Belowscape-retro Blue Attack-like shooter

It looks ok, like Blue Attack but the graphics look more dull.

it's more like 2079 than blue attack. The graphics are are actually nicely retro/vectorish.

Controls are tilt to move. tap to change fire direction. It's ok, but I much would prefer a directional pad for the firing direction. I think there are better games out there.

I actually like Belowscape. Have never played Geometry Wars though but know 2079. What's definetly missing is an online highscore list.

Is it significantly different from 2079 or better in some ways that would warrent owning both?

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

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

You can drag your finger and there is a virtual control stick option in the option screen. I got the lite version and it was alright, but it wasn't good enough to make me want to buy the game.

It seems to be a little bit easy for the first few minutes.

Nice game (Belowscape) but I don't like the controls. You always have to hold the iPhone in a flat position und your fingers cover the enemies. A D-Pad would be much better.

The game is like really really watered down geometry wars. Nothing like blue attack except maybe the color blue is in the game. I really want to like this game...but it's boring.
