i could see myself spending hours with this. if only it had more aiming control options, the area is too small and my finger keeps going away from the aiming spot...

if you like quick arcades with unlockables, you will like this too. Hopefully a dev will make the control areas bigger for those with iphone and not tiny fingers and it will be golden!

I was having the same issue so started using my right index finger to aim rather than my thumb and that's working a little better for me. Really liking this. Just got to the 9th floor and it's ramping up nicely. Loving the aesthetic.

This looks fantastic... Reminds me of that space shooter (neon colors iirc) that has the same control scheme. Wasnt that by Radiangames or something?

But yeah... Im definitely checking this one out.

If this is even half as good as it looks in the screenshots, I will be happy.

Yep, this is the kind of game I'll be spending a lot of time on. Also...nice way of handling the aiming too on a mobile touch device.

Please fix the aiming. My thumb also keeps slipping off the slider. The entire right side of the screen should work as a slider. I love the look of the game. It seems to take place in the same universe as RunGunJumpGun.
