Boardumb's comments:
So Gamevil dropped support in October for this game that they originally published back in 2015, so the game's developer Digital Legends has taken it over and re-released it to the App Store under their own name. Not sure what that means for previous players or anything you may have bought in the old version, but I always liked this game and am happy to see it live on in some form. Also this new version is supposed to have pretty big graphical enhancements and I believe is iPhone X ready.

This is the trailer for the old version, btw

It is not bad and certainly it doesn't feel like P2W. After all, I've ranked first in five or six matches in a row.

The problem with it is performance. On an iPad Mini 4 is choppy. Even after clearing the RAM is choppy. The graphics are impressive but the performance itself makes it hard to play, at least hard to aim. And no, there are no performance settings. So I guess I will play a lot more of it, but when I get an iPad Pro.

First of all, it’s so pretty. Hands down the best looking game (considering what it’s doing) I’ve got.


I see an energy meter, I see repairing of guns... we’ll have to see how that pans out.

No crouch? I consider that a staple of games like this. I want to creep, hide and get an accuracy bonus for doing so thank you very much.

Why can’t I aim down the sight on all weapons? Just because it doesn’t have a scope shouldn’t mean I can’t aim a little bit better.

Bot-Fill? I can’t believe that the first multiplayer game I played was populated entirely by actual people.
Not just names but behaviour; I’d love it if I was wrong.

Feels great on on a controller; spot on. Speeds and sensitivity are ideal (for me, that’s a personal thing).

Looking forward to trying this out a lot more.
Reservations? Prepared to put some time in? Hope it works?
All of the above.
