This is spectacular. Yes, it may look like it utilizes a slingshot based mechanic, but consider it more like flicking by use of a virtual joystick and not by pulling back Angry Birds-style. My only issue after about 10 mins of play is that it’s missing auto screen rotation.

EDIT: By “auto screen rotation” I actually mean ANY screen rotation. Just to clarify, the game runs only with the home button on the left.

Let the complaints about its premium price point begin...NOW!

Looks good but why so expensive. Is it worth the price? I don’t want to hate, only asking.

Price doesnt bother me. Far better than a freemium game with ads. We want premium priced games dont we ?

The lack of screen rotation is a pain though !

For a game initially developed for mobile, Im really surprised at the lack of screen rotation. Know its a different dev, but their publisher, Raw Fury, should have caught that.

Well, it's the EXACT same game as on PC, Switch and consoles (yes, I know...the Switch technically IS a console) releasing on the exact same date, for the very same price. Yes, it's unusually expensive for a mobile game, but one has to commend Raw Fury for basically saying they consider mobile an equal to all other platforms.

So the gameplay. You move the joystick. Do you press fire or does it move or jump automatically ?

So its pretty good ?
