Wondering what the IAP is all about?

ATM, I'm seeing $0.99 each to "Unlock Homing Type" and "Unlock Shielding Type" ships. There's also an option to watch a video to significantly multiply [gift] APs, which are used to level up. [There's also an option to watch a video to get stage completion points, which can be helpful if you're just short of the number necessary to unlock the next stage. Neither the IAPs nor the stage completion points feel intrusive in any way.

I agree with squarezero below. It does feel remarkably like the .Decluster games. But more bite sized, given the individual stage clearing. And I like the bomb mechanic better than the bullet-canceling one, since holding one thumb on the screen while trying to maneuver with the other became cumbersome on higher difficulties. One thing I'm not seeing yet is any incentive to not level up as much as possible.]

As far as I can tell, two bullet types (homing and shield) at $.99 each.

Just picked this up, so I've only put in a few minutes into it. First impressions: it'a what you would expect from the dev of .Decluste Zero.

Thanks, I think it like this one better, more colourful and as mentioned, the control is slightly better.

This is pretty good. Bullet hell with a more casual approach. I finished chapter 1 and only died once. Chapter 2 is much more difficult. I like upgrading stuff. Normally bullet hell games are all about perfection and high scores. It's fun to complete mini missions and buy upgrades from the rewards.

Love controls and presentation. Early levels feel way too bitesized. This game with changing randomly created levels (like Phoenix, or changing daily like Phoenix 2) and it would never leave my device!
