This IS definitely worth the download to find out for yourself (i.e. mechanic in lv 2) if you like it or not. No iap to support, only ads which work as a doubler too, aaaand, no GC.

The labor of love is easy to be seen in those variety of backgrounds, well chosen music (K.Macleod) and the design all over.

Oops, almost forgot...relative touch controls work good, imho, similar to Sky Force, even a tad better/faster.

just tried, and completely agree with Qwertz. Controls work great, no IAPs, only optional ads.

What turned me off though was that the initial gun was too limited (short range) making it a tedious grind to even upgrade to normal arcade shmup firing range. I have another game i am grinding right now, so it didn't work for me, but check it out, maybe past the grind you will like it.

Lol right, pretty short range. I mean, everything starts out kinda slow here, so don't expect a Cave-y lift off.

A few facts from my 5s, version 8.2, after restarting...
Installed size is 158 MB and and after beating lv1, i was asked to dl lv2 with an additional download of around 10 MB...8 levels in total. So an internet connection is needed to proceed.
Also, of course, the 250 coins every five minute/ads only works that way and so does the doubler after each game.
I'm stuck at lv3, simply because i can't load it down (ads-blocker on/off, same result). Going back to lv2, i was asked again to download it, sigh...
Lv1 in airplane mode works fine but no chance to double up the coins, which are desperately needed in later levels.

Needs an update imho, but maybe it works just fine for others...

That's interesting. Is this more of a Euro shmup? They're notorious for having too much enemy health in favor of slowing the game down, so an upgrade system in that line of shooters would definitely be tedious.

thanks

hey all, thanks for taking the time- downloading and reviewing our game.

@Qwertz55 we are fixing the level3 bug right now and will have the fix out asap.

There are three ships that all play very differently- some have extended range and slower bullets, omni directional attack, and short range but faster weapons. Each upgrade will make the game feel very different and we hope that you will generate enough coin to get the other ships and upgrades.

We are a really small indie team based in tucson, arizona. Thanks for your patience as we figure out bugs.
We will make it better and take all of your insights and feedback very seriously.
