It's so beautiful! But so infuriating because more often than not, i have no space to move. Big enemies, spawning right at 75% of the screen. I think this was what annoyed me with the first Phoenix also.

Not only do you have to slip between tiny tiny cracks in the bullet pattern -god help you if you can't see well- , you have to do it on almost 1/4th of the screen.

Beautiful, but not my cup of tea.

@AKD thanks for creating the community. I joined.
@Anyone does anyone know what the icon I Thess upper right hands represent? My guess is it represents what the aura defends against.

Also, does the icon in the lower right hand represent the width of the ship's blast?

Wow!

Pretty awesome! I signed into my firi account with no issue. I played through the tutorial and got my first ship. Amazing job devs! I'll have more impressions later!

Thanks for the nice responses guys! Glad you could sign back into your old account LordShad0wz

@ramzarules: If slipping through tiny cracks is your main gripe or challenge, I would suggest using ships with mostly defensive Aura and Zen abilities. Look for Bullet EMP, Stun EMP, Point Defense and Barrier Aura abilities. For Zen Mode the Personal Shield is good defense or Kappa Drive to charge your Aura more easily.

Good question, both of these things are not yet explained in the game, so you are correct to ask about them We will add upon this with future updates.

The top left is the damage type of the ship. When you tap on the ship it also mentions 'Strong against: x' underneath the weapon, which corresponds to the damage type. Some enemies are equipped with extra Shields or Armor, this is visible when you hit them through either blue or yellow pulsing effects. When you notice a lot of blue pulsing during a daily mission, it helps picking a ship that deals shield damage and so on.

The bottom right icon indicates the rarity of the ship. There are currently 3 rarity levels. All of them are obtainable via the Warp Gate, some simply more than others

Thanks! Currently it's not yet possible to see a list of all the members, but once you played the community mission you can see the names on the leaderboard on the score screen or in the 'Missions' tab.

Thanks Selachi -do you know your nickname means Manta Ray btw? - will try to acquire on of those ships then, through the gacha or the credits. Or one with faster bullet cancel aura recharge.

Have only made it to Act 4 wave 2 on today's mission, and i get frustrated but the beautiful screen pulls me back for more...

ya i figured it out thanks Selachii. I can just see all the improvements in graphic effects with phoenix 2 over phoenix hd , you should add some of those awesome particle effects to phoenix.

So i know i am going to buy credits, is there other ways to gain credits beside beating your previous distance?

and what about adding a health bar? so you can take 3 hits or something. I notice when you kill enemies they drop green auras which in the first game healed you bit.

I love the new shield thing you added , when you destroy bullets maybe add a in app purchase where when you destroy the bullets in the shield it gives you a credit per bullet or something like that to get credits a little faster....
