KDR_11k's comments:


Just bought this game, not really convinced so far. You run around and shoot a big laser, trying to knock all enemies out of the viewing area. Since you can sweep the beam it's no problem wiping out a quarter of the enemies at once if you manage to get into a corner (and the score system rewards sweeping attacks like that) and the main difficulty seems to be getting out of the initial onslaught since you start every wave in the center of the screen while the enemies spawn all over the place and all close in on you simultaneously. There seem to be unlockable weapons but I only have the regular beam so far.

Man... I passed on this game initially, but now I'm thinking I should rethink that decision.

Ack, my finger hurts.

The control scheme is annoying, you move where you touch and charge by holding the finger on the screen, means you usually have your finger right on the most important part of the action (the part near your character) so cheap deaths are inevitable. I like how weapons are unlocked by dying a lot instead of being successful since people who die a lot probably need all the help they can get.It's very big on crowd control but the way the controls are you can't really deal with crowds well.

Oh and it's nasty on the battery.

Does the dev know that this is a MULTI-TOUCH DEVICE!?!

Also, how many deaths until you unlock a weapon? UPDATE: I finally got one. I think this system is a little convoluted, though; you should get pity weapons, but still be able to unlock them through story mode. The people who are good at the game don't get rewarded for their troubles, and the people who know how to unlock new weapons just waste time dying over and over again.

I just noticed this line in the app description:
