Default 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.

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.
