Dragged across the universe by a sinister fate, the Petralites must now confront the avatars of death. Destiny, it seems, favors a new breed, a ruthless unfeeling technology bent on the extinction of mankind.

Game Impressions

Runs very smooth on good old iPhone 3G—something that I cannot tell about every fast paced arcade style shooter. Thanks for the freebie! Will leave rating and review in Austrian App Store.

It's actually a really nice shmup. The main ship design could've been a little more elaborate but other than that it's great.

yes the gameplay is really nice but the GFX are not so much exiting.
so don´t get fooled by the looks. Attack patterns are also quite old school, which is fine with me,

Are you still planning improvements to this game or is it complete as is?
I managed to get to the asteroid level. I can't believe this game didn't get more attention.

Edit. I think that I may have found a bug: my progress doesn't save. It was reset twice now between game starts. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

There is always possibility of updates depending on user feedback.

In terms of progress saving, it should happen every time you shutdown the app. Are you multitasking (iPhone 4)?

Great game. I will be sure to recommend it. Is there a sequel in planning?
