Wow I'm a sucker for a good Shmup! Downloading now. I'll leave impressions in a bit. Kongregate is publishing a lot lately.

Nope.

Multiple currencies. All consumable IAP. Expensive consumable IAP. ENERGY TIMER system that cannot be removed by a single purchase.

The gameplay is dull. It doesn't do anything new for the genre. You can't even move up and down or diagonally. Only back and forth. And guess what the enemy ships come in horizontal lines lol. Yea.

This game is uninstalled. Nope. No way. And the game gets a 1 star review on the AppStore as well. It's utter nonsense.

This is by far the most boring shmup I've ever played. Uninstalled. Left an honest 1-star review as well-

This isn't a game, it's a money trap designed to separate you from your hard earned cash in every way possible. Energy, timers, multiple currencies, ridiculously overpriced consumable IAPs, you name it. Basically, take every complaint you ever had about every FTP game you ever played, double them, and then roll them up into a boring, unoriginal, pointless shmup, and you just scratched the surface of this "game". Do yourself a favor and stay away; the game itself is so boring that it's not even worth the time it takes to download.

Sidenote:

This is the weakest Kongregate Game I have played since they have started to port their Games to Mobile.

Absolutely agree. I loved bullet boy. I actually purchased the $5 Iap in that one. I loved last weeks Slashy Hero. Purchased the no ads in that. Awesome devs there. I just don't get what the devs were even trying to accomplish with this game. Would anyone honestly spend even a dime in this ?
