I cannot even begin to stress how incredible the aesthetic is. Shelly, you NAILED that old school PC feel. Killer stuff. KILLER!

The gameplay's quite great in its current state, but I'm crossing my fingers for the relative touch update to hit in the next couple of days. That said,I love this so far and would wholeheartedly recommend it NOW.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

I know from the upcoming thread that (hopefully top-notch) relative touch controls should be included in the next update. Of course they already should have come with this released version. A must have in any shmup, especially when enemies or shots are coming from underneath. But i'm very happy that the default controls hold up to the pace of the gameplay very well. Otherwise i make it simple on this one:

This is a very special shooter and i highly recommend it! Congrats team!

Edit: in any case, please consider to include a sensitivity slider for the relative touch controls.

This is such a sweet little SHMUP! Very unique and fun to play! I've only played a few games, messed around with the really neat UI and settings, but yeah, what MC said:

I unlocked the endless mode, and oh boy, this is totally another challenging beast compared to the campaign mode (i call it so).
The relative touch controls are now so much definitely needed, not kidding. Maybe also a second leaderboard, because i hardly get a score over 1000 points so far, and this endless mode gets Bullet Hell. Really love it!

I nice touch for mostly ipad users, the portrait mode is playable in both directions.

Oops, didn't realize that the endless score gets 2x counted, so no need for a second leaderboard. Well, if it works. Actually, this is already a challenging goal to top your score from the easier starting mode, and to go even further after that, lol, of course.

Is this a bug?
I'm still with my default mode's score on GC (2955). Watch my picture and do the count, please.
