetization will probably work really well, since there's a real incentive to continue (use coins or watch a video), as there's actual variety to the enemies and their patterns.

And nope. I spent coins on a weapon and it expires in 2 hours? That pisses me off.

Disappointing. I won't be watching any ads nor spending a dime. No way.

Who the hell are <Mighty Games>?!

Heya, this is Matt from Hipster Whale.

So Mighty Games was formed a little while back now by me, Ben Britten and Matt Ditton. More recently Andy joined the fold as the 4th director. We also have a bunch of lovely people working for us too, so it's not really just "Hipster Whale" on this one. Hope that clears things up a bit!

Oh and, here's the Shooty Skies trailer!

There's a second progression metric besides coins, which AFAIK behave exactly like coins in Crossy Road. It's more of a playtime meter that opens a mystery box when filled. I've received both a consumable buff and coins from the box.

[Edit] Okay, now I see the menu for purchasing buffs. There's no indication that they are not permanent either. That said, the first two are available through ads. Maybe the third too (the one I got from the mystery box). The other two are 1.5x and 2x the cost of a new character, so I assume they are beefy. So in the end I think they're fair, but there should be some text that says how long they last (maybe they're all 2 hours like the 2 I currently have).

Sweet! Downloading now. I saw this on Twitter not too long ago and was pleasantly surprised to see it at the top of the hot games section when I opened the TA app. Gotta go to bed now but can't wait to load it up in the AM!
