Galactic Assassin?

Just saw this in the iTunes store. As a fan of top-down shooters, was wondering if anyone had tried it. For only 99 cents it might be worth a shot perhaps?

I like shooters too, so I decided to give this game a try, and I'd like to get my money back...

Anyway, the game has awful tilt and touch control, is extremely choppy and has poor collision detection. This is by far my worst iPod game purchase so far, and I've bought some crappy ones

A future upgrade will hopefully make this game playable/enjoyable, but for now I would not recommend this game to anyone.

When the graphics look like they've been stolen from another game, stay well away .

I think you can get your money back. If you email iTunes within a week of your purchase with your receipt, I think you could get your $1 back

I wasn't being serious about wanting my money back, it's not like you can do much with a dollar nowadays anyway, oh wait, I could buy a better 99 cents game
