Visually, I love it. Has my favorite type of graphics for a game to have. ^ ^

So far, I haven't grown to like that control scheme though.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Good find! I think I'll try it out too. It's got a yummy retro-arcade look, hopefully I won't be annoyed by the control scheme

It's a port from other mobile devices, so someone should be able to dig up customer reviews on it.

For those curious, here's the iPhone website for the game.

The mobile version only got 5/10 from Pocket Gamer, so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Ugh, that was painful. Graphics are good, I still like them. The control is not that great AT ALL, and the music is pretty meh...

For me the Graphics look very appealing, but it's time for me to hold back a little on those Apps... Think i'm gonna get this, but just not yet...

I would love to see ports of the old Duke Nukem Games or Bio Menace or the Commander Keen Series. That would be definite purchases for me. But knowing Apogee/3D Realms, that's never gonna happen...
