Disclaimer: I plus the shit out of this game in its initial alpha and beta forms.

Lol

With that said let me tell you:

Why 5 Stars?

I know I've been throwing a bunch of 5 star reviews out lately but honestly some great games have been released. This is one of them. First I want to say you can't have a better development team. There were several rounds of testing and at every single step they listened to criticism and requests and implemented so many of them. They changed the in app purchases to make them better. They drastically changed the gameplay and added so much depth. They really did listen and they would immediately respond to every message.

So the game is a side scrolling Shoot'em up that isn't just a simple Shoot'em up. You have power ups. You have character and power up upgrades. You have reward boxes that give you stuff like currency and power ups. You have currency which is used to upgrade everything and buy power ups and you can purchase an IAP to double the currency. I purchased it. It's worth the money. The gameplay is fast and intense. The amount of enemies and mini and large bosses is pretty decent. It's not meant to be too easy.

The on screen controls are done really well. I like the default sensitivity.

I cannot recommend this game enough. When you put all of the components together it's really a fun 5 star experience and I know this dev team is dedicated and already plans on more content.

Great surprise! Wonderful game. I do wonder how much content is inside but it does sound like there's a lot.

Only gripe is that I would prefer some kind of visual joystick type control. It seems like you can tap and hold anywhere to move the character but I would still prefer some kind of "locked in place" control mode.

And a side note is that the text doesn't fit under the app icon unfortunately.

Surprised this doesn't have a million downloads yet. The developer put in a lot of work on this game and it shows .
Every other week it seemed to be updated with lots of content .
Can't wait to put in some more work

5 Stars for me too.
been playing this from the first build and keeping on it.

Devs were really listening to our complains and suggestions and every new build was really something new and bigger.
The game is really enjoyable, too bad that with the latest release it has becoming something too much memory-eater and my poor oldie 4s can't stand it.

I wish them for a big success!!!

Ah I played some of this in testing, very responsive and original quirky shoot em up and with a lot of character. Not yet downloaded the latest, will do that next time I am on wifi.
