Anybody try this yet? It tempts me with possible bullet hell gameplay.

I like the looks of it but want to know more about how it plays and controls. Honestly, I like dual stick shooters.

It's Missile command.

You have to judge where you want your weapon to connect with the enemy. If you misjudge your fire will pass right through the enemy.

There are no options whatsoever to even try any other control scheme. So my big hands are in the way. They could have put a slider on the right side of the screen and then tap the screen to fire but unfortunately there's no options.

I'll play more tomorrow and do a full review after I've given the game a few hours of play, I do like the art style, but just understand it's missile command in a nutshell.

Looks and sounds fun, but I'll probably wait until that .99 price drop then I'll bite.

"Big Spender" and disrespectful comment to developers.
