That's pretty cool! I really like the graphics and the chiptune soundtrack! It took me a while to get used to the controls, but once I was able to actually hit enemies it got much more fun! :P

I would love to see a Game Center leaderboard and better share screenshots - how about a snapshot of the actual gameplay, maybe highlighting our best chain streak or a boss kill? And please allow us to save the screenshot too.

By the way, what's the "combo bonus" shown at the game over screen? It's always 0 for me.

I believe the combo bonus is how many baddies you killed in a streak without wasting any bullets.
I keep getting to the 2nd boss in phase 3 and he is tough!
Love this game and bought the remove ads IAP 👍🏽

Wow amazing polish in this little gem, once I got a feel for the controls I got to the 2nd boss before he crushed me. Interested to try out some of the other ships.

Just now realized you can hold down the BLAST button to let out a charged beam blast 😅

Thank you all for the kind words!
I'm working on an update with Game Center/Leaderboard support, I'll keep you posted when its out.
And another thing, App Store US picked up Dodge Blast in "New games we love"! Pretty amazing!

This game is good, definitely well deserved spot on the front page 🙂

Could you add a pause button? I know I can just close the app but...
Unless there is one and I missed it?
The controls are awesome and a clever idea
