The game looks and sounds fantastic. Shmup's aren't really my thing, but this one is tempting me

skysmash?

Is this perhaps a sequel to, or is made by the same dev as, Skysmash 1918 (which I really enjoy)?! Awesome!
Gonna d/l this morning. Below is Skysmash... interface / screens look rather similar.

i like this style of game. was fan of the arcade version. downloading now.

well i dunno what to think of this game. normally i really love this style. but this just seems like its missing something. action seems slow. and you do not get to keep your fire power from one level to another.
them are my quick observation. will give this game some more time to grow on me.

What's missing?! The fact that it takes a god almighty METRIC BUTT-TON of shots to down even the first tiny planes on the first level on the easiest setting. I love vertical shooters, and this is an almost unforgivable mistake. It hurts even more because other than the required hit-count, I REALLY LIKE THIS GAME! The graphics are gorgeous, I love the "zoom in / out" for the high-altitude vs tank bits, the sound is nice, the music is neat - but why oh WHY does it take a zillion shots to take down even the smallest enemy craft? Even the RAIDEN series (king of the "if you bomb the bosses, you'll just piss them off and they'll bring back more firepower) understood this unwritten law of vertical shmups. Let me be clear, I really love everything about this game... except the shots required to kill! AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHH!H!

It's still very slick and well worth a d/l, though, and I recommend it.

Your skills are weak.

HAHA, just kidding, is it really that hard? I'd love to give it a try since I love shmups, but not if it's going to cause me pain. Bankshot does that enough already...

Just posted news of the release to MustTap, good luck with the release!
